Schiit Mjolnir headphone amplifier - Page 78

post #1156 of 3241
Speaking of, if you are done I need to get that back soon. Will have my Mjolnir shipping with the Gungnir I ordered shipping out next week. Only have 15 days to decide on the Mjolnir.

Curious to find if it has changed. I don't see how its possible having run it for around 500 hours, but we'll see.

It got shipped back yesterday fully insured via USPS. Let us know if we broke it.

I don't think that I am at the 200 hours of use with the BHA-1 yet.

And this is coming from someone who doesn't listen to solid-state amps (I found them mostly flat and boring sounding). So the Mjolnir's gotta be doing something right (this coming from my completely unreliable subject-to-whatever-whims-or-moods subjective side).

 

 

I'm curious as to why you would consider selling your BA and replacing it with the Mjolnir when you consider the BA the superior amp?

post #1165 of 3241

I mainly listen to my electrostatics now, so I rarely listen to my dynamic headphones. And when I do, it's usually when I'm travelling or helping others tweak and/or measure their headphones.

 

Also, I need a preamp in the living room. BA in the living does not make a good preamp with young kids around the house.

 

But you are right, every time I hear the BA, I do not want to sell it. That is why I still have it. I know I'll eventually let it go.

post #1166 of 3241

Ah, that's definitely understandable.  I find I get too attached to gear that has truly made my happy to ever sell it, even if I can't find a near-term use for it.  But then again the BA is expensive........ no point tying up all that value if it isn't being used.

 

I wish I knew what the BA sounded like, it would make a great point of reference.

I know it hasn't been too long, but bump on this? I'm considering the auditor/phonitor or this amp at some point in the future. Also the GS-1/ GS-X?

post #1168 of 3241

okay so we know the Mjolnir is still a far cry from the Balancing Act but the real question should be how does it fare against the BA's little brother: the Zana Deux?

Is there any other feedback on the Mjolnir? Or is everyone waiting to test it with their Gungnir before posting again?

I am very interested in hearing more reviews on the Mjolnir + LCD2 so please share.

Gungnirs ship Friday, so there should be more feedback by next week.
