Unf#*%! Believable, for the money!

 

I've owned an EarMax and Sennheiser HD 580's for 20 years, so I'm already familiar with tubed OTL headphone amps. The linestage of my old Quicksilver started developing some noise, and I didn't want to send it back, so I started using my EarMax as a...

Buttery smooth unfatiguing tube sound; built like a tank.

Farts tube noise and possibly DC offset when 1st turned on...

The Valhalla VS. Magni

 

After upgrading to the Valhalla, I thought I'd give it a review while comparing the lower end Magni that I upgraded from. Keep in mind these are all subjective thoughts, what may be a con for me may be a pro for you based on your preferences. Non sound...

releaxed yet capable treble, not overly warm/lush, timbre and neutrality, price, build quality,

excessive heat, diminishing returns,

The Schiit underdog

 

I used this amp mainly with a pair of HD 650 and it does what it is supposed to do: it has way more power than I need, it's quiet and it makes everything sound in its place. I have never heard other tube amps before, but I didn't get the "lushness" or...

Tons of juice, good punch and control, beautiful midrange, dead quiet, good looks.

Nature of tubes, heat.

This Schiit is Awesome for the Sennheiser HD650!

 

I had been looking for an amplifier for my Sennheiser HD650 headphones and tried many amps that cost much more than the Valhalla over the last 6 or so years. It's almost like they designed this amplifier to bring out the best of this particular...

Soundstage, Neutrality, Price, Size, US Made

Valhalla is a step up from Asgard, but small step

 

I'll start off by saying I prefer solid state to tube. I always found tube to be rather limiting and muddy, and I'm sure its just because I haven't listened to or owned really good tube gear. I started off my Schitt journey with the Asgard, then got...

Wider soundstage, better dynamics

Not as warm and cuddly as I hoped

Valhalla does the thing! Tube rolling very suggested!

 

Well after having a really bad experience with Amazon (they never sent me my Valhalla), I waited about a week hoping they could get one on stock (because magically they run out of them after I purchase mine). I decided to contact Schiit Audio´s guys....

High Quality, Nice Design, Clean Board, Great Customer Service

With Stock tubes give Solid State sound - Tube rolling suggested

Schiit Valhalla: Awesome Schiit Under $400

 

Schiit Audio, now that's quite a unique name isn't it? And yes, you read it right, you say it just like that naughty word that you were never allowed to say growing up as a kid. All sarcasm aside, I have recently been questioning why people spend $500+...

Huge price to performance ratio - fantastic sound

Won't drive orthodynamics

Great starter amp

 

This is my first tube amp for headphone listening, and is also my first piece of kit for my listening upgrade. That being said, the Valhalla sounds great with my lackluster headphone output from my iPhone and using the less talked about V-Moda...

Value for money, great sound, no noise

No tube rolling
