Please don't misunderstand me. I tried ordering a Mjolnir recently but it seems there is a delay in production and it wouldn't be available indefinitely. I'm also looking for an MJ myself.

Hmmm the site says In Stock, I guess I'll see if I hear something back from them saying otherwise.  They used to be good about updating the stock status on the website.

Magni was quite good when I had it for a while with LCD-2s; I'd expect it to work just as well with the XC.

To be frank with you, when I said it can drive planar headphones, it meant that it can provide enough volume that you need from it. But in terms of sound quality, I prefer my DT 990 Pro with the Magni instead of the HE-6 as the bass of the HE-6 was very thin when used with the Magni. I would suggest you to save up and buy a better amp for the XC as you might possibly hunting for another amp shortly after using it with the XC.

I'd suggest you write in to ask on the shipping status - that's what I did and then only did I get a reply stating production may be delayed up to a month or more. Still, they replied promptly and cancelled my payment since I didn't want to wait that long. I feel Schiit should update the status in their website.

That's a good point there. Was thinking of the MJ but since production has been delayed, I'm kinda lost as to another affordable alternative. The Ragnarok looks good but a bit pricey for me now.

You can wait for the MJ to be in stock. Ragnarok is a powerful amp which also can drive speakers. But I guess if you only want to use headphones, might as well get the MJ instead and spend the remaining money on a quality DAC.

How will more power than one would even need during a transient or peak be useful? Perhaps there's some expectation bias in the calculus?

What sonic differences do you hear (or not) between little Vali and bigger Valhalla (v. 1 or 2)?
Glad to hear if there are certain differences or not. Prefer to hear from direct experience.

Proud to own some Schiit again!


I would be quite curious to hear your thoughts on this combo when you spend some solid time with it! :D

I just got my tracking number for my order, so it looks like they had one for me.  You might want to contact them again?

 

I am so excited!  Get the X's tomorrow and the Schiit sometime early next week. :D

Thanks for the heads-up...did you get the tracking for the Gungnir only or for the MJ as well?

I would guess it will come as one shipment.  Don't see any reason they'd ship them separately.  There's nothing stating that they were split up.  In the past they contacted me when they couldn't ship my previous order together.  I changed my order to a Lyr back then and they put them in the same box.

Great! I just shot the Customer Service a mail to confirm before I place my order : )

More power will be able to give you more headroom. It can also help in the bass department.
