I think that they just wanted to show that you need two real balanced outputs if you want to run the Vidars in mono. Which sucks for me, as I am in the market for some powerful monoblocks, but I only have single ended outputs from my two preamps. A single Vidar is not powerful enough for my speakers sadly.

I think the picture is just to give a sense of size, nothing more. I'm sure that's not a recommended setup.

I don't think Jason and Co. has changed their stand on black trim. I'm pretty sure they only offer it when they have an original that has a blemish but can still be finished in black. You'll see Yggdrasil offered in black finish every once in a while as an option.
That's what I thought, too, but that many blemishes on Vidar to start out? I guess, when they're figuring out the tooling.

I never bought audio gear because of what finish it had, but so many people seem obsessed with a black finish on their stuff.

Jason stated the Vidar would be available in black by design. It sounds like a strategic decision to me, not one based on finding ways to use flawed metal.

Is it valid to ask whether the EITR is upgradeable to some future USB Gen, in the same way that Schiit DACs are ?

Hi all,

Just signed up to the forum. I've been lurking on this thread since late last year waiting for the Vidar release. I'm proud to say that I'm finally a Schiithead, ordered up a Gumby, Freya, and Vidar yesterday and can't wait for them to show up. The only problem I have now is my Anthology speakers are finished yet Guess I better get to work on those so I have something to play with once my new Schiit shows up.

Looking forward to other reviews and thoughts of the Vidars. I will be posting my thoughts down here as well. Thank you to Jason and Mike for making some affordable gear and running a company that is different than most of the audio world.

Chris

Just when I had left the idea of USB as a solution and started migrating to BNC as an option they pull me back in.
Now I have to start wondering all over again. I`ll end up with audio-anxiety-attacks if this continues :)

Anyway...Vidar is a beauty. Eitrs looks could do with some more love but overall it`s a great achievement.
Congratulations and my they sell like hot bunns (as the dutch say)!

I'd love to upgrade my Bifrost Uber to Gen 5 and Multibit at the same time, just a little worried they have a new Bifrost upgrade coming out soon...

I think I read elsewhere on this site that something was coming for the Bifrost, I wonder if the Gen 5 USB was it?

Since the Eitr is the same size as a sys and only has a power led on the front it can sit behind components. It looks as good as every other Shiit product :)

It looks like the wyrd to me. And that is the least attractive piece of Schiit I own. The powdercoatinglook is very different from the other polished alu cases.
It looks good enough...but its not a sexy box )
