    Yes the Rag drives the HD800's superbly. Unfortunately for the Rag so does my M6 :)

    There's no unfortunately. It's a matter of individual preference.

    As a matter of interest, I also feel my newly acquired Primalunar Dialogue Premium HP stereo integrated tube amp with a switchable headphone amp makes HD800 sound better.

    i would of never have thought that SS amp would be a match to the 800's due to the alleged brightness people say about them always tube was the go!.
    I must be the only person that hasn't tried the 800's no matter what headphone i have had i still think about them and wonder what they are like! i have had the 700's , he-6 and now elear but never could afford the Rag at the price till now and now ! ponder what might have been with the He-6 combo with Rag lol

    Always take with a big grain of salt what others say. Try HD800 with Yggy and Rggy. It's not a high pitch shela as they make it out to be.

    I much prefer ZMF Eikon and Atticus and even LCD-2f on Yggy and Rggy now than HD800 though. Of course the Primaluna is a different diva. It makes all those headphones sound amazing.

    I am considering the Abyss for my Yggy/Rag set up and was wondering how your experience was... I too have the Utopia paired currently and am very happy with. I realize your post was a while ago. Do you have the new Abyss or the previous model? Thank you.

    Has anyone every replaced the volume knob on their Ragnarok? The screw that holds mine on has stripped from me having to re tighten it frequently. I've contacted Schiit about it and am wait on a response, but just in case I have to replace it myself I'm looking for a model and part number , or proper dimensions to get a replacement elsewhere.

    My Rag is almost new. There is no screw on the volume knob and the knob is held securely. It's turning smoothly with the usual clicks. Maybe they dispensed with the screw?

    Interesting, I wonder how yours in being held on. Because without the screw mine just spins freely and doesn't turn the actual potentiometer. Maybe its in there ,but you just can't see it, it requires a small allen wrench to adjust it.
    I've looking at a couple on ebay and amazon, but I don't know if they are the correct size. Still waiting on a response from Schiit.

    Had another look. You may be right. If there's a screw it's very deep inside and doesn't look like a screw to me. As you said, it would need a allen key to adjust it. I wouldn't change the knob with an after market one. The original knob looks nice. Let's hope Schiit gets back to you soon.

    I still love this amp very much. Much of my listening now is with Yggdrasil > Ragnarok > Eikon.

    It is a very small allen (hex) set screw and it may be set using thread locker. It is rather stubborn.

    I got a reply from Schiit, a replacement volume knob can be ordered for $15 plus shipping. I haven't heard anyone else experiencing the same issue, so I'm hoping this is a isolated indecent where my screw didn't have proper threading and so kept coming loose.
     
  12. UntilThen
    As Johnjen said, you could use thread locker on the screw. It will set in 10 secs.

    Google Loctite. Amazon sells it. It's like super glue for metal screws. It seals well but you can still unscrew it.

    You want the blue stuff. It's removable. Don't get the red high strength stuff. It's semi-permanent.
     
  14. UntilThen
    Correct. Get the blue not the red. :)
     
  15. TJ Max
    unfortunately the screw on mine is stuck in the knob. I can't unscrew it out to apply any glue.
