    This reinforces my observation that keeping the headphone/speakers cables short and fat, makes me happy.

    This and also applies to the power cables, but for different reasons.

    Will internal photos of Aegir be posted? Curious to see what the inside looks like. :smile:

    I don't believe I've seen that one before, I'm somewhat of a Sinophobe when it comes to electronics (a primary driver to me become such a Schiit-head). So take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    The few pieces of Chi-fi I've bought over the years have always been very disappointing in performance and quality (Oppo OPDV971H [the internal DAC/preamp is unusable with a "wow"-like volume fluctuation issue] and the Bravo V2 and FiiO E6 headamps both of which have all kinds of audible hiss and noise). The Oppo, I paid $20 for to use as a CD transport anyway and is paired with a slightly modified Modi Uber which works just fine.

    Since it is passive you are probably just fine if all you need is 2 sources in. And my comments about rewiring or repair regarding the switch witch are likely just as applicable to the Little Bear.

    Are you happy with it? If so that is all that matters.

    Hey all, it's another SchiitrMeet tonight, so if you want to come by and talk, I'll be there.

    No huge sekrit products to show this time, but we'll have production Aegir and Vidar on Magnepan 1.7s for you to listen to. Or, even better, bring some of your own gear.

    As usual, it's 6-10 at The Schiitr, 22508 Market Street Newhall CA 91321. Sorry, no flying cars or teleportation devices are available. At least not yet.

    No other 8th dimension stuff here either, which is probably a good thing.

    Uncanny, now that's interesting. I've been ruminating on those .7's of late and wondering exactly how the Aegir and/or Vidar would sound on them (although my Ragnarok should be okay as well). I've been headphones only since 2004 but the itch to get back to in-room speakers is strong of late with me. My first boxes were KLH 5's in 1970, followed by AR3a's, and then Maggie Tympani 1U's. Although over the following 5 decades I ran the gauntlet of Dahlquist DQ10's, Vandersteen 2C's, Quad ESL's and 63'#'s and on and on, the sound of those Maggies driven by all tube Dynaco's I built from kits haunts me as still one of the best sounds I ever enjoyed. Unfortunately, until you install a Schiit'r here on the east coast...

    Maryland is nicely located in the middle of the East Coast if your looking for Schiitr locations!

    Who wants to plan a group trip to Vegas, with a Friday road trip to the Schiitr.

    That's my shopping list, 1.7s and a couple Schiit amps. Bummed that I can't make it tonight; will the Magnepans be sticking around for a while?

    Unfortunately - Airline would not allow me to bring Andromeda II as a carry on - so i'll be missing this one :wink:

    Would *love* to hear your impressions on Vidar / Aegir's driving the Maggies.....
  15. Licht
    Ahhh! I was just wondering of how Aegirs sound with my 1.7s which is now driven by two Vidars.
    Bit too far from Japan.

    Looking forward for the impressions.
