That was fast!
fedex overnight is wonderful if you're willing to pay for it.
Initial impressions are very positive, I normally listen to some form of tube amps. Asgard 3 was my only SS for over a year. Tried magnius and learned very quick those kind of amps make me run away very unhappily. Never heard either iteration of previous Jot, but this doesn't sound like magnius or what I've read about those.
Saw on head-poo people complaining about the volume knob, no issues here. Amp is barely warm after an hour. Been listening to ZDT JR for about 10 days straight with Aeolus and very familiar with SW51+ so this is where my preferences are. Seems a bit faster than Asgard 3 with better fleshed out lows.
I'm not hearing a compressed type sound at all. All I can offer so far is this sounds great using those amps as a reference to my ears. It takes me a long time to form any sort of useable opinion with specifics plus I suck at impressions. Starlett with HD650 is what I compare everything to now and if I can live with it !
Compared to the Asgard 3, the SW51+ does an awesome job at lifting the veil from the HD650s. If you feel inclined to compare, is the Jot2 closer to the A3 or the SW51+ in this regard?
I thought the same thing until I got a bifrost 2, that really made the Asgard 3 better in that regard @JellyRhino I bet the high Z helps with that on SW51+ Unfortunately I have not listened to HD650 much in over a month since Aeolus arrived. Still my fav headphone though so I will get there !
If it helps though I liked liquid platinum better with Aeolus than SW51+ with HD650 it was sort of a draw for me. Mood and source material dependent. Using Jot 2 balanced with bifrost 2 USB of course. I'm off until 2021 after tonight so should be fun. I'm going try and not jump the gun, but Super Asgard 3 is what I want to say.
Some time with stock HD6xx on Jot2. First impression was this amp has great lows ! I didn't get that impression as much from Aeolus. More extension both ways compared to Asgard 3.
