    Schiit Gungnir DAC

    So, has anyone done the unison upgrade? Would you say it's worth it vs Gen V?

    So, at the end of the day, what was your impression of the hybrid pads? Still not quite as good as the auteurs? Or just different?

    Do the auteur pads have that nice subby sub bass tho?? I don't often pad roll since it triggers my audio nervosa; but I added the hybrids based on the fact that it sounded like it added extra low end on top of keeping a nice, wide and 3D presentation. Do you find the hybrids at least fill...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Wow. I'm truly impressed. This is little amp is performing so incredibly amazingly! I was just listening to "Abracadabra" by the Steve Miller band and I don't think I've ever heard such holographic and lush sound come out of my CTH!! Massdrop should really consider making a version of this amp...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    So @dpump was right and it was indeed the adaptor that was amiss. Garage1217 was amazing though and replaced my adaptor for an appropriate one almost immediately. I could not be more impressed with his customer service! Listening to an RCA VT-231 grey bottle now, and it makes the amp sound...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Has anyone by any chance tried a 6SL7 or 6SU7GTY?? I've heard great things about the latter and, I may be wrong, but it seems to me like the 6SU7GTY operates within the recommended specs of the CTH.

    Thanks for your responses Torq! I did indeed try pad swapping but if I’m honest I just don’t quite enjoy the presentation/fequency response of the VO with the Verite pads as much as I like them with the universe pads. I found that the soundstage collapsed and the “3D” effect of the universe pads...

    Lol, yeah, the Universe pads are indeed the default pads for the Verite Open! I was confused by that in the beginning too lol.

    They really do! I always try and give the Verite pads a fair shake but the presentation of the Universe pads is just so incredibly addicting that I can't seem to switch for longer than a few hours! (I feel that way about most ZMF dynamics and their default pads tho. I feel like Zach has been...

    Possibly! I would sure love to hear them off of a better pairing for them; because what i’ve heard in the past was 100% not to my liking. :T It’s a shame these boutique headphones are so hard/expensive to audition...

    I’m sure it is! Whenever I’ve had the pleasure to test it though it’s always come off as very thin and boring for my tastes. It’s undoubtedly resolving but just uninteresting. That’s very much my opinion though! Perhaps it would change if I could test one out for a month or so but at the cost of...

    Wow! Now THAT'S praise! That said, I don't think I'll ever get rid of my Auteurs... The vocals produced by the bio-cellulose drivers are just absolute magic to me.

    I wish it weren't true myself homies; but it's right here: EDIT: Why does head-fi break all my image links?! Personally, I'm hoping the VC is a nice middle point between the VO and the Atticus in terms of experience!

    Well, the VO took about 100 hrs to open up; but the noticeable difference came after 150hrs. After that it slowly settled over the next 150hrs into the Verite I know and love now and hasn’t changed much since! Also, I’m noticing Zach updated the shipping times to Nov/Dec and Dec/Jan for the VC...

    Zach’s welcome to correct me if I’m under the wrong impression but I’d assume since it says “ships in October/November” at the bottom of the page that it would be the normal wait time. He might have the cups cut and ready but not assembled or something.

    Not for nothing, but perhaps it might help if you could add impressions/comparisons to more mainstream gear in your product description? That DAC in particular (I'm assuming we're talking about the vinshine) is super unknown and hard to find reviews for and it's hard to say how it compares to...

    Thanks, it sounds very promising! I'm definitely gonna have to give it some thought! Btw, I notice that you once had a mainline! How would you say this compares? I saw you posted some brief impressions in the TU-8600 thread but I would love to hear more about how they compare (especially with...

    Oof, very tempting! But I'm not really a speaker man and in-depth reviews for this unit with headphones are a little hard to come by.... Would sure love to know how it compares to other similarly priced amps though!

    Btw Monster, what would you say are better complements? the Auteur + VC or the VC + VO??

    That's strange. The VO used to be listed as 99db/mw on the ZMF website same as the VC... I wonder if only the newer VOs are less sensitive or if it was always just mislabeled?

    Honestly, you might find that the two are different enough to keep the both of them! I have teak auteurs, so they might be a little less warm than yours but they’re so completely different in presentation that I find myself listening to the two almost equally!

    I hate to be a nag but can someone preeetty pleeease give me some impressions of the VC in comparisons to the Atticus?? I use the atticus as my office hp for listening while working. I draw for a living so what I need from it is a visceral, emotional and fun experience. The atticus is great at...
