My LCD 2's also with a red silk balanced cable from Q will be plugged in soon....

 

It sure does wake up the 650's though--Really really sweet!!!

Are going from a single-ended source (rca) into the Mjolnir?

 

I don't really want to read how good the HD650 sounds through this amp. I regret moving the HD650 on and have grappled with the temptation to own it again. The real test for the Mjolnir (in terms of how it's voiced) will be the HD800 imo. I hope someone can weigh in with impressions to make the wait for mine more bearable.

I am not real good at explaining what I hear-but suffice it to say I think it overall sounds pretty impressive--great Bass-sweet almost tube like mids and pretty clear clean highs--seems to have expanded the soundstage on my 650's also...very nice clarity with absolutely no muddiness..

 

And POWER to spare!!!

 

Best way I can describe it...

YOU are going to be the guinea pig for the rest of us lol. I'm waiting for your HD800 impressions.

How hot does it get? 

post #291 of 3273

Not that hot at all--Soon to try my LCD 2's--

 

Yes a single ended source & not that great of a source right now--

 

I also have the Schiit Asgaard & Lyr & the new Balanced Bryston BHA 1 --

 

This one's pretty nice Listening to Jazz At The Pawnshop--

Very interested to hear what you think of the new amp compared to the Bryston.

So in your opinion, which performs better, the Bryston BHA 1 or the Mjolnir?

post #296 of 3273
LOL leave him alone. At least give him a week to give each amp a go.

Give it some time.  The heatsink is the bottom plate so it'll take some time for the heat to make it around to the top.  At 200mA bias it should be nice and toasty once stable.

He better be listening for at least 1 week straight. 

post #299 of 3273

Do need some listening time before anything conclusive and some burn in---

 

Bryston is pretty nice also-But they are different--

 

Also need to spend some time with my LCD 2's........

Jack, I've read that the Bryston can seem treble tilted. How does the Mjolnir compare in this region?
