Do you mean most of your headphones are plannar magnetic? If so, yes Valhalla 2 can drive them better than other OTL tube amps but it wouldn't be my first choice. It's primary goal is driving HIGH impedance headphones, everything above 100 ohms or more.Not sure if that is the right thread for my question, so apologies if not.
I am looking into buying a Valhalla 2 amp, and most of my amps are plannars or low impedance (sub-80 ohms. most around 30-40).
I understand the Valhalla 2 is good for those, but coming from SS amp - I am looking for a "tubey" sound (most reviewers keep claiming the Valhalla 2 does not have "tubey" sound).
Any recommendations for tubes to give it a "dreamy" / "euphoric" / "tubey" sound?
Thanks in advance.
Also, every tubey, dreamy, or euphonic sounding tube amp I've ever used really just equated to lack luster amp design. And not really anything special that the tubes were doing.
I guess we could try and find some tubes with really rolled off treble and bass.
