    LOL!

    Seriously, this is way cool "marketing." Who else in the industry does this, my fellow Schiit-heads?

    What about bartering. Is that an acceptable method of payment?

    I just came across this article on new GaN usb power supplies. I know others have talked about the benefits of GaN for transitors in Class D.

    https://apple.news/ASpEtVEugTxq_9KzDnJrqmA

    I wonder how these new GaN power supplies will compare to linear power supplies like the ifi ipower, the Apple Walwarts etc for noise. Will they operate at a higher frequency pushing noise out of the audio band?

    Anyway I’d love to hear your thoughts @Jason Stoddard if you test any with the Modi3.

    Seems like a missed opportunity not call these Schiitshows...

    You might attract an even weirder crowd when you call it a Schiitshow.
    Not sure if that is what they are going for.

    Having a hang-out where you can listen, compare and learn a few things is really cool.
    Luckily I get to hear what I`m missing at Pietro`s house or I would be jealous of the peeps living near the Schitr.

    I find that bartering the requested about of dollars in exchange for the item works the best. :wink:

    :dt880smile: Oh man, 7 Sagas available at $299. Must resist.

    Resistance is futile. :smile_cat:

    GaN is a semiconductor device material change, not a power supply topology change. GaN devices can be used in linear or switching power supply topologies, depending upon the desires of the circuit designer. So, GaN power supplies is meaningless without knowing the circuit.

    I believe he is referring to the SMPS, like the chargers in his link.
    Compared to MOSFETs GaN FETs are faster and have lower on resistance for a given voltage rating. So the SMPS can have both higher efficiency and higher switching frequency - hopefully easier filtering.
    Case for case.

    Yeah, and the [REDACTED] message has been [REDACTED]....:triportsad:

    Like Scatman John? Pretty sure baldr would say 'sounds like ass'! But good throwback to the 90s.

    Well that, and the people who like to play with schiit. If you're not familiar, count your lucky stars and don't google it.
