    Is the Valhalla 2 and modi multi a better fit for the 650's than the jotty?

    If you love a warmth representation of the music that you listen to then yes.

    If you like a realistic yet energetic representation then go for jotty.

    Personally I went for Jotty, because it's offers balanced output and a neutral amplification.




    On a side note to everyone.... Down to the LAST unit of Jotty!

    Depends on your preference. Both have the typical Schiit sound, lean, mean and a bit aggressive. Valhalla 2 has better depth, spaciousness while the Jot has more immediacy, speed. Bass on the Jot is much more defined, hits harder, cleaner and tighter. I didn't find either particularly warm. Both are about on par for detail.

    The Jot has a metallic, treble that bothered me but it's an improvement over the Magni models! overall the Jot is an end game amp at a good price and I've been tempted to order one for a while but I'm going to see if there's an Asgard 3 as the seem to do treble better than their other amps a long with the Vali 2.

    The Jot is a really fun amp!

    I'm considering (your) vali to a vali 2. Can you do the thing with the words where you compare them?

    Still enjoying my HD650s with my Little Dot MKII and Mullard M8100/CV4010 tubes, my first tube amp and quite an revelation!

    Has anyone got/had a LDII and also a Schiit Valhala 2? Would the Schiit be a good upgrade or is there alternative around the same price?
