This is interesting. I rather like the precise volume control on my Saga. I very often adjust the volume by only one or two clicks. To be honest it seems like it defeats the purpose of having so many relay steps in the first place (I say that as someone who almost exclusively uses the remote for volume control). In other news, Schiit has my Vidar in for servicing for the transformer hum I mentioned a while back. I dropped it off at the Schiitr during the last SchiitrMeet (which I confirmed with them ahead of time was okay) and it took them a while (about 3 weeks) to transfer it over to their warehouse. I don't think that's normal necessarily, but worth taking into account for anyone else who also is ever thinking about dropping off something for servicing at the Schiitr. In any case, this still saved me having to pay for shipping and I'm happy about that. I am very much looking forward to putting Vidar back into my system which has been gathering dust in the meantime. Hopefully the transformer hum is taken care of. Also thanks for all the Saga S/+ and Freya S/+ impressions!
