Any LCD-2 owners using the Mjolnir?

Thinking about both as my next move away from my current setup

You buying? :p  Unless my math is off it'll cost me ~$180 to try it if it doesn't best the Peak.

I will be shortly.  I ordered my Mjolnir yesterday morning and received a FedEx ship notice yesterday evening.  It should be delivered by Thursday.  I have LCD-2, HD 800 and HD 650 with balanced cables just waiting for a balanced amp. (I ordered a Bryson BHA-1 back in early April and I'm still waiting.)

Anxious to hear a comparison between both amps if you get the chance! And nice testing sample of headphones too :P

Dunno. I ordered the Australian unheard for the LCD-3 - and even though it is a bit early in the listening process, I'm not sure if the Mjolnir will add significant changes to the LCD-3 over the Soloist. 

 

So, I'll wait, and follow impressions in this thread for some time, before I decide. :)

$180 for shipping both ways + tax?

Didn't include taxes since those could be refunded ;)  Just shipping and the 5%.

Here, let me help. I wouldn't worry about that. Just buy one. My Mjolnir only has 40 hours or so on it but my early comparisons with my well run in and much loved Peak have ended up with the Peak sitting powered off. I'll revisit that again once new toy syndrome wears off but the Mjolnir is a pretty incredible amp. In particular, the Mjolnir + the new Denon D7100 is just stunning. I've also tried the HD800, LCD-2, HE-5LE and K701 and they all sound great but these new Denons + the Mjolnir just creates music.

 

BTW, my source chain here is a Mac mini -> firewire -> Metric Halo ULN-2 -> coax -> Denon DCD-A100 SACD Player/DAC connected single ended to the Mjolnir. I've also tried the ULN-2 connected directly via balanced cables but the Denon is so much better that the lack of a balanced connection is irrelevant.

For everyone that has received their Mjolnir... please ignore the above and give your early impressions.  Feel free to update them as they change.  That's sort of why we're here.  If we only wanted to read full reviews written by professions, we'd be at the news stand and only have the very limited options that make it to print on our short lists.  No thanks.

Question for Jason though.  Can these be used on the XLR preamp output to powered monitors?
