I just missed the joke and found the whole thing to be off topic. Ive seen you make that request elsewhere also to make new threads. Why dont you try to become a mod. Personally I find it to be just fine. Sorry I missed your joke. I still dont quite get it though cool.gif  Oh well, I guess this ones on me.

So I wasn't home for more than 5 minutes and I had to open this puppy up. I love the packing it's so anti-Apple. Right out of the box it sounded horrible. Very grainy, however that could have been my tubes warming up. 7 hours later it's coming into its own. Too early for a review but listening to 1.fm reggae trade there is plenty of bass. I've got a feeling this dog can hunt. More in 48 hours...

Very happy so far, having tried USB and toslink.

The Schiit Bifrost is sounding magical with the Lyr and Beyerdynamic DT990. So much speed and dynamic capability!

Got a nice little shock going to Radio Shack for an optical cable tonight. Apparently the standard optical cables these days are $40. Went on Monoprice and picked up the 'premium' cable shipped for $7. We'll see if this fixes my noise problems.

Feed Me, Feed Me...

The unit only has 9 hours run in, but I'm impressed. For fun I connected my old Cal Delta cd transport to the coaxial input. It's still rough around the edges, but oh my the potential. I just spun the Mighty Sam McMlain (give it up to love - xrcd) and a few cuts from The Village (music of Greenwich village) and you can tell that the better the grape the finer the wine. I've run Internet radio via glass toslink and a Mac mini via USB. They maybe easier to use and more forgiving but at this early stage the coaxial input sounds the best.

Wow, Im jealous of you guys. Mine shipped out today and only has to travel up the coast and its not due to be here until the 9th. Oh well, so long you guys keep the good news coming it will be fun to wait. I have to say I was pretty surprised to see its gonna take 5 days to go 20 hours of driving time. Love seeing all the pics posted too!

Still waiting on my order #474 with USB going to Australia.

Yeah, seriously - you'd think THAT's crazy, but I e-mailed Jason last week at ~11:30 pm PST (Schiit is PST also) and he responded in, like, a minute thirty. blink.gif

I deal with milti trillion dollar companies everyday and I support products that are $500.000AU and to get support throught some of these organisations can take mths/yrs to get a solution to our clients.  Take the Iphone4 etc the latest firmaware just fixed my remote internet connection issue and thats almost 12mths of complaints thru my organisation.  There is also a stigma that douwnunder is just 1% fo the world markets thats why we are not taken seriously with priority. 

To see Jason  monitoring the post and feedback on this thread and to ensure that end user is satisfied, from the time a order is placed to the time people are posting there issues and opinions, well what can you say, mate I take my hat off and take a bow.  I dont think there is a director or designer that has taken such interest to ensure this level of customer service.

Its not just good schiit,  but f****n excellent Schiit!!!  And I dont own any Schiit products, not yet anyway.

And no I have no financial interest or relations with Jason or Schiit and that can be comfirmed with Jason!

Have one of those in my toolbox too.  wink.gif  

 

At the time i just wanted to go to a brick and mortar and grab 5-7 different ones and try them out.  Ended up keeping a $7.99 and $14.99 cable and returned the rest.  The others were both cheaper and more expensive so price meant nothing compared to what I heard.

Same cable for almost half price. Monoprice also offers super cheap shipping for small orders, in my case $2.50. I got the 6 foot version, though.
