    The LED on the Vali 2 needs to be removed to provide a matched appearance when stacked with the Magni 3+.

    Why would you be stacking Magni 3+ with Vali 2?

    Maybe they have Modi -> Loki -> SYS -> Magni/Vali for options?

    And the Modi has an option for a black and grey color scheme instead of the black and red one.

    Even better, a Vali 3 with 6SN7 tube :wink:

    As in a mini Lyr.

    Is an AM/FM receiver a "me too" product? I see a Yamaha for $250 and a NAD for $450. I'll probably just plug in my 30 year old Luxman receiver. It's black and has a tuner, so it meets my not-very-strict requirements.

    Probably not. It is very 1970s though.

    Interesting, I would think you wouldn't want an amp on top of an amp for cooling purposes, but I guess as long as you don't run into thermal shutdown it's not an issue...

    Never an issue with this stack.
    Now with Asgard 2 and Lyr/Lyr 2 or Valhalla 2 I place them on spaced shelves, just in case.

    And, generally I use either the Vali 2 or Magni 3 so only one is on at a time or briefly together as I switch from one to the other or choose which HP/amp I prefer at the moment :)

    Re: GE tubes. There are two that I found to be good. The GE 6550As, and the late '50s, early 60s long plate 12AX7s. The former are widely well regarded and the latter, although not on the level of RCA/Raytheon black plates or the Mullard/Amperex family IME, are quite good (and less expensive). They sound something like the Genalex re-issue ECC83/12AX7/B759 (and are priced the same) but with a smoother top end and a more accurate balance and tonality.
