I like the sound of this, can anyone explain it any further?:
"microprocessor control of quiescent current and DC levels"
I know, i Know. Its just that when i see this i get that strange feeling like im falling in love, and i must resist! :D.
I already got the asgard so im just missing a DAC, but i got no idea on anything DAC related, so for me its more the reputation that says that this is far better than the Bifrost, or the Gungnir :D.
And also remember the other nice thing about Schiit: as this statement gear is released, that statement technology is going to (probably) quickly trickle down into their more affordable-bracket gear. This is why I may very well be upgrading to the Gungnir later this year. Just as I get to a point where I really settle in on Gungnir's sound, Schiit might be right around the corner from releasing an upgraded DAC board or analog output board for the Gungnir using some of the statement technology.
This is what really makes buying into Schiit such an exciting venture...there's always going to be something to look forward to. A lot of other companies just make minor tweaks to their gear and market it to be something better. Schiit is very much about innovation and pushing that price-to-performance boundary. I have a feeling I will always have a piece of Schiit in my system, for as long as I'm in this audio game
I've not discredited Self's designs, I'm simply not declaring either the better piece of gear. That is, not until I've heard the Rag.
Automatically assuming the Schiit gear would lose is ignorant, if you're not ignoring Jason and team's experience and prior offering's. That's all I'm saying.
Nelson Pass would agree with this.
