I've purchased an Asgard 2 to upgrade from Vali and Magni. It should be delivered tomorrow.

 

It'll be great to have a front-mounted volume control for my Audioengine A2's; I'm tired of using software volume control for them.

Oh you're really gonna love it.  I never plan on selling mine!

Thanks, I'm really looking forward to getting it. And hopefully stopping any more purchases for a while. :redface:

Unfortunately true!

What's the point of having the magni if you already have a lyr?

That's a Vali. It's easier to take with me than the Lyr.

And, because I can.

Oh how I wish they would make a Mjolnir in matte black, it would match my DAC and make my uneven stack look a little more congruent, but at least it sounds good!

 

Really looking forward to hearing comparisons between the Rag and the MJ balanced out, that's definitely what intrigues me the most, and some comparisons between the Cavalli liquid cobalt and gold.

Whatever, it's your money.

It brings me pleasure when someone gets offended that I would have Schiit that I don't need or use. I also have an Asgard2 that's collecting dust. It does look good sitting on my desk though!

I'm very happy with the SYS purchase, not having to have one of the amps on to have preamp functionality is fantastic.

After trying the Vali/Modi combo out I decided to return them and order the Valhalla/Uberfrost which arrived yesterday! Very nice indeed the fit and finish on these is great, the sound quality is improved for sure with my HD650s. Thank you all for yours posts i've learned a lot so far.

Going to be tinkering with my settings, i'm using an optical connection from my PC as I didn't purchase the USB nor did I want to fuss with drivers. The clicking of the DAC isn't a huge issue as I only have these on when i'm actually using headphones anyways. I did have an issue after setting my output to 24/96 with some odd behavior while gaming. I'll have to head over to the Bifrost thread to figure out the best settings to use.

Also this is my first tube amp so it's interesting hearing the difference in sound vs. solid state. Not sure if tube rolling is in my future or not...

I have a small stack along with my big one for more portability around my house.

I'm not offended.

All I have so far is a little Magni, but that black Valhalla is mighty tempting...
