Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    That's REALLY helpful and the first confirmation of being able to lower the output power I have yet found for any new equipment.

    Which access point are you using?

    And I did a perusal of their forums and didn't see where this topic was even mentioned, but I'll look even deeper now that it seems to be in there some where.

    And which hardwired router are you using?
    My 'combo' unit is acting flakey and I should probably upgrade the wired side as well.

    Thanks for the reply

    I tend to be sparing with the use of lights on audio gear.

    I do, however, usually incorporate a simple neon HV pilot lamp on my tube gear, just so I can remember the thing is on from across the room, and to verify the HV supply is up to voltage and ready-to-go.

    Blame it on my OCD...

    And I guess I missed all the other wifi router power advice as well.

    Thanks for the leads and suggestions.
    Now I have plenty to investigate.

    There is a mountain called the Eiger, some of you may recall the movie The Eiger Sanction years ago. That is pretty close to the pronunciation I would think. Classic Latin Caesar was prounonced more like like Kaiser, the German version of the same word, in Russia it was Czar. Things change a bit coming over to English.

    Yeah, that's how I understood the previous posters answer to my question, but I wasn't sure my understanding was correct. Thanks for clarifying, very helpful.

    Ubiquiti has a forum: https://community.ubnt.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/Forums
    and a help page: https://help.ubnt.com/hc/en-us

    A quick Google search returned these results:
    https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1233488-reduce-unifi-ap-signal-range
    https://community.netgear.com/t5/Ge...-router-wireless-signal-strength/td-p/1038758

    I found all of those within a couple of minutes...

    Kewl! Thanks for those links, yet a few more avenues to pursue.
    And I finally found (on page 135 of the Ubiquity manual) a reference to the radio setup.

    This helps a whole bunch more.

    @dieslemat asks if the MJ2 is a good pre for Vidars.
    My answer is yes.

    Thank you. I just got home and was wondering if I should scan these sheets.
    There were at least two sheets with slightly different ad copy on them. The other one said, "Lower power. Higher price. Is this Schiit R&D at its finest?" The message at least is essentially the same. It is interesting. (Jason said, go ahead and reproduce them for head fi.)

    I arrived very late in the day so the Aegirs were out of service because one of them was flaky. Jason, Mike and Jude were all running around and doing interviews, so I managed only to catch them for about 20 minutes before a panel discussion. Bonus: Mike's wife was there.

    I asked her if she was up to her arms in junk at home.
    She responded, not junk but --
    "Precious items?"
    "Precious items. Speakers in various stages of construction. Circuit boards. Boxes and boxes of CDs and DVDs he hasn't looked at in ages."
    "I'll be more than happy to take a few of those CD boxes off your hands for ripping."
    "No, he wants them, even though he could never find anything in them."
    "I'm the same way. I spent hours looking for a Bach piece I have so that I could get someone the sleeve info."
    Mike jumps in: "You were looking for a codpiece?"
    Me, to Mike: "Okay, your golden ear certificate is taken away."
    Mike: "No, I just found an appropriate place to make a comment."

    And so on. Hey, if you didn't expect potty humor with this group, you've really misunderstood them!

    I asked Jason why he wasn't giving away coasters as Schiit schwag. Jason: "I don't know. I didn't think of it." (I don't know if they'd really do this -- it could probably get expensive.)

    Mike commented that they could give away an electrostatic headphone amp board, as a jab at Jason. They don't fight fair. :)

    I wish I could have heard those amps when they were working. Jason said that they might be out as soon as January, to which I retorted, "That means November." Jason, to Mike: "He knows us."

    Someone help me out here because I really don't know and I want to.

    Why is a 20w stereo amp exciting? Seems like sothat would power some small bookshelf speaker and that's about it.

    I'm seriously asking because I don't know. 20 watts sounds relatively tiny considering my current speakers are rated for 150.

    It is because it is 20 watts of class A audio...

    I have to say when seen like this I really like the name Ægir :)

    I just don't have a Æ key on my keyboard.

    X 2 :wink:

    So for me my Klipsch KG 4 at 6 ohm would pull 30 wpc class A with monoblocks, for $1600!

    94 db 1 watt x 30= loud as hell.
