    This Gungnir owner wouldn't mind an upgrade path to Gumby 2. Just saying.

    There may be no Schiitr impressions because there were only a couple of people there on Friday. Because of this lack of attention, we are cancelling Aegir and Ragnarok 2. Sorry.

    (Kidding, of course. Relax.)

    It’s not surprising the turnout was thin, because it was raining, and it’s about 3X more sucky to get around in SoCal than when it’s not rainy, and that’s on top of it being 2X more sucky on a Friday evening, and that’s on top of it being around 10,000X more sucky than any other place on the planet (well, in this country, anyway.)

    I know some of you wouldn’t mind seeing the meets moved to Thursday. If there’s enough interest, I can definitely do that. Saturday…………..maybe. Convince me. Saturdays pretty much guarantee I will miss some of them, because sometimes Rina has plans that I’m not going to get out of.

    However, I will be leaving the Aegirs and Ragnarok 2 at the Schiitr for next week, though, so if you’re in the area you can come by and hear them. They were there all this weekend as well.

    As I am well married, doing it on a Saturday isn’t necessarily easy either - unless you do it early. “Hey, I’m going to run over to so and so’s in the morning. I’ll be back before you finish your coffee.” The world is full of males in a similar predicament. Besides, it’s a reasonable suggestion - hard to say “no” to as she probably wants some quiet time anyway.

    The trick is to do it early. Like the car guys, you can call it “Schiit and Coffee”. (You know, there’s something natural / balanced that’s right about that, too.) Anyway, it starts early, ends before phones start blowing up with “Where are you?!?!?”

    As I’m in Central FL, it’s unlikely I will make it; however, I do have some practice negotiating similar matters. When played on an infrequent occasion, 60% of the time this card works every time.

    Very true, but the board photos and data sheets show that these are soldered surface mount devices.

    Light Dims, silver edition. $6 on Amazon:


    To paraphrase a line my father-in-law learned while serving in Korea:

    "Shower, Shave, Schiit"?

    That is what I use on my Schiit and they work wonders!

    You don't want the bright white LEDs giving away your position (poor light discipline). Then again using Schiit gear in range of adversary is probly absurd on multiple levels. More of an on the FOB activity.

    By the way the proper order is Schiit, Shower, Shave. :smile_cat:

    Yes, but I was hoping that by modifying the order, the attendees would shower and shave BEFORE arriving :wink:

    Was real tempted to hit the Schiitr meet last week, but on a Friday with rain threatened... well, no. Thursday, much more likely. Just my 2 cents.

    Any difference in the house sound wise? I do not need any other bells and whistles apart from a solid head amp. If sound is same i do not need to wait for a 2. Also, Rag is not upgradable like jot or yaggy? I had a wrong notion for god knows why!
