I know they do, I had to RMA part of my Magni/Modi stack (tbh don't remember which one) and they have some of the best support I've ever used. I'll continue buying Schiit because of how great of an experience I had.

Thank you!

Yes, unless you are combatting a ground loop or noise, a properly terminated 75ohm RCA cable is preferred in my experience as many others.

I once took the volume knob off my Lyr, and when I reattached it, I let it slide too far on the shaft to the point that it was scraping against the faceplate. So it was hard to turn. If you can loosen that setscrew and try pulling the knob out just a tiny bit, that could potentially solve the problem. From your description, whoever had it before you wasn't exactly a brain surgeon (stripped screws?) and there's no stop on the volume shaft. Good Luck.

Anyone have experience buying from Schiit-europe.com? I put my order on Asgard 2 a week ago and haven't heard anything from them since.

This looks fishy.

I thought the only way to get the know to be smooth was to remove the frame and adjust the whole unit. But I contacted and all I had to do is use a 1/16" allan key to loosen the know and move it outward which I didn't know about until I contacted Schiit. All good and smooth now

Did you look at Schiit's international page on their FAQ? I don't see Schiit-Europe as one of their authorized dealers anywhere.

Yeah, I hope you didn't pay your order already. I recommend ordering straight from Schiit. I got my order in 4 days to Europe.

But now you know... (and knowing is half the battle)

This can be said for a great deal of things on here

I was starting to get a bit worried, but turns out Schiit-Europe is some kind of sub-page for Sonority Audio, which is listed in Schiit's official webpage. Anyway, I paid with paypal so there shouldn't be any problems getting my money back if problems rise. I'll get in touch with them tomorrow about delivery times.

Good thing about Paypal is they save you from Schiity deals.

I ordered a Lyr 2 last week from Schiit-Europe. I was told that it takes up to three weeks until delivery. I think there will be no problems because Sonority Audio is listed as a dealer on the Schiit homepage.

Has Jason released any specs for the phono preamp?

 

Also, Cambridge has on their USB d/a converters a lift/ground switch. Why doesn't switch do this instead of making an entirely separate device with (I'm assuming) has very little inside?

What's switch? 

 

My Parasound amps have a Ground Lift switch, but I always leave the Ground connected....haven't heard any difference with it lifted and I haven't had any ground-loop problems thus far.
