  1. Grado RS-1X

    Looking to sell my Grado RS-1X. I am the original owner and purchased online from Audio46 in November 2021. The headphones are in good condition. The only wear I can see is the letters for L and R slightly losing their silver coloring. I am in a pet free and smoke free home. Only looking...

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

    Nothing is confirmed but it’s been strongly hinted that two products will be announced this week (likely tomorrow). Modi Multibit 2 is a strong possibility.

    Correct. When I turn the knob, it feels as if it’s scratching the case. However, ensuring there’s a slight gap fixed the issue. Now it’s smooth as ever. The new knob is definitely more premium feeling than the one that came with the Lokius.

    This worked well! Ordered the rest of the knobs.

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

    We all do questionable things for this hobby. That’s part of the fun. I have 5 silver knobs sitting in my Schiit cart right now waiting for me to submit. Would have already purchased if the new knob wasn’t so scratchy. Still contemplating…..

    Took a photo of the delineation between the cocobolo wood and hemp on the RS-1X. I’ve been torn between the different “premium” Grado pad makers. Is Beautiful Audio considered the best?

    How do the pads compare to g-Cush? Thoughts on comfort and temperature?

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    Finally took the effort to place the OG BF2 card back in. This would be my first time listening to the Lyr+ with that version of the Bifrost. I really wish it was as easy to swap cards as it is tubes (a wishful solution would be some kind of external module). The OG card adds some of the...

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    Looks like we have identical setups except for the Grados (I have the RS1x). I haven’t really spent any time listening to my Grados while on SS mode, but now I’m more curious after reading your impressions. To me, the SS mode had slightly flatter imaging when compared to my tube when listening...

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    Definitely a good idea. The Lyr+ is a good amp, but just a different flavor (compared to Lyr 3).

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    I’m curious about how well the Lyr+ is selling. I haven’t seen that many impressions yet. The Schiit website still has shipping between 1 and 3 days. Probably just too early. So far, I’m still really enjoying my Lyr+. The detail/resolution is the most noticeable benefit compared to the Lyr 3...

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

    Sorry to hear about that. I just noticed ringing in my ears 2 years ago. I thought it was related to some medication I was taking, but it didn't go away after I stopped taking the medication. I've tried to minimize anything that could trigger increased ringing (alcohol, loud music, etc.). I...

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

    This is a great point and something that really needs to be taken into consideration. My chain has changed pretty drastically within the past month. A “new” DAC, new amp (Lyr 3 previously), and new tubes. I added the new BF2/64 card, which is a noticeably different “flavor” than the original...

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

    I haven’t spent too much time listening to headphones with the Lyr+, but I do believe it adds slightly more neutrality to the sound. I’m trying to find ways to add a bit more warmth. Might actually end up swapping the original BF2 card back in to see how that sounds.

    Plenty of adjectives to describe a setup. I’ll accept neato any day.

    Show us your Head-Fi station at it's current state. No old pictures please...

    Interesting. Where’s a good place to buy vintage tubes? I’m still pretty new to the tube world.

    Schiit Lyr 3 Tube rolling thread.....

    Maybe this should be in a Lyr+ Tube rolling thread, but I came here to say that the Shug treasure tube no longer needs a socket saver to fit.

    Not sure yet. I have the Bifrost 2/64 and the combo with the Lyr+ makes the setup more neutral than what I’m used to. I enjoy a bit of warmth and darkness. I may swap the old Bifrost card in to see how that sounds. I’m using a tung sol tube. Going to try my Shuguang treasure tomorrow.

    Thanks. Still listening for impressions. Also, getting used to the change in volume since it's now only listenable starting at the 12 o'clock position on low gain (lyr 3 started at about 8 for me).

    Schiit Lyr+ : Impressions Thread

    I'm experiencing the same thing with my Lyr+. Listenable volume starts at 12 o'clock. Initially, I was thinking it wasn't outputting any sound.
