Dude...a real photographer and Schiit.  I'm thinking of swapping my LCD-XC's for theTH900's (mostly for fit).  How are the TH900's on that setup?

My wife comes in and her face is like: :eek:

 

"Don't tell me you wanna buy these?? For 2K??"

I said: "NO WAY!" :ph34r:

 

So in 2 days I'm silently ordering... LCD-2 for under 1K.

 

Next day my wife seeing the bank statement:

 

"So... you got them afterall!!... *sighs*"

 

And I reply: "But hey, see, I saved us almost $1000!!" 

 

I love my wife...

That won't work on my wife!  :confused_face:

If you're expecting improvements in SQ, this is what Schiit says on their FAQ page on this.

 

Sonic benefits? That’s a lot of hoo-ha!
You’re right. There’s no reason this should make any system sound better. Although we can measure the difference in USB power supply noise, it really shouldn’t matter. Despite this, some listeners have said that there are sonic benefits from using Wyrd. Us, we remain Swiss on the matter—we don’t do the hard sell by promising sonic nirvana.

I'd like to know the difference in sound between the Valhalla and Asgard 2.   How long is it ok to  keep the valhalla running for?  Sometimes I'm at the computer for 30 minutes and sometimes I'm on it for over 12 hours.  I don't want to  hurt the Valhalla by keeping it on that long so I go between that and my asus stx soundcard every couple of hours.

The tubes on Valhalla are going to burn out eventually whether you you take care of them or not (although you can maximize their life with some care). The rest of the amp should be fine, so you'll just need a new set of tubes when the burnout happens.

It won't hurt the Valhalla! It's made to be used and enjoyed. After thousands of hours, pop in a new set of tubes. They're a whole $40, from Schiit. Then enjoy Valhalla again til you're old and deaf.

Yes, with the Modi or iFi iDSD Nano, blacker background, improved soundstage, tonality, slight, but clearly audible.

Have you tried one in your system?

I predict a protesting response from Stan D in 3,2,1....

but still we are after people with first hand experience quoting their thoughts on the real item.

If Stan D has actually tried one, in his system, perhaps he has a valid point.

As per Bill's request. :D

 

If one understands how this works, they would know what it's used for. If your source has a noisey USB power supply it might have value. As for improving SQ or soundstage, Schiit pretty much says, nope.

This is a simple matter, you don't have to try it unless you are experiencing noise from a USB source. Below I will once more, repeat the quote from Schiit's FAQ on the Wyrd. If one enjoys the product, continue doing so, I wouldn't stop anyone.

So here's Schiit's statement, believe it or not. Make your own decision.
