Fixed my Schiit stack issue last night, damn pets love USB cables. Found an ugly spot, replaced it and grainy/pop went away. However, with the stack fixed, when comparing the AD's using the WA6-SE vs the Asgard 2, it's a no brainer for me to determine which one I prefer. Maybe the Asgard 2 will open up a bit more as the AD's get used and broken in, but I prefer the sound of the Asgard 2 with the P7's over the AD's. The P7's have kind of a bass hump which seems to smooth out a bit with the Asgard 2. Both are using Bifrost Uber's for DAC's through Gen2 USB, so only difference is the amp itself at this point. Back-end cabling is all the same, using StraightWire interconnects or PYST (which is StraightWire) for really short runs. The Asgard 2 to my ears, has a clumped together sound stage and lacks brightness for my personal tastes with the AD's, which are very neutral. They don't sound bad by any means and I could still sit and listen to them if I wanted to listen to music. Maybe others have better luck with their's and enjoy the sound from the Asgard 2, hope they do, just not my cup of tea.
