    Modius unison is the simplified* non-isolated version (no in/out dirty/quiet i2s transformers/latching -- suspect it realllly** works, a lot of modius's perf may be just that) it looks roughly the same size as the cmedia ver2 cluster**** --> I'd wanna get simple unison on the cards as soon as...

    No, see CN3/4 on the digital input board. Gen5 = CN4 UNISON = CN3 (or Strike that. Reverse it.) Both use CN2 for power/control. Think it's interesting, don't mean to dwell on it. [old pics during the beta] Didn't trace the circuit 'cause risk to damaging the yggy, maybe in a year or three.

    Got exposed to HP-UX as a baby-- can zip around/script/c/vi in linux, rasppi, macos cmdline like it's nothing. Funny how windows cmdline's actually the weird one!

    Could not resist to mentioning this vid, in case you haven't run across it... Paul even demonstrates doing math! So cool how concepts progress, the origins of technologies, and how we iterate on them. Just a measly 600V rail to rail at that time.

    Thanks, makes sense. I have the ECC99's parked there because people insist they are compatible with 6N6P (or Val2) (sure didn't look like they were) -- OK but gonna check data sheets on my own, and talk to Schiit first! Need a JJ for Lyr3 now, interesting! ...price bump on analog2? ..Jil...

    Interesting re: JJ tubes-- actually have (for awhile) this saved on Amazon for Val2-- wonder if you should (or plan to) go JJ across the board & simplify?

    piCore can be really bulletproof if you use it as an audio endpoint only (with the LMS server somewhere else)... I recommend running 2 pi's with piCore, the endpoint and then the LMS server. Also on the LMS server, make sure to move the index database to the 4TB media drive (there's a button for...

    ^ re: Darko's review... getting good at editing and nice video, do wish he'd mention the possible impedance matching that preamps can provide.

    This is pure Aegir* withdrawal syndrome fix: http://bit.ly/2P76EqY (turning a poor Adcom into a space heater) it's laying around most of the time. *borrowed one for a week To be clear, it's got a few traits now, but not an Aegir.

    Jason said maybe "controversial" --> Major form factor change on MJ3/Gun style? Not as wide? Valhalla2*/Bifrost roughly same, but new chassis, and everything else with that chassis style (asgard, etc) asgard tweaked -- Bifrost completely new ΔΣ USB cards more user accessible or firmwares user...

    Schiit Valhalla Tube Rolling thread.

    (random post) My Tube sprallllll and management ;D --> Bought the Val2 used and he included a variety of tubes... only bought one set of 4 on my own -- lyr3 at desk now (why Val2's sitting out for the moment) Yep I'm a dork, printed a cover tall enough for socket savers.

    Never's a strong word, but ya do have more than one digital input (gun/yggy?) no? -- no need to all out replace. Why not get a pi3B+ going in some iteration, you can talk about that and not some oddball from 2017. (lol, wasn't there a strange Bond movie: Never say never again ;D)

    Cool. The pi is evolving. The pi itself. The pi hat or no hat. The software. Maybe your friend gave you some notes? Cliff notes something like: pi2/volumio/hifiberry_digi pi3/moode/usb pi3B+/piCoreRT/digiOneSig/Battery pi3A+/usb/Lion [REDACTED] Big diff, from junk to holy [CENSORED] (language).

    Cool, didn't want you to introduce a new variable, there's ModiMB V1/V2 though-- V2 has a nicer relaxed presentation-- can hear into the soundstage. Bifrost still going to be better no doubt, but not an all out slaughter vs: V1. & maybe you've seen my posts on the dark forum, the bifrost's the...

    Lol --> check the date, wires go nowhere inside. ( Yeah, guess I was bored ) Doable tho, there are 2 8-bit shift registers in there, so looked kinda real. Bet it'd sound pretty bad haha!
