Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up - Page 194

post #2896 of 2901

Beta Testing , 

 

The little headphone Manufacturers are seeming to get on the Bandwagon of sending out pre-release Beta product to us Head-Fi hobbyists , presumably resulting in a little review posting on sites like this , I get the impression that the Manufacturers trust us Hobbyists more than they rely on traditional Professional Reviewers , a few honest comments probably go a long way in creating a good Buzz amongst serial buyers of this kind of merchandise .  

  I for one , will put my name in the hat for the new Sennheiser HD800 mk2 pre-evaluation offering , if one comes about !  

  One more win for the Internet Channel .

ps. there-in may be a useful solution to my MSB DAC problem :  don't worry , it's a Beta Test Sample .  See , problem worked out well , after all .

Normally when I see this many posts in a day, I expect Mr Stoddard to have posted another chapter...

Damn enough with the marriage counseling already, everyone's relationship is different and no one here has the right to voice their opinion of someone else's marriage.

That is awesome news.

Now all I have to do is sell some recording studio time to fund the Ygg and Rag and sell the VTL at some point.

 

...and one thing I forgot in my previous post.

5) "Measures flat frequency response"

I had my ears tested recently (work requirement). The response is definitely way more lumpy than the average road through the African Jungle.

May have to do with: Working as a DJ as a teen, addiction to HiFi, Playing electric Guitar in a band and standing next to the snare drum, starting to play bass.

I have not a lot of high frequency left. But there are some frequencies that really grate, maybe the ear/brain is (over)compensating.

Unfortunately when my wife tries to sing she can always find that frequency. Possibly because she always uses "head voice" so its a bit squeaky at best.

(I hate sopranos usually too). I will have to teach her to use chest voice (which she has a more than adequate chest for). But she could not hit a note if she had a baseball bat.

I now have tinnitus too.

So my idea of what sounds good is unlikely to match perfectly flat and may be the inverse of a spotty teenagers view. Although we probably both like to feel the bass.

 

Tonight I am going to try Gungnir in the studio and probably compare the USB & SPDIF outputs (can have the same source routed to both and switch)

 

Was probably a good thing that the DAC in a toilet roll idea was Schitt-canned.
