For those wondering how these compare run from a Schiit Stack (technically a Magni 3 + Fulla 2 as a dedicated DAC, which has the same chipset as a Modi 2) vs Schiit Fulla 2 by itself, there is absolutely no difference in sound whatsoever. The paired set can maybe go 5-10% louder, but that's where it ends. Don't waste your money on the Stack. Get a Fulla 2 for half the cost or get something else.
An amp that does its job properly will simply act as a "wire with gain," without coloring the sound in any significant way. A better way to get a change in sound would be to experiment with tube amps. Switching from the Fulla 2's amp to the Magni 2 or 3 would definitely be worthwhile if you need more power output, a gain switch, and/or want the RCA outputs for speakers. I personally found the Fulla 2 a bit too bright for my tastes and I ended up returning it within the 15-day trial period. I currently use the Schiit Eitr, Modi Multibit DAC, & Magni 3 amp stack. Sounds great with all of my headphones (including HD650 & HD660S) and I plan to stick with this setup for the foreseeable future.
You may want to add that that is your opinion :)
