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

    Mike, in the other thread, mentions he likes unison out to unison in to move digital data now. Since we're talking new product requests, would you folks consider marketing a computer card with an unison out on it? Most of my Cd's are already ripped. I'd need this card much more than I need a...

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

    Thanks to English fish and chips, GB is one of the few place where newspaper makers have not suffered. Not publishers...the papers are still not read, but I'm convinced 90% + of English newspaper is used to cover greasy fish and chips. For you vinegar aficionados, I think malt vinegar is mandatory.

    I've heard mesquite is the superior choice for SQ, but that may be the Texan in me talking. Maybe I just like the smoky flavor it adds to my blues. :) Here in Georgia pecan is my new fave wood. Peach trees are yesterdays wood. Maple is supposed to be a better choice for sound but I prefer...

    Mike and Jason were years ahead of this discussion. When you turn your gear around to look at all these pretty cables, Voila, the power switch is in the front!

    I had a 69 MG Midget. Replaced the SU carbs with a four barrel Weber. I'm not sure which changed more, the ease of service (up) or the gas mileage (down).

    Thanks. The Adcom has been a member of my audio family for better than 25 years. For less than $300 I'll likely get the monoblocks and fix the Adcom.

    The pre-amp would be either the Schitt Freya (orig) or an Audio Research LS-15 both balanced, and ty Sir for the response..

    I apologize, I'd like to hijack the tread for few posts..no cats, no coffee. My speaker amp has failed,. it was an Adcom 555 Mk2. I've had it since 1990, but the quotes to fix are about 1000 dollars. My speakers are Legacy Signatures 3's. Their posted impedance.. sigh 4 ohms. The sensitivity...

    BEST $3,000 Amp/DAC that money can buy in your opinion?

    Yggdrasil and Mjolnir 2 (MJ2) would be slightly over budget at $3150. MJ2 and a Gungnir MB dac would be 2100 ish. Gungnir MB and a Ragnarok would be 2950. All the combinations would be balanced the entire path. The entire Schiit line offers great "bang for the buck" in my opinion.

    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    I've been chasing High Fidelity (with the definition of fidelity being " the degree of exactness with which something is copied or reproduced") for a long time. I'll buy a MP when it come out of course, but it will seem odd that the goal isn't hearing exactly what was recorded.

    Fiio X5 3rd gen || 2x AKM 4490 || Balanced Out || DSD || DXD | DTS | Android || Dual Card Slot

    An update to my prior post. I rescanned and the x5 reported no new songs...however on playing a song randomly, it showed song 1086 out of 12230, the correct number. I don't know why it reported 5800 the first time it scanned, but it sees all the songs now.

    Similar problems here. 5800 out of 12000 or so. Given the numbers I got it looks like only 1 of the 2 mSD cards was scanned.
