Does the Modi support 88.2khz? I'm thinking about using it as an external dac for my hi-fi rig (as opposed to soiundcard optical-to-receiver dac)

Yes as per Schiit Modi spec page.

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.

I wish the Mjolnir had a single ended headphone output :-( .

Me too, I had assumed it did until I looked on their webpage and looked real close. I looked for the longest time thinking somehow I had just missed it, then I figured out I hadn't missed it, it just wasn't there.

I sent my income tax return in by mail and I'm pissed now because last year I e-filed it and got it in 3 weeks, it's been 3 week!!! Where is my tax return confused_face.gif
That's rough! I got mine back in a week.

i just bought a mjo off the sale thread, and mine will have a single ended headphone out, called the lyr lol

i'll run balanced out of my dac to the mjo, and the single ended out to the lyr

if your dac doesn't have balanced outputs, you can use a splitter out the dac, that gives two single ended out puts

one to the mjo, another to any single ended amp of your choice !

Not sure which headphones you are using but using the mojo as a preamp for the lyr feels like you would have WAY too much gain, but Icould be wrong.

Hey guys!

 

I'm looking into getting an external amp/dac and Schiit looks very nice. 

Now I currently have a Xonar Essence STX and I have read that if I would get the Schiit Magni/Modi combo that it wouldn't really be an upgrade.

 

So what should I get instead? The Asgard 2 but which dac would I get?

 

Headphones I have now: Ultrasone Pro 550, Sennheiser Momentum, V-Moda M100

 

Coming soon: Philips Fidelio X1, AKG K701, Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro (250 Ohm)

 

Maybe later I'll get an Sennheiser HD600/650

I would just do an Asgard 2 and a Modi for now.
