Um..yeah!! There are times (often) when one of my pioneers will beat out the best hp amp that I own or have owned...especially when it comes to ortho dynamic hp's. The pairing between the two can be sublime. :D

Thankfully, the "rooms" our headphones play in don't have this problem.

We just have to deal with the echo in some cases...:biggrin:

For those with a modi+magni combo, anyone pair this with some HE-400? I just got the HE-400 and a magni amp and have been thinking of getting the modi dac to pair with it. Is the lack of gain control cause any problems or does it just sound great out of the box without the need of tinkering?

I received the HE-400 and magni for Christmas and just received the modi about a week and a half ago.  The modi+magni isn't my primary setup but I've used it with my 400's for probably 10 hours and I think the pairing works great.  I was curious about the sound with no gain control but I haven't found this to be an issue at all.  I think you'll be happy pairing the modi with that setup.

Thanks. I'll be ordering the modi this week. Looking forward to my new setup.

Is there any use in keeping the Asgard 2 when you have a Lyr?  I have a bifrost uber and Asgard 2 stack.  Have a Lyr coming in 2 days.  Still barely within my 15 day return window.  Wondering if I should keep all three.  Have LCD 2.2, HD650, JH16 FP.  Would use the Lyr mostly for music and have the Asgard 2 for my IEM's and whenever I watch movies or play games. 

 

Also I'm thinking of using this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00609ZH12/ref=s9_simh_gw_p422_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0069W0YSS8EP37M7GTS2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1688200382&pf_rd_i=507846 to raise the space between the components.  Think I can use them to make a triple stack?

Where's the best place to grab some Amperex Orange Globes for the Lyr?

wow, overlap in almost all areas except my headphones  = HD600, HE-500, UM3X.

 

easiest answer first:  love my small pangea feet between Uber and Lyr, and used also with Uber + A2.

the flat plastic discs they recommend you put between feet and "wood desk surface" IIRC may make the bottom unit (Uber) a tad slippery a bit if pushed around.

these gave Lyr or A2 more air space / breathing room to dissipate heat.

 

A2 sell or keep decision-  always a tough call what to keep around as a "2nd Amp" as it were eh?

I ended up selling the A2 because at the time was moving through a plethora of other SS amps for an office location or mobile situation.  (DACport, DACmini CX, CEntrance M8)

so the A2 was just a "bit redundant" for my use case, no fault of A2 sound quality at all.

 

now with a Vali at office, I don't miss the A2 as much as when it first left my hands.  :rolleyes:
