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

    I know this is late, and since Loxi Max is probably already well along design stage, probably a waste of time, but I thought of a feature that would be incredible in Loki Max. Effectively, combine a Loki Mini with a few more bands of EQ adjustment with a fixed level, defeatable tube buffer (like...

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

    Any new rumors of progress on the CD Transport? I’m about to add a second Aegir and upgrade to Bifrost 2. If anyone is in market for a Like new Saga OG with a bunch of great tubes, a like new Mani or a like new Bifrost gen 5 MB, hit me up in PM. I’ll make you a great deal

    I stumbled onto this thread and read it from beginning to end, then ordered a full Schiit stack sight unseen (Saga, Mani, Bifrost MB, Vidar, Loki). About to upgrade to Freya S! Edit: I have upgraded Vidar to Aegir.

    I think it will be incredibly dependent on your loudspeakers efficiency and whether it wakes up with low power. I do feel it is a little underpowered for me, but I have Lores in a big room and definitely not nearfield.

    Great brewery, I loved their Ghost Pepper beer from a few years ago. Right across the river from where I reside in Bangor. Do you live in Maine too?

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

    I think progress is good, and the motorized pot is a welcome addition, but I don't feel these products bring enough to the table for me to upgrade Saga. I really was hoping to see a Saga with proper tube gain, as in add a second 6sn7 and provide in addition to the passive mode and tube buffer, a...

    I have used jRiver, it isn't nearly as polished as Roon. To me, Roon is worth the 10x premium over a half baked cobbled together software system.

    Thanks for the update, Jason. This is why I trust Schiit. You guys refuse to release product before it’s ready. Keep it up. I need a new table, but will wait patiently until you’re ready!!

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

    We enjoy it, Mike, otherwise we wouldn’t be here. Can you set the record straight, though? Should we expect the sound to change on your DACs over an extended period? 1-2 hours, 1-2 weeks, 1-2 months? Longer? 1-2 hours makes sense. Longer than that seems like a design flaw that makes me not want...

    hahaha, it is of course, the "silent upgrade" Yggy that some dude received with an A2 board in it 6 months before release that has been on for 2 years. OH NO! The power went out. Now it sounds worse than Mimby.

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

    We aren’t too far off then. I’m questioning the claims of “months” for the Yggy. I even read somewhere where someone had the audacity to claim “just wait until it hits the two year mark”. I think these comments are detrimental to sales of the device. If simple uptime defines continuous...

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

    The psychology of this makes me giggle. Basically, you are creating confirmation bias by stating unless you are a connoisseur you might not hear it. Who is going to admit, or will want to admit to not being a connoisseur after spending $2400 on a DAC. I have to say, if this rumor about Yggy is...

    Yes, Mike says the DAC chips need to be temp stable to sound best. Some of you claim that takes 2 months, which stretches credibility to the max.

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

    This kind of stuff, understandably, drives people nuts. I really wish people other than Schiit themselves wouldn't speculate about silent updates. From my understanding the next Bimby upgrade we should expect is a Unison USB update, which Schiit will certainly celebrate here on the forum since...

    @Jason Stoddard, any new news on the Sol? I think last time you addressed it, the first run was planned for March. Do you have any plans for an upgraded pre-amp to release somewhat in concert with Sol? I am completely sold on Sol, assuming the wow and flutter measurements are reasonable. Do you...

    I just don’t think there is any benefit or value in recommending an amp no one has heard based solely on speaker efficiency.

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

    That’s a simplistic way of looking at it. Sensitivity is only one factor in amp and Transducer pairing. Depending on how the crossover works, and how wide a range of ohms the transducer makes at different frequencies, even a high efficient design can be hard to drive. Alternatively, a speaker...

    Can't drop a bomb like that without explaining why. Many of us use this product, so what was your issue. Fundamental design flaw of the Saga, or one off issue with your unit?
