Be careful, the tubes might cause a fire...

I don't understand why most every headphone amp only has one input? I want to hook my SACD player AND my computer to my Schiit....

I got a switch, it fixed the problem nicely.

I'm a purist, I don't want other crap in front of my Schiit, it would be wrong....

Would you prefer the switch inside your Schiit?

 

I would only want a switch in my signal path of it was solid gold and hand carved by Tibetan monks. It's my understanding that this is a possibility at Schiit.

Well I know they have elfs working there sprinkling pixie dust on the amps and dacs as they leave the assembly line so monks are certainly not out of the question.

What would you guys think about some stylish aluminum footers that would screw into the bottom of the Schiit amps? Of course it wouldn't work for those who stack, but I don't stack and would appreciate such a feature. 

 

The glue on the bottom of the rubber footers tends to heat up and get loose from the original position. 

 

Just a thought.

Sounds like a good idea. I have my rubber feet resting on RDC cups at the moment.

This would be a good DIY project if you had the right tools (especially the taps and cutting fluid) and the courage to disassemble your Schiit. For stacking, just use small discs on top of the lower box, under the sharp points. I've seen it done with a Schiit stack, at a meet. Since the guy wasn't using any adhesive on the footers, it was fun to watch him juggle an amp and three cones at the same time. But he prevailed.

I've taken the bifrost apart when I added the uber board. It was no problem at all.

Dayton Audio makes really nice, adhesive aluminum isolation cones.  I put some on my Asgard 1, and the heat never affected the adhesive.  Looks sharp.

Nice, I'll have to check those out. Thanks for the info. bigsmile_face.gif

 

Can you link to the ones you bought? They have many. 

 

Care to share a pic?
