    Schiit Magni 3 VS Asgard 2

    Asgard 2 is pure class A amp and magni 3 is class ab. Asgard 2 has a lot better pot/parts and is higher class amp than magni 3. Sound wise, if your used to pure class A Asgard magni 3 would definitely be harsher, but not terrible, it's still should sound like a decent amplifier, if rather raw...

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Would love for it to have bigger battery, hope still have exchangeable amp modules and if luck is on our side compatible with all previous ones as well. Tbh was hoping for es9039spro for dac chip. But if it's their own discrete dsd dac would not be disappointed either.

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Imagine it to be their new pwm dac like in d16, from their wording. Otherwise would like it to be es9039spro.

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Also interested in dac selection and price most of all, but in general specs as well, will it still have exchangeable amp cars, will they be compatible with already existing ones etc. Have no doubt it's will be a sonic upgrade to dx240.

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    From naming scheme seems portable dac amp and portable amp respectively. For dac amp, they developed their own pwm discrete resistor dac, took over 3 years of development. The other product is a dual nutube headphone amplifier powered by 6 batteries and output power of 1.7wpc at 32ohm...

    Introducing The Zen Can Signature! A Premium Desk-Fi Headphone Amp!!

    It's the same as in first zen can. Every pot in the world sounds best after 11 o'clock and has a lot more room for fine tuning than at say 9 o'clock. After 11o'clock your on the last single track on the pot, till then there are two or 3 smaller treacks with sticking that hold them together...

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Excuse me, but the back is coated with some velvetty or silk like feeling material, atleast that's how it's on mine and my brother's one. Alcohol should not be used to clean it, just a microfiber cloth is enough.

    Sennheiser HD 660S2 thread

    Legitime and a rather ,big pro audio store , mostly DJ focus, but also everything else. Can buy from them with confidence. Used to buy ally cables and plugs, and headpads from them.

    Sony is acquiring Audeze

    This is not true ever since PS4 came out, last gen of consoles to be sold at a Los was ps3 Xbox 360. After that they made sure to double dip, by selling mid range pc spec consoles with a profit up front. The days of consoles competing with high end pc at the time of their release are long gone.

    Cayin N30LE DAP: A Transformative Milestone (30th Anniv. Limited Edition)

    Another way of seeing it is how little our money is worth today. Inflation across all fields and in some more than 10x so it kind of is natural that this has huge numbers behind the price tags. Not trying to excuse the prices, but can actually see where they are coming from and why they are what...

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Perhaps, but not in the same spot, have squeezed one in in my amp1mk3 , but it's barely in there and it has nothing underneath it on that board if I'm right, amp5 has some stuff underneath that place. But good suggestion none the less thanks.

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Nice take on this one, two weeks ago did mod my amp5mod, changed the nichicons for audio note kasei BP 25uf16v and the Siemens one for audio note standard 470uf16v. Didn't believe but love this way more now. The way imaging and timbre have changed is spectacular, would love to be able to put...

    Calling All "Vintage" Integrated/Receiver Owners

    Love you parts choice, should be very pleasing and resolving sound. Amtrans are probably best sounding carbon resistors around. Enjoy your amp.

    Super (capacitor) charging your iFi Zen Can (and other zen products and possibly other manufacturers)

    Thanks, actually super similar to what I'm in the process of doing to my luxman l190, it's 9184model with 30wpch at 8ohms. Only you actually have real understanding of how these things are designed or actually work, I'm just replacing components with mostly equivalent parts that I find most...

    Super (capacitor) charging your iFi Zen Can (and other zen products and possibly other manufacturers)

    One question to you would be what's your favourite price no object capacitors for audio power supplies? Mine so far are audio note kasei or mundorfs ag mlytics. But have been wondering about quality of polymer electrolytic caps for some time now, are they comparable with the best wet...

    Wow! Sennheiser HD 540 Reference are so good.

    Then the felt rings might be a solution in your case, otherwise you can try and make those rings out of toilet paper. Know sounds weird. Did that with my hd 560 their supposed to come with some paper/cellulose rings on them that cover most of the driver with a very small open dome in center...

    Wow! Sennheiser HD 540 Reference are so good.

    From my own experience, yes very much so, you can just put the ones you have in your 250s in there and see what it does. I have never tried golds without them only 250s. Cause they came with non and where very disappointing without the rings, way to sharp and felt like treble was 3db higher than...

    Wow! Sennheiser HD 540 Reference are so good.

    Don't try they'll sound dead to you, only golds and hd 250s are intended to have them. Highs will be completely gone and mids recessed beyond belief.

    Wow! Sennheiser HD 540 Reference are so good.

    You still have the second felt rings that go on top right? Those are pretty important. If not that would explain your treble experience. Don't trow those whole felt pads, their very worn by now and the foam inside is kind of half desintegrated. Originally they had felt on them, most have it worn...

    DX240 DAP. DAC ES9038PRO - NEW: AMP8MK2S .****** NEW Firmware! 2.01 *******

    Very much doubt thath from my own experience, even with my golds plugged in it lasted around 8,5h in high gain with some albums at 100 volume most at around 92. Mostly around 10 percent an albums some like 15, depending on length. 25% cd Redbook rest various sampling rate 24bit pcm or dsd. For...
