    Panzerholz® A DIN 7707-compliant hardened panel material made of a combination of phenolic resin and hardwood with a hardened structure. (DIN 7707 is apparently a set of standards for resin impregnated and compressed laminated wood.) I now can sleep at night....

    This is the thing that confuses me the most, where a fake/standard answer is expected or the conversation will not continue, as if this is the TCP handshaking.

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

    I heard Vidar+ Maggie 1.7 at Schiittr last month, it was very good indeed, no volume problem at all. The Maggie's sounded pretty effortless.

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

    I have been running a pair of LS50s with Jot as preamp and a single Vidar. My living room is about 9mx6m, and the system can be played really loud. Dual Vidars will probably give it a tiny be more control at loud volume, but I am happy when what I hear right now.......till I am not.

    Life after Yggdrasil?

    If it "costs almost nothing", why not try them out physically? The 15 day return policy isn't too bad and you get to audition how Schiit products integrate in your environment.

    I run my LS50 with a single Vidar and it sounds fine, but I am itching of getting a second one just for the fun.

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I installed my own Gen5 USB for Yaggdrasil, piece of cake if you are used to putting computers together or installing PCI/e cards or USB headers on the MB. Yeah, just take care of the static and everything else should be fine.

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

    Regarding streaming, I have been using Spotify for over a year and have been very satisfied with it as it provides me with a lot more opportunities to music that I would otherwise have missed. Spotify does one thing really right is that they provide the API to let you pull detailed info from...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Regarding rebooting the Yggdrasil, has anyone found any pattern? If I leave the Yggdrasil on for days and switching amongst my streamer, USB and optical (from my TV), it sometimes falls into a state where it sounds like volume is reduced digitally. The sound was less dynamic and especially the...

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    Yes, I use my Jot with Yggdrasil (balanced) and HD650 (balanced), but I did replace the standard power cable of the Jot with a 14awg (or, thicker) so that the bass extends a lot deeper.

    Would Modi multibit make more sense in a car application?

    You would only need to add a Jil, a Gadget and a DAC in your car to enjoy the benefits.

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

    How did you connect the Digi+ to the Mimby? Direct to the I2S pins?

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

    Is that a pi zero + digi+, and the i2c out direct to a mimby?

    Schiit Jotunheim Review / Preview - Head-Fi TV

    I think Jot deserves better power cable then the stock. The stock cable is a 18awg power cord, I was happy with it until I swapped it out with a 14 awg cable. The low notes hit a lot harder with more sense of presence. It's a $10 no-brainer swap.

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

    Just finished an "upgrade" to my RPi3/Hifiberry Digi+ Pro/Volumnio streamer into my Yggy. I added a 75ohm BNC socket to the PCB (had to wait for 5 week delivery at a min ordering of 10, so I have plenty left) and had a custom BNC cable made (Canare BNC connectors with Canare HD-SDI cable) along...

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

    I use an RPi3 with Hifiberry Digi+ Pro with RCA out (BNC on it's way), Volumio2, librespot. After the Gen5 upgrade to my Yaggdrasil, I find the different between USB and RCA diminished to a point where I only think they sound "different", but not necessarily one better than the other. The only...
