    Burson Composer 3X Performance (ESS9038, DSD512, Bluetooth, balanced output...)

    If you use RCA out on this DAC does the signal go through the Op Amp stages, or is that just for XLR out?

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

    Hi all, I'm just trying to wrap my head around a problem I've had with two Schiit products. I'd like to find a solution for this as I love the way they both sound.. Both my Asgard 3 and Bifrost 2 transformer inside the unit buzzes / hums, all the noise is emitting from the transformer itself...

    Is the Aeolus going to replace the LCD2? :p

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Ah, cool. I need to buy some new mesh then. My bop filters drive me nuts with the poping and catching on my earpads (they started ripping through the mesh on my earpads). I recently bought a replacement bop filter mesh, haven't gotten them just yet as they were forwarded to me, but I'm guessing...

    Makes total sense. Seems like more neutralish tubes is the bees knees with Aeolus - Valhalla 2, SW51+, Haggerman Tubba, etc etc

    ZMF Verite

    Maybe! Depends on the foam. I clean my Sennheiser pads like this every 4 months and it doesn't accelerate the wear. Just have to be gentle with the foam inside.

    ZMF Verite

    If anyone's curious on cleaning suede ZMF pads, I completely submerged mine in a bucket with a small amount of laundry detergent. Gave them a decent washdown and shake in the bucket, than ran another two buckets of water soaking them until I felt like they were clean. I then brushed the nep of...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Honestly the differences between amps and dacs are subtle to most people, but once you get into the hobby those small differences make a big difference, if that makes sense. To me, if the Valhalla 2 has more separation, more refinement and more bass slam - that's a big difference to me and...

    ZMF Verite

    Any thoughts on cleaning ZMF suede pads? I think mine are getting a little musty smelling, I gave them a wipe down with unscented baby wipes, but I think they need a full bath...

    I don't know if it was the amp, as this was out of a Ampsandsound Mogwai, but a Verite Closed sounded like a darn good upgrade to my Aeolus. Had the smootness of the Aeolus and just a bit more stage and rich sound. I was able to A/B test between my Aeolus and VC.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    Ah, ok. Mine should ship soonish then. I've been using the AK DAC inside my Asgard 3 since I started this hobby couple years ago. Maybe I'll notice a difference upgrading!

    Yea Sapele is brilliant. Mine has these really light honey colored spots that just look awesome against the dark grain.

    Just curious, have you been using stock pads or universe perf suede?

    The pad convo has me a bit confused - Does the Aeolus now ship with a different pad? Or does the Aeolus still ship with the same old pad, but that pad isn't sold sperately?
