Funnily, the Gungnir when paired with Vali or the BH Crack does not pose the same discomfort I experienced with the G/M combo.

I would be grateful if someone could let me know the damping factor of thr speaker output. Thanks

The amp has 0.03 ohm output impedance.

Some might say the "infamous 'tubey' sound".

The Vali is not tubey sounding in the infamous way. It soesn't seem to roll off the treble to my ears either-just sweetens it up a titch. I would call the Crack and ss m-Stage more 'tubey sounding' than the Vali-a sound some people may prefer to the more honest sounding Vali. ;)

Agreed. HF clarity from the Vali is amazing. And this little buddy can drive the more sensitive orthos admirably. Just paired it with my HE-500 via an analog front end - superb sound with no lack of grunt.

 

Oopss..sorry to derail this thread..

Please make Ragnarok sounds better than balanced dynalo/dynahi. So I will have an excuse to buy it. :k701smile:

Its a DC coupled Circlotron. You MUST buy it. You know you want to.

post #2697 of 4225

Now that's funny.  The question now is can that circlotron be be miniaturized for portable duty?

I know this is silly, but I wish it had dual 3 pin XLRs... I should have gone with 4 pin balanced cables.  Hind sight...
