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

    I am interested in hearing how you plan to get your tester to fail repeatedly so you can compare the sound of each fuse gasping its last breath. 😀

    How to add excitement to current (6XX) rig?

    I don’t know what you use to drive your headphones. I know for me, getting an OTL tube amp really woke up my 6xx. Much more engaging. I still have Sundara with SS amp, so best of both worlds!

    Foam tip choices

    I’ve been happy with Dekoni Foam Tips. Maybe I’m the only one… Smalls should fit you fine.

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

    Some years back, I gave my wife a tractor (NewHolland TC29) for Christmas, with a bucket and post hole digger. She was quite happy with it!

    Ananda vs Sundara Help Me!

    I have the Sundara, and particularly enjoy them with a Schiit Loki in the chain. just a slight boost of the 20 Hz and 400 Hz knobs, and I’m a happy camper!

    Mid-fi heaven?

    I’m happy with my mid-fi Magni 3+ for Sundara, Darkvoice for the 6xx. I’m getting old and what’s left of my hearing wouldn’t be able to appreciate the top o’ the heap!

    R E C E N T - Purchases Thread

    I’m about 45 days into a Darkvoice 336se. Enjoyable with 6xx. Contrast with Schiit Magni 3+ and Sundara. Now I can match my sound to “feelings” as needed. I was ready to resell 6xx until I got the DV. It really made that much of a difference to me.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I have had 6xx for about 9 months, and they seemed boring compared to my Sundaras (Schiit Magni/Modi stack). I finally got a Darkvoice (which was the reason for buying the 6xx). What a difference! These headphones came alive with this amp! Could just be confirmation bias, but I really believe...

    Darkvoice 336i & 336SE Tuberolling PartII

    Wow, such competition for my undying devotion (until I change my mind!). Thanks for the help. I”ll use my cheap bluetooth headphones with a wire as sacrificial lambs, and cover both bets.

    Darkvoice 336i & 336SE Tuberolling PartII

    Noob question here. I have worked for decades as a bassist, and you never run a tube amp without a speaker load. Does this also apply to non 300 watt amps like Darkvoice? Like, do I need headphones plugged in during burn-ins, or before turning the amp on? Thanks for the help! (I know this...

    Schiit Valhalla 2 impressions

    I was in a similar situation. I have a Magni3+/Modi 3/Loki stack for my Sundaras. I chose Darkvoice over Valhalla 2 because I wanted the most difference with 6xx cans. We’ll see how it works out (DV just arrived).

    @bcowen I’m gonna wait until you buy another amp, then offer Mrs. bcowen $500 *cash* for that closet of glass. Bwahh ha ha! 😀
