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

    Hey all, it's been a while since I've posted as I've been a bit busy lately. I got a tickle out of Steve Guttenberg's Part 1 of the over 30 hifi systems. I didn't expect it but he picked my system as one of them to show! I'm at timestamp 12:40 and he rattled-off all the Schiit gear I've...

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

    I was glad to hear another batch of Freya S may be coming. I love mine and hope those that are interested can take advantage of the upcoming opportunity! A lot of folks here are showing HP scientific calculator love here which I don't think is too surprising based on this type of forum and...

    They are improving Qobuz over time @Pietro Cozzi Tinin. The ability to choose genre(s) has been there for the last few months since I started my subscription.

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

    Hey @StimpyWan your question is tough as speakers are such a personal thing, and this pandemic has limited our ability to hear some of the speaker choices. Additionally, there some of the choices are not even carried or stocked by a local dealer if you even happen to have them in your area...

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

    Thanks for this @A Jedi - my 4 months for $4 trial runs out in 6 days! I've put a calendar reminder to disconnect it early next week. With Qobuz and the others I have no need for it and I was getting tired of music discovery being weighted too much on the hip-hop category. I also was porting...

    Breaking in the new sub and Ron's (NRD) binaural speaker demo turned me on to this which has been addicting and I've been exploring the rest of Nenad Vasilic's work. Hope you all got your music fill this weekend!

    I’ve had the Zu DW sale marked on my calendar for a while. I like the 12x12 footprint and 36” tall proportions but I have never had a chance to demo it. I may be able to if my brother-in-law jumps on a pair. I’ve got a couple good weeks of break-in on the LS50 Metas and really enjoying them...

    Thanks @tincanear for the insight on the Rag 2 integrated gain stage impressions from Jason's discussions. I wonder what that circuit system actually has as far as gain stages. My brother-in-law would not be using Vidars for a Zu speaker set...but I'm enjoying the LS 50 Metas with my Vidars as...

    I think my brother-in-law would love the Zu DW in the house they just moved to so I have the sale weekend date marked on my calendar for them. I thought long and hard about the Rag 2 before getting my Freya S and 2 Vidar combination which of course I'm running balanced. Very low noise floor in...

    Thomas Dybdahl - One Day You'll Dance for Me, New York City I ripped this album to FLAC and enjoying it on the Magnius/Modius stack. I discovered Thomas Dybdahl from streaming recommendations. I’m sure I’m late to the game but there is a lot of music out there! For those of you in Europe I’m...

    Brought home something familiar to keep breaking-in the KEFs. Brings back memories!

    I'm wishing for an evolutionary update in a newer Freya style chassis and it would look good under my "S"!
