        Not necessarily...but if someone had a set that they were not using I could help them get them off their hands.

        Reason why is that I just just blew a pair due to an improper voltage regulator.

      Just going to throw this out there. Anyone know what happened to that modified Mjolnir 1? I would be interested in hearing it again ;)

        I bought it from @Vtory some time ago. PM me and we can work something out. I don't use it anymore and was planning on selling it soon.

        @rott So you can see into the circuit board? I heard that some old D/S versions were open to the boards inside and that were closed up with the MB upgrade. I have never seen it though

        @Ksorota you're right - my A1 MB does have an internal covering that prevents actually seeing the internals through the vent holes on top.

        I like the idea of the deccware output stage more than a full freya. But unsure what mod is safer for the chips

        I was wondering if the A2 made it redundant, but never was able to track down that note. I know the A1 was a bit gray sounding and the gumfreya cleared it up. Is the A2 void of any grayness?

        I am going to go for it and put up an ad for a Gungnir MB to mod for GumFreya, but if anyone already has one already setup, I would also be interested in that! Save me a step!

        The RD-X is what got me back into high end hp after a 6 year hiatus, will ALWAYS hold a special place in my heart. N I’m on the Auteur Classic loaner too, first ZMF can I’ll get the chance to hear! Supes excited.

        You are in for a treat with the Auteur. In a way its comparable to the RD-x. The bio drivers sound great and with my setup its pulling out lots of detail while maintaining a smooth effortless vibe. Bit more intimate sounding though.

        Perhaps you could lift the mids and even the highs with some shallow beveled cavity perforated earpads

        I hadnt really been considering pad rolling, but had some ZMF ovals to try out, and they make a sig. difference in the presentation. The stock pads were a bit flat, which may account for the drastic change...But these are certainly a better experience.
        Ill have to get some perf. pads soon

      The Lyr+ is excellent, only way to make it better is to add in a DAC card slot, I would easily trade the relay atten. for this as an AIO.

      Not sure if this is true for all sets, but the blue ring on my recently acquired Ether Flows came off with a bit of a firm grip and twist.

        So far I am enjoying it. I am still waiting on the 1.1 upgrade kit, but in stock form its pretty good with enough power behind it. I think that it works very well as a compliment to the HD800. Just an easy listen overall with good bass extension and smooth mids/treble.

        Hearing a 2.3 with a modded mk 4 for hd800 was a big listening event for me. It hasn’t been the same since. I assume eaglewings had a similar experience

        The JAR800 will be back with me in a week or so which will be the first time i have heard this combo.

        I am pretty sure part of this revelation today is a new set of rectifiers.
