Hehe, you're ruining everyone's wallet.

All one can do is try (and listen to) different ways, starting with "free" and working through more costly (sexier?) methods.

I plug and unplug between my Stax amp and Valhalla at home, but really got sick of that at a recent HeadFi meet. So I emailed Schiit, asking if they had any problems with a "Y" out of Bifrost. They said "...no sweat, we do it all the time...". So I'll use a "Y" in less critical situations in the future.

Just my take on it.

Get those all metal y-splitters. Jason said this shouldn't be an issue. The most effect it will have would be a couple of dbs less volume. Have been using y-splitters with my bifrost for a looong time now. No noticeable difference to me.

Good luck on your search.

Link me to a high quality one or the one you're using?

Did a little leg work on my own. Something as simple as just throwing two of these on the back of a Bifrost?

Those are very nice indeed! Somewhat related question. Do you guys buy the RCA cables from Schiit or do you go with another brand? I wanted to go with other brand because I thought they were kinda expensive, but I had problems finding some that were only 6".

I've bought a pair from Schiit (PYST) and a pair, from www.crutchfield.com (AudioQuest).

post #4004 of 6994
PYST cables are Straight Wire brand cables, not actually made by Schiit. One pair I got a while ago are Flexconnect II cable with black RCA plugs. Another pair I got more recently are Concerto cable with silver plugs. The Flexconnect II cables are thicker than the Concerto cables.

Damn, I picked a really bad time to order a magni (or maybe they are always backordered/out of stock, I know they are really popular and well liked), because I needed an amp ASAP, now I've wasted a whole week and that sucker isn't going to ship out anytime very soon. They didn't say out of stock at the time when I ordered. I hope I can cancel the order if I decide to. Still love my Modi (that shipped very quickly back when I ordered it a few weeks ago). They definitely make great products.
