I really don't get all the fuss either hehehe. If it was a 50/60hz ground loop hum that was audible through headphones then that would be a different story.
I'm waiting for either buyers from countries with 2 prong ac outlets like the philippines to see if it won't have a groundloop problem in those countries. Just like those valab dacs, their 110 volt versions were fine but the 230 volt versions were humming like hell. dunno if it was due to a grounding problem of the design or if it was just because the 230 volt versions werent as good as the 110volt transformers they used...hmmm.
I should probably ask mr Stoddard directly if the Asgard will have those grounding problems with countries without a third ground prong on the plugs.
