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

    Fortunately Amazon in Australia is pretty rubbishy, I think some people put products on there using the idea that - Amazon is the best price - to try and sell stuff at inflated prices. I recently bought something from an Australian ebay store for $27, on Amazon people were trying to sell the...

    Yet Jason himself used it only 10 days ago :open_mouth: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/schiit-happened-the-story-of-the-worlds-most-improbable-start-up.701900/page-3476#post-15251494 weeks after he asked people not to :disappointed: "Rggy" was never a thing, only 3 people have ever used the...

    RAAL SR1a don't use a 1/4" headphone jack, so the Jotunheim R doesn't provide one.:confused:

    The linked Swissonic Converter AD 24/192 doesn't appear to have a USB output which would make it a poor Jil replacement for recording analog to PCM in a PC. A Focusrite scarlett 2i2 might be a much better bet (cheaper than a Jil and works as a DAC as well).

    I think the PCB layout was OK, he just used Australian switches by mistake. :upside_down:

    As you say the link refers to older high end Naim DACs, they used the expensive PCM1704 (multibit) DAC chip with a Naim DSP upsampling Filter, the Uniti Nova has the DSP but uses a PCM1792A "advanced segment" DAC (like my STX sound card :ksc75smile:) the Uniti Atom uses the lower spec PCM1791A...

    You obviously need some High Fidelity Cables with "Magnetic Conduction" technology https://www.highfidelitycables.com/ :rolling_eyes: :smile::sweat_smile::laughing::joy:

    The RAAL SR1a are very low impedance, a load of 0.2 Ohms (mostly supplied by the cable). To get the necessary current from a normal amplifier it would need to be able to supply 100 W + into the 5.6 Ohm load of their Ribbon/Amp Interface . The amplifier Jason is doing is designed to supply the...

    You can add a DAC HAT to the Pi, of course. To be an endpoint, for example see: https://roonlabs.com/partners/hifiberry.html google raspberry pi as roon endpoint for more

    I was wondering why I was a Schiit fan, and then it hit me :face_palm:

    I was going to advise against reading the review, maybe treat it as a TLDR. When I looked up the reviewer I was saddened to learn he died earlier this year. https://www.newstimes.com/local/article/Body-recovered-from-Lake-Carmel-ID-d-as-Redding-14116078.php
