    So far Gumby is working out nicely. Two days of burning in while about 9 hours in the last two days have been under headphones and played through my main home theater. It is very resolving and detail retrieval is excellent. One more week to go before I decide to keep it or not, but looks promising so far

    Contemplating putting the Sony Hap-S1 up for sale. Not getting as much use as before. Have gone back to pc centralized source. Great sounding unit, but need to sell off some things to buy food next month! Looking to buy new Jaguar so I can get a better parking spot at the grocery store!!

    Welcome to my world. I'll see you at the soup kitchen. I'm thinking of the 2017 Rolls Royce Phantom coupe though. Has more presence and soundstage.

    Now more than ever, I want to hear a Gumby. Just to hear how it compares to Yggy. Did you get a black Gumby?

    It only came in silver. So I got a silver one. Sounds about the same as if it were black but actually I think the lighter color allows for a better transition from light to dark tones in the music.

    If he got a black one, then he has an inside track with Schiit, because they haven't been available recently on their website.

    I was fascinated by the Yiggy review. I loved listening to him pronounce Yggdrasil. But my reaction to the review doesn't have much to do with Yiggy. I'm already convinced it is one of the best DACs money (which I don't have) can buy. It was the guy himself. He seems like a very reasonable, level headed person. He makes me realize what a mediocre listener I am. I think my Bimby is pretty resolving. I'm sure Gumby is more, and Yiggy even more. But I just don't think I could ever appreciate the degree of resolution he describes hearing among different DACs. Well, my days of Golden Ears are in the past. I have entered the Old Geezer Ears phase of my life.

    I'm following CF's Gumby experience with interest, as I'm saving up for one. Anyone interested in a package deal on the content of my refrigerator? I'm moving to a new place within walking distance of the North Scottsdale Soup Kitchen and Sushi Bar.

    Excuse me for going off topic for a moment, but with Euforia I find I am preferring my pair of Sylvania 6SN7-WGT drivers to the Sylvania 6SN7Ws, for whatever that is worth.

    Question for CF: Would Euforia fit and be ok sitting on top of Gumby?

    The amp will sit on top of Gumby with no problem. I emailed tech support about airspace and was told that if the sides and back are open you only need a quarter of an inch clearance for air space on top of Gumby. So plenty of clearance for airspace. From what I hear the North Scottsdale soup kitchen is excellent. You must get there before noon to get the best seating

    Weird request! Anybody in southeastern Michigan have this amp and want to let a total stranger into your home to listen to it? I will bring my McIntosh MHP1000 headphones.

    Thanks. I was hoping you'd say no way, and then I could save money. Well, actually I probably just would have bought a bigger desk (((

    I tip the Kitchen's concierge generously and seem to have no problem getting seated.

    I send you dimensions so you can start looking fo desk Size: 16 x 8.75” x 2.25” http://schiit.com/products/gungnir
    I may be late for lunch so please ask Mater D to hold my lunch!

    The desk might clash with a color combination but a good coat of paint would take care of the desk. Now as far as those two hot blondes are concerned with the temperature being so hot where you are to begin with I don't know how much that of that heat this old body could take however since nothing lasts forever and what goes in between the dust to dust part sound like a great idea

    Many have stack their amp on top of their Gumby or Yggy. I don't like doing that though because I want to run my hand over the top of Yggy to get some winter warm.
