I was thinking of being "that guy" with the custom Schiit haha.

 

I emailed the Schiit guys awhile back and they said painting it wouldn't void the warranty or anything.

 

Dooo Eeet. Nao.

I could really go for a "Hello Kitty" edition of the Lyr...

 

How's the Bifrost going?

It has exceeded expectations. Yesterday I picked up a cheap Asus Windoze 8 11 Inch Laptop with a touch screen to use as a media player. I've got Foobar2K and Google Player (All Access Subscription) going on it. My ears are dancing. :happy_face1:

It has a 500 GB 5400 RPM hard drive, I might put in a 256 MB SSD.

You feed it by USB?

Yes I do and it works purrrfectly. That's why I got the Windoze device. I was going to try my Samsung Galaxy S3 but it had a stroke yesterday and didn't open its eyes again. Verizon has another one coming to me today so I'll be trying that. If it doesn't work with OTG USB, I can take the GS3's USB to a FIIO E18 and the E18's Coax SPDIF to the Bifrost. This would bypass the E18 DAC and Amp, only using it as a USB to SPDIF converter. I've done this before to with another DAC and it worked. Sneaky, ain't I? :evil:

S3 and OTG doesn't work with the Bifrost.  At least not my attempts with it.  I use Gizmo on my S3 to control MC19 on my 8.1 laptop.  It works quite well.

Then you're stuck with the one app, no? I use apps for streaming as well. If you use the FiiO E18 as a passthrough to SPDIF to the Bifrost, the media control buttons in the E18 work with any compliant app.

I'm not sure I follow exactly what you are wanting to do?  What are you streaming?  S3 is the source of the stream?

post #4436 of 5099

Think I should go for a Matte black or semi gloss for my Magni/Modi or maybe Metallic?

 

And what do you guys think about connecting Magni and Modi sideways.  Headphone port at the bottom right and just double tape the Modi to the Magni.

S3 as the vehicle streaming Spotify or Google All Access via USB to the FiiO E18 who's Coax SPDIF out goes to the Bifrost (or other DAC) Coax SPDIF input.
