    Great plan. You could go with a big tube or class A amp for more warmth.

    Yes, a Valhalla 2 would work wonders!

    Yeah, I've been kicking around the idea of an Asgard as my next HP amp. Valhalla would be great except I don't want to invest time and money in getting 4 matched tubes. One tube via saga or vali is more to my liking.

    A Valhalla did not work for me in Florida because it was too hot.

    I'm wondering if @Jason Stoddard has considered adding a HP out to the Aegir, taking it from the main speaker output a la Ragnarok. Low enough wattage on Aegir, it would be as safe as doing it on Ragnarok right?

    That would be another toasty amp, double your pleasure too.

    Might be a bit like hunting squirrels with a howitzer...?

    What was wrong with your Vidar?

    True but it sounds like fun . :fearful:

    Emotiva does this with the A-100.
    They put a jumper there to keep you from melting your headphones in case you're not aware of the full power that it will give you.

    I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to reply in fear of scaring certain members...

    However I do agree that it would be an interesting experiment with the Aegir that is, not the more fun one...

    I have a vidar in a cold room... It's still a cold room :) I'm going to have to play my music much louder. Class A is the way to go.

    Yeah probably, but consider this, Ragnarok does 60wpc Into 8 ohm, and 1.7 wpc into 300

    The aegir being previewed does 20 wpc into 8 ohms. If it's similar math you are talking 0.56 to 0.6 wpc or so into 300 ohms for Aegir. I have read about folks using Vidar has a headphone amp, which is crazy. This is considerably less power then Vidar or Ragnarok
