    Schiit Mjolnir Vs Little Dot MK6 VI+

    I'm investigating moving up to balanced cables on some of my cans and as the egg must come before the chicken I am also trying to find an amp in the $1000.00 range to accommodate balanced outputs. I'll admit to being a Schiit 'fanboy' but I really like the fact that the Little Dot has balanced...

    Which would you choose?

    Looking for an amp/DAC setup that is versatile for most headphones (high impedance driver and planars) and I could use for many many years. For now the headphone I use is the Alpha Dog, HD800 on shipping. Next buy at the end of the year will be HE-6 or LCD-3. Budget max 1500 dollars, Burson...

    Is Schiit Customer Service Schiit?

    Last Friday (5th October) I got in contact with Schiit to check on the possibility of shipping a Lyr amplifier to the UK as I could potentially save a decent amount of money doing it this way.   I got a short and curt response from someone called Jason saying    'After shipping and...

    Burson Conductor vs Schiit Mjolnir + Gungnir

    Hi guys, my first post on Head-Fi here. Recently bought a Hifiman HE-500 and was thinking of investing into either the Burson Conductor or the Schiit Mjolnir/Gungnir combo.    Was wondering which would you guys recommend and why? (but bearing in mind that in the future I'll probably upgrade...

    Schiit Mjolnir question.

    How would one use a pair of HD558 with this amp considering it only has a single 4 pin and dual 3 pin XLR outputs?

    How does the schiit mjolner sound as a preamp, help me out

    I have read a thousand comments about the mjolner as a headphone amp but have not seen any mention of how it sounds as a preamp. I have audeze lcd 2 v2s and it looks to be ideally suited as a amp for them but I also intend to use it as a preamp for my emotiva airmotiv 5s on my computer desk top...

    RFI and hum with Schiit Mjolinir and AK240 Balanced

    I recently purchased an AK240 and a Schlit Mjolnir amp that are connected via Moon Audio balanced cables (2.5mm TRRS to dual XLRs) and auditioned via Audeze LCD-3 (Moon V3 cables).  I immediately became aware of RFI and what appeared to be a ground hum when the volume control was advanced beyond...

    Hey guys,   Anyone care to lend their opinion on these two configuration, they cost about the same.  I have Audeze LCD2 and Beyerdynamic DT880 250Ohm at the moment, and listens to vocal alot, with some classical in the mix.  Also I enjoy watching movies with the LCD2.  I want an amp/dac combo...

    Obtained desired dac/amp/headphone chain, am CLUELESS about sound settings, audio players, bit-perfect playback, etc. Please help!

    I have an Audeze LCD-2.2 that I'm running with a fully balanced Mjolnir/Gungnir stack (usb 2.0), using iTunes, (mostly 256/320 files, a few 96/24) with Windows 7 (AMD/Realtek). As good as the sound is with this setup, I feel like I'm still losing out on significant SQ because I am largely...

    Beyer T1 vs Audeze LCD 2.2?

    What would the general consensus be on these two fine phones? Currently I have the Beyer DT990/600 and a Headroom micro amp/dac which is just ok but definitely tons of room for improvement. I feel like these cans are just under-powered and really want to upgrade to one of the above headphones...

    How would I plug normal headphones into a schiit mjolnir

    I am looking for an end game setup but I don't even know how I would plug my headphones into something like that. I have an hd598 and a dt770 and I know those aren't on the same level that the amp is but I would like to invest in an amp now and high end headphones later. So I was wondering if...

    AMP/DAC for LCD-2

    Hello All,   I'm planning on picking up an LCD-2 soon but was wondering what would a good AMP/DAC Combo be for it <$1000.  I currently have the Schiit Magni/Modi but heard that may not be enough to power it. Would Bifrost/Asgard, Valhalla or Lyr be a good match? Or would you reccommend...

    Mjolnir vs WA22

    Let me hear your opinions. I haven't heard either, but must go with either option. I will be using either HD800 or Beyer T1. I used to own LCD-2 but they were too uncomfortable for my liking and Soundearphones is exchanging them for either the T1 at a equal trade or the HD800 for $100-$200. Let...
