Looking into purchasing the Bifrost 4490 for myself.
I'm currently using the Valhalla 2 and Modi 2 (non-uber), paired with Sennheiser HD800.
I'm having a hard time finding if the upgrade is worth it. Some say that the Bifrost will have small differences, while some say it's a larger upgrade than going from the Vali to the Valhalla 2.
Not sure what to do.
Since you have a non-uber Modi 2, the Bifrost 4490 is essentially a significant upgrade. When I say significant upgrade, I mean on a small scale but very well worth it if you have the money to spare. I would say go for it, even more so since you have HD800s. If you can't hear a difference, like then one guy on here said, then your ears just aren't good enough or you haven't listened to the pre-upgrade long enough for your brain to memorize the details.
