    Is there a reason that I should hold out for Loki Max? I think I missed something in Jason's post but can't put my finger to it

    Oh man, thank goodness I am patient! Looks like it will be either the Lokius or the Loki Max for me!

    4 silver ones left! Actually, you don't even need to order a separate wall wart, just let them know that you will like to have that changed to 230V in the order notes. Did that for two Eitrs, had no issues

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    Go for the Eitr, it did improve my Modi Multibit V2 (and even my friend's Topping D7s) greatly If not, sell your Modi Multibit and head for a Biifrost 2 since it already has Unison USB by default which should sound better than the Mimby+Eitr stack

    Now I starting to see the wisdom of CD players/transports compared to using a CD drive in a computer This is another strong case study of using a dedicated solution instead of a jack-of-all-trades Great, now I have an urge for an Urd too! :p

    Schiit Eitr impression and USB-SPDIF converters discussion

    Yeah, seems to me the Eitr is sensitive to such electrical changes but thanks for testing out the "separating other stuff to an audio power conditioner" idea; almost wanted to do that too Though I must say that as long I keep the Project Ember plugged in (but no need to switch it on 24/7...

    This is a good sign It means the Magni is so good that it is hair-raising

    New at Drop: Sennheiser HD 8XX

    Thank you! Am I right to say that the contents of a box of HD8XX is the same as the contents of a box of HD800S, just that they look different due to HD8XX being from Drop and HD800S being from Sennheiser?

    For those worried about ESS chips, it's more about the implementation of the chip rather than the chip itself that determines the SQ I have an Onkyo DP-X1A since 2017 that uses ESS chips but still can go head to head with current DAPs using AKM chips. This alone convinces me that ESS chips can...

    New at Drop: Sennheiser HD 8XX

    Congrats on your new house! Can I confirm what is the differences between a HD8XX and a HD800S in terms of packaging?

    Schiit Eitr impression and USB-SPDIF converters discussion

    More updates on my Eitr situation: 1. Am enjoying it! 2. Shifting some stuff to another outlet help reduce occurances of the Eitr blinking and stopping audio. Now at least my house's water heater do not cause this 3. LSR 305 speakers are still causing this issue whenever they are switched on/off...

    Nice, now I have another reason to buy a Jot2 :D

    Sorry, I just saw (was busy fixing up my Project Ember) Are you saying that the Jot2 can also act as a simple single ended to balanced signal converter like how an active DI box work? ;)

    Is Schiit still busy? They have not gotten back to me about my Eitr issues and I am unsure if I should send a chaser/update

    Hmm, I am not sure too about the noise or hum, if any they seem to be RF related

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

    Ah I see, am I right to say that if I am on single-ended, it is not possible to gain such benefits even with the use of a DI box?
