For example, I am streaming FLAC files to my car, using it for 2 channel and headphones systems, I can visit libraries around the globe, adjustable gain on the fly, and much much more.

Thanks for the tip Brunk.

 

Will check it for sure. I'm using FLAC too, Just upgraded the headunit in my car to a JVC double DIN that supports FLAC on a 32GB SD card. Wish the capacity was larger but it's nice to see a manufacturer supporting FLAC again!

Check your paypal...sent you a holiday $20 spot ;)

The HD800's are definitely the loser. No contest!

 

The sound of the LCD2's is just so real. The bass is accurate, vocals are spot on in every genre. Very, very very, happy! Had them on for less than 10 minutes and I knew these were going to stay. I can only imagine what the LCD-3's sound like

 

I am going to order the microsuede headband, the HD800's are way more comfortable in that regard. Hopefully the headband will be the solution.

 

I have to say, this combination exceeds my Woo Audio WA22/HD800 balanced setup in so many ways. It's nice to sell $3100 in gear and replace it with $1900 worth of gear and feel like I came out ahead. That's a rare feat to say the least. 

 

 

With my Master-6 the the LCD2.2's are very good and musical (I hate that term) but the HD800's are still far better even with rock and metal.

My new mjolnir + gungnir are ordered.

Any tipps for burning in time? I read a lot about turning on for 24/7 (electricity? 65w?)

You can turbo charge the burn in process if you put them in your oven at 200f for about 12 hours(lol don't do this)

I burned my Mjolnir for 100 hours using "Isotek" burn in CD the results awesome!

I just listened to mine for a few hundred hours. Now with the Silver Widow and LCD3s it really is just a beautiful sounding setup. I am sure there are amp/dac combos that do sound better but as far as value and SQ for the money I just think this system is extremely hard to beat. Amazes me more every time I listen to it...

Actually the LCD lineup with the Mjolnir is the best imo.

Hi guys,

 

I have the LCD2 r2 and pretty much decided to go with Mjolnir for amp.  However currently I'm on Modi/Vali combo, my question is if Mjolnir NEED Gungnir or I can get away with feeding Mjolnir with Modi for now until I saved up for Gungnir.

 

Thanks

Congrats on the mjolnir, its great,
The modi will work just fine, I use a wadia with my mjolnir, but I think you'll really want to upgrade the modi asap, Even the bifrost is a significant upgrade from the modi

I agree, the modi will do fine. You'll still be 'wowed' because of the wonderful pairing of lcd2 and mjolnir. Later down the road, you can opt for an even better dac than the gungnir. Good luck, seems like you've got a foundation for a killer rig.
