Got the email from Jason earlier today. Pre-ordering is open. Now to find a credit card with some available balance!

Huh no email for me :(  No final casing on the site either.  Wonder if the timing is related to Burson's new 4W headamp/pre?

I signed up for the Gungnir but still got the Mjolnir email.

I signed up for both and didn't receive anything. I was going to pull the trigger on a Triple-Stack Balanced Ultra Desktop Package today but decided against it... Now do I wait for the Gungnir too or look for a different balanced DAC.

Incoming thread explosion. Still aren't any new pictures or specs on the final product. I'm a little confused on the inputs. Does it have both RCA and XLR inputs and you only connect one? Or is it a choose one and they build with only one?

I believe it only has balanced inputs. Hence the true "a real balanced amp from input to output".

The specs say :

 

"Inputs: one pair balanced XLR, one pair single-ended RCAs, choose one"

Ahh. I didn't see that. Thanks.

Choose one when ordering, or when operating?

post #59 of 3216

It was discussed back in March.  Comes with both, can only use one at a time.

And...it's that time! Mjolnir pre-order is open, shipping at the end of the month!

If you are part of the interest list, you should have gotten an email already. 

 

To answer some questions:

 

1. Yes, no final chassis photos yet--good work takes time. We should have photos up before we ship.

2. Mjolnir has both balanced and single-ended inputs. However, you can only use one at a time. There's a grounding switch for the single-ended inputs.
