I'm actually weighing the pros and cons of the Schiit products to go along wih the MDs I will order. Is it better to upgrade the amp or the DAC?
I mean, is it better to get the Asgard 2 and the Bifrost (DAC upgrade) or is it better to get th Valhalla or Lyr and the Modi DAC (Amp upgrade)?
Or will I get good enough results with the Asgard 2 and Modi? Damn, I'm lost... The good news is that I can buy tthe Schiit products directly from them, they sell worldwide and with the right 230V voltage and EU plugs...
I can't upgrade both the amp and DAC but I wonder which upgrade will give the best results...
As a former long time Lyr owner, I must remind you that you have to factor in the cost of decent tubes to your equation. The stock tubes are just terrible (not just my opinion). Might have to spend $50~$100 on tubes to see what the Lyr can actually do.
Personally... I would get Asgard 2 + Modi. That sounds like a lot of fun. Although I did love my Bifrost when I had it. It also seems like DAC technology is changing much faster than Amps. So you're Asgard 2 will still be good when Modi 2 or 3 comes out and Modi 2 will probably be better than Bifrost 1.
