Hehe...such are the pitfalls of Head-fi. Wonder how the V2 stacks up against the BH and Little Dot OTL amps..

The initial sharpness in the sound has died down a bit with use, thankfully. There's a bit of buzz in the volume as I turn it up, but at maximum it disappears. I'm not sure if this is because I'm using it at 100V. It doesn't have quite the effortless of the Studio Six (obviously) but it is still impressive how well I could make out the sound from differences sources such as the Geek Out vs. the Hugo (though the Hugo doesn't need an external amp).

One can always get an amp from Dr. Emmett Brown with a 1.21 Gigawatt Flux Capacitor. I don't think exotic parts like that can be found in an Asgard 2. Perhaps one day Schiit will make a portable.

So yes, I just double checked now, output on my source was set low (75%) - this might have something to do with it... :-p

 

Set it to 100% and now a much more "normal" volume setting, 11-2 (sometimes 3 depending on what I am listening to) and yes this is in high gain ;)

Hehhehe, 1.21 Gigawatts.... this honestly made me laugh... can picture it now, an amp that transports you back in time to the time the music you are listening to was recorded...

Can you elaborate on the "overkill" part? I thought this was head-fi where excess=success.

 

Cheers

Yep, you'll need a 100-115 converter, I'm afraid. I'm hoping to get 100V transformers rolled into the line sometime later this year.

anyone replace a Valhalla with a Valhalla 2? Want to know how much of an improvement there is.

It doesn't do poorly at all under-volted, though I know that I shouldn't be running it like that.

It may well pull more current running under voltage. Could get a little warmer than intended. The only issue though I could see is shortened component life.

I have owned the magni for 3 months now and i love it but i dont have the dac, instead due to insufficient funds, i just have a rca to 3.5 millimeter jack going into my pc. A wonderful pair of brown momentums are paired with the amp. Im looking for a pair of focal spirit pros in the future though

Your first post? Welcome. Hope you can consider the matching Modi DAC after a while
post #5819 of 12183

Just curious, what kind of RCA interconnects are you guys using to connect your dac to your amp? 

 

Cheap generic ones or expensive cables?

Im using just generic cables for mine
