NEW - Schiit Asgard 2 - Page 76

post #1126 of 2478

The Magni has the same issues.  Its volume pot isn't the most controlled, and it has a high fixed gain, so there won't be much play with the W1000x.  The Asgard2 will have a lot of play.

Cheers, sounds like it's the Asgard then. I'm not sure what you mean by a lot of play tho, just a simple Yorkshireman I'm afraid wink.gif So I will need the low gain setting for the W1000x?

By play I mean the amount of travel you can have on the volume pot.  With the Magni and a sensitive Audio Technica headphone like the AD700, you only get around 7-8 o'clock.  9 o'clock is getting too loud, and the near bottom of the pot has channel imbalance.

Right... Got it now, cheers.

The channel imbalance and high gain is the exact reason why I upgraded from the Magni to the Asgard 2. The channel imbalance issue is now almost entirely nonexistent and I have a lot of play with the volume pot. Even at high gain I sit at about 12 o'clock with my T90s whereas I was hanging around at 10 or 11 on the magni

^^ And I was about 8-9 on the Magni and the Vali.

I was much too lazy to read the whole thread :D so I apologize if this has already been asked but I was wondering what is included in the box.  Is Schiit shipping this with RCA cables I can connect to my Dragonfly?  Or should I order some Audioquest Evergreens?  I also would like to use my HE-400 cable with it, does it have an adapter included?

Thanks! :beerchug:

All you get is the amp and power cable... no extras.

Only cable inncluded is the powercable.

Thank you kind sirs. Guess I'll be ordering some extras. That means a bit more saving to do...

Just order some short Monoprice RCAs.

Been using this great amp with my T90s for about a month and a half now and I continue to be impressed by the pairing. Highly recommended if you crave an insane amount of detail from your music.

So Asgard 2 should play well with more headphones when compared to Magni?

I used quite a few headphones with asgard 2 and think they all work pretty well (lcd2,dt990,momentum,se535,and apple earpods XD)

I'm less worried about high impedance cans than I am about low impedance cans. I know for sure a PX 100-II and XBA-3 does work on a Magni. Maybe it will work on an Asgard 2 on low gain?
