I have tubes rated at 1000 hours. I’m not gonna burn off 1/4 of their life in the hopes of audio bliss.

Please turn in your audiophile member card on the way out. :unamused:

I have a Lokius w/ Valhalla

I dont think that 'ruins' anything, I mean, the whole point of rolling tubes is to customize and tweak the sound to where you like, analog EQ is just more tweaking

Usually bitperfect purists avoid tubes altogether to stay neutral
Agreed. I'm going to be adding one to my rig soon. It may reduce my crack head like addiction to tube rolling 😂

It could make it worse: you might use Lokius with tube A to attempt making it sound like tube B…and so on…

Usually bitperfect purists avoid tubes altogether because - as Jack Nicholson stated in “A Few Good Men” - they can’t handle the truth…

I personally just think the Rebel is a fantastic standalone amp, so no hesitation in recommending it! (as long as you don't need a completely balanced setup)

btw by chance I went on their site today to see they were finally restocked after months, no re-stock notification emails went out, so lucky me, I'm in the rare club now

immediately going pre-amp to the Valhalla, will find out first hand how crazy I am

No need to…we can attest to that…

From the headphone system photograph library. And I have been swept the last few days by this amazing combination! Footscray, Gjallarhorn JM Edition, Valhalla II = S-Y-N-E-R-G-Y —> 🏳 to the 🎶

Also, an idea that is percolating in my head: Valhalla II as preamplifier to Jotunheim II ( a Frankenstein-ish ‘creation’ of a Mjolnir II although without balanced XLR). Punt or pursue?…
