    Bottlehead Amplifier Discussion / Comparison Thread: Crack, SEX & Mainline

    Didn't have my mainline when I picked up Utopia. I've learned though, that Utopia is happiest with very very low output impedance (amp). I'd say no more than a few Ohms at the most. Don't remember the specs for mainline 'Z' out, but amps with low output impedance tend to drive Utopia better.

    Official HIFIMAN HE1000 Impressions Thread

    I'm running a Norne S2 with HE1KV2 - stellar cable. Quite a bit more expensive though. Stock cable is pretty good IMO - but sonics can be improved with a cable upgrade. Take care though - not all silver cables perform in a similar fashion, and are generally to be avoided if your chain tends...

    ^ What he said :-)   Glad you mentioned the case - didn't want to 'out' your efforts; cause if I was reading this, building this amp, and you weren't making it for me.... I'd be dogging ya!

    Dsavitsk/Beezar Torpedo Build Thread

    Hey Doug - I'm thinking about picking up your L2 MB as a build over winter. Would I be correct to assume that the custom Cinemag OPTs would work with the L2 also?

    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    My player (Audirvana Plus) uses iZotope for the conversion and does a very good job of converting DSD to PCM for Yggy. Much of my library is SACD too, and sounds wonderful through Yggy (limited by source recording quality, of course).

    This impression has only strengthened with more listening. Further, I believe many of the early reviews / conclusions will change or evolve as we recalibrate our assumptions / expectations - which frame our listening experience.
