In my pairing of the 800's and the mojo, the inner details and resolution and especially the bass extension are marvelous.

I think the Mjolnir is a first-rate amp, and I'm sure you're enjoying it with your modded HD800s. I agree that the HD800s can sound very neutral with the right chain feeding it. That being said, I think the HD800 (unmodded) is bright out of the G/M chain, and I don't see many HD800 owners (or others with headphones that can run bright) preferring the Mjolnir. We all have our preferred voicing, and with head-fi--you only have to please an audience of one.

oh wow, that is so not what I mean!

 

I am extremely happy with my headphone rig: the Oppo BDP-103 feeding the Uber feeding the Burson has me in sonic heaven, and reminding me why I left vinyl behind back in te 80's.  I feel for the first time that I have a system that can really deliver the dynamic range and pure sound of digital.

 

Every night I stare at the Marantz receiver that powers my Ohm Micro Walsh Talls, and view it as a sonic compromise with bells and whistles I'm not interested in any longer.  I was initially considering picking up a classic McCintosh, Bryston,  or even a Krell 2 channel amp (used and as inexpensive as possible).  But the Ragnarok seems like it could be THE solution to all of my transducers, and with no compromise.  I really do put Schiit on the same playing field as the companies I mentioned earlier, just without the insanely over-built $3000 chassis.

 

There is no way I would ever view taps from Schiit as an add-on.  Then again, I rarely post outside of the Grado or Alpha Dog threads, so you guys don't know much about me...

Re-examining the posts, it was actually Defiant00 that posted most of what I was talking about, you just agreed. Sorry to single you out.

Hope the clunk noise when Lyr is powered on, does not exists with Ragnarok. Lyr when powered on make so much noise, sometime I fear it would damage HP drivers.

Doesn't your Lyr have a muting relay?

I do not understand the technical team 'muting relay', the way I can describe is, HP makes lot of sound when I turn Lyr on with HP connected. Not sure it is common problem with all Lyr's or just the one I have.

 

When I turn Lyr on, HP make sound more than 100 db, like clunk...clut...clut. Same happens with HD-650 and HE-400 or any other HP I tried with

early lyr's didnt have a muting relay. i had an early serial one and use to turn mine on then plug in the hps to be safe, same thing on power down, hps out then turn off, pretty simple.

The problem is others in my family are also using my setup these days, cannot remind then often. the point is, when we are playing for quality product why we need to deal with these issues. Otherwise I just love my Lyr, they are awesome.

The relay mutes the Lyr for a few seconds once it's turned on. If you have an early Lyr without the relay circuit, I'm pretty sure Schiit will install one without charge.

Thanks for suggestions, will contact Schiit customer service. I had wonderful experience with them in past, on request they had send me accessories for free.

The relay has a 20 second delay I believe. I always wait on my other tube amps to warm up before plunging in the headphones.

From the camp of being redundant:  I sure would like to see the Rag and the Ygg in Black :biggrin:
