Schiit Owners Unite - Page 175

post #2611 of 7921
Thread Starter 

My comments were certainly not over the top.  Look at the Schiit FAQ.  They proudly say their components are made in the USA.  They boldly say they are an American company supporting Americans.  

 

Also, despite their Norse god nomenclature, their products are quite spartan.  No added fluff to drive the prices up, especially the chassis designs.  The buyers of Schiit are paying for the components that actually have an effect on sound.  

 

Efficient.  Innovative.  Proud.  Self-starting small businesses.  That's something we hear a whole lot about during election season.  You know, the American way.

 

I don't know why you took exception to my post about Schiit.  This is a Schiit fan thread after all.

When you connect Modi, the Windows volume automatically goes to 100%, that's good enough I guess. You could manually adjust it, but would would you :)

Mac's lock the slider because audio professionals dont want the computer software to "touch the sound" and lose quality. Dropping bits, dithering, etc.

 

This is by design for audio pros, us computer audiophiles also reap the benefits.

Leather and wood don't exactly dissipate heat very well.....Those cool looking aluminum chassis are part of the heat sink design I'm pretty sure.

A fan or two wouldn't be the end of the world. There are plenty of very quiet options in the world of cpu cooling already.
