Hehe, yes i meant that the HE-400 has slighly ressesed mids and that the asgard seems to fill them up a bit :D.
I will be able to test the HD Titanium by this weekend (long story short, i dont have the mental sanity untill the weekend to do that).
Im not sure if the Optical (SPDIF I) output of the Titanium HD carries the effects of the sound card, ill try to figure that one out as well.
Know what you mean.. I have loaned 2 DAC's and an amp that I am supposed to give impressions on, and soon I'll have to post 'em back..
