Someone was asking about LCD3s, yes the Mjolnir is perfect with LCD3 and the combination is tremendously good.

This Mjolnir looks nice. Your Beta22 costs $3750? 4 or 5 channels? My 2-channel Beta22 only costs $600 and sounds pretty good with LCD-2s.

The NTS (New Toy Syndrome) last maybe more than the burn-in time; so burn-in is exaggerated...

BTW: A picture of the flip / back side of the Mjolnir on the home page would be nice. 

 

The pronunciation of Mjolnir is easy...and I am more keen to know the name of the überamp to come...

Very early impression with 1 hour warm up and 1 minute listening... wow it goes deep!  None of the other amps through here go as deep.  No obvious flaws either, certainly nothing that jumps out and makes you want to tear off the headphones.  Any yes it gets toasty.  Much hotter than the Soloist, little colder than the B22.  More impression after the kids go to bed and I can do a proper listen in silence ;)

If you have owned any of the other Schitt amps, could you comment on the heat compared to them?

 

thanks...

I'm hungry on a Saturday morning. Can I cook some eggs on your amp? Please?

Agreed. Until recently, I thought the Mjolnir had either XLR or RCA inputs (the product description on the page strongly implies this) but not both. This was the deciding factor that made me choose the Bryston BHA-1 over the Schiit. A photo would have shown that assumption to be false, and I might have made a different purchase decision.

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

 

That line has been at the bottom of the Mjolnir page since it was posted...and its been mentioned quite a few times in the thread that it had both single ended and balanced input. but it only has balanced output. But it is also not an input switch, you should only have one of the inputs plugged in at a time, with the switch also set to the correct input

Yup... my interpretation of "choose one" was that you could have one or the other installed, but not both. Totally my fault in misinterpreting the information AND in not following this thread closely enough, but again, a photo would have kept dullards like myself from misunderstanding.

It looks like they are shipping in single ended mode.  So anyone using XLR inputs do toggle over after unpacking ;)

If you have them both plugged in how much carry over is there between the inputs?

My one and only... LCD-3 RMA.  Also first time I step in the Schiit so can't comment on the heat compared to the Asgard or Lyr.

The LCD-2 sounds great through the Mjolnir. Bass is immense and subterranean but tightly controlled. The most impressive aspect of the sound though is the soundstage. The LCD-2 can sound walled in, but the narrow corridor presentation is rendered non existent by the Mjolnir. Instruments are still forward, with the listener placed in the midst of the performers, but the band is no longer in a confined, claustrophobia inducing area. There is space, reaching beyond the point of origin. I've heard my LCD-2 balanced before, but I can't recall the horizontal stage this airy. Stereo separation is nice, though the centre image is still a tad too close for my liking. This aspect is an inherent quality of the LCD-2 though. The Mjolnir does not add a Dolby Headphone like DSP. It presents your headphones, and other components, as they are.
