Oh Schiit, it's the end of the world! Announcing Ragnarok. - Page 3

post #31 of 340

Man this thing looks beefy, and should be insane sounding. I was deciding between waiting for this or getting the new Violectric V281, and eventually went with the V281 only because I dont need speaker output capabilities, and it will probably break my desk in half lol (its from ikea). But otherwise if I had another 1700 bucks laying around, I'd just get both! lol. and if I had more money laying around after that, I'd get speakers just because I'd have an amp for them. But sadly I have yet to learn how to grow a money tree in m backyard yet, so this is all but a dream ;)

I hope I get chosen for the beta! I was so excited I forgot to put my whole list of headphones I was going to try, hah.

 

Edit: After seeing Maxvla update his headphone list, I want to update it too!!

 

1. Sennheiser Momentums

2. Westone 4r 

 

(these are mainly to show I am able to try lower impedance headphones on the Ragnarok)

One of the reviewers at Stereophile drove the KEF LS50's with the NAD D 3020 (and loved the results) so you should have no problem at all driving them with the Ragnarok.

Cool, I signed up for the Beta, will give it a try against my Peachtree setup, which is severely lacking on the headphone output side of things.

The Ragnarok was reviewed in the Head-Fi SUMMER Buying Guide. In that review Jude used the Ragnarok to power a pair KEF LS50, with impressive results.

Thanks, I'll check that out, must be nice getting to review products before they are even released in Beta!

Oh, that's interesting. I signed up within minutes of this thread posting and the headphone entry field was not there. Jason, can you edit my entry to include:

AKG K-550
Hifiman RE-262
Koss Portapro
MEElectronics M9
Sennheiser HD600
Sennheiser HD800
Sony MA900
Ultimate Ears Reference Monitor

Hah, I was just thinking that if Bear got in on this, then the Rag is only a short drive and a quick border hop away...

One step at a time, let's just get the Ragnarok first and call that a day.

From the comparison with LCD-X, Rag is not that as big as I thought.

post #43 of 340

How does the headphone amplifier in this compare to the Mjolir? Is it a real balanced amp from input to output?

post #44 of 340

too bad i'm not in CONUS...but will be looking forward to the reviews. interested in a speaker/head amp for later this year and rag is on the top of the list...good luck to all the beta testers.

post #45 of 340

Looking forward to impressions with Fostex TH900. I might be in the market for a new amplifier in next year or so. :wink_face:
