Has anyone used Fiio D07 as a DAC for the Asgard 2?

Also is the Asgard a good amp to drive the HE500?

The Asgard 2 is acceptable for the he500, but you really want the lyr for the that hp.

And as an alternate opinion, I prefer the A2 over the Lyr for most planars. Of course, I'm not fond of messing with tubes, so that might also be part of it.

Don't know about the orthos, but this amp can drive Beyer T1 just fine.

Treble edginess is very much reduced.

I just got my HE-500, I simply amazed. I plugged it into "Laptop >> Fiio D07 >> Schiit Asgard 2". For now, I am satisfied with the D07/Asgard-2 combo and enjoying my HE-500. :beerchug:

If it sounds great. Ban yourself from ever looking at other amps and just enjoy!! Wish that I could take my own advice. :o

I'm quite happy with them but I know that it is definitely not an ultimate setup.

I hook up my Bifrost/Asgard 2 to my Denon receiver, my 600 series B&W speakers suddenly gain 

a new life. A multi-functional system: great for headphones & speakers alike. 

And yes, I listened to a better system, but costing 3 to 4 times more expensive.

I am also using the Asgard 2 as pre-amp to my Denon

receiver. It actually works, and to my surprise, is able to 

extract more dynamic headroom from my old, used-and-abused 

Denon.  Wonderful gear !

I’m looking for a DAC for my Asgard 2. Does the Bifrost Uber have any audible advantage over the Bifrost?

How is the ODAC for the Asgard 2 in campier with the Bifrost?

Nah, it's all marketing. :p Sure it sounds better. I went from bifrost to uber and think that it sound appreciably better and certainly worth the money.

Fully agree with this, uber, to me, is an improvement.
