    You're right - I was convinced it read differently :s. :beerchug:

    Yes, sometimes things are not clearly stated. Glad that I could help you.

    In my family we have a saying, "If you think you can not afford "the best", then do your self a favor and get the best you can afford."

    I have no doubt that Schiit equipment is the equal of what the frAudio elite (effete?) consider ultra bitchin' high end. I have my druthers for looks but I can not electronically fault any thing made by Schiit.

    I am listening to this right now. It arrived today.

    A vocal goddess. My Emotiva XDA-2 is not out putting music so the music is coming from my PIoneer Elite (Effete? LOL!) SX-N30 'phone jack. Some thing went goofy with the XDA-2 while I was away at work...

    After that, there is this -


    Ella is my absolute favorite female vocalist and second over all to Francis Albert Sinatra.

    I have no clue what happened to my Emotiva XDA-2. Dammit...I will figure it out this week end. Gremlins?! I do not have a cat and Rocky, my son's Labratard likes Ella and Frank so he would never go near the equipment. Besides, he has not got opposable thumbs...:beyersmile:

    Doesn't require opposable thumbs to screw something up!

    Next step, Bob Dylan....
    Unlike Ella, Bob cannot sing.
    Reminds me of Kris Kristofferson. Now, there's a pair.
    Both can write great songs, but can't sing for peanuts.

    I've got no real clue what happened to, not 1, but 2 Not-Always-Dependable amps. The first, a thumping Class AB integrated and a second Class D integrated DAC/Amp. The 1st turns on and then throws up it's electronic hands and switches to standby. The 2nd is just a black box with knobs and buttons and not much by way of signs of life.

    Both sounded fine to my ears.

    Decided not to go 3rd time lucky and so I tried some Schiit (Modi Multi, Freya and Vidar). Plus I picked up another integrated AB amp that is a bit old, reviewed well and lives up to its rep.

    On other matters, old blue eyes has got a couple of spots in my collection. Just the way it should be.

    I just tried the Emotiva XDA-2 again. Nope. I will look at it more on the week end but perhaps the audio gods are trying to tell me some thing? Probably that I am an idiot but I will over look that and look "deeper" for divine guidance. 'n' Schiit...

    I can not discern "signature sound" on any thing and only know good music when I hear it reproduced well, but I can say that I do like the looks of my XDA-2 with the blue lights. I know, such a superficial toad...

    Still no black Valhalla 2s listed. It takes time and I have other things to pay for first, I know.

    In my yoot, I did not much care for Dylan's voice but now I do. Especially with the Traveling Pillsburys!

    Great songwriter, terrible singer, but his voice had a folksy charm that people of the day seemed to like.
