Does anybody here have a working Lry with an EU plug, or any other Schiit product with an EU plug?

 

............

I assume this is posed as a general question to all Headfiers.  I live in India where the voltage is 220V and I order my equipment from Schiit with the EU plug. I do add an adapter to the plug when I use it. Yes, I have a Lyr which has been working for more than a year now.

 

Regards

Even more important, did you have an Asgard 1 with the ouput delay relay? If not I believe they can fix that for you, probably for free.

Keep in mind that the sound signature of the Asgard and Lyr are very different, SS vs, Tubes. What do you prefer?

That's just crap! Who says Point to Point Wiring is better that PCB? You?! The only reason why PTP is expensive is because of the time and labor needed to construct or build the amp and is always heavier. PCB's on the other hand are easier to build and cheaper, a well constructed PCB can sound just as good or better like in the case of the WA3 vs. Valhalla... the latter absolutely blows the WA3 out of the water regardless of price and construction! We all have the psychological mindset that when we buy something it will naturally sound better, but that is not always the case.

Who were you responding to?

It's good to go off with an irrelevant rant every now and then, even if no one cares.

I know right?

I'm thinking of switching the Musical Fidelity V-DAC on my big rig to a Gungnir with a fully balanced connection (my pre/power amps have XLR balanced inputs, but I'm using unbalanced RCA inputs now with a V-DAC). Does it make much sense? Would I notice any difference at all? :)

post #5259 of 6963

Dangerous question to ask bout balanced... can sometimes be as taboo as the cable bit. Personally, if you can, I would take advantage of Schiit's 15-day money back guarantee, then you can let your ears decide :D

Well, I guess the main question was... would I notice a difference between V-DAC and Gungnir. I realize I wouldn't hear much difference from the input type alone.. :)

I think you are the only one who can state whether or not you will hear a difference.

That's true.. I'm just looking for a reason to buy myself a new toy. :D

Since when do you need a reason? OK, you want a reason, "Because." That works for me. :blink:

Ok, I'll be happy to push you over the edge😄. The Gungir happens to be a terrific DAC with a very good USB implementation. Not the greatest in detail retrieval but very nice extensions low and high.
