I’m considering a Schiit Stack of the Vali 2 and the Modi 2 Multibit.
Has anyone heard these headphones with the Vali 2? And if so, did you do any “tube rolling”?
I haven't listened to them yet, but I heard Schiit does not make good DACs, and Head Fi reviews of Schiit are often unreliable because Schiit sponsors Head Fi. Also the Schiit Vali is not a true tube amp, so it won't provide the "tubey" sound you might be looking for. If you want a true tube amp for around the same price I suggest you check out Garage 1217 or some of the DarkVoice amps.
I’ve just swapped the Magni 3 for the Vali 2 and even with the stock tube I’m happy with my decision. The Magni left the music soundomg a bit ‘sterile’ while the Vali 2 does have a warmer more ‘musical‘ sound which, to me, compliments the 6XX better.
