Schiit Owners Unite - Page 282

I've never had dedicated gaming sound card so I can't say anything about how accurate the sound positioning in those are, but with HD 598's and Nuforce uDAC 2 you can get vague idea where the footsteps etc are coming from. That is enough for single player games IMO.

I received and installed the Bifrost USB card yesterday. Took about 15 minutes to install, had zero issues with the LED's as I put the circuit board in the main enclosure first, then slid the dark gray insert in last and screwed it all together.

Very very happy with it so far.

My Gungnir is in Memphis, Tennessee. How exotic. :rolleyes: It's having a Fedex package holiday.

Yep, the southern USA is freaking out and is in lockdown mode because of a little snow and ice.  Hope you get it soon!

Here is a beautiful sunny day in southern California! :D

Typical white out up here in the land of eh!  I'll counter the weather with my own Schiit storm.  :)

^^ That gives more operationally to listening and enjoying music than here with a busy sunny day.

So I just bit the bullet and ordered an Asgard 2 for my HD600.. Hopefully it would be an upgrade from my decade old X-CAN V3.

I guess you will like it but let us know your impression.

To be honest I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to tell any difference, but I guess I just want little change after 10 years...

Only changing the Headphones can make a bigger change, IMO.

OMG. The Gungnir has arrived today Friday - delivery was estimated for next Monday. A Fedex triumph! Now trying to tell myself that I don't have time to open it today... I mean, I have to work, right? Right? :confused_face_2:

Get your priorities right friend ! Now go open the bloody box already :biggrin:

Surprise, surprise! I opened the box. Surprise, surprise! I didn't leave the unit on to warm up for a month or so. I listened cold. So far, Coax connection sounds fine, but not so far away from what I am used to hearing. USB - the Gungnir totally obliterates the Audiolab M-DAC. It will be interesting to see how things develop. What a wonderful, involving sound.

Well, actually, the main reason for my experiment is that after 10 years of listening my system has started to sound a bit thin and harsh on the treble.

I don't know what to blame here, I've replaced drivers in my HD600, valves in X-CAN V3, but it's still the same... not like before - silky smooth and enjoyable.

Maybe it's my older ears or brain, I dunno... Will see if some Schiit helps. Maybe some other components in my X-CAN got old.

The source was changed, though. I was using an old MF X-24K DAC for many years (and it was great).. but I don't think my new MF V-DAC II is worse that that.

It has to be much better.
