It's the time of your replies smily_headphones1.gif Aren't the rest of your countrymen fast asleep at the times of your posts? Don't you need any sleep?
Cheers!!

Looking forward to it!

 

Haha. Uh, sometimes I'm not sleeping this time. But there's plenty of others that aren't either. biggrin.gif So don't single me out! tongue.gif

I use the LCD2.2's, Beyer t1's and HE6's.

 

I always loved the Woo, its a fine amp but the fact that it can't really do the HE6's justice ( although I did not find it as bad as some people do) and is not as good as my Audio-gd Master-6 led me to sell it to help finance another more powerful amp. I am very interested in the Schiit statement amps when they see the light so impressions of the Mjolnir are welcome so I can get a better idea of what to expect.

Jason. If you see this message, I would be greatly appreciative if you can jump in and give me your blessings.
Thanks everyone.

Functionally, it doesn't matter if you run it on its side, but I can't recommend it--it's WAYYY too tall and unstable that way.

Nods, I thought of rigging something up but by the time you have something stable... you haven't saved much desk space ;)  For a bedside though, you could put it behind the nightstand.  It won't be a 10/10 after banging up against the wall and stand but it won't fall over either.

what's the Schiit statement amp suppose to be?  Hybrid, Solid State, Tube?  I read somewhere before but can't remember.  Two enclosures or one?  Gain switch?  On board heat sinks or the case will be the heat sink.  How many watts through it's balanced outputs?

Might have been a dream but here we go...

Hybrid, Solid State, Tube?
Hybrid
Two enclosures or one?
One, full size.
Gain switch?
No.
On board heat sinks or the case will be the heat sink.
Case
How many watts through it's balanced outputs?
10W, pulling this one out my arse :D

I thought Schiit were releasing 2 statement amps, one SS and the other a hybrid.

 

Has that changed?

10 watts?  Good Greef..

Hi Jason. Thanks for taking the time to reply! smily_headphones1.gif I know exactly what your concerns are but no worries! I will implement the plan only if I can satisfactorily work out a good solution on how to temporarily adhere the amp to a vertical surface where it's feet will be facing. Architecturally, i have a good plan…. I think smily_headphones1.gif

Cheers!!

Hey Solude! How are things!?
Having the amp behind the night stand will render the volume knob a little too far from my reach. I am planning to shift the night stand about 3-4 inches away from the bed so as to create a snug gap for the Mjolnir. My bedframe is rather minimalist, but for this purpose, in a good way. The horizontal beam is 350mm off the floor, which means that the top of the sideways Mjolnir will be clamped down between the bed and the night stand. The vents will be below the bed, and thus not blocked. Anyway. Right now, its still just a plan and unlike the arrival of the Mjolnir, that may change smily_headphones1.gif

Which no longer makes it a headphone amp. But speakers....

That would be against Schiit policy.  Be hard to make a speaker amp in the price range they've talked about that would also be a better headphone amp than the Mjolnir.
