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

    I'll bring Tyr. Still green board prototype, but red board production is here...at least you can see why this is totally, totally insane.

    I'm open to having something in Florida! (Disclaimer: would have to figure out logistics...I am not that person though.)

    Actually, that's not quite what the new acknowledgements said. Here's what they actually are--three checkboxes before you complete your order: ( ) I understand the item with the longest backorder sets the ship date for my entire order. Example: if four items are 1-3 days and one is 6-8 weeks...

    I'm sorry you are disappointed, but sending Freya in for repair would not take weeks or months. Our typical service turnaround is one business day. We receive packages every week for international service, including from our distributors. We have made a specific point to have a distributor...

    Just to confirm: I like BBQ of all types. I even like the BBQ I make on my genuine stickercharged made-in-Oklahoma-with-welders-and-hammers Cookshack PG500 and Cookshack Americue. Yeah, I don't name them. I just use them. After a misadventure with another brand wanting to get into the pellet...

    Apple Lossless and Amazon HD new pricing (still not sure about sound quality--I need to re-evaluate their player and see if it has improved), and soon, Spotify lossless are all great news--more options that aren't lossy-hiding-in-lossless packaging maybe-defacto-music-takeover maybe-kinda-sorta...

    HP-71 was not RPN, which is one reason nobody remembers it. Also too expensive.

    As I've said before, there is zero evidence of customer "analysis paralysis" with our current line--most people want more options. Like Freya S. Also some people want Camaros, but they're not making those at all, so Chevy can make more trucks. This is a weird year--the only certainty is we'll...

    I used an HP-71, but nobody knows what those are anymore.

    Dither can be added by the APx when we test DACs, but it is usually baked in. We do our own specific algorithm with a whole lot of special tricks within the DSP filter of our True Multibit DACs. Early versions did not dither, and measured worse when fed a test signal. Mike and Dave had many...

    Bingo. Mjolnir 2 is gone, sorry. Sol may be next--we've turned off ordering while we are filling current backorders so we can catch up. Long delays on some parts mean we don't have firm date when ordering can resume. It may be 6+ months out. Sorry, things are crazy right now, and getting...

    That was a B-stock order that looks like we ended up not having enough stock for. If you are out money from that, email orders@schiit.com and have them send you a refund, or apply the credit to the new order.

    Your order was NOT charged--we do not charge credit card orders before they ship, as explained in our FAQ: Do you charge my card immediately, or when you ship? We won’t charge your order before we ship, though we will authorize your card when you submit your order. The hold on your funds should...

    2021, Chapter 6: Measurements II, The Sequel This is the long-awaited follow-up to Measurements (with a Side Order of Sanity), a chapter published back in the dim dark ages of 2015, only shortly after the earth cooled. When I wrote Measurements (with a Side Order of Sanity), most people...
