    HIFIMAN on Wood

    Take a look at the Bowers & Wilkins 800 series. Made from laminated wood. I agree with the sentiment of who wrote this and having someone in marketing or even a technical person write would have sold it much better. Simply using the term laminate and not plywood would have gone a long way...

    Are you selecting the Jot as your output device in windows? Also do you have the correct input selected?

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Part of the reason for the 'U' shape on a few of the first amps was that the case was used as a heatsink.

    Is my music source going through the amplifier's DAC when connected through bluetooth?

    Wouldn't bluetooth be a digitial signal that would be received by the CXAC60 that would then be converted to analog and fed to the amplifier? So the Digital to Analog Conversion would be in the CXAC60

    MrSpeakers ETHER C Review / Announcement - A New Closed-Back Planar Magnetic Flagship from MrSpeakers

    There a number of people that use toilet paper to tame the highs on headphones.  Search this thread and there is some earlier discussion.  Some of the 'pro' T50rp modders also used TP in their versions.

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    From what I recall reading it does use the 5V to make the connection but the DAC itself is powered off the Jot powersupply.  So the receiver is powered off USB but the DAC is not.

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    They have a use in the circuit. I don't recall exactly but they are used because they have as constant power draw and that factor is used in setting or stabilizing part of the circuit. Schiit provided the answer somewhere in here or the schiit happened thread.

    Crackles and pops with RPI3, Schiit Modi Multibit + several OS

    I run a similar setup but with a 128GB USB drive. No issues like he is having. OP, what is powering your HDD? If it doesn't have its own power supply consider trying a powerd hub.

    Crackles and pops with RPI3, Schiit Modi Multibit + several OS

    Hmm, Im using a Raspberry Pi 2 and the Schiit Jot (same USB receiver as the Modi MB) and am not having any issues.  I will get a click sometimes when changing tracks alot.       Are you getting clicks throughout the track or just at the start?  It may help to change your buffer settings.    ...

    I Need A really Powerful Good DAC. There Is no price range

    Im guessing you want a combined DAC and AMP that is more powerful than the NFB-11.     What headphone are you powering?  The NFB-11 should be able to drive most headphones to very loud levels.  What is causing you to look for more power?

    External hard drive array is a hundred times slower now?

    Going to need some more detail to help:   How is it accessed?  Wired network, wireless network, usb3, esata ect.    Are all the drives healthy?  Have you performed any checks of the individuals drives for health to see if one is failing/failed?   It appears you have a RAID array in place...
