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

    The original Jot is bright, has a harsh overall sound, poor dynamics (everything is loud), and closed in soundstage. It probably sounds good with a gooey, unresolving DAC but I don't own one of those. The Lyr 3 is worlds better but the lack of balanced output prompted me to sell it as I just...

    Opening a Lyr 3

    Hey folks. I wanted to open my Lyr 3 and add in a multibit card that I own. I have a Jotunheim and I can get that open pretty easy by simply loosening the hex screw on the volume knob and removing it. However, my Lyr 3 has no screw on the knob so I have no idea how to get it off. Schiit...

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    The R2R 1 uses the DA-8 modules and the R2R 7 uses DA-7 modules. I don't know what the difference is between the two but I don't think the R2R1 destroys the R2R7s value. The old Reference 5 certainly did not destroy the Reference 7s value when they were around and they used the same chips.

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    I have never tried any of the consumer cards like Asus.  One thing to consider is that pro level cards have transformer coupled outputs which would help greatly in isolating your dac from your computer.  There are probably some consumer cards with this as well though.     Pro cards are...

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    Seriously, if you have no need for DSD and you have the space in your pc get a pci express pro sound card like the Lynx e22, RME HDSPe or Digigram vx222e.  Better sound and no usb related nervosa. I dumped usb last year (and a bunch of stuff like the wyrd, regen, Singzer f-1 etc) and I couldn't...

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

     $10k for a passive huh?  lol.  There must be something really special in the two silver cylinders in that thing.   Just to "arse-hole" this thread up a bit further, I've always thought that the "pre" in preamp meant "before" the amp section - "before the signal gets to the amp".  So I never...

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    I don't doubt this, like I said I chased 1704 dacs for around 10 years so I come from a place of love lol.  Perhaps "ills" is the wrong word as I have always been able to see why one would prefer the M7 to the Yggy.  I tend to view the Yggy and Gumby as superior because they do the high...

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    Yep.  The other one is some MSB variety that because I knew I would never purchase (due to the awful price/performance ratio) I didn't bother remembering the details.  I am pretty sure it was one of the older ones though, maybe a Diamond IV.

    I can't wait to read some impressions of the new module.  Hopefully it cures some of the 1704's ills.

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

      There is no reason to use anything like that since the Yggy has more than one output.  At no point was I considering running a headphone amp out of fixed preamp outputs.  The thought never crossed my mind.

      Likewise, I was joping that one of the folks that actually went to RMAF could tell us if the Freya will have a HT Bypass input.

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

        This can't be said enough.  Most "speaker only" guys ignore room acoustics completely.  Super chunks and absorbers completely changed my listening room.
