I'll see your magic fairies and I'll raise you some cables cryo'd with unicorn tears.

Oh I took it as such so no worries.

Thanks for the update Jason. I ordered A2 back on May 31 and looking really forward to it.

 

I have a Bifrost, Lyr, Asgard, Modi, and Magni........all great......

Man, when my bro ordered this for me, he must have picked the absolute perfect time.  I got mine around 7 days after the 'official' order date.  This was back around early May, though.  Love mine, though :).  It's worth the wait, guys.

Ordered A2 yesterday & emailed Jason. I explained to him that I read his explanation for the delay in production & shipping posted on this thread but asked him if he could still give me a ballpark figure as to a date he might start shipping (I also asked him not to yell at me).  He replied almost immediately : 

 

If we start shipping next week, expect another week after that to clear the backorders. We're deep, deep in backorder on Asgard 2.


All the best,

Thanks for the updates. From his post I expected most of them to end up shipping within 1-2 weeks. Glad to get the full story on backorders, though. Can't wait to complete my Bifrost/Asgard stack. Now all I need is the Uber upgrade.

I have to say I don't really hear much of a difference when plugging in my Sennheiser HD 600 into the Asgard 2 from just plugging it straight into my mixer, a Behringer Eurorack 2004A. Will give it some more time just in case the break-in period actually has anything to say, though.

Update no.2 received today July 1, 2013 (Happy Canada Day BTW)

 

 

Robert,
 
We are waiting on the delivery of completed boards from our board house.  If you just ordered your unit would probably be built on our third or fourth day of production once the boards start coming in.  The short holiday week makes estimating a little difficult.  Best case we ship your order around July 10.  Worst case July 16.  Unless something truly unexpected happens.  The board production is handled by a contract electronics assembly company in Simi Valley.  They do a great job but with everything handled off site based on the contractors timelines it can be a little challenging estimating delivery dates.
 
Thanks,
 
Alex Martin

Just out of curiosity, has anyone received their Asgard 2 yet?  I realize it's going to take them some time to pump them out but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask some of you all.

I got my new switches to try and fix my damaged one and put them in a few minutes ago.  Nothing....

 

The volume knob makes some scratchy sound for the first 5-10% of a turn, and then there is no sound confused.gif

 

Oh well, it at least  I gave it a try, pretty disappointed....

 

***UPDATE***

 

Well I decided to hook it up to my SACD Player and see what happens, I was only using an iPod Nano to test it out and I have sound! It is in the scratchy part of the volume knob rotation and it is low, but it is pretty clear and goes away when I turn on "low gain" mode, but them if i turn it all the way up it makes some noise, with pops, but it makes noise. So...maybe I need to replace the volume knob as well? Hum....maybe the patient can be saved yet!
