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

    That sounds pretty insulting to me, I prefer to think of the small Schiits as being like Lotus Sevens. Lightweight steel chassis, minimal Aluminium bodywork, high performance - low cost.

    Except for the "breaking down all the time" thing, I like your analogy. :)

    Well, Colin Chapman designed his cars for speed, not longevity or durability.

    It was my daily drive (not too good in the snow I'll admit).
    It only "broke down" once, I was a bit over-enthusiastic with the revs pulling away at traffic lights and the standard Ford alternator pulley exploded.
    I replaced it with a welded steel one and all was well :thumbsup:

    apart from the holes and dents made by the pulley shrapnel

    Metaphors, analogies, I like my Schiit, and if anyone was seriously offended by my choice of vehicles to describe my Schiit, so sorry.
    They say if your only tool is a hammer, then the world looks like nails.

    If your music library is primarily 16/44, as mine is, then a Schiit Multibit DAC will make those files sound as good as is possible. The funny name, the antics of the co-founders, and the rest are just thick icing on a very good cake. I always heard that you could always identify a British motorcar, just following the oil drippings...:oncoming_automobile::red_car::race_car::nerd::ksc75smile::ksc75smile::ksc75smile:

    How can there be a Lotus 7 that doesn't have the license KAR120C ?

    NO6 would have done me,
    mine (a S2 Super Seven like KAR120C) was 3VKO, 3MAN would have been better. :wink:

    So I live in the icebox of America, it's fricken cold up here, and my office is cold as Schiit. No lie, I've been using my Schiit stack as a hand warmer the past few weeks. My company has a strict no space heater policy, and while I could break it without getting caught, I'm a manager and probably shouldn't. I sent my Vidar in for warranty repair last week, and I think ill be putting it in my office when gets back to me (at least till it warms up). I snagged some Elac B6 2.0 when they were half of on Amazon. Should make a nice office heater/stereo system.
