  1. Just switched from HD800s to Utopia on the mini susy dynalo and while the soundstage is different I would definitely not call it small or a bother at all to me. I did notice the smaller stage when i first had the headphones but i don't anymore, not sure what changed.
  2. He's the guy who does the SD mod.
  3. Wait to you hear them on a better amp. I think that's the amp I first heard them on and I was pretty underwhelmed. Then on the L-2 it was a whole different ball game.
  4. I have an ES-2 which does work and has been modified but not in the manner presented here. The thing is it just sits unused. I even offered it to someone for free pickup and he never came.
  5. Thanks for the thoughts sorrodje. Makes me want to redo the behemouth Single Power ES-2 I have in the srx manner, so it actually works.
  6. Interesting post (#3724) at HF from Baldr of Schiit Audio: http://www.head-fi.org/t/766347/schiit-yggdrasil-impressions-thread/3720#post_13152144 Summary: He is still not an MQA supporter
  7. Yes, I feel the same way at times. The Holo can be a little easier to listen to sometimes, but that little bit of softness may be annoying over time. For instance, on one CSN song (49 bye byes) which is not a great recording, the extra clarity of the Yggy reallly helped.
  8. Yes, it was via i2s from my Sonore Signature Rendu, very nice streamer with no USB involved. The Holo may be a bit sweeter but that costs some detail and soundstage. I will say they are very close if volume matched, which is difficult since the output (vrms?) from the XLRs of the Holo and Yggy is different. I didn't try DSD and only listened in NOS mode. The Yggy was hooked up to the same source via spdif and i had a nice switch to go between the Holo and Yggy, only trouble was volume matching. I would most likely choose the Yggy between the two, especially since it's American made. The Holo is worth a listen. Would love to hear what you think numbers.
  9. Had the Holo Spring on loan for the last week. It is quite good but I think the Yggdrasil is slightly better.
  10. I was thinking the same thing, but then I listened to them on the t2 the other day, and, well, I don't need the money.
  11. Got a 6xx pair after 30 minutes trying. The L3000 sucks, sold mine a long time ago.
  12. I heard the Massdrop Senn 6xx this past weekend and it doesn't sound like I remember 650s sounding, which was dark. I'm gonna snag a pair.
  13. Don't get me wrong, your blah was extremely interesting doug (:
  14. Doug was explaining to us at this recent meet but all I heard was, this stuff is gonna sound really bitchin' blah, blah, blah, no caps, blah, blah, simple design, blah, blah, L-3 has a really cool, cheap Russian tube, blah, blah, we made triodes out of transistors in the DSHA 3 (?), blah, blah, blah, L-3 will have more power, blah. The Utopias sound awesome with the L-2, slightly better (?) than the Dynahi. The phones can be a little bright.
