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

    Yeah, and here's the weird thing. It isn't scratchy the whole time. It will be silent a long time, and then there will be some cascading waves of static for a bit, then nothing again for some time. Unpredictable and inconsistent. And usually only from one speaker. This will swap, btw, if I swap...

    Wait, so it's okay to clean out the tube sockets with something like isopropyl? (With the unit unplugged, obviously.) I would have thought getting moisture inside an electronic device like the Freya would be bad?

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

    Tube question - what causes a tube or tubes that have been dead silent for weeks/months (and should have many thousands of hours of life left), to suddenly start making scratchy/static-ky sounds? And what's to be done? Should I take them out of my Freya +, and blow into the sockets? Clean the...

    Oh let me clarify, I was indeed sporting a bare head prior to receiving my splat, er - hat

    LUXURY! We'd have killed for some snow to cushion the barbed wire. We had to trudge mostly through broken glass and fire ants.

    +1 I am always impressed by how informative, intelligent and yet funny and accessible your writing is. The fact that you write product manuals that I actually look forward to reading is saying something. So much so, that as much as I love my Schiit gear (and I LOVE my Schiit gear), if you...

    I love reading my Schiit manuals. Besides the obvious useful product info, they are filled with many tidbits of hilarity.

    I leave my Bifrost MB on all the time, and mine does the same. Even when music is off and my Macbook has been lid-down and sleeping for hours, my Bifrost MB will randomly click from time to time. I have often wondered about this as well. I had thought maybe it was the result of power...

    The thing that would most intrigue me would be the ability to toggle the phase inverter switch from a listening distance. I've never had anything that allowed me to toggle the phase and from all I've read it is often a song-by-song basis. I'm curious to play around with it and a remote would...

    What was that? I didn't quite catch what you said... Something about selective something? :-)

    Any change that Yggdrasil with Unison will also come with a remote?

    You know I have one simple request. And that is to have Bifrosts with frickin laser beams!

    Thanks. I know they will fail eventually, I just want to avoid anything that gets me there faster. Do you know if the Freya + has a soft start like you describe?

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

    A question for tube-knowledgeable folk - how to best maximize tube life? Is tube life shortened by switching on and off, or rather by long-duration use? Here's the thing - I love my Freya +, but I'm finding myself hesitant to turn on music if I only have 30 minutes or so, fearing that I might...

    Donatello was my favorite too, even as far back as the infuriating TMNT NES game.

    Looks like they've replaced the TungSol 6SN7s with JJs as the available Replacement Tubes? https://www.schiit.com/products/replacement-tubes
