    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    I got my Fulla 2 on Saturday, shipped in the last shipment on last Tuesday before problem was addressed. I'm using the Fulla 2 as my Raspberry Pi Jriver Server's renderer. The Modi Multibit works flawlessly but the Fulla produces lots of crackling when set to anything other then S16_LE under...

    I haven't read any problems installing the Schiit Win10 drivers on any of the recent posts. My multibit still will not install using the win10 1.01 driver. Today I learned two things: 1. Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview build 14965.rs will install the new Windows USB 2.0 driver instead of...

    To all:   After putting the Digi+Pro in the Pi3, swapping it out for the old Digi+, trying again updated everything with no luck, switching back, using my JRiver IdPi server with the old card and pretty much giving up on the new one. Today, being a glutton for punishment and hoping that magic...

    Yes, I tried both coax and optical for the digi+Pro, both sound the same. While using the original digi+ with Jriver IdPi software I use optical. This is why I'm asking about the multibit, I had a bad feeling there was a synergy problem. My multibit is strident in the highs and a bit lean...

    Hi, is anyone using a raspberry pi 3 and the hifiberry digi+ PRO card with the schiit multibit? I'm using the latest Raspian Pixel Linux and JRiver 36. I just got one and it sounds terrible, I'm not sure if it is the card  or the multibit. The regular digi+ sounds OK. The thing is thin and...

    Thanks Ancipital, that's why I am asking. I am just curious about all the ways to get the most out of the modi/magni stack.

      You're welcome. I had the same issue and was confused for awhile. Eventually I poked around in Foobar and found the config menu. JRiver keeps adding more menus and switch options, I've given up try to keep track and stick with the defaults on JRMC 22.

      Go to the JRMC Playback Options/Audio Device/Device Settings/ASIO for Generic USB Device [ASIO] Panel and press "Open Driver Control Panel" in the lower right Output block. This pops up the ASIO Control Panel where you can set the bit depth and latency. Set it to 24 bit and save. The audio...

    I climbed the trail to high end in the 90's and ended up owning a Studer-Revox (Tuner, CD, Integrated Amp, Multiroom remote) stack and Magnepans, surround everything and cables, etc. to the point I spent too much money and too much time playing with the gear I didn't listen to much actual music...

    I'm almost exactly the same, age, tinnitus causing some pretty bad masking, congestion in left ear, and lowered freq. response. Music appreciation started at 9 with first opera 78s. Just got the Magni 2 Uber and couldn't be happier over my cheap somewhat modified Sennheiser HD558s. (Good enough...

      Thanks, I'm reading now. I do have one question which hasn't been brought up as far as can find. The Modi Multibit is a 16bit dac which takes 24 bit data. How does it reduce a 24 bit file which say has 18 bits resolution down to only the 16 bits with out noticeable degradation?

    I earlier returned the Modi Uber via FedEx back to Schiit. Within 10 minutes of notifying Schiit I got back a shipping email. Should be here by next Monday or Tuesday, FedEx hasn't updated yet.

    Thank you RickB, being an old guy and having done the first adopter thing, with varied results, years ago I'm not that blown out, just a bit sad. I'll have to wait a WHOLE week before the new multibit arrives. :)  Looking forward to hearing what everyone else has experienced.

    Hi All, first post after being a member for years. I'd like to vent a little Schiit woes.   Last Tuesday I finally ordered with enthusiastically and expectantly ordered, for the first time, a Schiit Modi Mulitbit and the Magni Uber. I should have known something might go wrong when the order...
