    Interesting observation, @Rensek . My gut feeling is Schiit wants to attract new clientele (as us 49+ year olds start dying off). I suspect North American & European teenagers have some of the highest disposable income (...though.... my CDN generation carries some of the greatest consumer debt [took us about a decade to dig ourselves out of it]). My hunch is market disrupters like Schiit want to introduce (comparatively) inexpensive HiFi gear to younger audiences, in hopes of building consumer loyalty (which Schiit-heads definitely are). Is Schiit hoping one of them sticks? Nah, I think that's shrewd marketing.

    From cradle to grave. Just like a good neighbour, Schiit Audio will be there. :ksc75smile::ksc75smile::ksc75smile:

    It translates as "Spam"

    I just selected a few words and pasted them into Google Translate. It’s an advert for gambling so I’ve reported it.

    The concept of "less is more" is in direct opposition to the "the Me Generation" who valued the collection of expensive objects to establish the pecking order. The Cooper Mini is a prime example of "less is more". Schiit audio gear serves a population who grew up eschewing the "Yuppie" ethic of being 'one up' on the Jones. A Ferrari and an F-150 are both gas-powered vehicles. If the task is attracting beautiful young supermodels in LA, or hauling firewood to your off the grid cabin, each has its place. Schiit does not care for the wealthy class who buy trinkets to impress their friends. What they deliver is a good old pick-up truck, which in the long run is a practical choice.

    Well, my Vidar may well be a good old pick-up truck but it certainly runs like a Ferrari.

    I feel the same way about my Mimby DAC and Vali 2 HP amp... Like the old Oldsmobile with a 454 under the hood.

    People bringing their own gear to the Schiitrmeet be like:

    My Yggy 2 is the USS Enterprise- going where no DAC has gone before.

    Pickup truck, Ferrari, VW Beetle or Farilane, just use the right tool for the job. That's why I like single-purpose gear.

    Jeez! You sound just like my father. No wonder that I internally voice you that way.

    I am curious how this is determined. By IP addresses? LOL Even when you order it's hard to find out your age unless a credit check is done. LOL again.
  15. Ableza
    I am honored. :)
