From what I understand... Jason made the Magni 3's prototype to replace the Asgard 2. However, the warmth (and maybe high-end smoothness) of the Class A amps wasn't as prevalent as with the Class AB design of the "Asgard 3"/Magni 3 prototype. Due to certain things with the Asgard 3's design, it didn't sound as good (in his mind and some other's minds) as the Asgard 2. However, he was able to adapt the design into the Magni 3, and based it mostly after the Jotunheim's SE-side of the topology. So, it's warmer than the 2U and Jotunheim, but not as warm as the Asgard 2. It probably has the plankton and cohesiveness on a level beyond the Vali 2 and Magni 2u, but not quite up tot he Jotunheim. Theoretically, this may actually make the Asgard 2 irrelevant to most people, and have them question whether or not the Jotunheim is actually worth the price to them. In practice, it'll probably just be slightly beyond the Vali 2 overall, but mostly a different sound in general.
