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

    I just upgraded my Gumby to Yggy. Dont know if you guys had the same issue or not. Sometimes I can hear electrostatic noise (like a quick sudden bump) from my headphones with Yggy, though not often and very rare. I use exactly the same setup and location as my Gumby which never had this issue...

    To be honest, I dont really care where the product is made, as long as there is good warranty and customer service.

    $500 is probably a bit cheap for a transport in my opinion. I would say above $1k.

    What CD transport do you guys use? I am not sure if I can wait for the Schiit one to come out. I was looking at Jays Audio CDT2-MK2. It is priced at $2,398 and I dont know if it is over-priced. For the Cambridge CXC transport, I have heard good things and bad things, so not sure if that would be...

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

    @Jason Stoddard Hi Jason, I am planning to move from headphones to speakers. I was wondering if Aegir *2 (Mono, 8 ohms: 80W RMS) would be a good fit for Bowers & Wilkins 804 D3 which says "Recommended amplifier power: 50W - 200W into 8Ω on unclipped programme" in the info sheet. Or Vidar *2...

    Same as you. Have thousands of CDs and do need a quality cd transport, a transport that can work perfectly with Schiit DACs.

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    I know there are many threads talking about pairing with HD800/HD800S. Just wondering, in summary, how would you guys rank the V281, Woo WA22 and Woo WA5 pairing with HD800/800S. Thanks
