I apologize for resurrecting this thread from the grave but I didn't see the case in opening a new one since the question is related.
I just got a Schiit Valhalla (just placed the order). And I also own an Audio GD Fun (DAC / AMP)
For digital sources I was thinking
Source -> Fun (As Dac and Preamp) -> Valhalla (Amp) -> Cans
For my Marantz TT-4000 I'm considering two scenarios:
a) Turn table -> DJPREII (Phono amp) -> Fun (Preamp) -> Valhalla (Amp) -> Cans
b) Turn table -> DJPREII (Phono amp) -> Valhalla (As Amp) -> Cans
I'm wondering if a) is not too long to degrade sound?
I'd preffer using a) since then I can just use the Fun as an input selector for everything (Coax is CD/DVD/BR/SACD, Optical is apple tv, Analog is TT, And there's USB for spare).Oh boy I love my FUN! Otherwise I must put splitters or a switch just before the Valhalla.
I'm using good (but not rich people) interconects: http://www.snapav.com/p-183-b7-aud-1-r.aspx , the lenght is 1 meter.
Cans are: Beyer T70 (250ohms), Senn HD650 (300ohms) and Grado SR225i(32 ohms).
So what do you guys think? Thanks!
Either a or b sounds great to me, though I'm guessing the Grado's may not sound their best do to the high output impedence of the Vahalla... but other than that, go for it and enjoy!
