Cant wait to see how it is with LCD2's
 I was actually rooting towards schiit mjolnir, but I think I might wait till they release their statement amp! 

You'll love it. Loads of power and super fast. Great combination.

I've got the Pan Am coming my way and three sets of tubes to roll so I'm looking forward to this weekend with my 2's.


Thanks,

Do they sell a Conductor without the pre amp now?
post #6438 of 8131

The Conductor is what it was before. But there is a new Soloist SE I think.

Soloist SL. There's a Conductor with lots of numbers but I'm not sure what it is exactly.

Conductor SL 9018 and Conductor SL 1793 I believe. Named after the ESS and PCM chips used on those respective units.

 

These however have the SL version of the amps which don't have the stepped attenuator and have the power output slashed in half.

They are probably very similar sounding to the full sized conductor. Burson launched a new program where users are able to try both models at home.

Pretty cool, might give them a call tomorrow see if they can give a factory demo of the whole manufacturing process.

I'm finding that the LCD 2 rev 2 match very well with the Meier audio classic headphone amp

Both Audeze phones sound awesome with the Mjolnir/Gungnir IMHO. For the capital outlay to acquire that stack really hard to beat them with the 2r2s and the 3s. However that is not to say that the HeadAmp GS-X MkII would not be just phenomenal with either as well. In my experience the Schiit stack was (is) a really synergistic set to go with the 2r2s or LCD3 phones. Great value for the money.

I'm interested in running mine balanced so the Schiit stack appeals to me. Kinda wish I'd gone for the V181 or Mjolnir over the V200.

I've heard the LCD-2 with Mjolnir twice (both times hooked up to a Gungnir DAC and with the stock balanced cable) and the first time I heard it it sounded amazing, second time I remember it sounding a bit cold and analytical. I was more impressed with how the LCD-2 sounded thru a Woo WA6-SE with RCA 6DR7 tubes.

yes

post #6450 of 8131
I don't know the first thing about tubes. I've been very tempted to pull the trigger on a Woo amp loads of times but the price of tubes and the confusion surrounding them (all those numbers) has always put me off. The WA22 looks lovely but the premium parts upgrade is way too expensive for me. Having said that, it'd probably be easier than changing amps every few weeks like I seem to be doing at the moment.
