Vidar is about 25 lbs.
I got that right!
So, I went to listen to a prototype last night at the house, and I needed a source (I usually use a Fulla 2 or Jotunheim these days, which, yeah, are sources, but I wanted a multibit source). Luckily I had my trusty Bifrost Multibit hanging around. So I hooked that up, plugged it into my Surface Pro with USB, and got...nothin. USB wasn't even detected.
Thinking this might be a Windows problem (though W10, in general, has been really no problem, even in advance of their UAC2 driver), I tried it on my MacBook Pro. Nothin.
****, well, yeah, sometimes the USB boards just die, and who knew what I had in the Bifrost. I didn't have a non-USB source handy, so I shelved the listening session to tomorrow, figuring I'd bring in the Bifrost Multibit and swap out the USB card.
And when I got the Bifrost to the office, I found this.
Yeah. That's a 1.0 Bifrost board, with a 1.0 non-Uber 4399 board, with some bizarre, green-board, hand-soldered USB Gen 1 pre-prototype. Looking at it again, I realized this wasn't my Bifrost Multibit at all...it was an ancient Bifrost I'd been using at the old Odeon office for optical input only. The serial number? 11.
Now, If I can just find my Bifrost Multibit...
Ah, so that's 11.34Kg in real money.
14g heavier than Constanza.
Not light at all.
You win the trip! But don't count on first class air fare. 25 pounds for something that size is amazing and I thought my Parasound A23 was hefty, it's approaching Rag weight of 32lb at around 60% the size. The heat sinks are really cast iron LOL!
I presume you mean 140g? Just curious...
Plan A would snap at the joint around 10kg. So when you upgrade the rack make a little cat-fence.
I did my calc basically based on the Rag weight and the size... and mostly guess work.. Those heatsinks are really heavy!
Whether 14g, 140g or 1400g, that would make it a massive cat (22 - 25 lbs).
Obviously Jason, you are using the wrong Schiit!
Anyhow... With two Vidars at almost 23Kg and the space they need to bleed heath to the environment ... You need some strength and space.
Good to know.
Good transformers are heavy.
My Parasound Halo A23 weighs 28 pounds, take a look inside it. Vidar at 25 pounds and only 9 inches wide, that is truly impressive! I know it's an iron core and all, still how it all fits in there is amazing. It's been a long wait but will be worth it I'm sure. I just feel bad for Cozzi's freight bill!
Got my balanced cables and speaker cables today. All I need is the pair of Vidars! (And of course the pair of speakers...)
I will survive. No Sweat. My problems only begin when Constanza likes it to sleep on the warm dubbel Vidar bed.
