Have those can's always had a bit of treble harshness in your opinion?  I auditioned the Rev 1 (have heard the Rev 2 but on Woo gear, not my own) with my system but found them to be very natural, more akin to a HD650 on steroids, smooth, 3D, rich, organic.  I'm all tubes, DAC through amp though.  Just wondering if most people thought they had a bit of a treble spike to them.  Congrats on the UCLA attendance btw, almost went to Berkeley but the tuition was out of this world if you're not in-state.  Looks like I need to get my hands on a Rev 1...

Personally I think they sound very good together. I had a chance to switch back and forth with another member's Lyr (and try various different tubes) and the best I heard the Lyr sound was as good as the Asgard but not better (all of course IMO, and I also typically don't listen very loudly). Still want to try a Mjolnir though.

Bought the NAD M51 as a DAC / pre amp to some active speakers - but before I move it over to it's planned position, I put it in the head-fi rig. Hm. It might be there longer than I planned.

Wow those two pieces of equipment aesthetically compliment each other a lot more than I was expecting, nice rig!  Pic of the speakers?  Or we can wait till you've got them permanently settled for the full visual effect...

Very nice Hagen. Where did you order it from?
post #8695 of 18812

Locally in Norway: http://www.hifiklubben.no/produkter/stereo/da-konverter/nad_m51_da-konverter.htm. Price in USD is 2100 and EUR is 1600.

 

They just got a new batch into the stock after quite some time - and I jumped it.

What an awesome combo. And you consistently take some of the most beautiful pictures.

As I see a lot of Norse Cables here,I just received my adapter cable(LCD2 Moon Audio chain mail8  cable adaptor to Hifiman HE500)and it is a huge upgrade in sound compared to the HE500 silver stock cable.

Will post pics later...just wanted to say that Norse is really UP THERE!

^^ Thanks. The initial impression is that the M51 sounds a tad meatier than the V800. Which one I prefer is uncertain p.t. The Mjolnir is not a bright sounding amp. Quite surprised by how well the Mjolnir performs with the LCD-3 and LCD-2.

That might be a Q cable
