    I have an HRT MusicStreamer II+ and don't apply any equalizers or effects. I don't understand people who say they have to stop at 7 o'clock. 7 o'clock is barely a nudge on the pot. We are considering 12 o'clock as the top of the pot, aren't we? And 1-2 o'clock would be top-right.

    I haven't tried Magni, to be honest... I am just comparing to my O2/ODAC where I barely pass 10 o'clock position with LCD-2/HD800 on 1x gain. [​IMG]

    The HE500's are a little harder to drive then the LCD2's but even so, if your computer is on full volume then thats gonna be pretty loud bro..!
     
    I can handle loud music, played in bands for a very long time. But the Magni at 12 oclock is 'Motorhead at Hammersmith' dude!  [​IMG]

    Ya? It doesn't seem loud to me. 10 o'clock is quieter listening for me.

    So you don't use any VST plugin, replaygain or other DSP, have all the software volume controls on 100%, use HRT Music Streamer II+ with 2.25vrms output voltage (in comparison to 2vrms of ODAC) and still get past 12 o'clock with Magni on 5x gain? o_O
     
    There must be something I overlooked...

    Maybe I'm growing deaf? I listened to a lot of Godflesh and punk rock in the early '90s.

    What?! Could you speak up, sir?

    I listen around 1 o'clock .. but I have -12 dB attenuators on mine.

    Using the magni and modi I get to 12 olcock on my hd600's with certain tracks. It is pretty damn loud at that level though, but people not being able to get passed 7 olcock sounds crazy to me too, even my hd25iis can get to 10-11 before I'd consider it much too loud.

    Many headphone produce over 100 dB SPL with just 1 mW of power. Assuming it's 100 dB SPL @ 1 mW and that the average RMS amplitude of your music is -15 dB you're still at an imo loud 85 dB SPL.
     
    Into 32 ohms the corresponding volume position would be around 7:30, into 300 ohms about 9:30.
     
    If you're listening to classical music you might have to turn up the volume more, but if you're listening to dynamically compressed stuff you will run into permanent hearing damage.

    Streetcleaner is pretty raw, but I got into 'Pure' pretty hard.  I still think that 'Spite' and 'Mothra' are defining songs for them.  Oddly, my fave on 'Pure' was 'Baby Blue Eyes'.

    I got some new Schiit!
     
    My Magni arrived today!

    After a couple of hours of listening to the Magni hooked up to my Squeezebox and Mad Dogs I can say that the major difference is that the sound is more "complete" as compared to driving the Mad Dogs from the Squeezebox. The bass is more solid and everything just seems stronger. I usually listen at moderate volumes and with the Magni I am finding that the volume knob is between 9 and 10. I have the Squeezebox internal volume set at 100%
     
    So far, so great! I have noticed a big improvement in the sound. The Magni is well-built and good looking. I plan on doing a lot more listening over the next week or so and I will probably post a proper review at that point.

    Ordered a Magni and it should be here next week :D Stoked. Even if it doesn't sound much different (I hope it will) it will be nice to have an amp I don't need to charge anyway. thanks for the reply too

    Is it typical for an order to be stuck in pending for 3 business days? Ordered Wednesday night.
