    The one in France is Brittany..

    The difference between Britain and Great Britain is one starts with a "B" and the other a "G".. :)

    Technically though there is this.... "Here's where things get really confusing: Although commonly used as a colloquial shorthand for the UK, Britain is also a political entity that doesn't really exist anymore. We've established that Great Britain is the name of the island containing England, Scotland, and Wales, but "Britain" is really an archaic term for the Roman territory of Britannia, also called Britannia Major to distinguish it from Britannia Minor (the area of France now called Brittany). Scotland was never conquered by the Romans, so Britain—if you're being pedantic—refers only to England and Wales."

    Any photos of how the internal LED looks? Thanks

    It's just a small led light on the board inside the unit, you can see it through the vent from the top of the amp.

    Yep, read that. I was wondering if anyone had a pic in a dimly light room. Does the top give off any glow that might light up the shelf above it or the ceiling?

    Looking forward to A3 vs THX 789 impressions

    I'll take one tonight.
    It is just a single, fairly dim white LED that illuminates through most of the vent holes on the top. It's not bright enough to cause any shine-through that would hit the ceiling and be distracting.
    One strange thing about it is that when you switch the Asgard 3 off, instead of the LED just instantly turning off like you would expect, it stays on and then veeeery slooooowly fades out, like its on a dimmer or something. Weird.

    Yeah, me too.

    I heard the 789 at a meet once and thought it sounded a lot like the Jotenheim I once owned.

    I directly compared it to my Lyr 2 I had there (from the same DAC) and while I thought the 789 was slightly more resolving, it came at the cost of sounding a little too analytical for me, especially because it would be something that I would be listening to all the time.

    But if you are a recording engineer and are looking for an amp that you can use to analyse every little detail going on in a mix, the Jotenheim or the THX 789 (and also the just announced Monoprice 887 amp) are all excellent choices for that.

    Sacre bleu:ksc75smile: oui monsieur. my doubt was because in italian Bretagna is a region of France and Gran Bretagna is UK. In portuguese is pratically the same Bretanha in France and Grã Bretanha Uk. So i don´t know the word Brittany. Sorry for the O.T.

    789 is just another example of the ZEOS hype train. my starving student amp only cost $145 to make and it DESTROYS 789. lol it's so sad it makes me want to cry. Zeos is just a paid shill, it's a shame he has ripple effects in this community. money always corrupts though, so yeah.

    Greetings ..

    I'm planning to give my mobi3/magni3 to my son for his dorm use. My next choice is another Schiit :ksc75smile: - Asgard 3. I'll be buying with the DAC as an extra. I've a DT880 Pro (250 ohm) and a ATH-M50x. Which is the phone for the Asgard 3? Do I need a special USB cable?

    Advice highly appreciated.
