Hmm, reading the Sage/Freya page made me realize something...
Yes, Remote Control Included
When you’re talking about gear that doesn’t sit on your desktop (like our headphone amps), you need the convenience of remote control for volume, input switching, output switching
Doesn't this mean the current desktop DACs are a bit awkward to use with the preamps?
In my setup I have 3 sources, which through the right combinations of converters, fits perfectly into a Modi Uber. But if I got a preamp for the volume control for a 2 channel setup, then I'd have to get up every time I switched sources.
This problem goes for the entire DAC line right now. I could solve this with 3 Modis, but that gets even more silly if I wanted a Gungnir Multibit.
This could be solved with, moar products
If Schiit came out with a 5 arm Cthulu and single input DACs, then we could get 5 cheaper DACs with exactly the right input you need.
The new products would cover
That would mean 10 new DACs plus a new DAC Cthulu. If designed right the input side could be upgradable, since the preamp inside the DAC stays the same for the same output. This would reduce the number of products down to 1? You could call it the same product, but with different input/output combinations
I would hope if they did this it would all be multibit from the start.
