Though I prefer Naim/Beyer A1 combination. But the Naim DAC alone costs $3500.

That  Naim system sounds so incredible and brought out the sublime best of T1 that  decided to

purchase the Beyer in a week.

 

My Bifrost/Asgard 2 system probably achieves 80% of the Naim/Beyer A1 system. 

There's still some treble glare & loose bass in some tracks. But not much else

really. Incredible bargain. 

Appreciate the response, I have Modi so far is that worth upgrading to bifrost? I would probably use the upgraded usb if i got it upgraded. Thoughts on that?

Bifrost has a better analogue stage than the Modi.

Congrats for your Uber/Asgard2 combo. :beerchug:  Have you really sold your HD650 and kept the HE-400? :eek:

I don't like the HD650 at all next to the HE-400.

Ironically I've come to favor the hd650 over the he400. 

 

Also there is now a three week wait time on the Asgard 2 in case anyone is wanting one.

Yep, I think I mentioned that our biggest problem is keeping things in stock around the holidays. We're trying to keep up, but things are already looking a bit thin.

 

Last year, I believe we were out of stock on *everything* at the end of the year except Magni and Modi, which were introduced Dec 13.

Sorry, I have not kept up with this thread. I retract my earlier comment. I only ask because I remember Jason saying no way no how on black and then I saw it as a choice on the site. 

 

Again, question withdrawn and my apologies.

I also saw you in the HD800 Appreciation Thread. ;)   Congrats!

Sorry about the late reply. That may be due to your Mac Mini and a lack of RAM or bad usb port. My USB out sounds better than my SPDIF out and plus it doesn't make the noisy relay clicks that the SPDIF does
