Schiit Vali 2+

Want to play in the tube pool without going full boat crazy? Well, have we got an amp for you! Welcome to the Schiit Vali 2 Plus, the most affordable and versatile tube hybrid amp. 

Tube Your Entire Desktop

Vali 2 Plus 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 the Schiit Modi DACs or Loki Mini equaliser to create a complete desktop system.

Serious Tube Design 

Vali 2 Plus uses a unique, class-leading power supply that gives 60V on the plate. Combined with Schiit's unique Coherence™ topology—the only fully discrete, current-mode noninverting hybrid topology in any amp near this price—Vali 2 Plus redefines what you can expect from an affordable tube amp. 

Roll Your Own Sound 

Vali 2 Plus 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 have got measurements—Magni Heresy’s has you covered. But if you’re ready to have some fun with something completely different, Vali 2 Plus 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

Vali2+ include preamp outputs. This means you can connect to your desktop powered monitors for a complete system—or even connect it to a speaker power amp and use it as a preamp. 

By “designed and built in California" this is what Schiit mean: the vast majority of the total production of the Vali2—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—stays local. The chassis are made minutes from their facility. The PCBs are done in Nevada. Yes, the wall-warts are made in China, but there's some give and take at this price point.

 2-Year Warranty 

Vali 2+ is covered by a limited UK warranty that covers parts and labour for 2 years, and 90 days on the tubes. That’s 2x the coverage of most amps in this price range.
