    Balanced Jotunheim w/ HD800?

    Is the Jotunheim a terrible pairing with the HD800? I'm looking for a more analytical headphone with good soundstage to round out my HD650/Jotunheim setup. I don't really want to buy another amp just to use with my next and final pair. I have a budget of $1000 or less for the headphone. I'm...

    How to setup a Schiit Stack

    Hey guys, So I just received my Schiit stack (Modi 2 Uber and Magni 2 uber). I'm pretty sure I forgot to purchase an additional cable. I did buy the PSYT RCA cable to connect the Amp to the Dac. But I didn't buy a cable to connect the stack to my PC. Which cable do I need to purchase to actually...

    Connecting studio monitors to unbalanced source

    Hi everyone, I am planning on upgrading my current speakers to some studio monitors (probably Focal CMS 40, because of their build and compact form factor) and this will be my setup: Schiit Modi Multibit > Schiit PYST RCA > Schiit Sys > Schiit PYST RCA > Schiit Vali 2 (How do I put the...

    Schiit Magni to Behringer HA400 (double amping)?

    **Forgive me if this is a dumb question** I have a behringer HA400, I've run my Schiit Magni into it to provide multiple outs, albeit with some quality loss. Before I start using this set up regularly (for testing headphones and for listening with friends), I want to make sure nothing's going...

    What sound card or DAC/headphone amp to buy?

    Hi everyone, I have asked this before, but after selling the headphones I was using back then (I didn't like them), I didn't use headphones anymore that much. A month ago however I bought a Philips Fidelio X2HR headphone and I am just in love with them. However, I don't have the equipment to...

    Schiit stack + DAW question

    Hi guys, Thanks to the plethora of useful information on the forum I was able to narrow my search for quality headphones and the necessary electronics. I have a PC with a mediocre onboard audio. Striving for higher quality audio I've decided to buy a Magni + Modi combo bypassing the integrated...

    Should I turn off my amp?

    Welcome HF members! I just got my new Modi 2 and Magni 2, my question is should I turn off the Magni 2 amp when I leave for 30-45mins (about 4-5 times a day), or just leave it on? (Ofc I'll turn it off when I got to sleep). Thanks in advance.

    Who has used the Peachtree Nova 300 as a headphone amp?

    I'm in the process of upgrading some stuff and I'm really, really tempted to go for the Nova 300 because it just seems to do a great job at so many things. But my alternative is to the route of separate components, including a Schiit Gungnir MB and Mjolnir 2 stack. I want both an excellent...

    Amp recomendation for ZMF Eikons

    First, I own the Chord Mojo but heard it may be underpowered for the Eikons but couldn't really confirm this elsewhere; So, I'm currious if anyone has experience with the pairing and not just power wise but sound wise too. Second if it is underpowered, what amp would ya'll recomend for the...

    Schiit Jotenheim and mrSpeakers Ether Flow

    I have been in and out of the headphone thing for about two years. I get in and then lose interest and sell everything and move on. Then I buy all new stuff get excited and then sell it and start all over. This latest iteration is the Schiit Jotenheim and MrSpeakers Ether Flow. What a great...

    Foobar2000 DSD Playback

    I was messing around with the Foobar settings and noticed the "DSD" tab is set to PCM. When I change it to DSD, I get no sound. My question is this: If I have the foo_input_sacd component and I play a DSD file, am I actually hearing a representation of what DSD sounds like? I'm afraid I'm...

    A question about Hifiman Edition X v2's, and my system in general

    Right now, I'm running HE-560's connected to a MAC 1900 amplifier, which is connected to a Schiit Modi 2 Uber, which then connects to my PC. The first thing I'm curious about is the difference in audio signature from the 560's to the HEX v2. I generally prefer neutral sound signatures and can...

    Which is best pair with HD650? NFB-11 : $340 Jot: $520 (both are total price include shipping and fee) I don't have balanced cable now, but not sure how much is it better than unbalanced, is it worth it for HD650?

    Schiit Fulla 2 Impressions Thread

       Schiit's Fulla 2 is made to fill a niche for those that want a small desktop DAC-amp that does it all and does it well, but is also extremely affordable.  For $99, I don't think there is another DAC-amp on the market that offers what the...

    yggdrasil - gungnir MB - bifrost MB - a terse, ribald comparison

    Having all four of these Schiit multibit DACs is a considerable privilege. Comparing them to other DACs with printed words is challenging at best. These need to be heard, preferably in level matched A/B comparison to other DACs, to fully appreciate the advancements achieved by Mike Moffat and...

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

    Here we are at the beginning of a long overdue journal of my audio life since 1967, when I sold my very first audio product. It was a modified Dynaco Stereo 70 amplifier, which I had tweaked to drive my Quad ESL speakers, a tricky deal as they were very revealing of less than ideal amps, not to...

    A supero-inferior shot of the Schiit Magni 2 Uber! This is the most "beautiful" radiograph I have produced! There is little image noise, and blackening is consistent all around the amp! This goes to show that a lot of milli-ampere seconds AKA dose creep can really help. (I do not advise using dose c
