Valhalla delivers large voltages into high impedance headphones. Why it's not a good match for ortho's? Valhalla can't supply the current

that you need for low-efficient and low impedance ortho's.

Haha, he was more Mr. LCD-3 With No Amp for quite a while (it was a sad sight at the meet)

Good to see that you're finally going to get yours!

I hope to be in that boat soon.  My Mjolnir has been ever so lonely, but my tax return is supposed to be deposited Monday and it's brother will be ordered exactly 2 min. later! biggrin.gif

is anyone using their Lyr as a preamp for a desktop speaker system?  I want to and was curious about thoughts you guys may have.  Just got my Lyr and Gungnir today, first rig, haven't taken my hd650's off in about 3 hours bigsmile_face.gif

A great rig.  Congrat's

  May be a really stupid question, but I'd like to get the Mjolnir and was wondering how well my little Modi will do with it until I can upgrade to a better DAC? Apologies if this has been covered. I'm on info overload at the moment. It would be powering HE-400/LCD2.2

post #1196 of 7175

Unless you intend on sinking quite a bit of money into a DAC, really your not going to see very much of an improvement. DACs reach their point of diminshing returns rather quickly. Its not something your going to notice much of improvement on unless you quadruple the price basically. I just bought the Modi, and use it with my D5000s, and plan to use it with the HE-500s too and dont intend on selling it unless I completely upgrade, which even then id grab another pair of headphones, and a new tube amp with it before then. So yea.

 

BTW to those going to buy the Modi, and pair it with any other higher priced Schiit gear than the Magni, dont expect the same sexy brushed finish. The Modi is a very similar color, but is actually powercoated, or so I believe. It certainly feels like powdercoat. Not a huge difference, not enough to even bug me(and im quite picky) Ignore cell phone quality pic. If anyone needs a closer comparison or better quality pics let me know and I can bust out the DSLR.

So you're suggesting a 100 dollar DAC is the start of diminishing returns? rolleyes.gif

post #1198 of 7175

If I were you I'd try to swing a Bifrost, if feasible. Although, even at that point there are many DACs (including Gungnir) that are better, Bifrost still holds its own and is a value DAC.

I used my lyr as a preamp for my fostex's desktop speakers for awhile and it worked well, I say give it a go.

I am currently using the Mjolnir / Modi with my LCD2.2.  It does not have the same detail as my Bifrost, but is working out well as a temporary solution until I get my Gungir.  It also allowed me to stop taking my Bifrost back and forth from my living room to bedroom.  You will want to upgrade, but it gets the job done and I still love the sound of my LCD2/Mjo running through it.  Hope that helps!
