Yeah, sorry I couldn't be more specific about my impressions, the meet was some time ago (almost a year, actually). I was rocking the Mjolnir/ Audez'e combo since, and it is by far my favourite combo with Audez'e in that general price range. The aggressiveness of Mjolnir really complements those cans :)

anyone can compare between the two amps? thanks

Keep in mind that this is a Schiit thread. You might get more objective opinions in the LCD2 threads. :)

the light might be okay to me, i am more concerned about the heat and aging of components inside modi if letting it on 24/7

Initial differences were that the Bifrost wasn't as bright as the Modi, and the Bifrost clicks as its optical. Not to say that the Modi is bright, but comparatively it is.

Bass sounds a tad nicer as well, still have a while to go before I can give full comparsons

Cool, thanks a lot. I would bet bifrost should provide more details, at least its price suggest so.

 

But no idea what other improvements are. Glad to hear bass is nicer.

Got the USB UBER Bifrost today.

 

it sucks living outside the USA. paid about 250$ for custom fees..

Going to buy a new amp soon, thinking about the Schiit LYR or maybe the Violectric V200 that I can get at the same price second hand.

I just picked up the TEAC HA-501, which the Bifrost Uber is feeding.  So far, it's a wonderful combo.  Worth investigating as well.

Are you in Canada? If so, you should consider looking to headphonebar.com

 

They are an authorized Schiit distributor. They're a tad slow in getting stock, but hey... worth it to avoid the customs.

I always order direct from Schiit. I've found that if I choose a Fedex shipping option, I get hit hard with customs fees. If I choose USPS, I never get charged any customs fees.

The only time I was lucky not to be taxed was when I ordered the Asgard 2 and the Modi/Vali combo. My recent Lyr purchase got taxed. So did my Valhalla a couple of years ago. Maybe if Schiit was willing to help under-declare the prices, it might not be so painful for us. Just a thought.

But they won't, they do everything the proper and legal way ;)

Thinking to buy TEAC HA-501 . I have HE-500 so what do you think about using TEAC with HE-500 ?  Is that powerfull enough to feed HE-500 ?

Yes, should have more than enough.  It puts out more than 2 W into 32 ohms.
