vali 2+ * I mean
Haven't tried the 2+ or 3+, but I like the Vali 2 with HA-FDX1 and liked it the short time I tried it with the B2 Dusk. Laid-back enough to complement the 'fast' nature of both sets without ruining what they're about. But 2+ has more power than 2, so even on low gain it might be tweaky on the volume pot. Might need attenuation.
Just read about the Vali 2+ not having much wiggle room on the pot. Supposedly 789 is great with IEMs, I'll add that into the fray. I' I still have an MCTH, so maybe I'll attenuate that before buying anything else.
Fwiw Magni 3+ on low gain has ok volume pot range for JH13.
Beware of the MCTH with the Andro. That loud pop when you turn it on or off (with headphones or IEMs plugged in) is worrisome. I'd be concerned about damaging sensitive IEMs.
I've got a Magni 3+. With the Andromeda, you'll have no room on the volume pot, unless you listen really loud or use an iematch. The Blessing 2 and the Magni 3+ were quite a nice combo, and you could actually adjust the volume. Same thing with the Dunu SA6.
For Andro, you'd for sure need attenuation with either amp. And iematch (ultra setting (edit: no, 'high' setting - see below)) will probably be good for tonality too, boosting their sub 0.5 Ohm output Zs to about 2.5 Ohms.
@Biodegraded I'm not sure, but want to understand: Do you mean high sensitivity (2.5) on the iematch or ultra (<1ohm)? Every time I have to remember which is high and which is ultra, I have to go to the iFi webiste. High and ultra aren't user intuitive in tandem when they are decreasing values, though I know it makes "sense."
@imackler , you're right - I mean the 2.5 Ohm setting, but thought that was called 'ultra'. Edited to clarify.
