Schiit Mjolnir headphone amplifier - Page 79

post #1171 of 3310

It's a bit hard to go through all the pages of waiting and then the actual impressions so I was wondering how people felt the SE input of the amp is compared to the balanced. I've been thinking about getting the amp but I don't have balanced out on my dac and don't really want to get a balanced dac and have two separate systems.

Indistinguishable with the W4S DAC-2, as expected with a differential input.

I am order #2406. I asked Jason directly. I was expecting shipping earlier this week, which didn't happen.

So I wanted to change my shipping to overnight and Jason said shipping begins Friday.

That's good to hear. I do have a pretty good dac and would be a shame to have to invest in another dac although that may happen eventually but that's another story. I guess buying one to compare the V200 and the Mjolnir amp would be pretty fun.

Sounds like a hobby to me!

Great. Thanks for the info.

I may have mine before the end of next week if all goes well.

If you search this thread for "single ended" you get a bunch of differing opinions.

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

 

Mjolnir + LCD2 is an excellent combo and must be heard.

Got mine a few days ago..I do not have the Gungnir..currently using the bifrost.,& Lcd-2's,plus my new pair of He-6's.

 

All I can say,it is the most dynamic,strong,clear,detailed sound,,I could have imagined,or hoped for.

Simply amazing..

One of the strongest points is the bass,much deeper,that what I had from the Lyr.

Most of my music files are ..acoustic guitar,some rock,and mild jazz..all come through perfectly.

 

With the mjolnir,you hear details in the music,you never heard before,for example...people in the audience,coughing,musician,sliding their fingers across the fret board,musicians,inhaling & exhaling,while they perform...that kind of detail & clarity.

It is like siting in the front.. row of a concert hall.

It is  definetly a,night & day experience.

 

I really loved my,Lyr/bifrost combo,& I was undecided about upgrading,but,man I'm glad I did.

I will miss the lyr,& all 35 pairs of tubes ,but sold most of them & glad I did

 

I e-mailed Jason at Schiit,to tell him my impressions ,& to thank him,and ask him a few questions about the Gungnir;

He wrote back,:

  "Gungnir is a gigantic step up from Bifrost--I think you'd be very surprised how big a step up."

So,guess what my next purchase will be?

 

Anyone ,on the fence about the mjolnir...don't hesitate..just get it...it is one hell of an amp..

This amp ,will take you into audio heaven.the best upgrade ,I've made so far..

 

Mike

Have tried the Mjolnir with LCD-2, LCD-3, HE-6 and HE-500. What I hear is beyond what I expected - except for one thing. And, that one thing was a thing that the pirate kitten said back in this thread; the depth in the music is not that good with Mjolnir. The width and the rest are however stamped "Approved".

I'll find out soon enough. If all else fails I'll just get a balanced dac and keep my current one. A matching gungnir dac with this amp would look pretty nice :) I'm probably selling the amp I have eventually so going to order this one and compare before that happens. Schiit does have that 15 day return policy so no worries here.

If you are happy with SE - why crave for XLR.

It's not many good SS amps the LCD-2.2 is not good or to some excellent with.  The LCD-2.2 is just one of those kind of headphones.  Or maybe it's the only headphone that can carry that title.

Loevhagen, im always a fan of your photography skills. Those pictures look excellent. If you don't mind, could you upload a higher resolution image of that final picture in your first post (the Mjolnir and LCD3)? It looks beautiful.
