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

    Congrats Tom, I'll have to stop by sometime to hear those relays clicking away when you change the volume. For now I can only imagine how the Freya feeding into BH Crack will sound with my 650s.

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

    Hey Tom, when the coaster comes out can you order an extra set of parts for me? I know you're a wizard with BOMs. I'll bring some scotch for the VUs and some cash for the parts, then we can have some beers and solder up a couple amps!

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

    @Paladin79, or Tom as I know him, is one of the nicest dudes I've had the pleasure of meeting and I've never had the slightest inkling of dishonesty from him. He has invited me to his house several times and gave me food and tasty beer, not to mention help with cables and electronics, so he's...

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

    I absolutely love the Wheel of Time, despite it's faults and the drawn out middle section, it is my all time favorite fantasy series. I've read the full series 3 times and the Jordan-written books 4 times. I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen right now and I'm on book 8. It's a great...

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

    My job title is Graphic Designer, but I do all of the IT and customer support as well. A few examples: I set up our office wireless network and repeaters, I set up our on-site NAS and off-site backups, I install software like antivirus and Microsoft office for other less techy employees, I set...

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

    Someone still has to support the internal folks and more often than not it's the IT guys, at least in small companies. When you work IT at a small business, you are the only support.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Better than what though? At some point you're going to be replicating the signal that's coming out of the amp perfectly at the headphone and you can't get any better than that. Most cables aren't active. People say that silver wire increases treble, but I would wager it's just degrading bass...

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

    I wanted to chime in to say that I sent my Fulla 2 in for repairs. It was a day-1 purchase and had very tight USB ports and a noisy pot. I ignored both of these things as I rarely adjusted volume on the Fulla 2 and I never unplugged it. On April 5th the main USB input stopped working unless I...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    I also listen to tool, tesseract, eagles and Fleetwood Mac plus many others like between the buried and me, Metallica, led Zeppelin, Rush and the who. On my setup the hd650s sounds amazing for these types of music. I have sheepskin leather earpads for mine though and that bumps the bass up a bit...

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Thanks to Tom @Paladin79 for helping me with some VU meters and custom RCA splitters today! His setup for testing cable materials is pretty great. Didn't spend too long testing them out, but I couldn't tell them apart. Maybe some of the other folks he has coming in to test will provide better...

    @OldRoadToad Here's your solution to VU meters! Meters provided by my friend @Paladin79 who helped me wire them up to the little circuit board and made me up some RCA splitters so I could hook them up to the pre-amp out of my Jot. They are in a little cardboard box for now, I'll be making a...

    Buy "OSSIC X" or not?

    It seems like they should have spent that money on manufacturing and shipping the pre-orders to the people who gave them the money, instead of spending it on marketing.

    Buy "OSSIC X" or not?

    So, shouldn't the money you guys paid in the Kickstarter cover the production and shipping of your item? If not then What was the money going towards?

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Just wanted to chime in and say I'm still loving my HD650s with brainwavz sheepskin pads, fed by Eitr > Mimby > Jotunheim balanced. I've stuck with this same system (other than adding Eitr) since August 2016, when Jot was released, and I don't feel any bit of upgrade nervosa. This system has so...

    I'm halfway there, enjoying every minute I have while I'm still "young". Got married last year to my girlfriend of 13 years. She should be getting a transfer back to Michigan soon, so we'll be buying a house and moving to be near family and friends again. Things are looking up!

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

    He has read most of them already, I would just read some catch up synopsis and then jump into book 12. I misspoke earlier and said book 11, I forgot there was 14 books, not 13 lol

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

    Smsl sa50 + micca mb42x + Dayton sub800 + Amazon echo dot = about $280 and completely wrecks any smart speaker out there, bar none. Unless you want something compact, but don't expect compact to sound good.

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

    Some high quality y-splitters should do just fine. I have some audioquest solid splitters and they are very good.
