Glad you got to talk to Alex as he's a super nice dude. I'm also glad he gave a soft figure of under the $2k mark. With 2 products going end of life

it really seems impossible to know what direction the Schiit team has had to take and how that would affect projected costs.

 

All I know is I'm extremely excited to see how the DAC turns out. Oh, and yea, the amp, too. biggrin.gif

looking forward to the statement DAC.  i'm in the market to pick something up under 2k within the next year

Oh Schiit.

 

With that set of features, I'm having second guesses about my decision not to buy the statement amp but be "done" with Mjolnir and the statement DAC. Of course, I'm interested in how much of a difference in sound there will now be between the Mjolnir and statement amp. On that point, please Jason, enlighten us!

YES! Now a proud owner of a Schiit Bifrost and Valhalla.  Just wish I didn't have to wait on the mailman, considering I could drive to their HQ in like 20 minutes...

Without going into detail, I commend Schiit and Jason for highest ethics and customer service! But you probably already knew that....regular_smile%20.gif

Very nice--congratulations! What drove your choice between the Valhalla and the Lyr?

Is there a device that has the same functionality as the Apple Airport Express or AppleTV, except the S/PDIF optical handles 24/96 ?

 

EDIT: Audio use only

 $100 and the fact that I'm only going to be driving high ohm Beyers and, potentially, Sennheisers in the future.

I'm seriously considering a Magni/Modi combo as my first headphone DAC/Amp.

 

I just like what I see about the company and I like how simple and solid the units look.

 

 

Right now, my first (only) pair of headphones are AT ATH-M50's, and I'm sure the combo will sound great. I'm wondering how the Magni/Modi combo will do in the future when I buy some additional headphones.

Depends by what you mean by functionality. There's the SBT.

WiFi Box > S/PDIS Optical 24/96 > Bifrost > Lyr.

Access my iTunes Library via WiFi.   "AirPlay"

 

Right now I have to use my MacBook Pro to connect to the MacMini music server.

 

I could replace the MacBook Pro with either an Airport Extreme or an AppleTv but they are only 16 bit 48kHz

I guess that all depends on how much 24/96 material you have. And again, there's the SBT which will play those sample rates.

Looks like Logitech doesn't make Squeezebox products any longer.
