Still the same...intermittent connection : (

 

Should I just bring it into the service centre and check it out? this is not even a day old!

Is it a USB 3.0 port by chance?  Many DACs seem to dislike USB 3.0.

I would send an email to Schiit tech support. They probably have seen this before and would know what to do.

Yeah, even while using the same chip, they've saved the higher end USB spec for more expensive models.

They actually are different. AKM4396 for Modi and AKM4399 for Bifrost.  The Modi is meant to be simple to use and no drivers to have to support.

I meant the USB chip (C-Media CM6631A).

They are excellent for developing one's neck muscles.:D 

Head-fiers should try some Ortho's at some time. Alot of difference from dynamic drivers. The Ortho's are very heavy! Hope you enjoy the HE-500!

Yeah, that's what scares me, I'm spoiled by weightless HD6xx series. At the same time I'm tempted to hear something new.

I listen to them and my HD600's everyday.

Look into the HE-560's. They're half the weight of the HE-500's.

Why isn't it on HiFiMAN's website? Where do you normally buy them?

They haven't been released yet, though they are supposed to be coming out very soon.

Yes, they are Usb3.0 ports. Is it possible to buy some sort of adaptor to make it seem like a Usb2.0?
