Both are on the list, both have researched by me and work well :) the Yulong top end products are all designed by Yulong to have a very analogue sound, which is what makes it stand out: A solid state with all the detail and specs of a solid state and the sound of vinyl - go figure.
The Asgard is bang for buck, many have and still enjoy it with the Denons, but its not "wow" level, well its wow in its price anyway.
Reading over this whole thread and many others, the best choice I seem to have is the Matrix or Asgard unless I missed something. It's really hard to find a damn amp for denons that anyone raves/agrees on, besides maybe $500+ ones.
Also, differing opinions on this site give me comfort.
