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

    I don't post much here but I felt it important to clarify your statement about Swiffers. The main thing is to make sure you always swiff in the right direction. Audio Swiffers come with arrows on the handles to point you the right way. It doesn't matter which model you use, failure to go in the...

    Forgive me if I missed this in another reply, but did you try any other device with the Ragnarok preouts besides the KEF sub? From what I see you tried the sub with other amps but I don't see where you plugged another device into the preouts of the Ragnarok.

    Just out of nosy curiosity, where do you now live? Your sig still says California so I am wondering if you moved elsewhere in the state and what you think of your new surrounding?

    I've got a Ragnarok 2 due to arrive tomorrow and was wondering if there is a general consensus in this group as to whether it is better to leave it on 24/7 or have it on only when used? Anyone know what the power consumption is when idle?

    Oh yeah! A lot more expensive! But I'm not a tube roller. At least not yet, haha..

    I've got several things I'm waiting for - a pair of Aegirs, Freya+, Yggy and a Lyr and while of course I'd like to be using them asap, after reading Jason's post yesterday I can appreciate all the headaches and hassles they are going through which are beyond their control. Some might say they...

    I watched the Thunderbirds back in the 60's on television in Los Angeles. One of my favorite shows back then.

    What do you mean "audiophoolery?" I'll have you know I did an experiment, simultaneously playing the same recording on repeat through two amps. One has PRAT and the other doesn't. After two days, the recording through the PRAT amp had played 588 consecutive times whereas the recording through...

    I use Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2's. They have RAAL tweeters and I have never heard tweeters as good as them. The crossover with the woofer is seamless. I have no plans on ever replacing them as long as they are working.

    Stereophile is just another Fake News outlet. I threw that on their pile long ago with their smug, arrogant attitude.    I'll put credence in what honest manufacturers like Schitt do any day over the opinions of those pompous windbags at Stereophile.

      Hey Brubacca, fellow Emotiva Lounger!  You are right about the headaches Emotiva has had with expanding their product line.    I admire Schiit because they stick with a plan and execute it very, very well. Meanwhile people say, well what if you did X or what if you did Y, and couldn't you...

    I hear a definite volume increase when in active mode versus passive mode.  Maybe it depends on the impedence of the amplifier?  I am using it with a Bob Latino ST-120.   The clicks on the remote are audible across the room but it doesn't bother me. I need to get used to it, though, because I...

      My Saga came with stick-on feet in addition to the already stuck-on feet. I feel special.

    Ordered a Saga yesterday, got the tracking info today.  Don't they ever sleep over at Schiit?  Jason must be a slavedriver!  Or they have nothing better to do on the weekends...
