    This Schiit is Bananas! $99 Schiit Magni Amp and $99 Modi DAC

    Quote: I am trying to gather as much data as I can so that we can fix the issue. I am totally committed to providing something not just venting. Once I have a complete roundup and test against Linux and Windows systems I expect to reach out.

    This Schiit is Bananas! $99 Schiit Magni Amp and $99 Modi DAC

    Modi problems, good news, workaround without reboot.   Report:  The Modi sounds great for a certain period of time. I have tested the device from USB powered hubs, directly to  two different Macbooks and I definitely have an ISSUE.   Background: I am far from a MacOSX expert but I...

    Project Sunrise/PS2 Tube Rolling Thread (and maybe even Project Horizon and Project Ember)

    Just got in some Japanese 12AT7 tubes,  lucky me included in the lot were 2 Marconi super-rare made in Japan tubes.   And i found some GEC B309s,  i guess we should have a flood of tube reviews soon!

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Quote:   Are you sure it isn't the headphone cables microphonics and not necessarily the tube? Did you try and switch the tube to the other spot and replicate findings?

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Quote:   If you just got the tubes, they do need some burn in,  secondly it takes a while for the Lyr to warm up.   From my testing, I do think the 7v Tubes PCC88 7dj8, seem to have more "air" and "separation", these are usually a steal since very few designs call for a 6dj7...

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    Quote:     I believe this correlates with the Freq Response graph Dan put up. There is some dip 40-85Hz range then a quick rise.  I might be confused.   http://www.mrspeakers.com/image/data/mrspeakers/MD%20frequency.png

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Quote: I would totally agree on that analysis of the two tubes.  Definitely the Tesla has more bass tonality.   For what it is worth, I have the Russian set of tubes from Schiit and they have almost no bass response very airy.

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    I have the JAN Philips 6922s, but i think the BEST bang for the buck is   Tesla ECC88 6DJ8 1960s NOS (NOT JJ) - M. Pairs MINT NOS - Rožnov Prod   Should be 30 bucks for a matched pair  I believe they sound better than the JAN Philips

    "Mad Dog" by MrSpeakers, modified Fostex T50RP review

    My experience/tests with Maddogs.   You do not NEED an amp.....  However, for the most part, with the better amping you provide there is a scalar relationship with quality on the MDs   Amp 1: Lyr, this is a great pairing, but note that the Lyr is a great tube rolling device, there is...

    Project Sunrise/PS2 Tube Rolling Thread (and maybe even Project Horizon and Project Ember)

    Built my PSII   Here are my findings.  I have tried both 6 volts and a 12 volt tube.   6v: Telefunken 7dj8:  Echo or Reverb like bass, runs cooler than a 6dj8.   JAN Philips 6922:  Good all around, better bass than the Gees Tesla 1960s 6DJ8: Very nice highly recommended at 30-40...

    BitPerfect (was: Audirvana Alternatives)

    Another finding, when you do itunes cloud download it seems sometimes files are saved with a .m4p extension.  These items do not seem to play with Bitperfect.   Unless....you rename them to .m4a,  i changed the extensions and nothing really broke. and now songs that were not being played...

    Interested in Schiit Lyr+Tubes and Maddogs for LCD 2

    2 week used Lyr and Maddog modded T50rp. I would like to trade these for some used LCD2s Rev2.   I have the original boxes and packaging and receipts for all this equipment.   Everything is working flawlessly, however I have decided to migrate to an all DIY handmade setup with...
