    Do I really need Beyer DT990?

    For me the DT990 is an exaggerated version of the DT880. You take that metallic treble, push it up 2 or 3 notches. Same for the bass. IMO if you have the DT880 already it's not worth it.

    Schiit Owners Unite

    Anyone with either Gungnir or Yggy tried the new Chromecast 2 with optical ? Does it light up the "buy better gear" light?

    Schiit Owners Unite

    Having Valhalla to run IEM is a strange idea. It's like using an excavator to move a single grain of sand.

    WHAAAAT ?! no difference with a Dac

    As people said arround here, just use your E10 for a while without minding it or "looking" for an improvement too much, just enjoy your music as usual. Then say a week or two later, switch back, and see if something is missing now.

    Schiit Mjolnir 2 Listening Impressions

    Personally I'd stick with low gain for greater play on the volume pot and technically better noise/THD performance.

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    High gain pushes more voltage if you need higher volume, but it comes at a cost (higher noise and distorsion, among other things). If the volume you get at low gain let say at 3 o'clock on the knob is good, then you should stick there instead of going high gain at 10 o'clock (just an example)...

    NEW - Schiit Asgard 2

    It's the other way arround, none of them should need the "high" setting. You want to use low gain as much as possible and push the volume knob near max in that setting if necessary . Otherwise, you'll attenuate heavily a high power circuit with more noise and distortion, which is just silly when...

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    I like how people now all of a sudden have an opinion on sigma-delta. I see tons of people now arguing over types of digital filters, old school R2R ladder topologies, absolute phase, oversampling... I actually had a few EE classes in college, so I get the basics of all of this, probably more...

    Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition

    I find it quite surprising. I see all those people complaining about the 2 years+ wait time from Headamp and when a unit pops up on the used market (that you can get a listen to this weekend if you want), nobody wants it. I guess people like to pay for the excitement and the desire of a product...

    Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition

    Which is inline with the pricing from Headamp for a new unit, minus taxes and the wait time.

    Warm And Thick Cans!

    As I said earlier, I haven't heard any HD5x5, so I wont comment on that comparison.
