Bifrost + Valhalla 2

Eudemon

1,776 views

Due Defect unit of my previous setup, decided to pull the trigger on this upgrade (also small treat for myself for the new job)

 

Here are just some day one impressions

When talk about tube amps, people generally say they are warm and smooth, it gives me an impression that it is best for midrange frequency

You know me, I like Japanese music and Anime, it is full of female vocals

they are very rich in the high frequency spectrum, to the point sometimes even piercing trebles

For that reason I was hesitating for not picking a solid state amp, after hear numerous good things about Schiit products I decided to give it a try

The Valhalla is not tubey at all, neutral, it preserves the brightness of my HD800

Of course early input means it hasn't completely burn-in yet, but as of now it suits me very well and I don't need any tube rolling

 

As for the Bifrost, there is not much to talk about other than delivers cristal clear details,  very good sense of sound stage

note that this setup has high amount of output, and it is designed specifically for high impedance headphone like my HD800 (600 ohm)


And I forgot to mention the DAC and AMP are all made in USA while the headphone is hand made in Germany

 

 

Down for some photos

我觉得我在忘记之前也去报考一下比较好

站长现在依然身在米国么?

话说有没有什么比较亲昵的叫法?老是站长长站长短的不习惯啊:19:
