      Speaker rigid complete and burned in. Yggy > Freya > CBS NOS 5692 > Tung Sol New 6SN7GTB > Vidar > LS50. Wow. Just Wow.

        I'd like to hear the LS50 again in a proper room. When I heard them at a local shop, I was unimpressed compared to Maggies, but the form factor sure is more appealing.

      Is it strange to say I like the Schiit who releases a product before it is announced better than the Schitt that can't deliver on a promise?

        Underpromise, overdeliver? Sounds fine to me.

      Had been wondering why I thought everybody who said Gumby and Yggy are close was nuts. Turns out my Yggy had shipped with Analog 2!

      I wonder what recordings people think the most transparent. Recordings where your speaker or headphone rig disappear completely. ?

        Pink Floyd The Division Bell is one of my references for recording quality. Other than that I suppose bi-aural recordings produce the most natural sound, there are a few out there.

        What comes immediately to mind is 'Can - Monster Movie' original German Liberty LP, Side 2 "Yoo Doo Right". Not only do the speakers disappear, the room disappears. The sound extends well beyond the room boundaries: left/right, up and depth. It was recorded live in the studio to a 2 track Revox A77 and edited to the final song (about 20 minutes) in 1969.

      First speakers. KEF LS50 with Vidar and Saga set as Near Field, soundstage Wow! But lacks dynamics of Yggy, Mainline, HD800. Suggestions?

        It's definately the speakers. You need more sensitive speakers with bigger woofers to get the same kind of dynamics you're used to with the HD800. Until the late 80s, you could get "bookshelf speakers" with 12" woofers.

        LS50 felt especially limp dick in dynamics department, even compared to same sized monitors. To outdo HD800 slam you really need to get 12'' or bigger bass and some lively mid-tweeter action.

        Don't forget acoustics and sbir, try moving them closer to the rear wall.

      Yggy now has about 150 hours of music run through it. Can not believe just how much muchness it has. That is one deep rabbithole.

        You should try it with speakers if you haven't already but that's a whole nother rabbit hole.

        Ya. I find myself wonder about speakers... I guess the good thing is, that once I've recovered from heaphones.... I can rest assurerd the Yggy can feed speakers, no new DAC will be required.

      Day with friends MassDrop HD6XX. Exceptional for the cost. Warm, flat, natural ... though sucky soundstage for an open back.

        It might be the LISST, soundstage is pretty closed in with them

        Perhaps. Though I run the Ether C Flow out of that rig normally and that closed back makes the soundstage of the HD6xxx seem flat. Also should be noted that MJ2 is amazing except in regards to imaging.. My reference for perfection is Yggy + Mainline + HD800, btw. I am addicted to feeling like I'm not wearing heaphones.

        The spatial stuff Yggy pulled off freaked me out a bit too. I swear in some live jazz albums I could 'hear the room' with the individual instruments reflecting off the walls of the space around them. Or maybe i just did too much peyote as a kid. Yggy + BW2 + HD600 is hypnotic...

      Very happy to not be limiting my Gumby with a Mjolnir 2 anymore... time to toss the MJ2 to the wind.

        I've actually had a Bottlehead Mainline for awhile but had moved the Gumby into my work rig. I moved it home with the Mainline which reminded me how great the Gumby is.

      Mmm still can't decide if having tubes in the MJ2 is a waste of time.
