    Excellent... I was thinking about trying some very good coloured amp myself, "just for fun". Lyr seems to be a good option but I do not want to mess with tubes honestly. Asgard 2 looks nice with the gain switch and preamp section. From the technical point of view, it does not seem to compete with more advanced amps but if it sounds enjoyable, it could be a good alternative for the money!

    Should be interest.... For me at least.

    Should have tried the Magni with another Dac? I'm hearing very positive things with my few different sources. No better or worse than the original Asgard.

    I second LugBug, the Magni is super transparant and it's easy to tell sources apart. Nevertheless, I'm probably upgrading to an Asgard 2 as well. ^_^ My inner Head-Fi'er

    Tried it with my Bifrost.... better... but then the stack wasn't  "A Stack".......  gotta have aesthetics.... and I'd have to flip the Modi for a Bifrost...  Sooooo  I flipped both of them.
     
    I made a couple of prior posts..... Im not saying it's a bad kit.  It just wasn't for me.  Likely the LCD2's

    I've liked this Magni more than my old Asgard, especially with the HD-650 and the Q701 (had the K702 back then though). My source wasn't as good back then so it's hardly fair. Unfortunately I still get lots of cracking and weird stuff going on in the low bass with my Magni and specific cables. Makes no sense to me. Only occurs on a 38ohm headphone.
     
    I do wonder if the ODAC is better or worse (sounding) than the Modi. It might be interesting to try.
     
    If someone told me the Lyr or Asgard 2 improved my $50 DJ100 by about 3-5% I'd go out and buy it immediately [​IMG]
    Yep, i'm the only one crazy enough to buy a $400 amp for a $50 headphone!
     
    Not like I have money to spend, but maybe soon.

    Hi, I have a very important question regarding the Magni.  Mine arrived today, and I noticed on the front cover of the owner's manual that I received a random number.  Is it truly random, or did we all get the same one? Mine is 1001001111.

    mine is has that number too

    It's binary.

    Well, it could be binary.  But that doesn't necessarily mean it is.

    It's not binary because it's not divisible by 8.

    Totally understand. I've got the Magni sitting next to my Rdac and they look like they were made for each other :) Also, I agree about the matching it with the LCD2's, to me it sounds realy good but the gain is just too high. I, like others have had to lower my MP volume and I don't like doing that if it can be helped.

    To be fair, I will also be looking at that amp too. Now that we have a UK supplier :D
    Quote:
    The scalability of most headphones is far more than amps/dacs in my opinion. So it makes sense to me to have a more expensive amp/source than the actual headphone. It's just the nature of this hobby that we put all of the emphasis on the headphones first... Because they are the status symbol [​IMG] For instance a K702 driven by a high end amp sounds ****marvelous, but the same hp with a cheap cmoy sounds... well, not so good.

    Blarg, my brand new Magni just decided to quit on me after a day.  It sounded so nice too.  Has anyone else had this problem?
     
    Edit: For clarification, I was using it for about 8 hours yesterday, and then when I tried turning it on this morning I got nothing.  I tried several different wall outlets with the wall wart that came with it.
