Separate names with a comma.
How about Convergence Filter?
"Authentibit" for authentic multibit.
I really appreciated this chapter, not because it is about trademarks and marketing, but because it pulls together summaries of your amp topologies and multibit DACs in one place. I have read your other chapters on these individual subjects, having the summary in one chapter is very helpful. The addendum on the mega-combo-megabrrito filters and differences in the four multibit DACs completed the summary for me.
Even though I am not an electrical engineer I do appreciate your creative work on amplifier topology and anxiously await the release of Aegir into the wild. Although I hoped for it in January, do take the time to "get it right the first release", as I am not going to wait for the second or third production run to buy it!
@Jason Stoddard -- How about 'HD Multibit' or "Multibit HD" where HD stands for high depth?
**PM me and I'll tell you where you can ship my Gumby.
How about "Big Multibit"? Then it could be the Schiit BM....OK, I'll leave now...lol
What is the purpose of a patent then?
It sounds like there is protection, unless you mean there is not pragmatic protection for a smaller company based on lack of enforcement by the USPTO.
"The right conferred by the patent grant is, in the language of the statute and of the grant itself, “the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” the invention in the United States or “importing” the invention into the United States. What is granted is not the right to make, use, offer for sale, sell or import, but the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing the invention. Once a patent is issued, the patentee must enforce the patent without aid of the USPTO."
I'm not a patent attorney or anything, but I hear a bit about it from my neighbor who is a patent attorney for a multi-national company.
The costs of enforcement are prohibitive, while in the meantime you have disclosed all of your tech to the world at large in the course of obtaining the patent in the first place, not to mention the costs associated with the latter process, which are stupid-level.
and it only takes a ridiculously small alteration to circumvent the patent
I don't own any of your products. I started looking at your junk because I'm in the market for a DAC for 2 channel. The difference in your DAC tech is very important to point out as there is a hot mess of DAC marketing to sort thru that is full of fancy claims & names. The info on your site about what "Multibit" is doing, and why you probably want it, is very important. That differentiator needs to be POUNDED to separate from the pack. I like the SingularCombo words for this stuff. TrueBit, RealBit, MusicBit... all of those seem to flow into the discussion of what It is, what It's providing, how It's different / better than "the other guy", etc.
And then there's RealSchiitBit, TrueSchiitBit, TheRealSchiitBit... but that might be close to jumping the Schaark.
What DAC do you have now? I had never heard a MultiBit one, not really any high end DAC period, and just took delivery on a BiFrost Multibit Monday. It is an absolute revelation. Considering how good this sounds (through all inputs), I can’t fathom how good Gumby and Yggy must sound.
I would like to place my vote for Baldr filter as well. It would be poetic.
You just have to search for "Norse burrito". If that's not a megacomboburrito, I don't know what is.
I think TrueMultibit™ says what needs to be said and is easily registered.
EDIT or, of course, TruMultibit™ if you want to be a heathen...
We shouldn't be top hard on Mike. After all, if the USB Forum were the ones to name it, we would have UBurrito 3, Deluxe UBurrito 3.1, UBurrito 3.2 Gen 1, UBurrito 3.2 Grande, and Double Layer UBurrito 3.2 Gen 2 with Sour Cream - all to do pretty much the same thing.
