FWIW, I've had this happen on my "real" MacBook Pro retina, both directly from it and through a powered hub. With several DACs. But I imagine it would solve this issue.

I too am a huge supporter of Schiit products and I appreciate their ethos as well-lets re-ignite the audiophile community and make high quality sound affordable and available to all! 

I own a fully upgraded Bifrost paired with the Lyr with EAT ECC-88 Cool Valves rolled into the picture. I listen with Audeze LCD-2 and a Moon-Audio Silver Dragon V3.  I say unhesitatingly that the sound experience is heavenly- I can die a happy man!  I have no need for any social interaction because of my sound system.  

Does anyone have any info/updates on new product info from Schiit-especially Ragnarok consumer availability.

Thanks Cory. My order is going in.

Ok I got an answer on this. Jason said,

"Most likely not. It would really change the power supply on the existing products."

No big deal to me! If it had been an upgrade feature, it probably would have cost just as much anyway.

I'll also be a guinnea pig smily_headphones1.gif

Yeah, except I cannot find it on the product page of Schitt's website.

Look harder where ?  Looking harder on the Products page won't help him, nor will looking on the Schiit "news" page. Perhaps you could be of help, rather than just saying "You're doing it wrong " ?

Anyone have any information on the design of the Wyrd compared to the iFi iUSB?

Going from my MacBook Pro through Dragonfly to the Magni to my HD650's isn't as impressive as the Magni/Modi P7 combo is.  Not that it's a slouch, but the P7's I can only take 1/3 of the power of the Magni.  I have it turned up to 100% with the HD650.  Turning it down to about 80% sounds better, but I've now decided I'd rather the Lyr than the Valhalla. smily_headphones1.gif

How much of the sound quality comes from the DAC?  If I got a Lyr and kept using my Dragonfly as the output would it sound much better, or would I be better served to carry my Modi back and forth until I can get a Bifrost?

Now to find a powerstrip or something I can use at work to see if I can fix this.  If not this is really of little use to me.  I wanted it for work to power my P7's, not for home with my HD650.

Edit: I had my MacBook turned up to 100%, but iTunes was not.  Now with it at 100%, I can only take about 50% of the Magni. smily_headphones1.gif  And it smokes my Onkyo home theater receiver headphone out. smily_headphones1.gif

So what is recommended on a $300-500 "Father's Day" ticket?

A Lyr 2 of course, though not to make your decision more difficult the Valhalla 2 puts out 880 mW into the 650's 300 ohms 😳

That's one Vodka Lassi too many. You should stop at 999 :blink:  or risk getting Schiit faced.
