Schiit Mjolnir headphone amplifier - Page 165

post #2461 of 3148

Sent a PM to Jason but maybe he is too busy to read my PM.

 

And I am in hurry to get and answer, so I am going to ask here.

 

I am getting a tube amp from fren which weight about 10kg and due to space constraints on my desktop .. can I place it on my stacked Mjolnir  & Gungnir combo?.

On the bottom,  the Gungnir is seating on 3 cones and on top, there are another 3 cones which the Mjolnir seats.

 

Will this 10 kg of weight cause any issue???

 My major concern....

 

thanks in advance for the advice...

The weight won't be an issue. The Schiit products are built well but I would worry more about heat than weight

Please don't put 22lbs of hot tube amp on top of Mjolnir, blocking the vents and possibly causing it to overheat.

thanks for the advise

 

Guess I have to swap place every time i use either one of them.

Hi Jason...

 

Sorry did not mean to be way off but just need to clear on your statement..

"I just replied in the thread. It is NOT advisable to stack 22lbs of a hot tube amp on top of Mjolnir. The chassis is a heatsink, and you may cause it to overheat"

 

So even though if I remove my Mjolnir and place my tube amp ontop of Gungnir with  1 inch height cone... this will also be a problem since both the Amp & DAC are using the same type of Al chasis...!!!

IS this true too !!!!!

 

thanks

You can safely stack a Mjolnir on top of a Gungnir.

Haha.

my apologies if this is nosy, but does anyone know how many mjolnir's and gungnir's are out in the wild, i.e sales? i just want to get a feel for how popular they actually are. Seems like they are discussed a lot these days but its hard to draw the line of where the chatter is just the same people over and over again vs. hoards of budding audiophiles.

I think it's safe to say that there are a Schiitload of those amps and DACs out there, but only Jason knows the exact number. normal_smile%20.gif

Think Jason mentioned something over 1000 for Mjolnir. No word on Gungnir.

Guys my Mjolnir makes my LCD-2's a little bright I think because my ears fatigue the same way they do when I used to own SR-325's. I didn't notice anything worth complaining about when I first started using it, but I was wondering if it's just me feeling especially sensitive today, or that the Mjolnir does impart a touch of brightness?

I am indeed stacking Mjolnir with Gungnir and using optical as a source and I'm using OCC copper interconnects and headphone cable.

Are you sure it isn't Gungnir? I only ask because Gungnir is pretty harsh until broken in.

Using toslink output of a computer? Any reason you are not using async usb? That might be the culprit....

I've completely refrained from making "review" type judgements until I've given the pair 100 hours.

You would think that for $750, both inputs would be of the highest quality. Also I've always been under the impression that optical inputs are generally a lot more clean, and that Schiit's implementation of USB was as close as you could get to that based on the literature of the Bifrost? Also I saved $150. Even at this level of gear I have, money is still tight. I just really appreciated that I could have an "end-game" rig and not have to worry if my amp/source was a factor in headphone A/B-ing.
