Same type, different source, no pun intended.

By popluar request, I'm going to start a thread for the Audeze Ecstasy-2.

I guess it's gonna be an exxxxtatic match with the brand new upcoming Mjødnir (Mjød is Viking Beer)

I do not recommend mixing Audeze Ecstasy-2 with Viking Beer! biggrin.gif

Can you someone please explain the difference in the power ratings between the Lyr and Mjolnir.  The Lyr is rated as 6 watts into 32ohms while the Mjolnir is rated as 8 watts RMS into 32ohms.  Is the 6 watts for the Lyr combined for the two channel yielding 3 watts per channel whereas the 8 watts for Mjolnir is per channel since it's balanced?  Also, does the Mjolnir's RMS rating negate a direct comparison to the Lyr since it seems like the Lyr's 6 watts is the max not RMS?  I'm sorry if this sounds stupid but I'm just trying to wrap my head around these amp specs.

My understanding is 6W/channel for the Lyr and 8W/channel for the Mjolnir--that's clean power for both. It seems like if I'm listening to the Mjolnir with the volume knob at 10:00, the Lyr needs to be at about 11:00 to reach the same volume.

Both are RMS, both per channel.  Difference is Mjolnir stays class A much longer which is expected because of the larger surface area to sink heat.

That's a function of gain and the taper of the volume pot, not output power wink.gif

Hey Soup, how does the D2's hp out compare to the Mjolnir?

It drives my JH-13s beautifully. But I don't have balanced cables to compare to the mjolnir with them. The only full sized cans I have are the LCD-3 and the he-6, and with them it's not even a comparison. The d2 can't really drive either of the orthos particularly well

Which is an odd design decision given it uses a 50W speaker opamp(GainClone), huh.

You can't be talking about the D2. It uses two OPA1611s in differential mode, into two LME49610s as output buffers. In the standard configuration the 1611s are a 0 gain amplification step to get the single ended signal to send to the buffers. In high gain mode they provide a very small amount of gain to get from 4 volts to 5.3 volts I think it is.
