So still nobody here willing to comment on how Ragnarok 2 sounds?
More people must have had a chance to listen to it by now.
The only remarks are very carefull statements about showconditions etc, but it has been sitting at the Shiitr for a while right?

And being able to order it would be nice, too. :ksc75smile:

I am pretty sure it was a joke link and not meant to be taken seriously.

I got redirected to DNR and wondered. I think you caught me looking too closely at the trees to notice the forest.

Rarely, to be taken seriously, personally :ksc75smile::L3000:

This is good news! I want something that sounds like Saga with LISST (or better), but is balanced, and does not have tube worries (one should not run Freya without tubes, but LISST tubes are not available anymore).
I want a balanced Saga with a tube gain stage (two 6SN7) so Saga can run monoblocks and includes gain in addition to the passive and tube buffer unity gain stages.

For the longest time I wanted a simple and cheap balanced vol control (SYS eqv; to run from my yggy 2 to XPA 2). Please.

That reminds me of another controversial topic. How much do u think the potentiometer in vol control matter in sound quality? I seem to read a lot about that. Benchmark claims they have prob made the best pre amp vol control stripping from HPA4. But it costs 3000 bucks.

For what it's worth, my best experience with Magni 3 was with the volume turned to max to bypass the pot, and I controlled the volume with saga.
