Just my luck, got the Mjolnir today and have to catch a plane to NY.  Just opened to see the chassis and thats it.  This 2 weeks are gonna be so hard.  Same thing happened when I my Eximus DP-1.  Glad to see more of you guys are getting yours.  My serial is 112.

More impressions please! People asking how the LCD-2 sounds from the Mjolnir should already know the Audez'e sounds good from any half decent amp. Unless Schiit have failed miserably, it should go without saying the LCD-2 will be damn good from the Mjolnir. The HD800/HE-6 impressions are what will provide the most insight into what this amp is capable of. Need people to elaborate more on those.

You lucky guys with your new toy would you describe the Mjolnir as:

 

A) Warm // neutral // cold

B) Lots of slam and PRAT // more laid back and smooth

C) Images well // diffuse imaging

D) Harsh and aggresive leading edges // smoth and flowing leading edges

E) Slow // medium // fast

Preliminary impressions of course, but I'd describe it as transparent and highly resolving with effortless dynamics. I don't perceive any significant color coming from the amp it self but how true that is is really hard to say. The sound you're going to get out of it is largely determined by the source you feed it with (and the headphones of course). Give it a bright shrill source (or recording) and the amp is going to be perceived as bright and shrill, give it a warm syrupy one and the amp will be warm and syrupy. So I guess I'd answer your categories this way.

 

A) neutral (although exactly what that means is harder to define than it should be)

B) Lots of slam and PRAT assuming the source is providing it.

C) If the source provides the imaging it will allow it through and then it's largely up to the headphones. For instance the HD800 tends to have slightly more diffuse imaging than something like the HE-5LE or D7100. 

D) I don't known how to separate this from the sound of the source. The sound I get is smooth and musical with no harshness.

E) fast

 

It's been my experience that way too many headphones amps color the sound too much. I just want the amp to stay out of the way and amplify my source signal without molesting it. So far the Mjolnir is doing as good of a job as I've heard even compared to some much more expensive amps that I've owned/own.

kstaken, how does your HE-5LE sound out of the Mjolnir compared to your other amps?

Damn you! Buying urge increasing... tongue_smile.gif

 

Certainly sounds like my kind of amp - I like my amps to have slam and PRAT but I think I want to try and move away a little from the very warm coloration that my current HA-160 is providing.

 

And... once again sorry about my mistake earlier.
