If anything it would be corrupting their chain by introducing a $3 Chinese wall wart.

Yeah true, that 3$ Chinese wall-wart is a b****.

I'm surprised I haven't been bumped off yet for that comment. I felt like the wolves would be after me within seconds.

If that is the standard Schiit Wart, it's basically a transformer that delivers AC not one of those warts with a noisy switching regulator assembled by elves on the nightshift at a Chinese prison run by Foxconn. Yes, some of those factories are run like prisons.

Still, if you're that concerned about "upgrading" your USB port, you'd think you'd want to use a better power source.

I would hope, that differences in opinion would be met mutual respect here. I see no wrong with anything anyone here believes or does in regards to head-fi.

 

However, I will most assuredly bring sarcasm and my own flavor of humor here. Cause otherwise, I'd think it would be pretty boring reading the same thing over and over about how this and that made their music sound better.

I think the voltage regulator is in side the Schiit product not the wart which is just an external AC power transformer. The Wyrd is still ground connected between source and amp so ground loops and that kind of noise cannot be cured by this product.

Pst... so in response to the earlier LCD2 Schiit pairings mentioned (before all the weird wyrd schiit)...

 

I heartily recommend and invite you gents to step to the LCD2.2 on Mjolnir + Gungnir :o2smile:

 

I mean... Uberfrost with USB is pretty much darn close to the price of a Gungnir no? Same goes for Lyr with a few sets of tubes? :D

 

Just throwing a thought out there :popcorn:

post #6444 of 8007

I'm buying one this weekend to combine with my Gungnir because every once in a while I get this odd burping-like noise from my speakers even when no music is playing. This happens with the Gungnir and it did exactly the same with the Bryston BDA-1 so I'm hoping that the Wyrd will clean up this minor issue.

 

I don't believe for one second that Mr. Stoddard or Mr. Moffat brought this component to market without knowing for certain that it would function exactly as they claim. A normal USB hub could very well solve this issue too yet its highly unlikely that it would have a linear power supply, LM723 voltage regulators and a high quality crystal oscillator. Will that make a difference for the better in my system? I honestly don't know, but I will have the piece of mind of knowing that I did what I could (within reason) to supply my DAC with the cleanest USB signal possible.

 

Plus, I have no need for more USB inputs that a regular hub would provide so I don't mind at all paying more for the Wyrd and supporting one of my favorite audio gear manufacturers. If all it does is eliminate the odd noise I'm getting every once in a while I'll be pleased and anything beyond that is gravy.

I wouldn't go as far as saying I'm a real photograper, just something I do for fun. :biggrin: The TH900's are really comfortable, on par with HD 650's after their initial clamp has eased out. TH900 sounds wonderful, very refined and polite. First I was a bit underwhelmed by the overall bass impact, but put on the right track and it's a whole different animal. Can't help but to think these would benefit from a killer amp, but they sound very good as is.

Yah,,,nice set up indeed.  Beautiful picture and your th900 and momentum.  lovely.

Thanks! I enjoy them immensely much.

I look forward to reading about your experience and sonic impressions, it will be great to hear the findings of somebody who has actually heard the Wyrd in their system. I find it interesting when people can make pronouncements of truth based on their hypothetical beliefs, without experience/knowledge.

I just don't have so much space on my desk. On another hand, Bifrost/Asgard 2 stack fits perfectly...

And I'm extremely happy with its performance with LCD-2.

I had a chance to listen to the LCD 2 and LCD XC with my Bifrost / Lyr combo earlier this year. I will say that being my first time auditioning, I don't have much to compare the experience to but I'm not quite sure if I prefer the HE500 over the LCD 2. I wasn't too excited about listening to the LCD XC but the LCD 2 was fairly impressive with Jazz and okay with EDM. I prefer the HE500 with EDM... that bass, dear lord.

To be fair StanD as an electrical engineer has plenty of knowledge on the subject, Physics isn't really a hypothetical belief.

You don't have to visit the sun to know you would be vaporized attempting to stand on it.

I'd love to get the Valhalla 2, but it would cost me over 600 dollars to get it imported to sweden...
