MJOLNIR 2!  I hope they keep the same enclosure as mjolnir.  Do you think they will add speaker capability to it?

  Found nothing about a "Mjolnir 2" on the website.

 
This will be an unpopular opinion, but with how the Raganrok was handled, I think he's going to be pretty tight fisted until he's almost ready to release the thing in it's final form.

I agree the mjolnir 2 will lot be announced until it's ready. I hope it's ready at RMAF, but it could be more towards the Holliday season.

I have read some posts about LCD XC + Schiit Mjolnir being bright. Well I just got the Mj few days back & it pairs very well with the XC. I do not detect any brightness, infact the XC treble is perfect for me now (just for people to know where I am coming from - I love the HD 800 & T1 treble and find the LCD 3's a bit dark). Very dynamic sound with decent sound stage, the WA22 will give  a better sound stage but I prefer the treble on the MJ. Am using a Yulong bal Dac.

I would look at MrSpeakers Alpha Dogs for a reasonably priced set of can. The Alpha dogs sound great as well as isolate you from outside distractions.

 
I just picked up a pair of the Alpha Dogs. They do not come close to the sound stage of the LCD 2's unless I really EQ the heck out of them through JRiver. Then, they sound really good. If you aren't EQ'ing I wouldn't suggest these at all
 
 
The balanced AKG K545's I picked up sound much better than the Alpha Dogs IMHO on the Schitt without much tweaking but the Alpha Dogs are super comfy!
 
What to do....just listed the Alpha Dogs for sale but they are growing on me :) Any other suggestions for closed cans?

We all hear differently, it seems.  I find the Alpha Dog to be an excellent complement to my LCD2.2 through the Mjolnir.

I am sorry the alpha dogs did not workout for you, we all hear differently. I shall continue to recommend the alpha dogs to people and I feel the alpha dogs compliment great open backed headphones such as the HE-560's, 400i's, or audeeze's. My next to purchases will be the Ragnarok and a gungnir dac (will get Yggdrasil sometime too), I just must he the AD'S on a balanced system. I truly hope your balanced akg m545's, through your fantastic schiit combo, puts a smile on your face as you jam out.
