Of course, you mean a Jason and thousand beliebers, I mean fans. ;)

 

On a more serious note: the moderators may want to describe how they view this thread and the use of it a bit better before moving relevant on-topic discussion to other threads, which Jason Stoddard himself may not notice.

Agree that clarity is needed, personally I favour at least some interaction on this thread, even if it is limited to clarifications and explorations and directly related stories. I wouldn't want this to become a monologue.

 

Anyone who has difficulty finding Jason's narrative could take the simple expedient of going to the first post and using the hyperlinks therein. Anyone who wants to read the story only is then just a couple of clicks away from it.

What would you like to see Schiit make next?

 

Someone (apologies, forgot your name) posted their desire for a Schiit ADC (analog to digital converter, for ripping LPs or live recording.)

That's a great idea - I'd buy one. And how hard would it be? Just rotate the cards in the Yggdrasil 180 degrees, right? :D

 

Then a Schiit phono stage. Another item I'd scoop up immediately. And, Jason, if you're debating tubes vs. solid state, my vote is for glass. Tubes and analog just go together. Schiit could even put the ADC and the phono pre together. Except that Schiit wouldn't, their design ethos being more Bowie Knife than Swiss Army Knife.  Schiit won't put two functions on one chassis, especially if one is analog and the other digital. But they might want to rethink that when they make...

 

a portable. Schiit must build a portable just so they can call it the Skidbladnir. (Am I the first to suggest this? Hope so.) It could be an amp, a DAC/amp, or, ideally, a DAP. I'll bet Schiit could make a DAP that would slay the AK240 for a fourth of that unit's ludicrous price.

 

Or should we just leave them alone until the Ragnarok and the Yggdrasil are properly launched?

 

No need to thank me, Jason. Always happy to make more work for other people.

I would love to see a Tube DAC!

Classic. Made me spit a little coffee. :smile:

 

Personally, I would love to see a balanced Lyr, with 4 tubes, in a larger enclosure like the Mjolnir.

 

THAT would be the Schiit.

Just got here, and this story is fantastic so far. Looking forward to more.

 

(And I had no trouble following the links in the first post to skip the responses and get right to the chapters.)

Once all the chapters are published, a new thread without all the extraneous comments (including mne) would be appreciated.  :)

The first post Jason put in this thread has direct links to all of the chapters so one can bypass all the the extraneous Schiit and get right to the real Schiit.

Agreed. If it's supposed to be a blog from Jason, then other posters shouldn't be allowed, period.

In that light, one might consider anything except Jason's posts to be off topic.

This is such an inspirational story from Jason and I hope that it motivates others with the know how that might have been afraid to take a risk.  I also really appreciate that Schiit tackled the challenge of making all their products in the USA.  I wish more companies would go out of their way to help out the American economy in this way.  Furthermore their chassis design is ingenious, and I love their commitment to using discreet circuits.  Something that I would love to see from Schiit or any other DAC manufacturer would be an ADC or an audio interface of some sort that is affordable as mentioned in 45longcolt's post.  Because most of the cheaper "professional" audio interfaces have way more inputs than somebody who just wants to rip vinyl or hook up a mic to the computer needs and the converters are really not that good on the USB powered models in particular.  These interfaces always seem to feel the need to put in their own crappy mic pre amps as well.  But if you want to get something that has really good converters from a company like Apogee or Prism it costs thousands of dollars.

 

I don't know if their is even enough interest for a product like this, but it would be really awesome if there was a DAC that was also and ADC with maybe just a pair of se inputs and/or a pair of balanced inputs.

 I'd be all over that, too.  I'm still months away from a new amp purchase, but if this actually were to be in the works I'd wait on any new purchase until this was released (ahem, Jason).
