Yes, both balanced and unbalanced input. Just not both at the same time.

Would you guys rather ODAC -> Mjolnir, or Gungnir -> O2, for a couple months-ish? (Student budget)

post #2060 of 3216

Having heard neither I would definitly go for the amp first :D

BiFrost > Lyr

 

See what I did there ;)  And good news, both pop used all the time.

post #2062 of 3216

I'm 110% sure I'll start rolling tubes with the Lyr.

 

I can afford both Mjo/Gung but not at the same time according to my monthly budget allowance for personal items. :)

If you are dead set on that combo... Gungnir first.  The Mjolnir is pretty bright and fatiguing on non butter smooth and dark sources.

Is it really THAT bright!?

W4S is a dark source, W4S + Mjolnir too bright for me.  PWD2 much more tonally balanced but also smooth as butter so might work with the Mjolnir if you like light bass balance.  HD800 users would probably like the combo.

I dont find the D2 to be bright with the Mjolnir and the LCD-3, but then again i dont have any other sources to compare it against

I don't find Mjolnir > LCD-3 to be overly bright using either the Gungnir or Grace m903 as source. To each his own, of course.

I've been reading some reviews on the Mjolnir and quite a few people mention that it is too bright and one guy even mentioned that it sounds thinner than the Lyr.  Is this true?  I was starting to warm up to the idea going from Lyr+Bifrost to Mjolnir+Gungnir but now I'm not so sure.  The reason for swapping is that I feel the Lyr+Bifrost sounds too thin specially in the mid bass.

Just keep track of the DAC used with the Mjolnir when you see comments about it being to bright and you should be able to deduce that it has more to do with the DAC used than the Mjolnir. The Mjolnir is just amping what it gets, sharp or otherwise.

Some edgy DACs sound better with a little fuzzier amp. Just keep track of what combo's sound good since you are upgrading both and you'll be fine.

Can anyone who's used the MJ extensively confirm that its sound sig is skewed with a mid-range emphasis? Or let's put it this way, is the amp more suitable to playback jazz/vocal/audiophile recordings but not really ideal for classical/hard rock/metal/movie scores?
