Just picked up a Vali 2. Love this little thing! Has really impressed me. Trying a few things I ended up using it as a pre-amp for my Jot and found it to be an amazing combo. All the slam and speed of the Jot with some tube magic air and imaging. Killer combo!!! Today's set-up: Bimby->Vail2->Jot-> LCD-X My plan was to add Vali2 to my work set-up which is Modi multi->magni 3-> JH16 PROV2. I am hoping for the same synergy putting it in front of the Jot. Curious how it work out with the low impedance CIEM's (13-20 ohms), I am living on the low end of the magni3 dial, the Vali2 as a pre amp should allow me to adjust a bit. I will report back on my CIEM experience, maybe not the best option with this amp but worth a try! Happy listening!
