Well, Steve is a pleasure and his products seem amazing. I can't wait to get my cable...then interconnects....then silk wrap. Silky cotton maybe?
Do you notice a improvement with... presuming... Steve's interconnects?
Yep, all from Steve...
I can't really say it's an improvement, but (to me) it seems that the Q-Audio interconnects just "get out of the way" of the sound...certainly better than the generic interconnects I was using before I got these. But YMMV...
Yes, they're very nice! Weightless and super flexible...
No, I have not but I have heard really good things about them here in the forums.
We might need to move this discussion to the cable thread as it's a bit off topic...
Nope. Steve is calling it Slutty Cotton. I guess we're getting intimate= Deep Discounts!
Damn this thread! I ordered the following:
Both are highly rated by What HiFi and the Future Shop UK is selling them at reasonable prices. I'll give a full review next week.
Would Bifrost + Asguard be a good combo for Beyer t70s?
Based upon research so far, other affordable contenders for me are
Audio-GD NFB 2.1 or NFB-17
Nuforce Icon HDP
As you can see price range ideally $500-600 max
Most of the above have balanced XLR outputs which I can run to my powered Mackie Studio Monitors. The Schiit combo wouldn't. But I do like the idea of having a separate dac/amp combo rather than having it in the same unit.. just seems to make more sense to me rather than packing it all into the same board.
I'd like something neutral/flat, (which DM+ is meant to be from KenRockwell's readings etc). Or perhaps somethnig with a bit of a bass bump. Definitely not bright, the T70s have plenty crisp detailed highs as-is.
