Yeah, we're brothers in amps!     I made my own cable to hook up to the taps on mine too!  I'm looking to get Rag and Yggy as an endgame combo.
I've been really happy with the Audeze Vegan Pads.  I tried the Focus pads and enjoyed them but kept gravitating back to the Vegans.  I'm curious if there is a difference between the Audeze Vegan pad and the Lambskin Leather pad.  They both have the same shape but I think that the leather might offer better conduction of lower frequencies.  Anyone know?
Just a heads up...   If you own a Samsung Galaxy S5 don't update to 5.0 lollipop.  I had usb audio working for all applications including YouTube and Netflix on 4.4.4.  Once I updated to 5.0 the phone does not recognize any OTG cable or DAC.     My Setup is as follows:  S5→USB OTG Cable→Ciunas DAC→Project Ember→IEMs/Headphones.   I hope that a future update will re-enable USB audio out.
I hate to to be the bearer of bad news but if you auditioned the speakers in some kind of show room, chances are they had the room at least modestly treated.  Your room is probably not conducive for speakers and therefore the same issue keeps popping up even with different speakers.  You can try changing the positioning of the speakers further/closer to the wall.  General rule is to keep speakers at least two feet from the rear wall and don't put them in a corner.  Your...

I saw this and was like !!!!!!  I might pick this up.  FYI Audio-GD's promo prices are usually pretty good so if anyone is thinking about getting one, now's the time.
The Asgard 2 is a Class A amp.  That means it will run hot. (Schiit FAQ page says about 40-45°C or ~113°F)  What headphones are you using it with?
