That's what I have too and loving it! Can't wait to try it with my new HD650!

I finally broke down and ordered some Schiit.  My Magni/Modi stack will be here Thursday.  So far I've only used the NuForce Icon-Ido and a Dragonfly.  Hopefully I perceive a positive change.  I listen 10 times more at work, so I plan to keep the stack at my office to pair with my P7's.  But I'm going to have to try them with my HD650's as well.  The plan at the office is to go from my iPhone/iPad through a CCK into the Modi.  I've read I may have to use a powered USB hub in between.  I picked up my CCK today at lunch.  When plugging my Dragonfly in I get the "too much power" message from my iPad Mini Retina and my iPhone 5s.  Guess I should dig up a USB hub.

 

Can anyone tell me why I should pay $20+ for the Schiit 6" RCA's versus just using a decent pair that I already have?

They're nice and short? If you've already got some decent short cables then just use those.

I agree with the others.  No sound difference, just makes your stack nice and neat.

Isn't there an issue using the PYST cables with Magni and Modi, anyway? I thought that they (Modi and/or Magni) were too light, and the cables would lift the upper unit off the lower if you stacked them.

At least I though I saw a picture of that here somewhere...

While I don't have the Pyst, a rubber band or strap fixes that problem nicely.

My cables are a bit long, so I have to use the wall. :D

I'm in the process of swapping out cables. Just doing it for the length. I like my gear neat.

Yeah, unfortunately I was buying this pair when I didn't have any stacks in mind.

I found a guy on ebay that has made and is making more cables for me. Good cable at good price for custom length.

I'm just going to Blue Jeans Cable for all my needs. They do full custom too (length, etc).

That was me, and it's no longer an issue. Schiit appears to have switched to a thinner/more flexible cable so it no longer happens.

Can anyone here rate the following  3 Schiit amps with the HD800's.Lyr, Valhalla, Asgard 2. I need to get another amp for my bedroom and I'd like to do it as cheaply as possible. I made the mistake of comparing my LD Mk3 with my Lyr and while the LD was listenable, it was a huge revelation when I moved over to the Lyr. I am hope the Valhalla or Asgard may be the equal of the Lyr or even better maybe, have to admit I don't have huge amounts of enthusiasm for that outcome but you never know.

no experience with the hd800's, but i've had the asgard2 and the lyr, i recently heard the valhalla, of the 3, i'd pick the lyr, i think the lyr is one of the best all around amps there is at its price point.

i was really surprised at how much i liked the valhalla , i would think the hd800's would pair better with tubes, but that's just a guess .
