Schiit Mjolnir headphone amplifier - Page 130

post #1936 of 3242

lookie what showed up this morning :D

 

700

 

One thing i did find funny though is that Schiit made a bit of a copy paste error in the manual. in the FAQ under "What if my cables are attached to my headphones?" it references the Lyr rather than the mjolnir.

I in the process upgrading to Gungnir & Mjolnir combo.

   

And I m DIY-ing the balance interconnect.

Can someone pls tell me, with this combo, what will be the recommended shortest length?

 

Appreciated...

 

Happy listening.....

0.5m gives a nice fit without excess cable spilling over.

Paradoxper,

 

Sorry but 0.5M is kind of long isnt it...

The problem that I having is, the unit will be kind of close to the wall on the desktop table.

I wouldnt want to flex the cable left or right, so I will want to keep it on the shortest length,... I mean just nice not to kink the cable.. so i really want it short.... really really short.. 

 

Schiit, is selling the PYST RCA cable at 0.2M length, (not stated on the web, but read someone mentioned it) so I just wondering...

this is like an excess of 0.3M..

 

what you think???

Yea, you can go with 0.2, which is even shorter. This is the bare limit of having gear connected.

Wow there was a lot of orgasmic joy about this amp in the early posts.  I ploughed through the first 40 pages but never really did find a good solid review. A pointer would be helpful.

 

The impression I have is that this is a pretty transparent item but GIGO applies as it does so much with the Sennheiser HD800.

 

So, I'm tempted to move away from my beloved Nuforce DAC9 to this:

 

Digital out from a Sooloos system -> Metrum Acoustics NOS Mini Octave DAC -> Schiit Mjolnir headphone amp -> Sennheiser HD800 headphones

 

However I wonder at the sense of feeding unbalanced in to the Mjolnir from the Metrum and then using balanced out (which I have) to the Sennheiser HD800.

 

Comments anyone?

 

TIA

 

John

One thing im really liking about this thing so far is that it might get warm, but it certainly doesnt get anywhere close to what i would call hot. Though i may be biased on that one, coming from the First Watt F1...that thing gets HOT!

So after doing some comparisoning just now. Ive determined the Mjolnir works great for the LCD-3s. as good if not a bit better than the F1, not to mention being waaaaaaaayyyyy cooler.

 

with the HE-6s though, i felt the mjolnir felt pretty constrained in comparison to the F1. Like it was passable sure, but its not something i would want to live with long term, not after hearing it on the F1. Soundstage gets bunched up, and things just sound "harsher" across the whole spectrum. the deepest bass also isnt as present nor as defined.

 

just the observations of one owner :D im very pleased with the Mjolnir with the LCD-3s though

post #1949 of 3242

Gotcha..

If you pair the Mjolnir with the Gungnir DAC, the soundstage opens up quite a bit. On my HE500's, the sound is almost breathtaking.
