    @Ableza I miss seeing your face when I see your posts. Please reshoot the photo so that we can see it.

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    The standard drop down for connectors on Blue Jeans Cable is correct. The nonstandard drop downs are for the specialty cable types. Edit: Whoops! That is what I get for reading quickly! I thought that you wanted XLR to XLR cables, which have multiple types. Please ignore my advice. It is not...

    I would suggest that Alex or his designee just post it this thread. Two reasons for this: 1. Easier than modifying the website. 2. Secondary benefit to being such avid followers of this thread. Hey, we have to take all the perks we can get!

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    I personally cannot tell the difference between Red base and standard base RCA tubes. When those tubes were made, the difference in spec was shock resistance. They were placed in Army Artillery from the 50's to make up part of the fire control computer(analog computer). I though Raytheon VT231...

    Schiit Lyr 3 Tube rolling thread.....

    I tried the JJ 6SN7 in the Saga. I didn't like it all. I can't say it had any redeeming qualities. I didn't give it any break in time though. Perhaps I should have, but now it is given away and I am unwilling to try it again.

    The DSP chip is physically larger than the ARM CPU on the pi.

    Welcome to Head-Fi. I think that a new Modi Multibit may be in the works: 1. Jason said some time ago that we were in for a new era in multibit. 2. They are playing with Raspberry pi as a development platform. 3. The DSP chips in the multibit DACs are expensive and make up a substantial...

    Schiit Freya Impressions and Tube Rolling Thread

    Freya plate voltage is the problem. She runs at 300 volts. Noval tubes will have a high chance of arcing. This is really bad. You may be able to get away with it on Saga, which runs 200 volts.

    I think that you mean disinfect rather than sterilize. The study that you refer to is that detectable coronavirus RNA was not found after 30 min of UV C. This is a rather high energy UV but you only really have to supply enough UV to form enough pyrimidine dimers to make the RNA unreadable to...

    This is like saying that Thai cuisine is superior to Mandarin. The cooking techniques are similar but hardly comparable on the same grading scale.

    I am deployed so far forward in this war that I have not physically seen my family since March 7th. Music is a great help right now. It is hard to maintain a positive outlook. Enjoy what you have. Do what makes you happy. When you feel like you got a raw deal, remember that others are worse...

    They are legit. I wouldn't use them to get matched sets but for singles, they are fine

    Schiit Lyr 3 Tube rolling thread.....

    I grew up about 10 miles away from the RCA tube plant. The local flea market used to have large selections of tubes that people had 'found' in their basements. I distinctly remember stopping at one seller that had boxes and boxes of tubes withred bases. Asking price was 25 cents
