But with this Lyr announcement, I'm thinking that while the m^3 might offer better sound/options, the price on the Valhalla (and stuff like Littledot etc) is tough to beat. And if the Valhalla is good w/ Senn 600, that might make the Lyr a no-brainer, despite it pushing my budget.
The Asgard is currently the best match for the HD600s. They sound wonderful together! Can't wait for the Lyr!!
I thought that the Asgard was just the Schiit for Grados and Denons, while the Valhalla was voiced more for the HD600/650. The official Schiit:
"Asgard is a credible competitor even to products that cost much more. Especially if you’re listening with low-impedance headphones. If you haven’t heard Asgard and Grados, you’re missing out on one of the most amazing things in life. And, oddly enough, both low-impedance and high-impedance Senns love the amp–think 555s to 598s, 580s to 650s."
Evidently the Senns can go either way, while Grados love the Asgard and AKGs prefer the Valhalla; but which Schiit would be better for the Audio Technicas, like the AD2000 or W1000X? Somebody straighten me out please!
