Schiit Owners Unite - Page 357

post #5341 of 12183

Answering my own question here.. looks like forced 44.1->48 conversion was an issue with older AC'97 codecs only. Newest "HD Audio" spec doesn't convert to 48 KHz anymore.

i get the audio advisor catalog today, and in it, was a vahalla v2, says it now has a gain switch, and pre outs,

its not on the schiit, or AA website,

if its true, it might be worth a try, i heard it for the first time at the nashville meet, it sounded great with grado's and my lcd-x

Thank for the information, it has made me wait and see what the folks at Schiit audio are coming out with. Schiit Audio has announced two very nice high end units, One is the ragnarok and the others the yggdrasil, both sound awesome . Earlier this month audio advisor also listed a lyr V2, so it seems good things are afoot at Schiit audio:D

yeah, i'd seen the blurb about the lyr,  an improved version would be very cool !

and i'm past ready for the rag and yggdrasil to be released

Yes the ragnarok and the yggdrasil sound great however it will take a long time to save up . But hopefully I will get to check them out at future headphone meet.

Schiit has changed their business model in the last year or so.  In the past, they announced products they were going to release, but sometimes didn't make expected deadlines.  Now, they only announce products once they are ready to roll out.  Their statement gear was announced before this policy change.

right way to go...i don't like companies say some product is coming up, and then it takes forever to see the product.

Agreed, Duke Nukem, comes to mind from my past as one of the most infamous pieces of vaporware, took 12 years and it was terrible. 

 

Don't mind companies hinting as they get close to release, but early concept sharing almost never works out to be the same as the final product, so its somewhat counter productive in my opinion.  Especially once the hype train gets rolling, then you have to hear the train for years while waiting.

I like how Schiit sounds Norwegian and is from America. Schiit owners unite!

Guys, for future reference, political discussion isn't allowed on Head-Fi. I don't think I have to explain why. ;)

Anyone tried the lyr and Valhalla on the T1. Which sounded best?

I've only heard the Lyr with the T1. Don't remember which DAC, but it sounded fantastic.

Please mighty wizards at Schiit Audio please release the Lyr v2 and Valhalla v2 soon. I am in a state of unbound anticipation, like a hype dog awaiting his or hers owner.

I am curious what V2 features would be planned.

Variable gain and pre-outs.  Probably better specs, like lower THD.
