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

    I have read very good things about the Nagoaka MP110. Also The MP110 and Mani combo are supposed to be very very good. I saw this review a while ago, this guy is entertaining but I enjoy his videos and he is using this combo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U5ANqGccmk And a Follow up Video...

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

    Schiit is on a roll. I recently inherited my Dad's Old Vinyl so this is impeccable timing, I am Adding a Jil to the List of future purchases. With My luck as soon as I finish ripping the last one the MB version of Jil will be released. On a Side note reading the Faq. I did not know that Nelson...

    You walked right by it on the way to the backroom to play with the freya :L3000:. Asgard is a few months old. needed something that i could use when time in the chair was short or i was not listening to music. I did not want to kill the tubes in the Valhalla 2 while listening to news or...

    Nice work Timster. Those concentric Tannoys are sweet. I agree with johnjens power and signal breakout wherever possible. In the Networking world there are also screw in mounts that let you loop velcro in which I really like, called saddles. which may work for areas where those traditional...

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

    This was mentioned a while back on another thread, of course it was a prototype with no indication it would see the light of day. I agree, the voodoo that happens in that little box Known as the Modi MB is scary good. Another discussion had a while back was the viability of a smaller amp...

    Eitr? first run of the basic Manhattan project? Mike mentioned a Prototype Bifrost MB board he was testing, there was some talk of a Tube Phono Stage a while back. Then there is all the other things they don't tell us about. Might need to unplug for the weekend to stay sane.

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

    The Draw to schitt gear is the insane value for dollar. When you start getting into 4x the price or more there is a lot of gear that may or may not be as good. To each his own, if you have the money and like it go for it. No Judgment here.

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

    There is a Difference in swapping out audio components and putting in the time and sweat in to refinish metal and wood as well learning the way mechanisms work so that you repair, refine and possibly even improve it. My Electronics Knowledge is Technician level not Engineer level so not a lot I...

    It's a Prototype. I am guessing like with other things schiit is feeling out the crowd. I doubt a protoype is part of the double flusher.

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

    I get the Lengthy project timelines. I have a few of those myself from work on cars (possibly getting a project soon), renewing restoring some older firearms/modding new ones to of course audio and electronics related projects. Of course the things that I am familiar with gets done fairly quick...

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

    For Lp's I follow this rule as well especially since many new pressings are crap. I agree with Albeza, Complete and total access of a digital collection is undeniably a major selling point to digital especially when (although Impressive) you don't have to sacrifice 3 entire walls for your music...

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

    I have a Bimby with a Freya Now. It is really something to be heard. It's nice to see the affordable kick ass gear making it to shows. It is also nice to read that the pre release Vidar is playing nice with speakers on opposing ends of the spectrum. A Mini Vidar in a desktop form factor would...

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

    Looking purely about power and not personal preference of SE or Balanced. Max power rating of the Unifi is 140W. and the Vidar pre specs is 200w @ 4 Ohms. Plenty of headroom in one chassis. If memory serves me right in Mono Schiit is only rating the Vidar @ an 8Ohm Load. One could probably use...

    +1 on the Elac Unfi Although if you have a bigger budget there are better. The Adante's look nice but in that price point there are obviously many more options. The Unifi's are Driven Via a Bimby or Mani, Freya and I am using a Emotiva Flex amp. its the half pint version. it drives them well...

    The Ferrari The Ferrari. I drool over machines at that level. Just Like I drool over the Audio Jewelry. I Probably will not have either but there are cars out there that get you above 80% of that insanity for 33% of the price.Just s in Audio. If you have the money go for it because I did I sure...

    This.   The Discussion of HT Pass through was debated and addressed back when the Freya was released.   It will be debated and questioned but Schiit seems to keep a Minimalist approach from what I can tell, It falls into the Power switch up front category.Sure it could be done but at what cost...

    If I remember correctly Baldr said there may be an Incognito Eiter. not an announcement. So those with keen eyes or golden ears may be able to spot it.

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

    Considering that the only way to get a Multibit board to fit in the Bifrost Chassis was to not go with a discrete circuit, If memory serves me right they had to go op amp based strictly because of the the size constraints of the chassis. Balanced Circuits which from what I believe Jason has said...

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    They are nice search Engines/ Sources but I have spend my time behind a bench and I have yet to see the use either of those sources to produce anything that support that support this, however  If we are going to get down to the physics level that's not where I was approaching this from and I get...

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    The Definition of an analog signal is it is continuous in time and value which a digital signal /"Square" wave is not. TOSlink Uses NRV of which NRVI used by USB is a derivative of. Still Digital. Again I have seen nothing that supports what you re saying. if you have references please provide...

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

      Not sure if its Possible to squeeze a MB into a fulla 2 but after the Bimby I did not think Mimby was possible because there was not enough room in the Bimby for discrete so we don't really know. However if it is possible sign me up for the portable hand warmer. The Only thing is considering...
