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

    That sounds an awful lot like an issue I’ve had with original Yggy with A2 and Unison upgrades. It’s happened twice, where for a number of days there’s distortion regardless of the source (both Unison and AES). Changing sample rates typically fixes. Almost sent it in for service the second time...

    MX-VNYL balanced phono stage and Music Hall Cruise Control both arrived. Running unbalanced to the phono stage and then balanced to Freya. Background is silent and everything sounds tighter.

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

    I’m using Yggy —> Lyr 3 with a Tung-Sol 6F8G black glass square plate. I’ve also tried an old Sophia 6SN7. The TS 6F8G are my favorites in my WA22 but not sure about them with the Lyr 3. Maybe I’ll try a treasur globe. Would appreciate thoughts.

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

    I tried that just now. It definitely helps keep the weight on but mine still falls off almost every time I move arm back to the left. Further, the pivot point ends up *much* higher than the stylus.

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

    Great chapter. Received my Rag 2 today and looking forward to listening. One question -- why is the SE preamp output only enabled when the headphone output is enabled? This is the opposite of Rag 1.

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

    I wonder if this is intentional or a mistake, maybe something super simple in assembly? Using SE preouts to a sub is a really common use case and I can't think of many use cases where you'd want preouts active with headphones -- in fact, some Schiit headphone amps used to mute preamp outs when...

    Are you sure about this? The Rag 1 preamp outs are only enabled when the speaker taps are enabled.

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I started to get some whirring and occasional static in one of my Psvane TII last night -- had the Psvanes in gain stage and Sophia 6SN7 in follower stage. I thought about switching out for Lisst but decided to sleep on it. Today I went digging through some spare tubes and ended up putting Tung...

    Chord Electronics ☆ Poly ☆ (wireless & microSD module for Mojo) ☆★►USEFUL INFO on 1st PAGE!!◄★☆

    Just noting that Poly works great for me when I can get it to turn on. Normally this takes a few power cycles of the Mojo. Occasionally I'll get lucky and it will turn on immediately while other times I have to plug it in to a charger for a second to convince it to power up. Bought my Mojo from...

    Schiit Two Channel Clubhouse

    Owner of Klipsch RP-250F and RF 52 ii here. Great speakers for the price. If you're considering the Tekton price range, you may want to look at Ascend Acoustics too. I'm using the Ascend Acoustics Sierra RAAL Towers in my main listening room now (replaced the RP-250Fs). Major upgrade.

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

    Great post. I've been using a Hifiberry Digi+ with Gungnir's BNC input for a few years. I often get a glitch when touching the case of the Gungnir -- just a click of the relay. Now I'm wondering if it's caused by the Hifiberry. I'd love to hear more reports comparing various RPi systems to...

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I own both the Shuguang Treasure CV181-Z and the Psvane CV181-TII. Your observations are correct -- the TIIs fit fine but the CV181-Zs do not. Note that you can't fully seat the TII in the socket unless you use a saver, but you can seat it more than enough to work & be safe. I'm currently using...

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

    Any thoughts on using 6F8G / VT99 tubes + adapters with Freya? IIRC, they are electrically equivalent to 6SN7, differing only in form factor. I've got a spare quad of Tung-Sol BG square plates that I'd like to put to use. I'm either going to use those or 2x Psvane CV-181 TII and 2x CV-181...
