I submitted my issue through their web form.  I'll play around tonight to see if the hum is a ground loop, but the volume knob causing scratching doesn't sound right regardless.

I was using the Bifrost/Lyr with Amperex Orange Globes when I had the HD700. It was pretty impressive with the OG's taming some of the treble and providing a great soundstage and awesome bass.

man, so much animosity here, on both sides

did it ever occur to anyone , that there is no one right answer for everyone ??

 there is no "best"

"best" is in the ears and eyes of the beholder !!

what's best, and whats crap to me, is up to me, not anyone else

 all this stuff it RELATIVE !!!

somebody tell me what is expensive ???

expensive to me might be $100 set of interconnects ,

to somebody else, that could be garbage, cheap

damn, everyone is so sensitive , this is fun guys, its fun to me

so what if someone says they are proud to be ignorant ? that doesn't

effect me, there are things i'm not ignorant of, and maybe those things i am

ignorant of i don't care about.

 

a big reason some, and maybe a lot of these "high end" companies exist, and even flourish , two words: PRIDE  EGO

"my toy is bigger than your toy"

"oh yeah, mine's shinier!! "

everybody lighten up, have fun, enjoy yourself

rant's over now play nice !!

Hey imahawki,

 

Just wanted to ping on this - I went through a similar issue with my Magni last week and finally got things resolved today. After cycling different power placement scenarios (different wall, surge protectors, etc.) and running through nonDAC testing (thought it may be machine noise transfer from my iMac usb source) I eventually found out that it was the Audio Extension Cable I was using! I was going to bypass that soon anyway, just waiting on a surge protector (which came today) to be able to move the M/M into a position on my desk where I wouldn't need it.

 

Anyhoo, I posted about it on the Magni thread in case you wanted to check out the scenario in full:

Hope that helps!

 

The Modi/Magni seems quite exceptional  wink_face.gif
