post #2611 of 2614

Edited my previous post from last night to be a little less rambly(I hope), now that I'm not sleep deprived.

 

Hoping that someone can confirm that I'm not crazy.

I have no experience with the amp’s and dac’s you have tried. But when I considered a good amp to my LCD3 and HE 500 I come up with (research not listening) Auralic Taurus, HeadAmp GS-X mk2 and Audio GD Master 9. I and up buying the Master 9 and I love it. IMO it smooth, full, dynamic and has a really nice extended treble etc, etc.  I’m not saying you should take my word for it and ditch the ones you have at home now, just telling you the outcome of my research.

Having just listened to a few different combos with LCDs and with diff headphones at the NY meet, I had to get to a $10,000 rig to beat my Mojo & PWD II. I think the Mojo for the 3s is generally excepted as one of the best amps along with a 'good' DAC. Usually ones reads that the Gun fits the DAC component. 

 

Different strokes for diff folks, keep what you like, that which you think sounds best.......best advice anyone can give you i think.

^^ I too have no experience with the M/G stack though I have used both Lyr and Bifrost and the Violectric V100. This said, I'm not surprised the Violectric stack has worked out for you, if only because Lake People have had longer to develop their products and their synergies.

FWIW, based on intensively following various Schiit threads, it's my impression both Mjolnir and Gungnir are well regarded in their own right, but not necessarily always together. There seem to be many who own and are happy with one or other, and some happy with both. Of course, as you noted, different ears factor into this.

As well - but I could be entirely wrong - I think Mjo may be a more 'finished' product in the sense its technology is carried over to the soon-to-arrive Rag. Gungnir may be more transitional, a (considerable) refinement of the Bifrost rather than an anticipation of the Yggdrasil. Against this, purrin and friends rate Gungnir highly for its accurate tonality (but this is different from what you found, at least with Mjo in the frame) and good gradations of dynamics.

From my reading of the V800, it is detailed and transparent but maybe not as much as DACs that have come after, such as the Gungnir. Could the G be digging too much detail?
