Just received Magni/Modi combo.
Will I sacrifice any quality by not using the Modi power supply?

(The light is super bright and it stays on if I use the wall plug.)

The Modi doesn't have a power supply.  It is powered by the USB

Hello everyone today i got my lyr amp that i bought from another member here, the amp work wonderfully with my headphones. I have a question though, after putting the tubes in and listening to music for a while I noticed that one of the tubes glows stronger than the other. Is this going to be a problem or is it normal? thanks

Thanks for the info. Are there any other threads tracking the statement, or any idea when they'll give details? I haven't been following Schiit for too long so I don't know how far in advance they drop details on upcoming products or if they tend to be announced suddenly. I'd love to know how much of my beer money I should be tucking away too wink_face.gif I'm assuming it'll be in the 1500-2000 range right now. Here's hoping it isn't balanced only so I can connect a turntable via a phono pre-amp.

Current plan seems to be June-August release for both.

Both meaning ??  Are you saying the tube and solid state versions will both be out mid to late summer 2013 or is there a separate "statement" DAC and "statement" amp or will this one be an integrated "statement"?   I love the idea of an integrated that can be upgraded with a new DAC section as technology improves, that is really cool.

I mean both as in the DAC and the amp (separate devices). Technically it's three as the amp comes either fully SS or hybrid.

Is it to be an end-to-end balanced only affair like gungnir/mjolnir as far as rumors go? I guess I can get a balanced cable if I have to, just concerned about not being able to use my turntable with it (without conversion).

No, the statement amps should output unbalanced as well. It will have speaker taps as well.

Depends on your budget. Statement pair is expected to be around $1500 each component, or twice as much as the former.

I just got done asking Jason about this. I love his concise but always seemingly ambiguous replies.

 

Summer = until September 21. Later = later.

I've head several tube amps over the years, and it's quite common that two tubes glow with different intensities.  It's only a problem if you have a channel volume imbalance.  If you don't, enjoy the amp.  If you do, it can usually be fixed by buying a set of fresh tubes.
