    That's a crazy shipping and import charge. In the US with Amazon Prime, it is free one day shipping.

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

    I have ripped over 2000 CD with theses work horses.: https://www.amazon.com/LG-GE24NU40-Super-External-Rewriter/dp/B00C4401UO Highly recommended.

    You have reminded me of a must: if your are using a laptop, use a good external drive for ripping.

    DBPowerAmp has that and more. I got tired of the DIY Garage Shop setup of EAC everytime I got a new PC. I used EAC for years and notice no sound difference with DBPowerAmp. DBPowerAmp is so much easier to use with no guesswork.

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    Doesn't matter if Tung-Sol or JJ. Current production 6SN7 are average at best. But Schiit needs to offer something if people want a complete product. But they should also offer a tubeless option. Then no complaints. For me, NOS is the way to go.

    Here's where I read about the Lansdale tall (Frankie) 7N7 being made by Sylvania: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/schiit-lyr-3-tube-rolling-thread.876016/page-226 But it is the internet.

    I should have looked at your list closer. I have read that the Lansdale was made by Sylvania. I have the short Sylvania 7N7. Good tube. This is the first time I have heard of someone buying tubes by the pound. Smart move when you have a tube tester.

    Have you ever tried the 6SN7 variants: 6F8G, 6C8G and 7N7?

    They look very cool, but they better be the best sounding 6SN7 ever at the prices they are selling for. I can buy matched 6F8Gs for much less money.

    The best way to convert is via quality 1:1 transformers: https://www.cs1.net/products/jensen_transformers/PO-2RX.htm

    The New Schiit Audio Yggdrasil Impressions thread (read the first post)

    My previous PC to DAC connection was via Eitr with a Neutrik SPDIF to AES transformer adapter. With GEN5 USB, I could not tell a difference between the two, so I use USB since it just involves a cable. My interest was in AOIP, but no more.

    Thanks for the advice. You just ruled out AOIP for me. I have every sample rate between 44 and 192 in my library. I must have auto switching. I will be patient and wait for Unison.

    What is the easiest way to replace my current USB connection with AOIP with an AES connection to my DAC? I don't want to task you with providing every detail, but it is not clear to me what SW and HW is needed. Thanks.
