They're a lot bigger in width and depth, but the height is the same.

 

Statement stuff will be a lot deeper. And taller.

I'm pretty stoked about the new Schiit, especially some statement Schiit.

Alright, very cool. One last question (not too get more detail, but I'm really interested), how heavy are these two new products in comparison to the other ones that you currently have?

The weight of each schiit product is listed on their website.

I just got my Lyr / Bitfrost combo in the mail, and hooked it up.  The Lyr runs pretty hot.  Should I be worried about stacking it on top of the bitfrost, which covers the air vents?

It's OK, just don't cover the Lyr.

I love this section of the Asgard FAQ, but I seem to be the only one who has read it .....

 

 

You know, Asgard runs really hot?
You know, Asgard’s chassis is its heat-sink, and that it is a Class-A amplifier? Yep, it runs hot.

Like, very hot?
Like, very hot. It’s OK. We’re well within the limits of the output devices. Remember, there’s a 5-year warranty on our products. We have to be damn certain they’ll survive.

I've read them all through, they make me laugh every time. Especially the Gungnir one.

I don't think the airvents on the Bifrost are actually real.. too lazy to lift the Lyr to check haha

You don't have to worry about stacking.  Bifrost will do fine on the bottom.

I've read it. Otherwise I would have returned the Asgard by now. It's SERIOUSLY hot.

This is covered in the Bifrost manual.

"How Come These Vents Don't Go Through?

Hey you try getting FCC-friendly radiated noise on a DAC that has vents in the cover. Go ahead, try. But hey, they look cool, right?"

 

LOL

Imo the heat from Asgard is nothing. Couple of my tube amps run much much hotter. And they are still alive and kicking :)

Wow, really? If the Asgard gets any hotter I'll have problems adjusting the volume!

Check the box your amp came in - there should be a pair of oven mitts in the bottom.
