Please don't fragment the topic of this thread.

this is about Schiit Owners, not "why I like head-fi hobby" questions.

take it to PM.

Welcome walls. I think you'll find unanimous enthusiasm from all of the Schiit owners here!

 

You'll find that everyone here happens to think their Schiit don't stink wink_face.gif

the hostility and arrogance and ignorance chills my bones

stop trolling and listen to some music, maybe your soul will elevate

i'm one of the first to buy he500 approx within a day David Mahler posted THE THREAD, and everywhere I go HE500 fanboys spit on my face about my personal honest opinion about he500. you can say all you want, and I will be glad to discuss, but if you start flaming, it just downgrade your IQ and EQ at least perceived by others, and adds nothing to your argument that he500 is not what I perceive it to be. I don't get why people who like gears have to furiously try to ban others out of speaking against it. preference is a personal thing, and I'd kill myself if everyone likes the same thing

 

Allow expression, end repression. I don't want assimilation, I want diversity, and I shall be that, not because I intentionally want it, but because I am appalled by the unanimity most everywhere I go on the internet, a false sense of harmony and joyful agreement and politeness covering the degradation of personal taste and independent spirit and opinion and judgement

 

i had the lyr and bifrost since 2011, II bought magni and modi as soon as they came out, I expect nothing hostile from this thread, it would be kind of stupid to since I consider myself a tried and true believer of Schiit, the act of supporting Schiit is one of matter of faith and ideal, without further elaboration since I am tired of elaborating it. I have been rolling 20 some pairs of tubes to upgrade the sound. I have owned more than 20 mid fi cans and current have a dozen.  The usual 9 yards of bashing on people's system defect is appalling every time it comes out towards myself. 

 

it's interesting and tried and true and tiring to see all the trolling comments always steer away from the topic of the trolled comment, here in this case my point was the price tag of he500 compared to k702 is insane, I don' t have the obligation to explain my system because I have no obligation to feed to that necessity which is maintained by trolls who judge people's opinion validity on their system instead of their originality and objectivity of their opinion and perception.

 

I did not ask for flaming but I am not going to just not throw my opinion out there. To ask me to write a thesis on why I said what I said would be insane.

If you can stretch your budget you can also get the Schiit Mjolnir. If you don't like the HE-500 from the Mjolnir or from speaker taps then the sound is just not for you. Asgard/Magni under power the HE-500 IMO, which gives them flabby bass and low dynmaic range in both the treble/bass ends of the frequency spectrum. It sounds slow/syurpy/boring instead of fast/nimble/explosive like it should from speaker taps or a more powerful amp.

 

As for DACs, you can go from the Uber Bifrost to the Concero, or if you can stretch you budget you can do the Matrix X-Sabre/Anedio D2. But IMO I think you need a more powerful amp first to realize the full potential of your HE-500.

 

As always YMMV, IMHO, etc,etc...

 

*Don't even bother responding to this ab initio unless you want to go another couple of pages of useless arguments with me like we did yesterday.

nobody needs to have a brain to know you are one of the guys that regard yourself some sort of known fanboy of schiit, I honestly identify myself apart from your kind. albeit your seemingly enthusiasm for schiit you are taking it too far I'd never bash on people's taste I'd leave them be with their own schit.

 

to be honest you should be ashamed you parade yourself a schiit expert when you bash on my stance that k702 > he500, to me that's as if I am to say Schiit Lyr> any big name 1k amp, I'd like to see how you react to that , Schiit to me is all about the facepalm of hi end audio gear capitalizing on their prestige to rob people's money, that's what they said in the beginning. Jason has not been very pronounce on this agenda, but he's doing it just right, especially on the delayed but finally carried out and seriously underrated Magni Modi stack even with the existing user base. The price tag of his ultimate flagship stack is way below some of the ultimate stuff others make that goes up to 4-5k each, which to me is just bollocks and I'd love to see people reporting the Schiit stack smoking those.

PC - DACPort LX - Magni - COP / UM Miracle / RE-400 / Senn HD202 ii / Goldring DR-150 + custom cable 

 

any parts that i need change? cause the COP is what Im loving right now

I would say upgrade the magni to an Asgard 2 the gain switch and the pre-amp and the power boost would help those phones sing.

I would not think you would need to upgrade to get the HE-500 to sound good on the Asgard 2/Bifrost.  As others have said you could get LYR or similar but IMHO it is not entirely needed.  Try it with what you have and if possible audition the HE500 on other gear later and see if you think you need more.

I think he was afraid he would need to upgrade for the HE500 he has yet to buy? blink.gif

 

On another note: there are a couple of you that need to chill out this thread could get locked due to the personal attacks being thrown around....just saying...confused_face.gif  can't we all just get along and talk about the gear and the music instead of each other???

When did you buy your HE-500? I bought my first one in July of 2011. 3 months after release. I don't remember you in any of the first 50 pages of the HE-500 threads I was in at that period. I was also the proud owner of the Q701 from early 2011 for about eight months (I owned both the HE-500 and Q701 concurrently of course)

I know what I am saying, I  was just about to apologize ahead on my contribution to the seemingly disturbance, I know I am shallow enough to not able to see the big picture sometimes.

 

like i said and you quoted, --unless you don't know about the thread you yourself post regularly in.
