    Schiit Modius discussion - $199 balanced AK4493 DAC

    Does the Modius really sound better when being fed a dedicated USB power line? I like the idea of just running one USB cable to the Modius for sound and power...

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    Just curious if the transformer hums on anyone's Bifrost 2? Mine is very loud. My Asgard 3 transformer also hums, but I can't hear it from my computer chair like I can with my Bifrost 2..

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Just checking, anyone else Asgard 3 get mad hot on the bottom right side? I was actually thinking of putting my Bifrost 2 on top of my Asgard 3, as most of the heat of the Asgard 3 is dispersed on the bottom right, at least for mine. With the Bifrost 2 underneath it heats up the top so much I...

    Nice! Yea I can see that. What pads do you like on the Aeolus now adays, per suede or stock? I can't decide between the two, I bounce back and fourth all the time.

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

    I'm just looking at getting a simple all in one for my work computer, was curious though, does the multibit Jot 2 have unison USB? I don't see it listen on the website, just a mention about unison on the ESS DAC. I ask because unison in the past has eliminated noise from my graphics card, at...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Maybe I'm crazy but I find the perf universe suede much cooler than the leather ones. I find the leather ones do not really breath as well as the univ perf suede.

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    There's some SW51+ left still for sale on super best audio friends, from my research it seems like it's a killer budget amp for the Aeolus. Bit of a tube amp with some solid state like qualities, I haven't received mine yet, but I've heard enough positive opinions from people I trust to be...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    I should curb what I'm about to say and acknowledge that my input is from research only and I haven't had the chance to hear my Aeolus out of tubes, so I guess essentially useless my info is haha. BUT from what I gather something like a Bottlhead Crack w/ Speedball or a Felis Echo (just using...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    I don't think a tube amplifier will give the Aeolus planar quality bass or detail retreival of a LCD-X unfortunately.

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Stick the multimeter in the cups and cover it with your hand, pushing down the multimetere with your hand on the edge of the pads will create a seal.

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    After a month or so of owning my Aeolus I'm bout to ride off into the sunset with it and quit the headphone game. I'll be back when I start shoping for a tube amplifier with it, but just going to enjoy it how my chain is now.

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Anyone else's Aeolus does not clamp evenly? No matter how much bending / rebending I do (I've reset the bend about 3x) the right cup in this photo just wants to sit higher than my other cup. It sits on my head just fine. Just checking if anyone else experience this and I can tell my OCD to...

    Schiit Asgard 3 - Impressions Thread

    Can a Modi Multibit fit on top of an Asgard 3? My Asgard 3 doesn't get that warm, so heat won't be a concern. Just the size.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Does the Atticus put ear pressure between the driver and ear like some closed backs or Audeze / Mr Speakers open planars have? I'm pretty sensitive to this, due to allergies my eardrums are pretty picky, so any sort of ear pressure from a closed back seal might be a no-go for me. But I was...

    Schiit Modius discussion - $199 balanced AK4493 DAC

    I forgot does the Gen 5 USB in Biforst 1 have galvanic isolation? Might be a better option for my budget.

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    What do you think is a fair price for Bifrost 1 w/ Gen 5 USB? Just seeing what my options are for someone who's balling on a budget. $300? I think Gen 5 USB might solve my grounding issue, so somehow weird me things $300 for a new DAC versus paying $60 for a USB dongle is a better investment.

    Schiit Jotunheim 2 - Impressions Thread

    Any thoughts on the Jotunheim 2 and Modius (bifrost out of my price range for now, but maybe in the future) combination? I listen to a HD 600 and looking to get an Auteur or Aeolus in the near future. I love my HD 600 out of my Asgard 3, but want to go full balanced setup due to some grounding...

    If I'm looking for a neutral/warm with good dynamics sound profile, which pads should I be looking for with the Auteur? Also if anyone has an Auteur for sale, PM me. Thanks!

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Yea, sometimes I think a Hifiman or Focal might be a better call for me. That said, I currenlty run my HD 600 off my Asgard 3 and enjoy it, a headphone that is popular amongst OTL tube owners. Sounds like if you go solid state with these 300ohm headphones, you best get something in the upper...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    I thought this soid state vs tubes on the Aeolus discussion were interesting. I have had my eyes on the Aeolus for a bit, but I like the simplicity of solid state. I was a bit worried this might limit my enjoyment with the Aeolus, as I hear it sounds really good with OTL tube amps. I have a...
