I've liked this Magni more than my old Asgard, especially with the HD-650 and the Q701 (had the K702 back then though). My source wasn't as good back then so it's hardly fair. Unfortunately I still get lots of cracking and weird stuff going on in the low bass with my Magni and specific cables. Makes no sense to me. Only occurs on a 38ohm headphone.
I do wonder if the ODAC is better or worse (sounding) than the Modi. It might be interesting to try.
If someone told me the Lyr or Asgard 2 improved my $50 DJ100 by about 3-5% I'd go out and buy it immediately
Yep, i'm the only one crazy enough to buy a $400 amp for a $50 headphone!
Not like I have money to spend, but maybe soon.
