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

    I'm very happy driving my Magnepan .7s with one Vidar. Two hundred watts into four ohms is more than adequate for my needs. On a second system, A pair of Aegirs drive Harbeth 30.2s without any difficulty. As always, YMMV

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

    Having been in the hobby for over fifty years, I have a large collection of cables. I can honestly say that I don't have a clue who made them. Of course, at my age I have difficulty remembering what I ate for breakfast.

    The value of my Freya S just declined. On the other hand, stock in 6SN7s just went up.

    Does it mean I'm an old phart that I started with a Bowmar Brain?

    I cut my teeth on top 40's WLS in Chicago in the 50's and 60's. Moved to So Cal, and smoked a lot of weed to KMET and KLOS.

    One of the advantages/disadvantages of being an old phart is being first in line for the Covid vaccination. I got my first dose today, and the whole process was extremely well handed by my health care provider. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there.

    @Jason Stoddard I've been following progress on the transport, but may have missed it. Is the form factor of the transport something I can stack on my Freya S??

    Schiit Modi I bought used giving me trouble [help ASAP]

    If you purchased it used I guess you have to trust the seller that it was working when they sent it.

    I'm anxious to try it with my Harbeth 30.2s. Or perhaps put together what John Darko calls a Klipschiit system. I currently have a Vidar.

    While continuing to ponder my ripping / streaming dilemma, I decided to attack the basics of my Montana cabin system. I had pretty much convinced myself that the Ragnarok integrated would be the right choice to drive my Harbeths, and also have open ended and balanced capability for my...

    I'm currently using my laptop as a music source. But I would like to try and eliminate that and add something that will stream and rip CDs. Does anyone have experience with the Bluesound Vault 2i ?

    No, not at all to me. Yes my LS50s have more pronounced mids, but at my age so do my ears. These seem to compensate for my hearing deficiencies, and as such are very pleasing to me. Better highs and better lows, and my ears enhance the mids. What is not to like. And the WAF is very high. They...

    Hi folks, Haven't been around in quite a while because basically nothing has changed, until now.:L3000: Yesterday I received a pair of Tannoy XS8-Fs. They are gorgeous floor standers, and have a sound to match. To my 70 year old ears they have better bass and a brighter top end then my LS50s...

    I feel the same about my Freya OG, and my Gungnir Multibit OG. Other parts of my system may change, but those two items are my end game.

    Same here. I refuse to drive from the O C to the Schiitr on a Friday evening. I would have to leave at 2 PM.

    I have a pair of Wharfedale 10.1 center speakers that I got at a substantial discount. The 10.1 bookshelf speakers have one six inch woofer. The center channels have two. Both speakers have the same frequency response. The centers work great as bookshelves, stood on end. They are a bit...
