Used backwards, chances are that with the volume down all the way one might be close to applying a short to ground on what ever is plugged into the unswiitched jacks. This is if a conventional attenuator circuit is employed.. As you turn up the volume control the load on this input goes up to the max resistance of the volume pot in parrallel with whatever's impedance is switched into play. It will certainly not act like a proper volume control. I doubt that you guys ever intended for anyone to get their Schiit backwards,.
Hey man, this is no laughing matter, ths is some serious Schiit.
Wipe that Schiit eat'in grin off yer face.
I want to upgrade my system from O2/ODAC to Schiit stuffs (ubber Biofrost & Lyr). However, I dont see lot of people recomend it with flagship headphones (HD800 & Audeze phones) Same does for the Mjolnir and Gungnir
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.
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?
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.
