So when is there going to be a drop. Does anyone use a amp that like?
There may never be another drop, or there may be a drop next week. Who knows? And most people who bought these I would assume would use an amp. The Schiit Modi 2 + Magni 2 seem to be popular. I use a Dragonfly Red, and I'm planning to get a Schiit Asgard 2.
Those are very reasonable prices on the amp. I thought I'd have to pay at least double.
I just bought a Schiit Fulla 2 + Magni 2 and it pairs quite well with the HD 6XX. Better and cleaner than the DACport Slim and HD I was using earlier. Not significantly so, but enough to be a bit noticeable.
Is Shiit Fulla 2 preferable to a Modi 2?
People have said the Modi 2 sounds better, but imo the audible difference between DACs in this price bracket is pretty much indistinguishable. They use the same AK4490 chipset anyways. I liked the Fulla 2's variable output for my powered speakers, and if I want I can simply detach the Fulla 2 and take it on the go if I want to go portable.
To go amps are a must. Wonder how long the batteries would last for heavy use.
Thanks! Thought the Fulla 2 had trouble with some frequences so I've ordered a Magni 2 to compare. Wasn't planning to keep both though... I'll see how it compares with or without the Fulla 2. If it's not really distinguishable I'll get rid of the Fulla 2. For portable use I'd prefer my Dacport Slim.
I've had a listen with my DACport Slim hooked up to the Magni 2 and it also sounded great. So that could be a consideration as well.
