        looks like there were talks that Gungnir MB DAC would be phased out but I can’t be certain as I don’t read a lot on forums outside of SBAF

        MJ2 was phased out in part because of the large form factor. Gungnir has the same form factor. I think that's what accelerated the Gungnir speculation recently..

      HD800+Sorrodjeholtz Resonadah + Serious' material = The HD 800 I ever wanted. Subbass and power of course not at HE-6 levels but it's fine

        It's that white SBAF material from the SBAF mod. How does the J-mod look like and what materials did you use?

        Dark Seoul xD well put!! Got that reference.
        Actually I do have a 800 mod I made for myself. But it’s way too simple so I haven’t really published it. It just tones down the sharpness and ups the bass a tiny bit without compromising soundstage.

        Does not seem like it. Several interesting things, from the depth of the pads (my ears would like that I think) to the recommended 2W per channel with an alleged 95db (per 1mW I assume) sensitivity...

      Can the enhanced I2S of Sonic Frontier DACs be used with sth. else of today or is the protocol too different and would also need a firmware?

      560S sound great but no HD 600/650 killers as hyped before. Better bass extension, more clarity there. Not as natural, nuanced in the mids.

        I haven't heard the MA900 though with all the current gear so I need to unpack it and see it how it actually fares by now. Will do that tomorrow.

        The Liquid Crimson helped with the Philips Holland E88CC tubes, contrary to the HPA-1 from Pass Labs which is more linear and less soft. Not a good pairing with the 560S.

        Marv still has the Vali I think and I think it's also best to wait for him to tear it all down as I am sure he has ideas for mods.

        HEDD is super small team that has been having a tricky time meeting current demand with covid limiting production. I finally have some units coming in soon, I think I can talk to HEDD about a review tour.

        I have the small yoke version right now and my incoming batch is larger yoke.

      Is the TH-909 worth looking into? Is it similar to the TH-900 with slightly less bass volume and maybe more even treble, lower mids?

        Ouch, that looks like I might even prefer the older one. Treble peak looks not-at-all-fixed and instead of 500Hz dip you now get a 1.5-2kHz dip?

        I take offence to not preferring 1kHz dips to 500-600Hz! :P

        Kidding aside yeah the 909 fixes some of the 900's issues but doesn't key it all in. I'm mostly curious how the semiopen configuration changes reverb character and resolution, plus "textures"

        There's a very simple mod you can do to basically solve the treble peak on the 900s and X00s with most pads other than stock, I know the 909 has the same drivers as the 900 so a similar tweak might work just as well. Been meaning to get open cups built for my 900s...

        Got no other use for it right now. Banking on the protection features which might not hurt, though I might be trying too hard to find a use case when electricity in Germany is very stable and reliable.

        It might save you your PC PSU in worse case scenario, but these have some surge voltage protection already in them. Other sensitive electronics might benefit when the power company messes around with switches. Mostly still double safety, just in case...

        Also FWIW the low-mid recession strangely disappears on the EARS when you add a bit of pressure. Could possibly just be a seal thing. With different cup stuffing and baffle adjustments, the dip lightens up a bit too.

        Thanks Evan. It probably is the pads, they are kinda flat for my taste and don't seem to fit as well as all the different pads that the Hifiman game made me amass, which I'm used to. TH-900 are so beautiful and delicate modding them is very new

        The TH-X00 pads help change things out a lot, someone posted measurements showing how the treble peak shifted from ~7kHz to 10~11k as per the MDxFostexes. I got to try the same in demo conditions and can confirm the pads go a long ways towards making the treble less painful. Tiny ear hole, not a problem for me but might be for others.

        I’m thinking the modularity. Something the size of Gungnir and Yggdrasil, not sure it’s possible that everything will be swappable like Bifrost. Like those huge analog boards on Yggdrasil - seems kinda crazy to be able to swap those from the rear of the unit along with the other boards.

        The whole philosophy with the multibits is that there is no interpolation or extrapolation of the bits. This just carries that to the hardware level.
