    VPI is making it for Shinola. Are you familiar with them?

    I am very familiar with them, and I am not a fan of the direction the company is taking (even before this Shinola showed up). This won't be a rebadged Classic 2 or anything like that. Again, I would be very happy to be surprised if it turns out to be good.

    What kind of stack-up do you use for 3 layer? I've never heard of anyone doing that before.

    I bought my first piece of Schiit, Valhalla 2. Excellent amp, I like it better than my Woo WA6. Awesome amp, great price. Definitely adding a Schiit DAC. Going to check out my tube rolling options this week.

    I would definitely recommend going for a multibit dac from Schiit, which ever one that is in your price range.

    Do not mean to derail, I have been listening to the Valhalla 2 all day and I love it but sometimes I wish it hit harder. Do you think that is more the nature of my HD800s?

    Why would I want a VPI turntable from Shinola instead of a VPI turntable from VPI?
     
    To me, this sounds like VPI is trying to reach the Urban Outfitters sell-a-turntable-in-a-clothing-store crowd, currently dominated by Crosley.
     
    Example:

    If so, it will be built for looks to a particular price point, sonics being a 3rd order criteria.

    I would have thought it would be more to do with an aesthetic to suit their particular customers, something a watch nerd could appreciate - me rocking a 10 y.o. $60 Lorus [​IMG]

    That's the nature of the Valhalla 2. You get wonderful imaging and resolution but not a ton of impact. I think it's a pretty great amp though.

    Good to know. Thank you.

    Schiit arms race
     
     My first Schiit was Bifrost Uber>Asgard 2 feeding MrSpeakers Alpha Primes. Engaging, but did not throw any shade on my living room Bel Canto C7R feeding KEF Reference 1s. Then upgraded to Bimby. Quite a bit better, but living room still better. Next, Asgard 2 and Alpha Primes were replaced by Jotunheim balanced into Ether C Flows. Now, the headphone system started putting the living room to shame. Finally, living room gets Yggy + Hegel H360 to replace the C7R. Living room back on top, by a mile. I fear what may be coming to the headphone system [​IMG]

    I'm saving up for a Yggy for my speaker system, which will also have the Jotunheim installed via Freya. I currently have a Mimby in there that will return to the desktop secondary system when I get the Yggy, so thinking of getting a Vali 2 again to pair with that (I gifted the first one I had to a friend).
