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

    I don't post much here but I felt it important to clarify your statement about Swiffers. The main thing is to make sure you always swiff in the right direction. Audio Swiffers come with arrows on the handles to point you the right way. It doesn't matter which model you use, failure to go in the...

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

    Forgive me if I missed this in another reply, but did you try any other device with the Ragnarok preouts besides the KEF sub? From what I see you tried the sub with other amps but I don't see where you plugged another device into the preouts of the Ragnarok.

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

    Just out of nosy curiosity, where do you now live? Your sig still says California so I am wondering if you moved elsewhere in the state and what you think of your new surrounding?

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

    I've got a Ragnarok 2 due to arrive tomorrow and was wondering if there is a general consensus in this group as to whether it is better to leave it on 24/7 or have it on only when used? Anyone know what the power consumption is when idle?

    Oh yeah! A lot more expensive! But I'm not a tube roller. At least not yet, haha..

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

    I've got several things I'm waiting for - a pair of Aegirs, Freya+, Yggy and a Lyr and while of course I'd like to be using them asap, after reading Jason's post yesterday I can appreciate all the headaches and hassles they are going through which are beyond their control. Some might say they...

    I watched the Thunderbirds back in the 60's on television in Los Angeles. One of my favorite shows back then.

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

    What do you mean "audiophoolery?" I'll have you know I did an experiment, simultaneously playing the same recording on repeat through two amps. One has PRAT and the other doesn't. After two days, the recording through the PRAT amp had played 588 consecutive times whereas the recording through...

    I use Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2's. They have RAAL tweeters and I have never heard tweeters as good as them. The crossover with the woofer is seamless. I have no plans on ever replacing them as long as they are working.

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

    Stereophile is just another Fake News outlet. I threw that on their pile long ago with their smug, arrogant attitude.    I'll put credence in what honest manufacturers like Schitt do any day over the opinions of those pompous windbags at Stereophile.

      Hey Brubacca, fellow Emotiva Lounger!  You are right about the headaches Emotiva has had with expanding their product line.    I admire Schiit because they stick with a plan and execute it very, very well. Meanwhile people say, well what if you did X or what if you did Y, and couldn't you...

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

    I hear a definite volume increase when in active mode versus passive mode.  Maybe it depends on the impedence of the amplifier?  I am using it with a Bob Latino ST-120.   The clicks on the remote are audible across the room but it doesn't bother me. I need to get used to it, though, because I...

      My Saga came with stick-on feet in addition to the already stuck-on feet. I feel special.

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    I didn't think it would be the dealer, but just thought I'd bring it up as a possibility.  I sure hope you are able to get this resolved quickly!

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    Just a thought, but you're confident the dealer who shipped it for you is trustworthy?  I'm just wondering if they sent the same thing you gave them, and if they sent it in a timely manner.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

      Distortion is neither inherently good or bad, it just means a reproduction of the original deviates from that original in some way. So basically anything we listen to through an audio system is distorted.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I haven't heard the HD800S but I do have the HD800 and would not characterize the HD800 as having "one-note bass."  I would say the bass goes deep and is very detailed.  It's not a bass-heavy headphone but I can hear distinct bass notes as well as the texturing of those notes during my listening...

    Oppo HA-1 Impressions Thread

    Practically speaking, that spectrum analyzer display for me is totally useless but I still enjoy watching it.  Sort of like an electronic Lava Lamp.

    Sennheiser HD800 S Impressions Thread (read first post for summary)

    I wrote to Oppo asking if there was any practical benefit to replacing my stock HD800 cable with a balanced one for use with their HA-1. I mentioned that their spec sheet shows better specs for the balanced output versus the regular one, but asked if practically speaking it made an audible...

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

      Thanks. I just got the HD800's a few days ago but so far so good. I love my HD650's but feel the HD800's are better although it depends on the recording. I'm just wondering if the IE800 experience would be different enough to be worthwhile considering I already have those two headphones I...

    Schiit Fire and Save Matches! Bifrost Multibit is Here.

    I'm one who doesn't seem to hear differences between DAC's when trying to compare one to another. Yet this doesn't save me any money because I keep buying them anyway!    The thing is, as someone mentioned above, it's good to just sit down and listen to some music for an extended period of...
