        Nice! It was either a Yggdrasil/Gungnir Multibit or Verite Closed Lmtd Stabilized Maple. I can't pass up on the Stabilized Maples once they come out so putting the DAC on hold until probably next year.

        JAR650 do look really interesting too.

        If you're at liberty to share later, curious about what happened. Common sense says the switch just had a physical issue, but strange things happen...

        @fp627 I wish i had a crazy story but just was switching between low/high because wanted to use my HD 6XX instead of my IEMs. When trying to flip it up it just got stuck in between and is just stuck there and won't budge now. Not really sure whats wrong with it but was afraid to push too hard. Didn't wanna break it in case that was outside warranty.

      Got to try out the Utopias, realize the Focal sound just isn't for me.

        The guy with the Dave + Utopia and I did a mini-meet together. Discovered he’s more frequency domain and I’m more time domain. He describes what he hears in terms of frequency and treble smoothness. I describe what I hear in terms of imaging and layering and soundstage. That explains why we’ve each taken different paths in gear choices and preference.

        Yea I certainly value time domain stuff myself, hence why I own an SR 009 [non s] and not a Utopia, but I run 009 on tubes so there's that and even then I don't feel 009 lacks impact but it's a bit toooo lean or fast sometimes... still better for my tastes than utopia

        The issue with Daft Punk and the SR009S was Dave. Dave separates and layers so much. Bass notes and the effects on those notes get separated from each other. The SR009S presents that separation. It’s a weird analytical way to listen to Daft Punk. With a normal DAC like a ADI-2 the SR009 will play Daft Punk more normally without that excess separation and the music holds together better.

        @Vtory I got a pair of Nectar Hive. They are an interesting pair of estats that apparently punch pretty well above their price tag. But will also grab some STAX in the future

        I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's not like you're going to lose much value if you decide to sell it down the road either.

      Asgard 3 says would be shipping on 6/30. Now 7/1 and mine hasn't shipped yet now I'm getting paranoid. Realized I don't have patience

        @dncnexus I regularly rotate headphones, so they all get use. However, I can't use my system while working; it's too distracting. I like to listen by "visiting my temple of sound" vs listening casually most of the day.

        If you end up liking the Asgard 3, you'll also like the Starlett. The Asgard 3 is kind of like a solid state, mini Starlett.
