You might be on to something, that is, if you haven't read through this thread. tongue_smile.gif

Kim Kiddo, as this was your first post...download the PDF linked in the first post of this thread. Read the second-to-last sentence in the Afterword (bottom of page). Stop wondering.

And welcome to head-fi.

Well, I did read the last 16 pages and don't recall seeing a specific answer. I'll admit my brain ain't what it used to be though :)

 

I have a Mojo Stack (my name for the current top offerings from Schiit) as well as an upgraded Bifrost. All great Schiit!

The PDF's short but worth reading, with the usual schiit humor.

Can't remember whether this or the Schiit owners unite thread, but Jason seems pretty sure there'll be intermediate products - no "super statements" as he put it in the release.

Gotcha, found it. I guess I'll go find another thread to misunderstand and fire off a few more stupid questions. :)

 

Thanks for the welcome. I read quite a bit here but yes, that was my first post. So I'll take this opportunity to say "Hi" to everyone.

 

 

HI

 

 

 

Kim

There's gonna be the intermediate product. Which is their solution for DSD.

No problem. New head-fiers sometimes get a 'warm' welcome (much warmer than you got here), as in 'bring flame suit'.

Tread carefully for a while, and don't ever take anything personally. It's worth it. Lots of good info (and hype!) and helpful people around.

Sure.
To hell with reliability, warranty, running a business and making a profit.

Seems it'll be a standalone component.

Yes, these two products are as high end as they are going.  Apparently, there will be more intermediate products (and I would assume further iterations of their lower line products).

 

So happy they are direct to consumer with simple chassis design.  Would easily cost double if they were more traditional.

I believe Jason stated in another thread that Schiit DSD capability will be a software/driver upgrade for existing upgraded USB optioned DACs, with no new hardware required.
