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

    I've rarely shut it off (my A1, or my Gumby), but it's not like I thought it sounded terrible when listening to it after turning it back on. The only times I've left it off for prolonged periods of time is going on vacation. And then when it's turned back on from being cold, I usually wait a...

    we just need the uber yggy that not only is True Multibit, but also has >140 db SINAD, and absolutely no pre or post ringing of transient response.

    Surfcables are fine, and they can make pretty much any terminations for you for not that much money

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

    On my Lyr2, I actually liked the LISST "tubes" the best. So when I upgraded, I decided to get a used Mjolnir 1 instead of a 2, so I just wouldn't have to deal with tubes. The only headphones I haven't sprung for recabling on are my Grados, and those don't really need Mjolnir power anyway, and...

    I may have a problem. I tell myself that it’s cheaper than a cocaine habit

    5 headphones down, just one more

    I like the idea of the Elex, as a way to try out the Focals. Other than the T1.2 from Beyer, I have in the past had the DT880. I also have the DT770 and the T5p, so not really looking at more Beyers right now. The Amiron Home were my favorite for a long time, but they got creaky so anytime...

    I would think you might need a hardware summer, but I'm not sure. I have a v1, but haven't used the pre-outs. Just buy a Freya S, and bang, you're there! Bal->SE conversion.

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

    stuff acquired over a few years...had to stop myself from purchasing another sys just to have them all be similar metal. But even the metal on the vali2 looks quite different from the metal on the loki, so I'm just going to leave the painted steel sys in there. I suppose I could add my painted...

    Just the pyst ones. I have an old Monster 3.5 mm to RCA that's built like a tank for connecting any arbitrary line out to the other Sys input. I suppose I could also plug a phono preamp in there, but I never listen to vinyl with headphones.

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

    Made a Schiit Lego stack using 3M Dual-Lock tape. Powered mostly with one Chtulu, unless using the Wyrd and Eitr simultaneously. I suppose I could swap out the Wyrd for the Modi 3, and switch between DACs, but I figured I’d use the Sys to hook up to any other analog source

    On a Mac, you can use the audio/midi control panel to make a combined device so multiple DACs get output together. Not sure if that exists on Windows natively. Roon also has that capability

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I also had an issue after 1.5 years where I started hearing a buzz and what appeared to be a grounding issue. Fixed under warranty in about a week. (Replaced the RCA jacks and solidified ground/chassis connection was what the repair indicated)

    They’re going to have to be careful there, or sooner or later they won’t get any new music I still think the Bandcamp model is the best.

    Well, lots of people have said they like the Bifrost 2 even more than Yggy. You could save a bunch of money getting that, with Unison, and still get a Freya S and 2x Vidar.

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

    I guess I'll find out when I get my Gumby back with Unison. Not sure I'd be able to tell from memory, but switching back and forth with Eitr will have to do.

    I mean you could get a separate endpoint with BNC or AES output, but with the Gen5 or higher USB, putting the core right on the DAC is fine.

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I can say the Jotunheim sounds great with the HE6SE, and those are also relatively bright (at least compared to LCD2, and T1), and are the hardest-to-drive headphones I own.

    No problem, I’m just going to keep enjoying what I’ve got. Got my microphone today and attached to my AFC1, and the Hel interfaces perfectly.

    On second thought, a good sounding device that is (was) around that price range is the Pono. Has balanced out via 2 3.5 mm connectors, is pretty small, and with 3.5 mm to XLR or 1/4 phono plugs, depending on what your monitors have, you could use it as a transport and a preamp with monitors...

    I'm usually on 1x active, mostly playing rock, so there's still plenty of gain. And with active on the Freya S, it doesn't matter which source, SE or Balanced, the pair of Vidars are fed balanced signal. With my OG Freya, I had to use the tube stage to get vinyl to a balanced signal.

    Hi Dan, Is it possible to implement some version of this new tuning on AFC v1 I already have at home? I'm using the 2-notch filter with original pads right now, but am always looking a more ways to play with the sound. Thanks! PS. Yeah, I also ordered that microphone you mentioned in your...
