    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I'm thinking of upgrading Asgard 2 -> Jotunheim (only amp). I know this has been discussed earlier but is there a consensus whether Mojo -> Jot is a good combo or not? vs e.g. a Schiit Multibit DAC paired with Jot?

    Focal Elear - Impressions Thread

    Finally received the Elears after waiting for over a month  Straight out of the box these sound really good. The first I noticed was the bass, wow, it extends really nicely for a open hp. For the haters, I'm gonna burn these in by listening to them

    Upgrading desktop amp/preamp from Asgard 2

    Hi,   I've been using the Chord Mojo and Schiit Asgard 2 for quite a while now to run my hps (Alpha prime, beyer t90 (sold)) and also as a preamp for active monitors (JBL lsr 308). I have Elears also on the way, and they should be arriving next week. The only "issue" I have with the current...

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Love the synergy with Mojo -> Asgard 2 -> AP. Actually quite a lot more than using the Mojo solely. I'm not an audiophile but I feel that the A2 just adds some magic to the low end that is missing with the Mojo .    @TsKen Hope you enjoy your APs!

    Beyerdynamic T90 Discussion and Support Thread

    I really think everybody who thinks that the T90 sounds too "bright" should first try out the HM5 velour pads before selling or buying a new amp etc. I've been using these pads for a couple months now and I have no intentions on going back to the stock ones. Now I can really appreciate how these...

    My next pair of mid to high end full headphones - pick for me!

    How about the Alpha Prime? The seal is really good, have a pretty neutral signature and you can get those at a reasonable price.

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    Thanks for the replies!   Quote: Wow..  I really didn't think that the PM-3s could replace the APs but it's interesting to hear that you prefer them over the APs.   My plan is to get a pair of hps that are solely used as portables so the PM-3 are starting to sound like a very good...

    Oppo PM-3 : The Portable Planar - Impressions

    Has anyone compared the PM-3s to the Alpha Primes? I really enjoy the APs but they are "a bit" too bulky to be used as portable hps...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Thanks for the response. I actually read the FAQ and I think it said that this "issue" shouldn't arise when charging via laptop. I think I'll try another laptop when I get a chance..   p.s. maybe got a bit too carried away with mojo today/yesterday as it is 6am now and have to get up at 8..

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I received my mojo today and I'm loving how much it improves the SQ over the Dragonfly v1.2.   The only thing that is a bit worrying is that I can also hear a hissing sound when charging...  It isn't very loud but it's audible if you listen closely. I tried switching different cables, tried...

    Something to power my alpha primes

    I'm sorry I don't know whether you can "bypass" the amp of the o2/odac combo and use it as a standalone dac . You will probably get an answer to that question easily as it is a very popular amp/dac here in Head-Fi.

    Something to power my alpha primes

     The Schiit Asgard 2 can power the APs really nicely and doesn't cost that much and sounds awesome. I like to listen to music (electronic & metal mostly) at pretty high volume and have the volume knob at about 12PM.

    Beyerdynamic T90 Discussion and Support Thread

    I faced this same(?) issue with my first pair of T90s. For me it happened only when playing bass-heavy tracks so I figured the cause was a hair or something stuck to the driver. After receiving a new pair (from Thomann) I haven't had this issue anymore.. so I'm thinking that maybe this could be...

    I also changed the stock pads to Brainwavz HM5 velours (normal, not angled). First impression are quite positive. Definitely gonna stick with these for the time being

    Thanks reddog. Haha, yes this sure isn't the cheapest hobby out there . Can't wait for my APs to arrive. Read so many good reviews about them.

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Glad to hear! Just placed my order for the AP with DUM cables. Hopefully the Schiit Asgard 2 will drive them properly. It does a wonderful job with the T90.. At some point I will be updating my DAC from AQ df v1.2 to Bifrost MB.

    Thanks for the reply! Nice to see that you are liking your primes. I also live in Europe so doing any kind of A / B testing isn't going to be possible.

    MrSpeakers Alpha PRIME: Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I'm looking for a new pair of closed back phones and am leaning towards the primes (with DUM cable) as they are on sale at the moment. I'll be using them solely at home so the "harsh" looks don't matter that much. As for my own preferences, I love everything about the T90 but need to get closed...

    Schiit Owners Unite

    Just received my first desktop amp, the Asgard 2. My first impressions are that it sounds great with Dragonfly v1.2 & T90. It is a clear leap forward from using the df as DAC/amp.
