@ Preproman

Careful with those transitive properties. They don't always work in audio.

Be more specific?

post #2538 of 3263
Because the FW was better than the DS, and the FW came up short in another review, the DS is certain to not be good. That's a transitive property.

Coming from more than a few ears I trust and the price tag on said product.  It works for me..

Let me put it this way.  The OPA541AP spec sheet is open for all to read.  If you can get through it and still want a DS... have at it.

I find it just a little on the brighter side with my Olive 6HD server. But very neutral with the K01.


Agree. Not bright at all with balanced output of my MPS-3. Have you tested a better headphone cable ?

Will I have to deal with those clicks that my Gungnir makes or am I doing something wrong? I'm running TOSLINK from the motherboard of my computer.

It will click any time it locks a signal.

Bump for this rather old question...

What do people think of the HD800 paired with the gungnit and mjolnir. Listen to nearly every kind of music, except metal. Was interested ingetting a balanced hd800 for the large soundstage. What does the mjolnir do for the hd800 in terms of highs mids bass. Want mjolnir to have decent bass as i also watch lots of movie on my headphones.

The pairing is pretty good.

 

Even with Mjolnir being such a forward sounding amp I've yet to find the HD800 fatiguing.

 

Gungnir can come across as being a little harsh per glare. The combo presents some weighty bass besting

the LCD's, IMO.

 

I'm comparing Gungnir to some other DACs at the moment and at $700 it's a very good DAC.

 

With that said, it's clear Gungnir is the bottleneck in the chain
