  Interesting. You could try to hook up the NFB-10 to the Asgard and see if it's still fatiguing. Depending on the recording, it could be the Schiit stack is being more faithful to the recording.   Balancing is a dangerous (expensive) road, but it can be fun. Hope you like the Omnis. Did you get a balanced cable for the HD650?
Totally glad to see you enjoying the new unit. I was watching it on ebay. Totally great price for a balanced dac and amp.When you compared them how long had they been on for? In my experience dacs, especially audio gd ones sound a lot better once theyve been left on for a few hours.
  Interesting. Glad to hear I'm not going crazy (or at least theres a possibility I'm not going crazy). My pair has 4 screws, but on my memory it's a very different sounding headphone. It sound a big step towards the HE-500.   Ordered blutack ahead of time, and Vegan pads are on the way. Looks like this weekend is mod time. 
      Yea, sorry. Was just poking a little fun at the people who think a little amp drives these.  Been missing the HE-6 for about 3 years now, glad to have them on my head again. It has been 3 years, but if my memory serves me correctly, these sound very different than my very early production pair. Has anyone compared multiple versions of these? Is there a difference, or have I lost my memory?
Finally got a pair of these and I have to say they sound terrific.      However, it's clear that many people were right when they said the claims of needing jigawatts to power these are terribly exaggerated. These can easily be driven off a smartphone or a tablet. No need to spend tons of money on amplifiers. Watts are watts objectively speaking.

Wanted to see if anyone's got a pair they aren't using before I a pair.   Shipping to CONUS.
Got a kind of weird issue with my DC-1, after moving to a new location. Hooked up to the computer with a USB cable and then to two different amplifiers (SE and balanced).   Hooking up the RCA output to a SE amplifier I get a pretty sustained low level static buzz/hiss. If I unplug the USB cable from the DC-1, no buzz/hiss If I take the SE amplifier and unplug the RCA from the DC-1, no buzz/hiss.  Hooking up to a balanced amplifier via the XLR outputs, I get no...
