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.
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.
