Description

Details

Want to play in the tube pool without going full boat crazy? Well, have we got an amp for you! Welcome to Vali 2+, the most affordable and versatile tube hybrid amp on the planet. 
 
Tube Your Entire Desktop
Vali 2+ delivers plenty of power for hard-to-drive headphones—and also provides the low noise you need for sensitive cans. Plus, it covers all your needs with preamp outputs for your powered monitors or speaker power amp…and it stacks perfectly with our Modi DACs or Loki Mini equalizer to create a complete desktop system.
 
Serious Tube Design 
Vali 2 uses a unique, class-leading power supply that gives us 60V on the plate. Combined with our unique Coherence™ topology—the only fully discrete, current-mode noninverting hybrid topology in any amp near this price—Vali 2+ redefines what you can expect from an affordable tube amp. 
 
Roll Your Own Sound 
Vali 2+ was designed with a single tube, so you can easily swap out the supplied 6BZ7 tube for a wide variety of interesting options, including ECC88, 6922, 6N1P, and even 6CG7! Stick to the great stock sound, or find the perfect tube for you! 
 
Measurements Schmeasurements
If you want measurements, we got measurements—Magni Heresy’s got you covered. But if you’re ready to have some fun with something completely different, Vali 2+ is for you. Enjoy tube sound without tons of noise, play with different tubes without having to get a second mortgage for a matched quad, and see what this whole tube thing is all about!
 
Designed and Built in California
By “designed and built in California" this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production cost of Vali 2+—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our chassis are made minutes from our facility. Our PCBs are done just over the hill from us, or done in NorCal. Yes, the wall-warts are made in China, but there's some give and take at this price point.
