On the bed is fine as long as you have a board or slab of wood that it can go on. Asgard should be on top. A small plyboard should do. It'll give the stack better balance and sturdier foundation. Also good to have space underneath the bifrost.

Yep, definitely need a board under it for proper ventilation and Asgard needs to be on top.  Also make sure the rubber feet are on both to ensure air can get underneath and betweeen them..

Using taller feet is a good idea, and if you stack them, put the amp on top. My Valhalla runs very warm and the Bifrost slightly warm.

I have the BiFrost and Asgard2 on my hardwood desk, and found the "original / stock" rubber feet inadequate.

so I grabbed 2 x 4packs  of

 Pangea Audio Pico Small Sorbothane Feet

 

and they provide nice (1" approx) separation between desk-->BiFrost-->Asgard2  allowing for better airflow.

 

I also leave the devices on 24x7 and have no worries with their relative heat output, as Jason has commented on many times.  Designed to run this hot due to chassis construction.

They don't transform but they do fold up into a nice little ball:

Haha! I'm ready for them to roll away!  Cool looking setup.  Thinking of going M&M for my office...

HD800 needs ~2.2Vrms to get really loud. The Asgard 2 can give it 10Vrms. The rest is personal preference. Does that answer your question?

 

Cheers

Folks,

 

just got my Gungnir/Mjolnir and the balanced Moon Audio Silver Dragon HP cables. Source is my MBA through a BNC Halide to the Gungnir and from the Mojo to the LCD-3. First impressions, everything has opened up by a few orders of magnitude especially the high end (compared to the Bifrost/Lyr). The sound detail and stage is amazing. I am literally afraid to turn the volume past 9 o'clock. What can I say, the weekend awaits ! biggrin.gif

Don't be afraid! Be ready to receive stunning powerful emotional aural input! Even with the stock balanced cable the phones totally rock and the amp/dac provide clean accurate non-colored output to the LCD3s. I have a few hundred hours of listening in on my system and still amazed at the sound quality presented. The M/G stack plus the LCD3 is a really synergistic combination. For your first cranked-up session might start with Pink Floyd Animals and get ready for listening to everything you have to hear it again for the first time! Everything sounds awesome on this system. The amp and dac are not polite but rather very non-colored and the amp is very powerful to drive the 3s with authority (understatement). Instrumental placement, airiness, sound stage are all awesome. The amp and dac tend to offset some of the warmth of the LCD3s and the detailing of rendering is very very nice. Buying this system is definitely some of the best money I have ever spent on anything.

Wow, what a response ! You've got my adrenalin going, and after dinner now, it's going to be the Floyd alright! Thanks a ton
