Haven't heard the Asgard 2; I actually jumped off the portable deep end and sold my full-sized setup. With the HD600s and LCD-2s though I actually preferred my Asgard over the Lyr, I seem to in general prefer a more solid state character (and I don't want to get into tubes), and at my listening levels I doubt I'm taking advantage of the Lyr's extra power. I did like the Lyr with the K701 though, since I was able to find some tubes that tamed the treble enough that I was able to enjoy them.
Meets are on hold for me for now as we're expecting our second daughter any day now (wife was due Saturday...still waiting...) and we aren't going to be doing much traveling for a while once she gets here :)

I have heard good things from a number of people about using Bifrost with speakers, as yes, a DAC is a DAC and it isn't specifically designed for headphones.
