    The reviewer will not win awards for his prose, that's for sure. While I agree with his conclusion, I don't agree with his characterization of the Bifrost Multibit compared to the Mojo. I really dislike the Mojo. It's too warm and soft and light in bass. The imaging and soundstage of the Mojo are actually good. If the Bifrost Multibit is weaker here, it is only by a small amount. That does not makeup for the Mojo's aforementioned weaknesses. The Bifrost Multibit's energy really shines in comparison. The music feels more real and alive. It's both more accurate and more fun.

    Don't encourage him...

    Actually I don't think any form of encouragement is required, as it appears to be a perpetually self energizing feedback and feedforward loop.

    But they're complaining about the location of the power switch. That's just background noise around here.

    Good thing there's no LED's on the Sol, then we'd have real complaints :wink:

    Keep us informed on your new bifrost multibit listening. I'm a modi-multibit user who has been fence sitting on an upgrade for a long time, and a little bit of that elusive audiophilia nervosa could push me over the edge...

    @exdmd ... That's the exact same conclusion I came to before I went the Schiit audio route (it was either this company or JDS Labs [pleasing design, responsive sales staff, US-assembled, THAT gloriously-shmoooth knob]). My little brushed-aluminum box upgrade path's at its zenith. And I'm satisfied. Now, I consider other boxes for 100% whoo whoo want (0% need).

    It's fun to rediscover my music with good gear. :ksc75smile:

    That's all I didn't like, I can't imagine a worse place for the switch for the reasons I gave earlier (without being stupid and saying something like on the arm or on the platter), the rest looks great.

    I'm used to Schiit switches fitted inconveniently on the back of the chassis, but my Bimby is on all the time and for the Jot on top of it a reach over would be OK as it's within arms reach (if I didn't have another DAC on top, a matching empty Hammond case on top of that, a die-cast model Spitfire Mk Vb beside that and a rubber ducky on the empty case :dizzy_face: )

    Please link or explain Sign Magnitude.

    Edit: I read Baldr's thread that was linked and think I grok Sign Magnitude now.

    Oh and on behalf of America, thank you to the Danish people for Carlsburg.

    No cartridge is going to mean a whoooole lot of emails and returns. Yes the returns will be from people that don't read the description. For me, having to manually setup a cartridge would be a dealbreaker. The dust cover would be important for me to set assorted junk on but not a deal breaker. :D

    Easy enough to build your own dust cover out of wood I would think. Or buy one of VPI's dust covers if they fit.

    I think the Sol is aimed at those who already have experience with vinyl and likely have extra cartridges. I have an AT-120 (a Bday gift) and the stock cart (stored) as well as a MP-110 mounted. I took the time to learn how to set up the table and align the cart. Was it easy? No, frankly it was a pain in the schiithole, but I learned a lot. People opting for the Sol will likely be equipped to set it up (I have a cheap force measuring device, an alignment chart, etc) or will pay someone to come set it up for them.

    If/when I get a Sol I'll probably opt for another Nagaoka with the MP-150.

    I have a short explanation on my website, but it's kinda not that easy to understand, hope you got it....

    I',m glad your like Danish Beer, but I'm actually more fond of Belgian Trappist Beer....

    Everyone complains, whether you complain, or complain about the complainers, or like me, complain about the people complaining that someone else is complaining. We all need to get over ourselves. Totally all right for someone to question a design decision, and if not now and here, when and where?

    I do think a LED light would improve the look of it. I was thinking something like this?
