Black Schiit! (Or, our supplier's mistake is your, um, benefit?)

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 

Hey all,

 

For a while now, some of you have been asking for black finish on our Schiit. And I've always said, "Nope, sorry, gotta keep it simple, we can have only one finish."

 

That is, until our metal supplier sent us some black chassis by mistake. For whatever reason, they decided to black powder-coat the chassis, rather than anodize the aluminum. At first, I was like, "Argh! Now they'll have to be stripped and anodized again!" 

 

And then I got to thinking: these actually look pretty cool. What if we just sold them as a limited run of black products?

 

So, our supplier's mistake is your gain, if you've been looking for black. To be perfectly clear, though, these are *not* anodized. They are powder-coated. It's a really neat, finely textured black powder, but you will not see the aluminum grain.

 

Other catches? All we received were Valhalla, Lyr, and Bifrost. That's it. 

 

So, if you've been interested in black, now's the time. When these are gone, they're gone. I still don't want to double our SKUs (industry-speak for number of products) for the foreseeable future. 

 

They're up on the site now.

 

All the best,

Jason

If this finish were available on the Mjolnir I would not be able to resist ordering!

Can your guys screw up and make some black Vali's also that would be great!! So tempted to just get the Valhalla now...

Put a black volume knob on that thing and it looks way better than the silver.

I actually have to disagree, the contrast is really nice.

You can have your Schiit in any color you want as long as it's black. :-)

How about some brown Schiit? :p

In all seriousness, I think that would look really cool.

I'm seriously considering ordering a Bifrost. That limited edition black is absolutely stunning. Just don't think of keeping it Jason I'll feel special if my DAC is a limited edition!

Shame, a black Lyr would be nice but I know they'll be sold out by the time I have the funds.

 

Not a big deal, though. :)
