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

    Buying Schiit products is like eating pistachios, you can't stop even though you know you should. After the IEMagni arrived I decided to replace my work Modi 2 Uber with a Modi 3+, no specific reason, mostly curious about Unison USB. It does allow me to take the Wyrd out of the chain and now I...

    [FiiO BTR5/FiiO BTR5 2021] Flagship Portable High-Fidelity Bluetooth Amplifier, Bluetooth chip CSR8675, support up to 384kHz&DSD256 native

    I get between 6 and 7 hours when using outside doing yard work, LDAC from phone, 2.5 mm out. Happy with that as it is the only time I use this set up and I have a btr3 backup for the long spring and fall days.

    I am 1/2 way thru Highland Park 12 as well, recommended here or another forum, this follows the Aberfeldy 12 also recommended here. New to the scotch games, what's next to try?

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

    Bonus time. While pursuing a forum I found that there is a foobar Upnp component - UPnP MediaRenderer Output - and that foobar on the desktop recognizes the UsBridge Volumio Upnp allowing me to use FooBar instead of the Volumio app.

    I went with the Allo USBridge Sig, I also ordered Volumio which was prudent as there is a plugin for SubSonic so it was simple to get to my music since I have a subsonic license I purchased many years ago. It supports most of the major streaming services except Amazon. I don't subscribe to...

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    These arrived today, confirming that the Cowon Plenue MK II can drive them, though not LOUD. Initial listen was at 105 out of 140. These will primarily be used on my desktop (USBridge Sig > BiFrost MD > Sonic Exciter > Loki Mini > Lyr 3) They sound great now,(Art Blakey & The Jazz...

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    Thank you for the response, LOUD is not important to me at this point in my listening career. I will report back once I receive the headphones and cable (both ordered Xmas eve). I will be able to use the 2.5 cable from my Lyr3 as I have a Furutech 1/4" Male to 2.5mm TRRS Female Adapter
