Hey guys, I currently have Asgard 1 and HRT music streamer II (DAC). I feel like upgrading. I think I'll definitely upgrade my HRT to a Bifrost, but I don't know what to upgrade my Asgard 1 to. I don't know if I want to get a Lyr, I've never used a tube amp and it seems like dealing with them is a huge hassle. Is Asgard 2 a reasonable step up from Asgard 1? I currently have HD600s... and might get HE400s soon. Any suggestions?

Jason posted this link a while ago, but it seems like I might've been the only one to actually bookmark it.

I know that you picked the right stack if it was a choice between Magni and Vali. Magni is far to bright for the already bright HD 700. I used it on my HD 700 for about a week before I bought the Lyr to power them instead.

So, I know that the analog output card and the USB card in the Bifrost are replaceable and upgradeable.

My question is, what else, if anything, is upgradeable in the Bifrost without replacing the main board?

Those are the only things that we've been told about (as far as I'm aware).

thank you, yeah I have the Asus Essence One with Muses opamps and it sounds terrific, but I want to see if the Vali /Modi will be a nice addition, as I wanted a little portable system for my corner lazyboy setup and get a small taste of the tube and the HD700, Thanks again.

Sounds like you made a good choice. Head over to the HD 700 thread and throw in your thoughts after you've gotten it all together. Would love to read them.

Is it better to leave an amp on all the time or turn it off and on as needed? I would guess the latter but just making sure. Want these suckers to last as long as possible.

So seems like a I had some interference causing my ringing noise in the Valhalla. Improved it completely going to another room, so have to find the cause next to my pc. I'm thinking it's the power outlets near my computer. Anyways here's a pic for you guys smily_headphones1.gif

It could be the tubes are quite close to the monitor and the tubes could pickup interference from the backlight brightness control. Try different positions and see if it makes a difference. Tube amps can pick up interference from wireless devices as well.

Tried the amp away from the monitor as well unplugging my wifi router and it didn't help.
