Quick question: should I go with this or Vali 2?
Only a few reviewers have heard the amp, since it hasn't been sold yet. You can find a bunch of opinions here:
People on that site are super keen on Vali and Jotunheim, and they like this amp too. You could safely get either. If you are happy to spend the extra $ and wait till next year, then go for this one!
Personally, I like the fact that you can learn lots about the designers of both this and the Vali, so I want both, but I have a Vali, so that will do.
I thought I'd update this thread for the sake of completeness.
I ended up getting the CTH, and I like it more than the Vali 2. This amp seems to let me crank up the volume without sounding harsh, and I can hear vocals better among the rest of the music (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNXNZWMRaQw :P). I mainly bought the amp because I thought it was a cool project and I wanted to support it, but I'm enjoying it more than I thought. I do believe everyone's ears and hearing are different, though, and I don't think mine are very trustworthy. I've only listened with T-x0s, too.
