Thanks for such a good review! I read every word of it which is rare. I wish there were more amp reviews like it. I swear that someday i'll find a Schiit amp I love. I had the Magni but a little too bright for me (liked it). Not a fan of the Asgard but I'm weird or something. Vali is on my radar since it's dirt cheap. LOL I wonder what Schiit amp is the most neutral sounding. Obviously I don't need it to be some O2 clone.
