    done, and your advice was spot on
  2. Tuco1965
    Likely get an RMA to send back and fix, if it is at fault.

    Awesome!!!! If you don't do it that way, apparently it's an incredible pain in the ass.
  4. dc-k
    agreed, also it's much clearer where the five longer screws go!

    I heard the same thing. Contacted their support group this morning and just waiting for a response.

    I'm almost surprised that you haven't heard from them yet. Sometimes I've had emails to my questions returned within a few minutes. Perhaps they are arranging an RMA for you. I guess the Modi will be traveling with you for now.
  7. roguegeek
    Yup. Bringing it back home with me tonight so I have something for the weekend, although I'll be gone for most of it. Oh well. Probably going to take this opportunity to see what stand-alone DAC pairs well with the HD 800.
  8. StanD
    I see you have an XBA-3, how do you like it?
  9. roguegeek
    Love it! I got it for $80 which was ridiculously cheap at the time. It's probably the most balanced out of all the pure balanced armature XBA models. Very neutral for an IEM. It makes me interested in hearing their hybrid line.
  10. StanD
    I got them when they first came out and paid much more and don't regret it at all. $80 is a super steal. They're a little bright but don't have any annoying resonant peaks and sound very nice. Wow a triple BA for $80, I'm ready to pass out. I bought mine over the counter at J&R in Manhattan. When I bought my HD600's there much later the same saleslady remembered me. Now she want's to sell me a pair of HD800's. Not so soon, I picked up a pair of HE-500's a few months ago. And as usaul after I buy something the price drops, although in this case not nearly as much as your goldmine. I don't think the Bifrost price is going to drop because of me - lol. The price is already uber good.

    I just looked up why I paid so little. It was through Best Buy and it was factory refurbished, not new. So that explains the price somewhat. Yeah, I remember specifically aiming for that IEM because I heard it was slightly bright, which I like.
  12. StanD
    They are 12 Ohms so by the 8X rule for damping ratio, they work best with an amp of 1.5 or less Ohms. That rules out many if not most smartphone from delivering the best bass to the XBA-3's They work relly well with an Asgard 2, but they look funny sitting next to it. If you use a cellphone to drive them, try it with your Asgard 2 and tell us how much better the bass is.

    That was the problem i was having but i only noticed it with Battlefield 4 or if i play a song in fubar2k via ASIO while i am streaming (or buffering) anime/movie. I think its an issue with ASIO. I know when I ran WASAPI, the same thing it would kill the sound in anything besides fubar.
  14. roguegeek
    That's right. I remember you bringing up that issue before. Did it resolve itself or are you still getting the cutting in and out thing?
  15. StanD
    I'm running my Bifrost using only Schiit's USB drivers with a small 11 inch touchscreen Windows 8.1 tablet. No glitches, works perfectly. You can't say this little notebook has any muscle either, it's got a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU + 2 MB cache and 4 GB of RAM.
    I run Foobar2K and Google All Access Streaming by way of the player plugin to Chrome. This little piece of Schiit manages to drive my Bifrost.
