I'm just getting myself into high end audio, and I'm considering making a purchase of a Bifrost Uber USB2/Asgard 2 to pair with my Grado RS1i that I bought a few months ago. Currently I'm running sound from my motherboard, and was waiting for the cash to make a proper upgrade. I think I have a fairly distinctive ear, and would love to be able to afford a beefier combo than this, but I think this should work to start.
I listen to mainly rock/metal/electronic music. Is this combo the right direction to go to pair with RS1i or is there a different setup that would light up my ears in a more profound way? What else for around $800 with cables should I be steered to instead?
I am tempted to go ahead and buy this today in time for a big birthday bash I'm holding at my place on Saturday. Lots of friends are already curious to hear the RS1i, and I'd love to have this combo to go with it when they come. I can distinctly tell that the motherboard is significantly holding these headphones back as they are!
So, any advice about some other combo I don't know about, or is this the way to go? Much appreciated!
