New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil - Page 64

post #946 of 9301

Yes, big thanks Jason, for both the update and bringing the thread back on topic. :beerchug:

 

Now that you're at this stage of development for Ragnarok, is there any change (or finalization) in pricing? I remember the ballpark figure quoted before, is it likely to stay within that range, give or take x-dollars? Cheers!

Awesome, thanks for the update Jason - looks like things are on track. I'm one of those waiting for the Ygg to land, looking forward to it! :beerchug:

+1 on the Yggdrasil, that one I will be watching like a hawk.

The appeal of course is that most of those who prefer this medium do so because they can steal their music. Individuals with taste and musical education however would find it impossible to find select music with acceptable sound quality through such means. 

 

Wow - moving straight on from people not using their physical CD/Vinyl collections being "homeless" to this utter tripe.  Someday I hope you will understand that people who choose to listen to their music differently from you are not the ignorant peasants you paint them as being.

 

PS.  Jason, do you have any rough idea at this stage of how long the tube "module" or hybrid version of the Rag will take to develop ?

How long could it possibly take to glue a lightbulb to a metal box?  I'm guessing middle of March.

 

Of course, I've let me engineering skills lapse a bit...

The appeal of course is that most of those who prefer this medium do so because they can steal their music. Individuals with taste and musical education however would find it impossible to find select music with acceptable sound quality through such means. This would take us back to purchasing the music, which again in downloaded form is downright inferior in every possible way. It often costs the same if not more than a CD, and you get nothing tangible in return and must even provide the storage medium at your own cost.

 

Then there is the whole ritual of listening to music. If you listen to garbage while doing email or surfing the web, all of this makes no difference to you. I prefer my CD player and playback equipment along with the listening experience to be disconnected from everything else.

 

A record collection (and personal library) is something real and abiding that tells a story of what your musical and intellectual development has been. What else will you keep and use fifty years from now, if not records and books? Computers, internet formats, and fleeting, fashionable technology on the other hand are the very definition of disposable. They cheapen and debase everything they touch.

OMG

We do not collect downloaded mp3s. We collect CDs, DVDs, BRDs, rip them on an Hard Disk and playback them from there. We also pay the download of HD audio files.

You know, Hard Disk playback offers not only higher quality playback, compared to optical devices, but also gives a much more comfortable and quick access to our (giant) libraries.

My CDs and DVDs stand proudly on their shelves, but looking for them anytime I want to play one and putting them away and switch etc, is a pain in the arse when you have really a lot of CDs.

Hey all,

 

Making a hybrid Ragnarok is a completely different beast--different transformers, different power supplies, different chassis, different boards (at least in 3 cases.) Don't hold your breath on that one. If it's available by summer, I'd be very surprised. More likely much later.

 

All the best,

Jason

(Que sarcasm) I guess I'll have to settle for solid state. (End sarcasm)

Solid state actually works better for me in the setup I'm planning for the Ragnorok. I just like tubes too much. smily_headphones1.gif

I guess I'll have to sell my glue and return those lightbulbs. 

 

When are you guys going to develop some headphones?  Make them black and large and call them Huginn and Muninn.  And a cable for Yggdrasil called Ratatoskr.

 

Okay, okay.. I'm done.

Looks like Rag and Yggy are happening in a matter of couple of months. I'm excited. :atsmile:

Excitement aside, can we all please agree not to call them by diminutives ending in -y?  No "yggy" or "raggy" or anything like that, please.

Why should I agree? What are you offering me? I doubt you can pay me enough for me to stop saying Schiit Rag. Hahaha

post #958 of 9301

rag is fine.  it's the -y that I can't stand.

post #959 of 9301

Yggi was my idea. The Rag is unstoppable. No 'Y' endings there. The  end of the world is nigh.
