For my ears Asgard2 won't be a Lyr equal.  Personal Bias and everything else that goes along with it.  Perhaps I'll be surprised.

 

That said, the niche that I think Asgard2 will fill for me is the gain switch for IEM's.  That opens up a brand new segment for me, as I've only owned Apple buds.

I know nothing about IEM's other than a recommendation of the Vsonic GR07.

Yup.. can't see moving see from the Bifrost/Lyr right now. Listening to Lindsay Stirling right now and am absolutely loving it! For the first time in years, I have no urge to upgrade, just maybe add a second system.

It's always fun to play with new gear. After all, that's a big part of what this hobby is all about.

I don't expect the a2 to match the lyr. It's not a fair fight considering the a2 is almost half the price...not even considering after market tubes. For me, it's all about bang for the buck and features with the a2.

I'm hoping to be surprised by the performance of the a2. Maybe the trickle down tech from the mojo will make this amp something truly special. I have high hopes but they are tempered with realistic expectations.

Only time will tell.

Is anyone getting the A2 that previously had the A1 for some quick impressions. Personally that is what I'm looking forward to, the people that already had the original asgard, to really see if the A2 is a difference maker. I'm really considering get the A2 to hold me off until the statement stuff arrives.

I agree.

The Lyr is a corner stone for me too.

 

This is that "extra" system in another part of the house.  I tried the M/M in that role but I was repelled.

Perhaps I'll be able to enjoy the Asgard2/Bifrost.

I am looking forward to hear from you. I have A1/Bifrost and looking to buy A2/Modi. Jason recommends M/M is a better pairing though.

Especially at its price, there is no urge to upgrade which is a nice thing.

Just wondering, what USB cables are you fellows using with your Bifrost? I thought it would come with one, but I guess not.
