I used to get a bit of interference with mine (I also get interference with my Leckerton and the new Magni amp from Schiit...).
I'm not sure if the new updates help with this or not (probably not...)post #685 of 6921/29/13 at 9:25pmAnyone getting the new Schiit? I heard its about the same in SQ as the C421, but with less soundstage and a lot more power.
The Asgard or Lyr by any chance a worthwhile upgrade?
