I built a new PC and decided to keep it on my desktop. This means I’ll need to move my speakers and turntable to another location to make space. I’ll need a new headphone amp to pair with the Mani at the new location. I was going to get a Modi 3, but stumbled on the JDS Lab Atom. I’ll give the Atom a try. While looking into the Atom, I also stumbled on the Monoprice THX DAC/AMP and the Massdrop 789 THX. I’ll probably wait until Black Friday to see if Monoprice does some kind of sale. I’ll probably make my money back selling the Bifrost and Lyr 2, so cost isn’t much of a factor.
Anyone who owned/tried both and have thoughts?
I was comfortable with my audio gear and this just ruined everything. I might even try out some newer headphones now.
