Ah yes. you're from the HE-560 thread. I haven't researched the Asgard 2, but I know the Magni and the Asgard were pretty much the same Schiit . Kidding, I just wanted to make that joke. I've heard about the Ember, but somehow I feel compelled to stay with Schiit, plus I'm a big fan of their Norse theme and their minimalistic aesthetics that is how it is for practicality and efficiency sake. The Magni works perfectly fine with the FX850. As it is I'm internally fighting over HE-400i + Schiit Lyr 2 or HE-560. I really wanted the HE-560 to go with my FX850, wood and wood
How do you like your IE800s?
That'd be me! :D Lol, good one. Funny, because there's a review on the front page here that actually has both of them in it. Definitely in a different class. I know how you feel about them. Just the way they do business is rad. It's how I've always wanted a company to be. Fan of the norse and minimalistics as well, andddd efficiency. I swear, minimalism and effiency go hand in hand and are just awesome together. Anyway, ofc the magni does. The FX is not power hungry, lol. Lyr2? Jeebus. Spensiveee. I guess I would only get that if I wanted to have a high powered tube amp (tubes benefit from being able to tailor the sound to your liking more, which is sweet), but I don't have a need with what I'm getting. Plus, I know I'd spend too much money on tubes themselves, lol.
Erm, the IE800's I got were fake, so I'm getting a refund on that soon. In the meantime, I'll be buying ANOTHER set from an Authorized dealer this time. I got the 800's for $435, but I'll be able to get the Authorized ones for $535 (comes with 90 day warranty and they've been tested).
