    I've gone from all solid state to all tube - and for a good period of time have settle in between with hybrids.  Power tubes can sound excellent - but to tighten the bass they need lot's of global feedback.  And power tube do not last nearly as long as small signal tubes like the 6922 - so for the power section I really like class A mosfets.

    Arg I think I am a hopeless Audiophile addict, I just ordered a Mjolnir 2. After this order, I shall retire my cards to a bank deposit box. That is the last time I do shots of chartreuse and Irish whiskey. My uncle is a evil man lol. I have not been that ripped in years lol. I wil write up impressions once the amp arrives this Tuesday.:D

    Probably not. I've turned it on and off while wearing headphones and the volume up and haven't noticed barely any click in the headphones or anything. I believe it includes a muting circuit.

    I surprised not to see more impressions and comparisons here already. Yeah, I know it's early. But I must know...
    *how does the mjo 2 compare to lyr 2?
    *how does mjo 2 pair with the big hitter cans? Ether, Audeze, hd800 etc...

    Loving it with my ETHER.

    Um...can you put that in perspective a bit? Compared to what? No disrespect intended. [​IMG]

    I will try to answer some of these questions, when the Mjolnir 2' shows up. Although I wish I had a HD 800, or a audeze to play with.

    Lol, I will say to date the M2 and ETHER is the best setup I have heard. Will likely be my end game setup.

    JRiver>Wyrd>Modi2Uber>Mojilnir 2>ETHER

    using pyst usb cables from PC to Wyrd and Wyrd to Modi and blue jeans rca cables from Modi2U to Mojilnir 2.

    The only thing that may change will be adding a Gungnir MB. I'm not certain how much improvement I would notice going from Modi2U to Gungnir MB.

    I would like to hear from anyone who has both feeding a M2 to determine if the diminishing returns is worthwhile. The stackability will be a big plus. The Wyrd/Modi stack is stacked upon the M2's front left corner, not exactly aesthetically pleasing.

    Even going from the original Gungnir to the MB was an appreciable and IMO significant improvement. Subtle detail pops out from a larger sound stage. Bass is super tight and bumpin' nicely. In a word, the upgrade to MB gives a more "analogue" sound.

    I used my Modi2U with my M2 for a week before my upgraded Gungnir came back from Schiit. While the Modi2U sounds fantastic with Mjolnir 2, the Gungnir MB is a totally different level. You will notice the difference.
  14. Poimandres
    Well there goes a few more c notes. What the hell, at least it will stack nicely under the M2.
  15. zabzaf

    In moving from Uberfrost to Gungnir and eventually to Gungnir multibit feeding my newly acquired M2, it's an enormous difference. There's a spacious, wide stereo image created by a fully balanced setup that IMO cannot be created by a SE configuration at these price points.

    I do feel for your wallet...
