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.

May i ask what you didnt like with the Little Dot Mk iii? It sounds glorious with the 800 with some aftermarket tubes. That said, both Valhalla and Lyr should fare well too.

Well then I guess nevermind, then L3000.gif

Thanks for all the responses.  I dug through my box of pre-HDMI cables in the basement and found some top of the line overpriced 1 foot long Monster Cables. :)  Hope they didn't stop working when they reached 15 years old. lol

Better than another Shiit joke. :D

Ok, so I played the Magni/Modi for about 10 seconds (didn't have the right 1/4-1/8 adapter for my headphones so I had to run back to Best Buy) and I think I just cut a hole in my wallet.  The wife keeps asking what I want for Father's Day.  How do I tell her I want a Bifrost/Asgard2 or Valhalla?

How'd I tell my wife I now want a Gungnir after buying Bifrost/Asgard 2?

I have tried converting dollars to salon units. That is, "this will only cost 2 cut/style/color appointments". I think it's a brilliant idea, in theory. In practice, not so much.

And I tell mine: "Just look at these rods and reels some men are buying! My "little boxes" are a great bargain compared to that".

lol.  Logic doesn't always apply.

 

I think this dirt cheap Dynex 1/8-1/4 adapter I bought is creating noise.  I have never heard anything using my previous setups, but now I'm hearing a ticking/buzzing sound intermittently.  I pulled the signal cables from the back of the Magni and that had no effect.  I'm going to try to remember the 1/8-1/4 adapter that came with my B&W P7's tomorrow and see if that is any different.  I have fiddled with the connection a bit and it seems to be better now.

Leave brochures around the house for expensive power toys/autos.  After the dust settles from that, head gear will seem like a bargain.  :biggrin:

I'm currently using Gungnir > Mjolnir > LCD 2, and for speakers I run the Mjolnir to my Audio-GD Master 3 > Magnepan 1.6 (modded).

 

The only thing I wish was different (other than the Gungnir I plan on upgrading to Yggdrasil when that comes out) is for a fully balanced tube preamp/ headphone amp, since I would love to tube roll with my maggies (and still get the 500W of power from my audio-gd). The only ones I can ever seem to find are $$$, and all use output transformers to make it balanced, which I don't like, not just because of the money cost, but because it can cause loss of some detail if you use anything but great output transformers (which is probably where a good chunk of the cost comes from).

 

Jason seems like he has just the right kind of crazy mind to design a fully balanced tube preamp/ headphone amp and make it great, so I hope someday it will exist. I would be all over that :D
