Both are really solid amps, but I would say that the a3 has more weight behind it imo, and also is a bit warmer, and the 2.5 pro is a bit more neutral and a tad more lean. It really depends on what headphones you plan to go after
I really enjoy the idea of having one equipment for each job.
I’ll get a better DAC later on.
It’s just unfortunate that some appliances fucked up my budget lol, but hey, can’t live without a fridge or with an unhappy wife LOL
Mostly jazz, heavy metal and rock. I do listen to other genres but that’s what I listen on daily basis.
In terms of headphones, denon ahd7200, hifiman sundara, audeze LCD 2 and maybe one of the many focals. It’s late here, I don’t remember my list anymore haha
But in general, I would love to have two different systems, an analytical and balanced one and a warm one, maybe a tube lol.
This grammar auto corrector is killing me! Lol
I was considering getting Asgard 3 but at the end got Arcam rHead as it cheaper then A3 in UK. I got mine for £170 on ebay (brand new). I am using it with Audioquest Drangofly Red and Fostex Tr50p MKIII (slighlty modded) and would say this combo for Jazz and Electronic music is amazing. Not the biggest fan of vocals on Fostex but defineltly worth considering this amp. Not as powefull as A3 but also Class A and build quality is stellar.
Not sure if I show start a new thread, but I’m getting a high pitch interference noise on my blon-03 when I plug it to my amp and I don’t hear the same noise when I plug it directly to my PC.
Could it be a cable fault? I still got some time to buy a new cable or just return the blon iem.
Btw. I got in touch with schiit and geshelli.
Schiit doesn’t knows when they’ll be able to supply the asgard 3 and geshelli is business as usual, which is quite cool and kinda makes me want to buy the archel 2.5 pro lol
