I was wondering about the asgard 2 compared to the magni/modi for the he-400 and mbp.

My bro who lives in USA is coming to Thailand next month and I am asking him to buy one for me. I will be using it with the he-400 and mac book pro, it is a nice combo?
All answer appreciated.

I think the voltage in Thailand is 220-240. In that case the Magni will need a step up transformer. The Modi will work with a plug adapter.

Forgive for my lack of engineering skills. This step up transformer you mention, would it be available in IT malls locally in Thailand or should I have my brother order it online in USA as well?

 

Thanks a lot!

Guys,

 

I'm looking for a portable set-up that has the HE-400 sound signature. Trying to avoid IEM due to a painful experience of one coming off and causing pain in the left ear to the "pop" (still recovering). Would like to know if there's a light weight unit that has good sound isolation that I can carry around.

A good electrical/electronics shop will have these transformers locally. Having said that, I bought a heavy duty transformer from the US when I moved back to India and it worked great for a long time. The issue is one of the frequency as well. In the US its 60 Hz; I think it is 50 Hz in Thailand. Hence ensure that the transformer will take care of the frequency difference as well. FWIW, I asked Jason at Schiit this question last month and he told me the company was working on a 220/240 model for the Magni.

Thanks Kothganesh

 

BTW another question.

 

The PYST RCA is for connecting the Magni to the Modi right?

To connect the magni/modi to the macbook pro, do I need to buy the USB PYST as well?

 

Thanks

I think it was originally designed to connect the larger lyr and byfrost.  People have reported that it's too stiff and lifts the rear of whatever is on top of the stack between magni/modi.  People have solved the problem using rubberbands.

How do I connect the Magni/Modi combo to my mac book pro?

Will the USB PYST USB do the job?

post #9984 of 19921

usb from macbook pro to modi.  rca from modi to magni.  headphone plugs into magni.

i sure hope these drastically change with the velours, i just put them on for the first time, going latop-foobar2000-fiio e17 on gain 12 and 0 eq, and am absolutely dissapointed in the lack of everything. Theyre just so unimpressive, and this is coming from shure srh840s and grado sr80is. PLEASE tell me i really need brain burn in, and changing to velours will make everything all better. Because otherwise, the gracious 30 day return policy from justin at headamp, will be in use. I also need to try these on my pioneer sx727 at home, because i believe i need more POWER!!!!

just want to apologize for being so negative, i think i just expected to much. Ive wanted these things for a year, and read so much, i guess i just thought id be blown away, since the best HP ive heard was a sennheiser hd598, and as of now, i like those better.

For the connect from the laptop to the Modi (I guess you will go laptop -->DAC --> Amp), you will need the USB PYST.

aha, well, unfortunately im out of town in a hotel until friday night!!!! stuck with a fiio e17, needless to say, it looks like the shure 840+e17 may go back up for sale, hope the dac destroyer plus sx727- which has been redone by the way, out of my desktop, will sound better. Oh and plus the velour changeout too! I really really really want to like these

If they lack everything then you need to turn volume up.  :P
