    Quite a bit of improved SQ by going to the GMB, IMO.  And, as detailed by MattTCG above.
    My progression was UberBi - Gungnir - GMB.  Every step was an improvement.

    Sorry - wrong thread.

    Looking forward to reading your impressions of the Mj2 compared to the Ragnarok.

    I regret letting my Rok go. Loved its smoothness and amazing transparency. No doubt the Mj2 will be a compromise, it's just a question of how much of a downgrade it will be.

    Having just bought a new car and saving up for a house cures the impulse buying urge, otherwise I'd have pulled the trigger on another Rok and the Gumby. Hoping to slum it with my NAD M51 and Mj2 for a bit.

    Very little fanfare surrounding the Mj2. Its reveal was drowned out by the praise over the Gumby and the hype over the Ether C. And people still cling to their negative impressions of mismatched Mjolnir rigs, overlooking the fact that the Mj2 is a different beast and early impressions that the LISST run Mj2 is still quite an improvement over the original.

    I don't expect the Mj2 to match it with the megabuck EC, Cavalli amps, or even Schiit's own statement Ragnarok. I do expect it to be in the upper echelons of its price bracket though. There are very few balanced options at this price point if you want glowing glass on top of your stack.

    Great - looking forward to your comparison to the Lyr with those sweet '60 Ulm Tele's and the HE1000's.

    Sure I will compare the Ragnarock to the MJ2, with tubes and LISST. I will use NOS Telefunken E88CC platinum tubes.

    Can I ask where you got the telefunkens? Upscale Audio?

    Okay, I'll bite which Russians. And what makes them better than the telefunkens (with the mjo2). 
  12. Poimandres
    Which telefunkens work with the M2?
