    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    When used with my LCD-Xes, which are not difficult to drive, with their balanced cables, I seldom go higher than 9/10 o'clock or so when using High gain. If I wanted to use more of the volume pot I could switch to Low gain but to my ears, High gain sounds a bit better. When used as a preamp to...

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    Brought in the New Year by turning the lights off and listening to Tool - Fear Inoculum, with the Jot 2 feeding my LCD-Xes via the balanced output (High gain), a religious experience to say the least. Love the new preamp output switching...very handy. Terrific sounding amp! Happy New Year!

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    My Bifrost 2 arrived yesterday, it's the first multibit DAC I've had since my Monarchy 22A back in the '90s. It's very impressive. Schiit obviously put a lot of thought and work into Unison USB, have they made any statements regarding what you should have your Sound/Speaker Properties set to...

    You should give Bluejeanscable.com a try, I've used their digital cables in the past and have always been pleased with the results. In the dropdown menu, you can select BNC's. https://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/digital-audio/index.htm

      The problem is everyone would simply turn it around and use it the wrong way.

    I'll give it a try, I'd checked their website and didn't see "Pads" listed anywhere but it's worth a shot. Thanks so much!

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I apologize in advance as I'm sure that this has been covered before, yet I've been away from this site for a while and thought I've been looking I've yet to find the info I need.   I'm trying to find an online store to buy the AudioQuest Protein Leather Pads for my NightHawks. I've used...

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

    For me this comes at an unusual/funny time, I was just notified that the issues of Stereophile and TAS I received this month are the last ones for my subscriptions. I don't like seeing magazines dying off, but I don't see me re-upping both subscriptions (not that they would fold due to my lack...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

        How many hours of music playing time do you have on your Nighthawks now? I ask because I was not impressed with the treble or their transparency until they had nearly 200 hours on them. I listened to then right out of the box and then sat them off to the side on a desk for 10 days or so...

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

      No doubt! I had a small cosmetic issue (OCD on my part) with my Gungnir Gen2 when it arrived and it would have been impossible (short of time travel) for the wonderful staff at Schiit Audio to have a replacement at my door any sooner. And, they were extremely apologetic and nice about...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

      I like that it's adjustable, I just checked and I have mine set where the headband rest is 12" above the top of the metal base which gives me right at 5" of space below the earcups of the NightHwak's. That allows the cable more than enough room so that I never need to worry about a sharp bend...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    A buddy wants me to give a listen to his new Audio Art headphone cable for the NightHawks and it looks really well built and is very flexible...I need to give it a listen.   It's tough, as I'm already a bit bias towards the original AQ cable they came with knowing that this was the way they...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

      Now that you mention it, mine did come with a gray and a black polishing cloth but as per usual, I left most of the extra stuff in their original packaging. lol Well, I assume that those cloths work well but if they don't I know that the ones from Cape Cod in the can certainly do. I've used...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I've had zero issues with my NightHawk cable, it's two very high-quality cables (L&R) running side by side within a weave. If you simply run your fingers gently down the length of the cable you'll keep it nice and flat and it won't twist.   Now with regards to connectors/connections, I can...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

      I'm sorry, I assumed that since the newer NightHawk Carbon comes with two sets of pads, one of them being all protein leather that those pads were available now for the original NH's as well and some may have heard them. The outer portion of the pads are protein leather on the original NH's...

    AudioQuest NightHawk Impressions and Discussion Thread

    I've been away from the site for a while (life got crazy for me) but I wondering what NightHawk owners that have tried the new all protein leather pads have thought about any changes they've made in the sound of the original NH's. The NH's are my go-to headphone but I still curious if the new...

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    No, you'd need a way to adjust the volume between DAC and amp. Unless of course, like mentioned above you happen to have an integrated amp with a built-in volume control.

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I've owned a few speaker amps over the years that would cause a thump to hit my speakers and while I didn't like it I ended up just leaving them on all the time. It would scare you a bit if you were using ribbon speakers like my old Apogee Stages. My only point is that it's nothing new and at...

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    If any amp you own pops or makes any sort of noise when turned on why not simply wait until it's on until you plug in your headphones? With speaker based system you have to turn on your source gear and preamp and then wait a few seconds before turning on your amp so that no turn on transient...

    You don't have to feed the amp via its XLR inputs to use its balanced headphone output. Enjoy!

    Please recommend power cords $100-$200 range or anything with excellent value

      The Shunyata Research Venom3? If so, I've never used one but I've only read great things about it. Enjoy your music!

    Some people would even keep it to themselves that they were inconvenienced (God forbid) rather than posting here that they sent "a pleasant but firm email" to the company.

    Help me choose DAC

    Since most CD's and FLAC music files are 16-bit I'd go with the Schiit Audio Modi Multibit, I'm kinda stunned that they're offering a true Multibit DAC at that price point. That Parasound Halo A21 is a very nice amp, I use one to drive my Maggie 1.7's and it'll sound great with a multibit DAC...

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    Schiit Audio doesn't do business that way, if the product wasn't ready to go and perform as advertised it would never hit the market. That isn't to say something can't be wrong with a particular unit as anything can happen during shipping or a part could go bad, but they wouldn't use their...
