    Schiit Two Channel Clubhouse

    I've been looking for a central place to discuss Schiits offerings in the world of two channel equipment. Specifically the Saga, Freya, Vidar, Ragnarok and of course the Schiit DACs used in the two channel environment.   No passwords or secret handshakes required, just an interest in two...

    Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

    Thought I would start a new thread specifically for impressions from new Cavalli Liquid Carbon owners.   I just received mine a few minutes ago, so no comments as of yet. I'm putting it through it's paces using my Headphone / Amp test tracks on Spotify.

    Speakers In Use With Schiit Ragnarok

    Tube Rolling. Worth The Effort??

    I own a couple of SS amps and a couple of tube amps.

    Schiit Happens.....A Lesson In Customer Service.

    About two weeks ago I purchased a Lyr 1 ( Black ) direct from Schiit Central in Valencia , Ca. Unfortunately I found that this amplifier had a very low level of static on one channel. I contacted Customer Service at Schiit by email and Nick got back to me within the hour. We did some basic...

    Best Headphones To Pair With The Schiit Mjolnir

    OK, maybe not the best, but can I get a few examples of balanced headphones that would be a good match to the Mjolnir.   I like the headroom that the Mjolnir can provide.
