I'm hoping to be owner of B&A combo soon. I was ordering them from Schiit directly, but remembered the VAT, that would be added to package. So, instead ordered them from european reseller from France. It just feels that delivery is taking ages! I ordered them on 7.1. and still no word from frenchmen that they would be on their way to Finland. I even contacted them few days ago, but haven't heard anything back.

I just recently bought HD 650 and I don't have any amp to power them. Even my untrained ears can "hear" that they don't sound nowhere near their capacity when driven directly from my Galaxy S2 or computer. This is a long wait.

 

Congrats on your order, it's a great combo! Not ideal that it's taking that long but when you get them I'm sure it'll be worth it!

7.1 ?

We're talking July 1, 2012 ?

 

Far, far too long.  Something is not right.

In the US, typically, resellers do no charge your card until the day the product ships.

I do not know anything about Europe.  Perhaps they are a non-stocking dealer and wants the funds up front before ordering.

 

If it were me,  I would look for another dealer that has the gear in stock and order through them.

I hope your card has not been charged.

 

All-the-best.

Or January 7th 2013, which I hope is the correct date.

You're probably right.

A little confusion there, but what I'm really getting at is " Is the gungnir going to be a good enough dac with the statement amp for a balanced system?" or

do I really have to buy the "statement" dac also?

 

Thanks

Depends if you want a great normal DAC or a great digital platform style DAC.

The Gungnir will be fine with statement amp. Although, the statement DAC will obviously be better and more full featured.

Like every other discussion....100% subjective.

Gotta go with the flow and what you want and need now.  It changes to darn fast for anyone to speak authoritatively.

Well originally my post was entirely different because I confused amp and DAC cause I was distracted. You don't need to buy the statement DAC but it seemed like that was what you were planning on doing. If you are waiting it out with no DAC what I would do is get the best DAC you can while making sure it will have good resale value later. I am sort of in that position now with Gungnir waiting for the statement but ready for a new better DAC already.

It's been few weeks since I ordered them. dd.mm.yy would be the european style date. At least my credit card is charged, so I seriously hope they are going to fulfill their side of the deal. =) It's just that those Senns don't impress me without any amp. I even thought of buying some portable dac/amp for the wait, but I know that after Schiit is here, the wait seems a much shorter time.
