Why did I waste my time reading all these threads, including all 100 pages of this one? …schiit this and schiit that. Asgard 2 B-stock arrived yesterday and it's awesome. What a great piece! My Emotiva 4s have never sounded better with the preamp and same with the HD598s. I am not going to bother reading all I can on the Bifrost. That will be my next upgrade. The micro streamer, so itty bitty, just looks out of place now and will eventually just be for mobile use. Just on top for purpose of photo as the Asgard does get warm.
I recommend your next upgrade to be HD650, and then Bifrost :)
