        Comparing the two, trying to decide which to keep... tonality is a bit of a wash, Gungnir is possibly more natural/enjoyable but Qutest is more resolving.

        Generally can sort out micro dynamics on both, but it’s easier on the chord DAC.

        There's a unique loneliness in having a cool headphone almost nobody else has heard. How's that headband treating you? You should do a comparative review vs some of your other headphones, despite the fact that it's now unobtanium in 2 ways (5LE quite rare, LFF no longer active)

        The headband is holding up fine...I retweaked it to be a bit straighter but have also ordered a replacement from HFM (about a month lost in the mail at this point). I also swapped in the DCA Ether 2 pads (perfect match) I am making notes for a comparison but it is making my HE6 jealous.

        Open to D/S also. Then I can try out Schiits upgrade program!

        A1 would be the preference but not required

        Would the GSX-mini pair better with the A1 or A2 Gungnir...I have gone ahead and read too much about this DAC to know which one would pair better?!

        I love it when a plan comes together. Imma getting a PMx2 <happy dance>. Now to get rid of my PM2. They're a headphone that deserves to be torn apart and modded to make better.

        Honestly feel guilty to have snagged these from you for $300...feel like I should have at least paid several hundred more dollars for a headphone that sounds this good...guess I'll post some impressions here when the honeymoon period wears off a bit and I can think about the sound in a bit more of a critical vein

      To Jot. 2 or not !? It would replace Freya s as pre amp and Increase headphone options beyond Vidar/HE6 combo

        I don't expect Jot 2 to be competitive with Freya S as a preamp. After living with Freya S, it would be hard to trade the stepped attenuator for a pot, no matter how good. But if you only have a desktop rig and it would simplify your setup, definitely worth considering. The output switching is a nice bonus too.

        Saga+ was a big improvement over my GLMK2, which i preferred over original Jot. The Freya S with more steps and no tube nervosa was another step in the right direction. I gues the better comparison would be Jot 2 vs GLMK2

        isn't it a common thing for HE6 owners to use speaker taps? I know some owners did that with their Rag 1 so I'm sure same thing applies w/ Rag 2?

        Not really the same, but I like using my HD580 w/ speaker taps off of my Elekit LOL feels more grippy in the bass/macrodyna and better clarity maybe?

        Im running Freya/Vidar setup now with HE6, but it does not lend itself to other headphones. I wonder if the Rag 2 can retain some of that speaker magic and control other headphones too!

        I don't own Rag 2, but if I recall correctly Jason designed it to deliver full speaker power output to the balanced headphone jack. So you certainly could run the HE6 from the speaker taps, but I'm not sure how much benefit you would see.

        You should still try the JAR650 if u get a chance, I personally like it slightly more than the JAR600. Also please try to keep it within SBAF if you end up listing it in the future, Enjoy! :)

        The stock cable makes no sense, good cable... way too heavy. At most could be four conductor.

        The cascade cable could not be any lighter and are a great match for the headphone!

      Was enjoying Foo Fighters Sonic Highways, but distortion in "In the Clear" left channel only, starting at about 2:30 really ruined it.

        I’ve heard oddities with other Foo Fighters albums as well. Distortion in channels, guitars flipping sides briefly, really weird mixing mistakes. It was only on Tidal but Yourube version and Google Play music were fine.

        I have been noticing a lot of poor recording quality on tidal lately and frankly it is disappointing. I tried youtube, GPM, and Apple music, each service had the same distortion/buzz...just more noticeable in Tidal.

        Also Glover decided to get out because he had other projects/invitations and the same with Chase and the other, that I don't remember the name. Also there was the rumors of production disagreements. It's a shame because i think it easily could've gotten 2 more seasons out of it.

        A deep rabbit hole indeed. I have been exploring the same when too lazy to make my own since flour was scarce. I like the thinner varieties like Home Run and Screamin Sicilian and when I want slightly healthier Newmans and Amy's but appreciate the doughy kinds too.
