Jason's stated before that it's fine to stack them with the included feet as long as the amp's on top, I do so with my Bifrost and Asgard and have had no issues. Both my Bifrost and Asgard came with the little stick-on feet, sounds like a mistake that your Bifrost did not.

Plenty of people here including myself stack Bifrost and Lyr. I can't honestly say the Lyr runs any hotter whether it's stacked or not. The Bifrost certainly feels warmer when stacked
because it's dissipating heat. My Bifrost also didn't come with feet, after contacting Jason he immediately sent out a pair. So ask him!
Sweeet.. I suppose its my fault for not reading enough (and i did a lot of reading). I also stack them, however, I do feel there will be better cooling if I put some cones between them. I'LL probably order these cones cos they seem reasonably priced, not sure if they are any good though. They will certainly help cooling and slightly reduce vibration going to the tubes from my hand-drumming on the desk. Btw, I got my Schiit gear second hand (very lightly used) so I wasnt sure if the Bifrost is supposed to have legs anyway. From what I saw in Dubai Audio Centre when I was auditioning them, the Bifrost didnt have any.
Can you guys recommend another reasonably priced but better option for cones? I also plan on getting some socket savers and tube dampers. What would the Schiit guys make of that? Is it normally recommendable?
