preach!

It's got nothing to do with whether you agree or disagree. I just don't see how I can expand on the one opinion any more than I have. It's no big deal to hijack a thread over, I was just responding to a comment that was directed at a previous comment of mine.

Again, I hope not to argue about a personal opinion of mine regarding other models, while other members click new posts here hoping to find useful information about this amp. No doubt you'll respond in a way, hoping it returns to normal audio chat after that.

Ugh, I got my magni/modi off the used thread and I am hearing this static and sort of a pop through my hd 650's. I don't know if either the amp or the dac is defective but I really doubt its the headphones, any tips?

Are you five? lol you said something, I came back with a response (a very calm and calculated response, pertaining to the Schiit Magni, I might add), and then you insulted me and are now acting like everyone is veering off topic to spite you or something.

 

You said something about the Magni. I responded. That's what we do on a forum, kiddo. But yes, since you're so keen to get back on topic, let's do that ...

 

Any owners of the Asgard feel that the Magni is a slap in the face to them because it's so good? I suggest we all email Schiit and ask them to put some lower quality parts and maybe rough up each Magni before they send it out.

I definitely passes on the PYST cables - seemed like they weren't a great deal and weren't a great size for the smaller Schiit stack. When I get a Lyr + Bifrost or something similar, I'll definitely look into them though. I got a reasonably priced RCA cable from Blue Jeans Cables for my M&M

Twenty bucks a pair? How much more reasonable are we talking about? wink.gif

Your clearly easily agitated, also likely younger than me. In any case you misunderstood the comment. Wouldn't it make more sense to add to the value if the higher model to justify the financial difference in a sonic gain, rather than detract from the budget one? In any case it's obviously a moot point.

The Asgard was announced in June of 2010, the Magni in Dec of 2012. A gap of almost 2 1/2 years.....in what realm of consumer electronics is this "making another product very quickly after the first?" Are you just disappointed that you bought a product at the end of it's life cycle and quickly becoming obsolete?

 

Considering that the Asgard 2 was just announced today, I'm sure this news must be much more annoying than the Magni.

My Dell laptop at work is terrible for sound quality and I get pops and random static. Try other USB ports, another computer, and other electrical outlets. BTW, don't use a surge protector--the cheap ones are very noisy.

I would like to see them "take a poker to the high end" as you say, just not sure they should do it to their own cliental.

 

Sorry man, cant really respond to your final comment as i dont get it.


No offense intended my man. My post is aimed at high end dogma, not you personally. The sharply humorous tone of their web site tells me they are doing some poking; at the industry, at everyone, including themselves. See we can be in it, and laugh at it at the same time. What's wrong with offering a way for their customers to decide if the better parts make a difference to them, or if they want to cook their burgers or not? Now there's "Asgard 2". I really want to see an upgrade power supply for this thing. lololololol.

Finally they realised the need for having a gain switch... 1.5x gain is nice. Preamp out as well.
