    Dan Clark Audio Aeon 2 Noire Discussion/Impressions Thread

    Closest I got was based on this: https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq/blob/master/results/oratory1990/harman_over-ear_2018/Dan%20Clark%20Audio%20Aeon%202%20Noire/Dan%20Clark%20Audio%20Aeon%202%20Noire%20ParametricEQ.txt Moved the 5k and 10k a little lower, IIRC. Caveats: - I listen to the...

    Dan Clark Audio EXPANSE Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    It’s defective, toxic garbage. Put it in a box, PM me, I’ll give you an address and send you the shipment cost. I’ll dispose of it. :p I’ve listened to both and I prefer the Stealth - but they really are both very competent. What you may be enjoying is the wider, taller soundstage with gives...

    Dan Clark Audio EXPANSE Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    Not a problem at all - That’s my work rig (with a Bifrost 2/64 and an Æon Noire, the Stealth is mostly at home). Even at low gain you’ll be hard pressed to go beyond 11…

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I like the Cambridge Audio sound (I have and had a few items). It’s not hard to imagine someone liking the Edge, which is their top of the line. Their DACs are not bad at all, so maybe Darko was also enjoying the overall ”new toy” feel in his system? Edit: I am a very happy Freya+ owner...

    Elementary, my dear Watson! This must have been recorded after dinner on a Tuesday.

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I’ve been enjoying Freya+ for about a month now. Tube-wise, I found JJ and Tung-Sol to provide the sound I tend to enjoy the most. The placement may seem counterintuitive to some, but hey, if it works, I stop touching.

    Schiit Folkvangr - Impressions Thread

    More observations as I spend more time with the Folkvangr: - Impedance multiplier + Grado is bliss. I've tried 325x and PS500e with great results. One would think this amp was specifically designed for the Grado sound. - Gungnir and CXNv2 went really well here. I don't know why I was expecting...

    It has a passive mode but the unit has to be turned on. After grueling volume matching, I am more or less convinced the passive mode is indistinguishable from what I get out of an SA1X.

    MJ2 will be hard to beat. Happy to beta and a/b test in optimal Pacific Northwest conditions (Seattle rain festival ends Dec. 31, next year’s starts Jan. 1st!)

    CD + Plugging the Nucleus into the Urd and then to the Yggdrasil is what I want to do. I want to hear unison to unison, which is something none of us have had before.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Fwiw, Jot2 / Bifrost2 balanced synergy is hard to beat. You’ll be happy. Jot OG was excellent but the new one has more blackground and a super useful on/off for the preamp out. If you don’t care about these two things stay with OG and save $400. I really like my Utopia ‘22 with tubes. Report...

    Jot2 drives my Stealth just fine. Sounds better at high gain (don’t know why), but even at low gain there’s plenty of volume left.
