    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    Was just reminded of this - pick up a bottle of Heet (the automotive fuel additive). It's isopropanol.

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

    In Foobar, go to File/Preferences and click on Output. In the Device dropdown, make sure your Bifrost is selected. In Win7 I have five different options for my Hel, to start with I would select the DirectSound (DS) option as it would be simpler.

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

    I've recently found an addon to Foobar2k called StereoTool v3 which shows a song's stereo image realtime (and more flashy lights :o2smile:). It's been interesting watching the display as great sounding FLACs from yesteryear play followed by stuff from this century. My ears weren't lying, the...

    SPL Phonitor X / Phonitor E impressions and Discussion thread

    Hi All, Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum to say I'm one of you now! :o2smile: Received my XE a couple days ago to drive the Ether 2's I received a week prior. I've been burning them in with a frequency sweep at night and during the day. After work I've been loving the setup. The...

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

    Hope everyone is staying safe out there and while you are trying to maintain your sanity being cooped up, I was wondering of someone could enlighten me regarding headphone amplifier electronics. First, a little back history. I have a Valhalla 2 driving the HD700. Works well with some EQ help...

    ETHER 2: Impressions and Discussion

    If I ever get around to clearing out the clutter from what should be my home "office" area and rebuild my computer/radio station, the WA5 would look stunning on the desk.

    ETHER 2: Impressions and Discussion

    Greetings All: I took the plunge on Monday to purchase the Ether 2's, thanks to a nice $300 discount on the website. Received them today and am trying them out on my stock Valhalla 2 and stock Bifrost (non multibit). First off, the comfort is PHENOMENAL. And I'm coming from the HD700. I'm...

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

    LOL sure! And you'll just get so much more current at no extra cost - it's a win-win situation! :wink: I just had this exact scenario play out at work today. We're trying a new emission indicator LED design and forgot the current limiting resistor, or shall I say assumed it was in the upstream...

    Not to mention getting all of those pesky and conductive metal filings from rethreading lodged between IC legs and wedged into transformer windings. FUN times!

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

    I use DBPowerAmp as well and have used it for years with no complaints. Regarding CD drives, I would guess that back in the earlier days of Win7 and before, the variety of CD drives available to computer manufacturers were quite large and the capabilities of each varied just as well. With all...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    I have the wireless version (bought a couple years ago from Amazon) and they have the black logo.

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

    Seriously. I think it would be a GREAT idea to have one device, regardless of what is being tested that day, that is markedly subpar (or superior for that matter) than the other contenders. If you document what the deficiencies are, you can then use it as sort of a benchmark to reference the...

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

    I've been following Scott and the clan for a couple years now and am thoroughly impressed with their musical ability. Add to the fact that the only electronics used are the ones for the microphones and video. Everything else is acoustic. A lot (if not most or all) of today's "artists" need to...

    I was telling mine that this morning when we were both waiting for the coffee to brew. And he reminded me likewise!

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

    Gotta throw my 1.3¢ into the Schiit Story hat...Something like almost four years ago I decided to upgrade to the HD700 after my old Sonys had dry-rotted away. Then I wanted something to drive them from my computer. That's when I found Head-Fi and people here suggested various amps and I...

    You're not the only one! One of these days I'll get it out and do a needle drop on it.

    Schiit Valhalla Tube Rolling thread.

    The set I got a couple years ago (eBay/China) didn't work off the bat. But after cleaning up the amateur soldering job, they've been working like champs ever since. I found that a medium-sized set of hemostats with serrated jaws could get between the Valhalla's grill and the saver's top edge...

    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    Making a simple sauce out of rhubarb, strawberries & sugar makes one hell of a great topping for vanilla ice cream...or just eaten by itself. My parent's house had four rhubarb plants so we were lousy with the stuff and did not care. :stuck_out_tongue:
