    ChiUniFi 7.5 - November 2, 2013

    Great review!   I didn't spent long on the  lyr/bifrost but my initial feeling was my gungnir/mjolnir were no better than them. The Lyr used special tubes that you can tell from outside.   I really got dazzled at the Realizer, especially with 5.1 recording. AMAZING! And that doesn't pair...

    Chi-Uni-Fi 7.5 - Chicago Area Meet - Nov 2nd

    There's good news and bad news.   Good news is I received the gungnir so the gungnir/mjolnir stack is available.    Bad news is I'll lend my LCD2 to my friend and thus won't be able to bring it in the meet.    So do you guys still want me to bring the Schiit combo?

    Schiit Asguard 1

    HD 650

    Hi,   I am selling a pair of HD 650. I bought them on Aug 15 from another headfier and put ~80 hrs use. It's about 10 months old in total. I am selling them because I am moving to LCD 2.   I can take care of the shipping to US through USPS. For other countries I have to ask for additional...

    schiit gungnir(with USB) + Mjolnir combo

    Hi everyone,   I heard a lot of good stuff about this combo and want to give it a try. Buying a second hand is apparently a more economical way. I prefer them less than 1 year old. I'll pay all paypal fees and shipping.    If you have either one of these and want to sell please...

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    man you are rich! Without the chance of actually listening to them, I have to give it some serious thoughts before spending $1000+. don't know why Schiit doesn't have any dealer in big cities like Chicago.      There's definitely no problem in terms of powering.  I believe pdrm360's point...

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    I used LCD-2 as the headphone and,   1. Dragonfly alone 2. Dragonfly + Asguard amp 3. Dragonfly + Hifiman EF5 Tube amp   The difference is minimum. I doubt if my ears are insensitive.

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    Quote: I followed your instruction and pair it with an Asguard amp. The SQ is much better! Still I don't understand why setting my system volume to 100% would disable the amp part of dragonfly.

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    Quote: The reason to use another amp is that the amp inside DF is not good enough to drive HD 650 well.

    AudioQuest Dragonfly Review : Affordable, Outstanding, Tiny DAC / Amp

    Quote: Please bear with me here... In my understanding the amp I use must have a volume control to offset part of the 100% system volume. What if I don't use 100% system volume, but still connect the DF with an external amp, and then my headphone? Will the DF still serve only as a DAC, or...

    Quote: Thanks for the prompt reply man. I know there's cable like that to connect dragonfly and your awesome burson, but I am not sure how you can use only the DAC of the DF --- Is that because of the order?    If it goes this way,  Computer --> Dragonfly --> Burson -->headphone, then...

    How do you use its DAC part(not the amp) separately?
