Schiit Vali 2

Schiit Audio Vali 2 delivers solid power into virtually any headphones.

Welcome to one of the most affordable tube hybrid amp on the planet with performance and versatility that eclipse amps costing much, much more. The all-new Vali 2 is a great way to get started with tube sound, without needing a second mortgage!

The Most Serious Tube Design Far Beyond its Price

Some inexpensive (and not-so-inexpensive) tube amps don't use tubes to their full potential,starving them with low plate voltages or using op-amp buffers for output. Not Vali 2 it uses a unique, class-leading power supply that gives it 60V on the plate. Combined with a fully discrete, current-mode non-inverting hybrid topology, Vali 2 redefines what you can expect from an affordable tube amp, even at 2x its price.

Roll Your Own Sound

Vali 2 is supplied with a single NOS RCA 6BZ7 tube, which can be swapped for the same tubes we use in Lyr 2 and Mjolnir 2 feel free to use virtually any ECC88, 6922, 6DJ8, 2492, etc to roll the sound to your own preference. Plus, you only need a single tube, so rolling is easy and more affordable!

Serious Power, Gain Switching, Preamp Outputs

Vali 2 delivers 1W into 32 ohms for hard-to-drive headphones and, at the same time, offers a low gain mode for low-noise performance with sensitive headphones. You can also use the preamp outputs to add a tube preamp to your power amp or powered monitors.

Made in USA

By made in USA, means made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Vali chassis, boards, assembly, etc goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Yes, the wall wart is from China, but that's it. There has to be some give and take to reach this price point.

Vali 2 is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for 2 year and tubes for 90 days.
