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

    Thanks Jason. My mac mini is dedicated Roon server/endpoint, so it is headless in my rack. I will look into muting the system sounds somehow. Thanks for the hints there!!

    It is dead stable and silent relays while it is playing music! Thanks for the comment.

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

    Hi everyone, question about Bifrost 1 Gen 5 USB. I leave mine on all the time, and as such, I hear it doing it's clicks all the time. Even when there is no music playing. What can cause this? Do I have a defective Bifrost? I know the clicks are normal switching between formats, but when there...

    Go look back at other videos with the SOL, they are all slammed fully forward... I had expected as the development was matured over the last year, that would start to change, but this latest shootout, and observing the same "problem", makes me think maybe I should wait until the second version...

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

    One observation from all photos I have seen of the Sol arm, it seems like all of the cartridges are slammed near the front of the adjustment range. To me, especially across such a range of cartridges cited in this shoot-out, is that the adjustment range in the headshell isn't optimized. Question...

    This is the most I have been excited since leading up to my kids being born, 7 and 10 years ago:

    Really?? To me that sounds like a good reason to avoid Audio Valve. It displays an arrogance that only they are qualified to select tubes for their amps, and also a potential indication that they haven't spent much thought time and investment to ensuring that their amps are safe and sound good...

    Any update on Sol and the CD transport? It feels like there has been a delay on Sol, was supposed to start shipping in March/April at initial estimate?

    Please share how the pairing of Freya S and Aegir is when you get them. That is my intended next step (upgrade Saga to Freya S)

    I’m unhappy with my sound right now. The Saga doesn’t give enough bottom end and punch to the Aegir in my experience (into Tekton Lore OG). Agree that’s the highs and upper mids are really spectacular with the Aegir and Saga combo, but at giant expense of the lower mids through sub bass. I had...

    Still using Saga in the pre stage?

    I think a slightly more apt metaphor would be if you bought 1KG of oranges, and asked them to remove the peel and give you a discount.

    Just because Schiit is working with you on your little tantrum, doesn't mean it is right. You bought a product that was a given price, one you were comfortable paying when you ordered it. The transaction is finished. I bet you're the kind of person who will complain about a meal at a restaurant...

    Wow, just wow. Should Jason have called you personally, sent along an edible arrangement?

    I like mustard, raw chopped onions and a tiny bit of ketchup on my red snapper hot dogs. Shoot me, it’s delicious that way. I’ll die with one in my hand with a smile on my face.
