I have the Asgard 2 rev 1 and I have used my Klipsch x10 (50ohm, 110dB) with it and there is no hiss on low gain with volume at any level, however, with music muted I can turn the volume pot up to about 12 o'clock position before I hear very slight noise/hum from the amp.  There is hiss on high gain with volume pot all the way down and the noise starts at bout 11 o'clock.

 

Normal volume on low gain the volume pot is at about 9:30 or so.  LOUD listening is at a bout 11-12 o'clock.  Hurting starts at about 1-2 o'clock.  didn't go beyond that obviously.

High gain normal listening is at about 7-8 o'clock. LOUD listening is at about 10-11 o'clock.  Hurt starts at 12 o'clock.

Thanks for the replies guys. Seems like the Asgard 2 will probably be the next amp that I get. Seems like the consensus is that there is little to nos hiss on low gain with sensitive headphones.

Same reason I ordered one, seems to work well with several models (Grado, Beyer, Senn.). I'll post my impression soon as i receive the amp.

I decided on this amp for my home office. I was looking at some powered monitors, and the preamp output, plus driving headphones is perfect for my needs. Heard nothing but good things about Schiit stuff. May need to pick up one of their DACs down the line.

Stupid question. Can I drive some Audio Engine p4's from the A2? And if so how does the connection work?
post #383 of 1934

No, but the A-5's would work great.

Awesome!

 

Can you give us a break down of what you guys did to revamp the A2?

post #388 of 1934

Good news. Now if I could just make up my mind...Asgard 2 or Valhalla.

post #389 of 1934

What is your source?  What are you trying to drive?
