      Just finished KISS mod on my HD6xx. Many thanks to @Pillars for sharing some Dynamat Extreme. Now to listen for a while... Then coin mod?

        One vote for no coin mod :)

        I did the coin mod over lunch, and I like it! Bear in mind that I'm in my mid-50's, with some tinnitus and probably some HF hearing loss...

        and I figure that if I don't like it over time, I can just replace the pads...

      Ordered a 10' balanced headphone extension cable from Ursine.audio. Probably the best accessory of the year!

      In Seattle overnight before an Alaska Cruise. The force is strong here, but I feel a disturbance - small man sobbing “why must I add 60dB?”

        It’s still too compressed. :(

        I rarely use HDTracks, but like their testing stuff and binaural recordings. Prices really are kinda scary, and the quality... Mm.

      Noticed Schiit is listing Black Bifrost, Jotunheim, and Vidar, maybe others, for those on the dark side...

      Got my HD6xx today! Holy cow -- it's like a more resolving HD600 with a subwoofer! Now I know what I've been missing all this time...

        So far, I’m liking the sound overall, but I think I want to listen to stock for a few months, then explore probably the KISS and coin mods

        It was a pleasure dining and enjoying some good music with a good man. Sorry for giving you the tube itch ; )

        Yes, I think my ears love you, but my wallet hates you! Contemplating the ZDT Jr. except that it’s not balanced... Time to start saving up, I guess... ;-)

      Even on Sunday night, Schiit support helped me with an issue with my Gungnir Multibit. Turns out the output got Muted in Audio MIDI Setup! Thanks Nick!

      My new Gungnir Multibit's analog output is dead, but Schiit support is replying to email on a Sunday night...

      I can hear clearly now, the glare is gone... :-) Loving the Gungnir Multibit so far, listening to lots of tracks...

        What was your previous DAC?

        I'd been using the Delta-Sigma DAC module in the Jotunheim. It's not a bad DAC, probably comparable to the Modi, but I did hear some treble glare

      My Gungnir Multibit arrived today! It's "pre-heating" now... :-)

        Wonder if it'll heat up faster if you blow a hairdryer over it for a few minutes. Lol Enjoy!

      My 2011 MacBookPro died, replaced it with a new 27" Retina iMac. Now if I could just get iTunes to find its files...
