No, this would be anathema to Schiit's whole product line.


Anathema? Is that in the original Greek sense of something dedicated to the gods, or in the later Abrahamic sense of something despised by their god?

 

Assuming the second sense. :)   Not sure why, I would be interested to hear the Freya 6SN7 topology with headphones.

That's for Mjolnir 3.

Balanced Valhalla 3 with 4 pin XLR, that's what I want. I want it so bad.

Is it worth buying a 4pin XLR cable for a TH-900 mk2 to be used on the Mjolnir 2? Will I get three hundred dollars worth of improved sound? The impedance is so low there will be plenty of power with a 1/4" connector, don't you think?

Jason is on the record as being skeptical of the sonic improvements of balanced for OTL amps. That said, I'd be interested in a Valhalla 3 with a quieter power supply.

 Mike,

Thanks good to know Well I intend to place my order for one(mule 2)  &  probably 2 Vidars when they come out to run my Magnipan 1. 7i in mono mode 400 watts AB high current (assuming they are high current amps) at 4 ohm should make me happy for the front end I am just going to tie them into my Parasound Halo integrated  amp  at least for now.  Vidars are cheap in comparison  to Parasound A 21 that  I have been considering .

I'd like a Mule 2 with TWO sets of tubes, allowing me to switch between two sets of NOS tubes. :p Of course I know this won't happen.

What is a Mule 2? I tried Googleing it and all that came up was a backpack.

I saw Mike call this amp a Mule, so... There you go.

Easier to spell, harder to google

Haha fair enough, that does explain why google didn't give me any results. Had my Mule 2 for about 3 months and still loving it! biggrin.gif

I was also very confused when Mike mentioned enjoying his Mule 2, but I got over it a minute later.

It is only because I am either lazy or crave easy English associations.

If I may ask, why not stick with the stock tubes on the MJ2?

 

MJ2 is a fantastic amp, but if you are going to just go solid state, I'd stick with Asgard 2 or Jotunheim and it seems the Jotunheim is the more capable of the pair.

 

Perhaps get the Modi Multibit and Jotunheim, very good affordable combo.

 

I will now get a Gumby + MJ2 with stock tubes, since LISST is not available right now. This is my introduction to tube sound, I am curious :)

 

I will get the LISSTs when they become available again as well, though, to see/listen for myself.

 

Now I am only searching for the right headphones to go along, Ether Flow is my favorite so far. "Unfortunately", we have two shops with Audeze, Hifiman, Oppo, Sennheiser and Stax etc., but no Mr.Speakers to have a listen.
