    Why yes, we are entirely Fulla Schiit.

    As mentioned in my post, I am looking for a portable hub, not an AC powered one.

    Why yes, we are entirely Fulla Schiit.

    Could you direct me to a portable USB hub that would be compatible with this? I plan on plugging it into an Android phone.

    Nordost Heimdall headphone cable

      Thanks! I feel the same way about Cardas vs Nordost for other cables, just have not heard the Cardas headphone cable.

    Nordost Heimdall headphone cable

    The retail price is $800 for the 2 m cable, with the option for a $5-600 2 m extension

    Cable for Audeze LCD-XC

    I did not like the Nordost Heimdall 2 paired with the XC's. The result was fatiguing and the headphone was in general overly bright. I much prefer the cable with the LCD-2 fazors.

    Audiophile cables, an interesting question.

    I was at a store and couldn't shut down their high end room for the test. It had to be quick.

    Audiophile cables, an interesting question.

      I started at zero volume for the Schiit, and started at zero volume for the D33. I upped the volume to about 28 on the c-j, and then let it play for 20 seconds. Then I switched the dacs out (Schiit for D33), reset the volume to zero, and began to up the volume to a similar level, but before I...

      I'm saying that everyone chose the Arcam when it was quieter than the Schiit.

    Audiophile cables, an interesting question.

        No, because they all have different power supplies, chipsets, and analog output stages. I didn't keep the preamp at the same volume by the way. I set the volume down to 0, and then set it back to a reasonable volume. As I was ramping up the volume, that's when everyone said, yeah, this is...

    Audiophile cables, an interesting question.

    Have you ever heard a $1500 dac? Or expensive power cables or interconnects? I have, and I'm a real scientist. My professors at engineering school told us that observations rule over equations, and my observations told me the power cord and expensive DACs work better. Especially use observations...
