Reviews for Mjolnir

The Ear: Mjolnir 2 and Gungnir Multibit
Richard Barclay

"Mjolnir 2 immediately impresses with its exceptionally low noise floor. This amp is super quiet and provides a spookily muted backdrop for low-level detail to emerge from, especially on the low gain setting which is so silent through over-the-ear headphones you would think you were in an anechoic chamber!"

"Mids are majestically mellifluous in tone yet remain very open, detailed and transparent. Highs are impressively extended, invigoratingly crisp and articulated with improved micro-detail distinction. The soundstage grows in all dimensions with instruments more clearly layered and spaced around the listener in an enveloping sphere of sound, giving a heightened sense of being at the epicentre of the performance."

"While the single-ended circuits are excellent, trading up to balanced elevates the performance to exceptional - and I dare say peerless - in this price range."

"Together, the two units complement each other exceptionally well and offer a seductively revealing, immersive and textured listening experience in which music is allowed to breathe freely. Their combined price-to-performance ratio verges on the ridiculous."

AudioSolace: Mjolnir 2
Smit Patel
"Tonal balance is simply outstanding and this even improves with the different varieties of 6922 tubes available. Compared to ALO’s continental dual mono DAC/Amp, the Mjolnir 2 sounds more holographic with slightly better separation of elements. The Continental, however, is ever so slightly faster in transient response with its stock tubes compared to those of the Mjolnir’s. Micro and macro-dynamics are well preserved with the Mjolnir sounding both dynamic and cohesive. 
With regards to matchability, noise floor is exceptionally low as the Mjolnir 2 is able to drive the entire headphone industry from very efficient IEMs such as the Rock-It Sounds R-50, DUNU DN-2000 & Titan 5s to more mid-power devices such as the HiFiMAN HE-560 and finally high-impedance sets like the Beyerdynamic DT 880s."
