Good luck finding that. You might find a Valhalla for that price. Maybe.

What brand/type socket savers are some of you using and where's the best place to pick them up? 

 

Thanks so much!

Don't mean to be picky but it's the Bifrost DAC and the Lyr amp 😄. Anyway, I use the PYST RCA cables from Schiit. These things are meant for the Bifrost/Lyr or Asgard. Just make sure you stack the amp ON TOP of the Bifrost.

You can use Schiit's PYST or BJC or Markertek to connect

 In any case, you can get PYST, or you can save some money at Monoprice.

A picture of the Monoprice 1.5 foot RCAs with the pieces of shrink tube cut off and cables pulled apart, and their pretty sweet 1 foot long power cords.

 

~$5 total.

I'm thinking about buying from monoprice too, maybe a coaxial cable as well. just wondering from the lyr RCA out what do you guys use it for? speakerS?

 

thanks guys

Second...or maybe third that Monoprice cable reference. I just got a pair and they are really nice cables for less than half what my Monster cables cost. I am going to get a couple more as well.

Hi, I ordered a Schiit Modi today to upgrade my office desktop sound. Now I'm thinking of adding a Magni to the stack to take my first steps into head-fi.
Questions I have is would the Magni work well a Grado SR-60i or SR-80i?
I'm using a Gungnir in my main system and am really, really happy with the sound of Schiit (had a Bifrost before the Gungnir)
Also what would be the better choise to start with head-fi, the SR-60 or 80, or what other suggestions in the 100-170 euro price range come to mind that would work well with Schiit biggrin.gif

Thanks!!!

According to FedEx, my Shiit M/M and PYST RCA cables will be delivered tomorrow!  I'm going to stop on my way home from work to pick up a USB cable.  Is there any difference between a $5 v. $25 v. $50 USB cable?  Sorry if this is a noob question.  Is a more expensive USB noticeably better?  Thanks.
