Schiit Mjolnir headphone amplifier - Page 107

Amp on top.

I don't think either will blow if stacked wrong but the amp certainly puts out more heat.  But also its heat is from the bottom so... ya.

'But also its heat is from the bottom so'

 

 


duly noted! :)

Heat vs. varm sound:

Loevhagen, you saying the Violectric stack is warm-sounding compared to the Schiit?

 

TIA

post #1596 of 3311

I don't know about the dacs but the V200 is definitely warmer than the Mjolnir.

post #1597 of 3311

I would simplify like this:

 

- Mjolnir less varmer than V200

- V800 less varmer than Gungnir

post #1598 of 3311

So you'd classify the Gungnir as warm, or the V800 as sterile?

None of the above. It's more complex. 

 

E.g. I believe many hear what they read in reviews. The "truth" (in the ears of the beholder) is the right answer.

Is it just me residing in Norway (230V) that gets the impression that the Mjolnir gets "crazy" warm? Man, it sure gets warm after some hours - and the Gungnir placed underneath is likewise. 

 

My thoughts leap to Solude that stated he wanted the Mjolnir to get hotter.

What can I say I'm from a time where class A meant you could close the heating vents in the winter and summer was spent in your boxers :D

Jokes aside; the pile of Schiit gets very, very hot. I do not want it to get any warmer. And that comming from a hillbilly living in Norway...

Which unit, if any, outputs more heat than the other? DAC v.s. amp as far as what should be placed on top of the stack, vs what should be on the bottom assuming one does put out more heat than the other. I would guess the amp puts out more heat and thus should be on the top of the stack. maybe this just doesn't matter at all

thoughts? thxs

The officially stated advice for Bifrost is amp on top. Should be the same for Gungnir/Mjolnir.

I was wondering the same thing.  I went with amp on top because the amp should definitely put out a lot more heat than the DAC.

I have followed that piece of advice. The stack is still hot as damn:
