Gumby is great, more analog than its big brother. On paper the Mjolnir 2 seems like a great amp. I needed the ability to drive speakers so I ended up with the Ragnarok - but I've always envied the tube option (oh yeah no longer) of the M-nir. It's got the power even for an HE-6. Enjoy!
Gungnir MB A2 is more neutral than even the Yggdrasil A2. I'd go for Schiit Bifrost 2 if you want to keep Gungnir MB A1's tonality

I was searching and maybe missed it but has anyone compared the Mjolnir 1 & 2 for solid state operation side by side and provided impressions?

Understand the 2 provides options to tube roll. After doing a lot of various tube rolling when I was mostly 2 channel I’d like to keep to just solid state for now so weighing if I should save the extra coin by going v 1 if possible.

I've heard similar comments. I have a Gumby A1, with the board installed. I'm getting buried with it probably.

I just purchased a Modi 3 to go with my Asgard 1, and I must say I'm glad to have gotten more Schiit. Lol. To me it sounds pretty good. I have my computer feeding it with average files, nothing extra high resolution or anything crazy, but it's still a cool little DAC. And the aesthetics are nice. I'm sure some of you guys have them. I also tried the toslink in too and did some comparisons to USB, however I didn't notice any real difference. Both sounded quite nice.

I did an A/B comparison of the same song in lossless from my mac through the usb connection and the CD playing on the OPPO 203 outputting via coax and I really did not hear a difference that might be in part do to my age and limitations of my hearing or my headphones.

That stand looks so heavy, man. Nice stack and cans, and all, but I'm wincing a little here.

Ahh, okay. You had me worried there for a while!
