So I bought a Asgard 3 with the built in dac which is not multibit. Then I bought a very similar amp, the smsl and the mono price thx. The Asgard is richer sounding but noisier. Thx was cleaner and I eventually sold the Asgard 3 for the thx. Less noise is less listening fatigue. I was just comparing the amps. There are smaller differences between the thx amps. The mono price is the best built. The mass drop is next followed by the smsl.

Not really fair to compare because, well, one has a DAC because of the modular nature of the product and the other does not. However, as far as the amplification stage is concerned, do you want an all-in-one solution with single ended inputs or a balanced option? What are you attempting to drive? Are you just using this as a desktop setup for headphones or are you looking to add additional peripherals? These are some of the questions you should ask yourself, the answer should be readily apparent after.

Thanks for the reply. I know its not exactly an apples to apples comparison, and I’m new to the audio world... Currently using my MacBook -> Schitt Asgard 3 -> Audeze LCDi3. Not balanced, just a 3.5mm jack. I realize I’d need to pair with a DAC as well. I guess my question was more “how does the 789 w/ a recommended DAC compare to the Asgard 3 multibit.

I bought the THX AAA ONE and the Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable in the related installation for the HD 6XX. When the shipment arrived at my house, I found out that I couldn't connect a TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable to my THX AAA ONE amplifier. Please let me know if there is a way to connect a Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm cable to a THX AAA ONE amplifier.

I was just about to buy these when they went off sale :( does anyone know how regularly these go on sale? Also, what's up with the "9 days left" under the add to cart button? Does that mean there's only 9 days left to buy these before they leave the site? If that's true are there any equivalent headphones in the $400 range (preferably closed back)?

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
