Ahhhhh. . .so that's where Amazon got the blemished units they sell at a discount.  :wink_face:

 

Love the stories and always eagerly awaiting the next chapter. I am glad you guys didn't give up when the going got tough. Otherwise, I wouldn't have my AG2 that I can't get enough of.  :k701smile:

 

Thank you.
Dave

Yep, that and customer returns--all are sold on Amazon as "B stock" by us.

I'd like Schiit to make a portable DAC/amp. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

That's not going to happen! I remember Jason saying that they don't want to deal with the batteries and all the hoops you have to jump through to sell products with them.

I kinda expected that to be honest. Shame though. The free exposure when people are out in public with Schiit in their pockets and Schiit in their hands would be valuable. Never mind. I'll own Schiit someday.

I think the gorilla is screwing you if you find yourself in that situation! not the other way around...:L3000:

 

What happened at the trade show...I wanna know!

Tune in next wednesday for the next action packed episode full of moist brown that you'll love to read and share with your friends.

 

I wonder if Jason and purrin would.make a good double.

 

Jason's gear augmented with purrin's toilet paper mods.

Was it possible to get some form of restitution from the original metal suppliers ? The thought of them delivering a production run of vastly lower quality than the sample is appalling. I mean, why even bother with getting a sample made, if they are entitled to provide whatever quality they like at delivery ?

It sounds as though you kept that metal and built them up as "B Stock", but I hope the metal house at least gave you a substantial discount - I'm guessing these chassis were used as there was no "return for full refund" forthcoming ...

Edit: In fact, I'm guessing the idea of "return for full refund" is so alien to the inter-manufacturer dynamic, that you might still be laughing at the naively of this consumer. 😳
