What about RCA cables?

Those will be fine. Pickup your RCA's at monoprice while you're at it.

 

Later down the road you can experiment with more cables and decide if you're in the camp of cables matter or not.

Only problem is the reviews for the premium RCA cables they have say they fit too tightly.

WIll normal RCA cables I have laying around be OK?

I've never experienced problems with mono's cables before.

 

And they should be.

You would think after being a member for 8 years I'd know these things.

Haha. Maybe, but not necessarily. We all learn new things everyday. bigsmile_face.gif

I am using the 1.5 ft length of this and I have no complaints.

I know... I'm sitting here thinking I should start saving for the 'statement' gear from Schiit as well, and contemplating what other cans I want to get... I wonder if my boss will accept "Because music" as a valid reason for me requesting a raise to pay for all of it?

 

Still need to snag some more tubes for the Lyr on top of everything else, too! And I'm eying some of the Norse cables for the LCDs, purely for aesthetic reasons, and wanting my audio chain to be even more norse mythological ;)

I posted this in the Asgard thread, but this one seems to get a little more traffic:

Alright, folks, looking for a little education here.

 

I'm still relatively new to the whole headphone game (been going for a coulpe of years now). While I've learned a lot about what I like over that time, I'm still learning a lot about good and bad synergy between certain headphones and amps.

 

So, my quesion:

 

I absolutely LOVE my Asgard+DT880 combo...couldn't be happier with it. However, the Asgard+DT1350 pairing seems to be somewhat on the terrible side. It's not an issue since I never use my 1350s at home, but I'm curious. Is there something in the specs that can be pointed to that would explain why they aren't a good fit or is it all in my head? From my experience the mids seem to be slightly sucked out and the headphones lack energy and authority. They sound passable, but only at loud volumes. It could simply be the fact that my home set-up consists of the HRT MSII, Asgard, and 1350s, which are all three considered to be ever so slightly on the warm side of the spectrum. Is that all it is?

 

On the other hand, I adore my 1350s when paired at work with my Audinst HUD-mx1.

 

Anyway, just trying to learn something new. Thanks for any input you can give me!

You should only consider the statement gear if you have speakers. One of the most popular rigs these days is the HiFiMan HE-6 paired

with a speaker amp. Better yet tell him you are too poor to feed your starving habit and if the man has a heart, he'll have no problem giving a raise. biggrin.gif

 

I honestly hadn't even put the Norse Audio and Schiit thing together..Norse wise. Haha.

Do anyone know a direct comparison between the Bifrost, the Peachtree Dac-iT and the Musical Fidelity V-DAC mkii(and other dacs in the same pricerange)?

just go to bestbuy and buy it now....When you receive your cable...then return it to bestbuy.

As much as I hate best buy I'd rather not do that to them.

 

I have the amp hooked up to my laptop for now and it sounds pretty awesome.
