I'm not really experienced in HiFi but to my ears , Asgard+ HFI2400 sound good. In comparision with my Fiio E17 ( I still use it as DAC) . Instruments and voices are better positionned in the soundtage and the overall sound seems denser, more controlled, more focused . Nevertheless , I think Asgard would match better with a brighter headphone than HFI-2400. Listening is far less clean with Fiio E17 but a bit brighter I think.
I'm waiting Xmas to get an alternative ( dac/amp audio-gd nfb 12.1 or Fostex HP-A3 I think) and I think I will sell both Schitt Asgard and Fiio E17. But I still can change my opinion and get a Bifrost dac to make a Schiit Combo before purchasing an Ultrasone pro 2900 next year ? ... I hesitate
If anyone has a good advice or experience to report, I would be happy !
