Cool! Could you describe the change in sound when switching from the integrated T1 amp to the Asgard 2? In comparison to the HDVD800 amp, I found the T1 amp to be "warmer," less detailed, having a more narrow soundstage. Interestingly, I liked the T1 amp more than the HDVD800 when feeding the Sennheiser HD600. I found the HDVD800 to makes highs "sizzle" a bit too much when paired with the HD600 headphones.

I found the t1 amp thin sounding. The Asgard 2 gave more body to the sound. It also opened up the soundstage. A good test is, if you have porcupine tree lightbulb sun, listen to the end of hate song and compare the sound of the floor tom in the right channel between amps. You'll see what I mean...

Also, if you have that album, listen to the end of Russia on ice. The first time I heard that song with the Asgard I was like holy crap! I didn't know the 580's bass could hit that hard and low.

I only use the dac section of the t1 and want to upgrade to a higher end dac. Any suggestions?
