If I buy dueling, is it still 10 ohm?

Yes, you can buy them from Parts ConneXion. They are suppose to be the best resistors for

crossover networks, very expensive.

Here's some discussion about them from agon.

that's mean need to put the resistor inside the amp? Thank again for your hep.

If possible show layout how to put the resistor, thank.

Could be, a freind of mine tried the Ref 7.1 (coming from W4S DAC2) and said he found the bass laid back.

Yes I don't think the Sabre32 chip does laid back bass biggrin.gif

Here. Those are the 10ohm Mills resistors I soldered.

I know where you're coming from, but I use this amp to power my speakers too, so it was a pain to swap the resistors in and out.

Rather than solder the resistors inside, why not just get some stackable banana plugs like this: http://www.amazon.com/Ocelot-Banana-Plugs-Plated-Connectors/dp/B003BKW2K2

stick the resistors between one pair, then daisychain off that? Then to switch back to speakers, just pop out the resistor set.

In my case that amp is a small tube amp that I only use for my HE-6. I can snip them off anytime. I don't like banana plugs, they can't be tighten like spades.

If I could find a cost effective pair in copper I would.

Any impressions on performance through the mjolnir?

All reports are very good.  Sounds like it's a winner.

The RSA Intruder portable balanced DAC/amp was very nice with the HE-6 at RMAF, and a step up in bass weight and impact over my stock RSA SR-71b.  I was surprised, because the HE-6 can sound thinner and brighter when underpowered, and they do exhibit some of those traits with the SR-71b, but not with the Intruder (nor with EF6, Emotiva BPA-1, Marantz 2240, etc).

Got audio-gd c501 intergrated amp 240w/c 8 ohm.

This tank weighted 70-80 lbs.

I will use it as a power amp too.

Will give impression with my new returned he-6.
