The balanced output for the Gungnir, does it use gold or silver contacts?
I got a Mytek 192 and X-Sabre incoming. I'll likely try that Concero with DSD capabilities whenever that comes out as well. I just needed something with a smaller footprint that I could fit onto my desk.
To be fair, the jury is still out on the Mytek. I'll probably post comparative impressions once it gets here, but it's a shame I won't have them side-by-side. I didn't expect the Gungnir to sell as fast as it did.
No impressions yet ?
Sadly these are backordered due to parts shortage. I ordered mine and am waiting. The Mjolnir arrived today. Audeze LCD3 by Friday. But sadly will have to wait a while.
Cannot wait to start listening to this set up.
The Gungnir beat out the more than twice as expensive Bryston BDA-1 in my system (Parasound A21, (preamp varies) Magnepan 1.7 and Velodyne DD-12) I think you'll find it well worth the wait.
Good luck and I hope you get yours soon!
My M/G stack are really nice sounding. I have used them for many thousands of hours of listening with all the Audeze cans I have ownedand always performed flawlessly. IMHO for the money spent, just can't beat these two components. Even though I have a Ragnarok on order, IF I was not up grading (out of curiosity more than anything else) there really is no reason to HAVE to upgrade. I am sure there is better to be had but not for the money spent. You get right into the point of rapidly diminishing returns I think. I think I will keep my Mjo when I get the Rag and then when I can get the Yggy will use the Gungnir/Mjolnir as a second system in the RV. That says a lot that I would rather keep my G/M stack than sell them... BTW might want to lookinto adding the Wyrd for a c-note as it really helps clean up [possible] less than perfect data flow via USB. Made a really noticeable difference to SQ from my chain.
+1. And with the Wyrd arriving today, a very nice combo became not-subtly better.
