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

    speaking of chat / skype. My wife and I dated at work 18 years ago, sat in the same aisle of cubicles and she did not want anyone to know (that actually lasted 9 months) that we were dating I wrote a small application (I called it Secrets) with 3 text boxes and one button. You typed your...

    Luxury & Precision (LP) Portable USB DAC/AMP W1 and W2 (0818 New FW Available, Update Info on Post #1)

    i don't have a ruler here, it is 6 inches plus one of the plugs long so about 6.6 inches? so 12CM (excluding plug) from Penon is probably correct

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

    IEMagni arrived yesterday (complete with Built in Corpus Christi sticker!) and replaced my work Magni. It's nice to be able to use IEMs at work via my Schiit stack. So many choices now at work: 3 inputs - (Wyrd > Modi > Loki mini > IEMagni) USB via phone and USB-c to USB-a OTG adaptor...

    Like all my purchases in the past year i did not 'need' this. I check new posts every once in a while to see if any new topics interest me. I saw this thread sunday, read a few posts, quick research and ordered the w2 right away. Mind you, like many of you, i have an over abundance of devices...

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

    My first 'portable' for work had a 300 baud modem. Pager goes off around 2 am, couple the phone, dial in, watch 2 80x24 screens paint one pixel at a time, log off and drive 30 minutes to the data center. I can semaphore flag faster than 300 baud

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

    Bought a BiFrost MB Gen 5 USB in July 2017. Always had an excuse for not upgrading to the BiFrost 2 and the change in wording on the web site yesterday prompted me to finally order it. The original will be gifted to a friend (who also received an Asgard 2 (purchased 9/7/17) when I purchased a...

    Back in the late 70s I worked for a grocery warehouse on the perishables side in CT. We had a produce inspector we would always hang around, especially the days that the jet-flown fresh pineapples arrived from Hawaii just 2 days after being harvested.

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    Would not be very difficult to develop a script to post messages, is there a prize besides GE tubes that would make it worth while? Years ago in the days of pagers a peer walked away from a design session and would not listen to reason. I wrote a quick script that sent a message to her pager...

    I never got the age thing. I tell my wife that you can change any attribute but age is set in stone. You can add stuff, remove stuff, reshape stuff, change color of stuff etc., there is nothing you can do that will ever change the fact that you were born on a specific date. She actually asked...

    Ordered myself a xmas present of the AFC 2 and a blue dragon cable from Moon Audio. I read the entire thread. For my desktop experience I will be using a Lyr3 (Allo USBridge Sig --> Schiit BiFrost MB --> Loki Mini --> Lyr3) which the forum shows should be more than sufficient. For my...

    I would purchase one of these. I recently picked up a USBridge Signature Streamer and I now plug this into my BiFrost instead of coming from my PC.
