Speculation: it'll probably work as a switch with the volume turned all the way up. We don't know how the volume control will work, though.

Do you guy recommend me this combo to pair with LCD 2 and Alpha Dog? I am searching for a mid-fi all around amp ($400-$900 range) that will do the job decently with many headphones (I dont count HE-6 or K1000). My target is the Headamp GS-X, I have heard nothing but good about them.

 

I don't see why you wouldn't use the Bifrost and Lyr for the flagships. They are pretty hard to beat at that price. Besides, the Lyr was designed for orthos.

Seems like there might be a market for a 2nd model--one wired in reverse for switching between two outputs.

Actually with a standard RCA switch box without a volume control can work both ways most of the time. I use a RCA switch box to redirect my Loki to either my two monitors or the AV receiver.

Words are tricky, The current product is intended for switching between two outputs (sources) to one input (amp).

You probably meant to switch one output to two different inputs (distribution). Unless you need an attenuator or a means of muting one path, you could use Y cables. If this was to have two attenuators, that would be nice.

Being minimalist, Schiit probably decided that if things were at a proper line level, multiple attenuators to balance levels would be unnecessary. Unfortunatley Schiit doesn't always work out so to be so clean.

OK, let's have a product meeting, where's Jason? :D

Speaking of which, how's the antibiotics working out for you? Two weeks ago I spent four days on an IV, amongst the bags were two different antibiotics. I am probably still impervious to Anthrax. :D

There's a progress, but I don't feel I'm 100% "there" yet. Still can't get the level of comfort/non-fatiguing experience from the music listening I used to years ago.

That's why I'm going to see an audiologist to check my hearing too.

Mjolnir+audeze= very nice

Mjolnir +hd800= not as nice

Gungnir is well regarded no matter what though, as far as I've read, I do t personally have one

Actually, I was using the terminology on the SYS Preamp. Right now it has two input plugs and one output. But you are right. It is confusing depending on how you talk about it smily_headphones1.gif

I would love it if Schiit made a phono pre with MM/MC compatibility. I would pay upwords of $250-$300 for that
