I have a lot of stuff, really I need an intervention, and much of it is $$$ but when I hook up my Valhalla to my Cambridge cdp running a pair of Senn HD 600 I really wonder why I need to have any other gear What's the saying if ain't  broke don't fix it but audiophilia is actually a type of paranoia, the obsession that some piece of gear you don't have sounds better. As far as I'm concerned the good people at Schiit could have stopped with the Valhalla and Lyr but I know...

Back in the day when I was in college and working part time at a book store to have some money to buy books I got up enough courage to ask the boss for a raise. He said that my good work habits had not gone unnoticed  and he was particularly impressed by my knowledge of sci-fi He made me the manager of the sci -fi paper back division and I left the meeting thrilled beyond anything you could imagine I was part of the management team. Oh by the way no raise
Upgrade itis drives the hobby and provides the manufactures the opportunity to empty our wallets it's a symbiotic win/win relationship. I would only suggest to Jason that if there is a demand for a dac/amp integrated unit go for it maybe an upgradeable plug in (update later) dac in the "box".  In some ways this is reminiscent of the separate amp, pre amp vs integrated amp debate  I've had both and there is something convenient about the one box solution  I can't comment...
