    I think they have said many times that they don't want to get involved with user controllable software of any kind. I think infrared remote tech is very old, relatively easy, no maintenance, and probably cheap. Good luck overcoming those arguments with this company.

    I'm just hoping to see a combination remote for saga&Freya and Bifrost 2.

    You could get a small Bluetooth to IR blaster and code your remote to it. I do this to run my Integrated amps on my smartphone, works like a charm

    Share a link on that please. Not familiar with what you are talking about.

    I use something like this. You need to code each remote to the hub. It'll work with amps, AC units, anything that can be coded on an IR receiver.

    The IR blaster is the Harmony model and it does work but it can have issues. Fighting with my Harmony after my Apple TV updated. I think it’s a good model though, especially if you are only concerned with controlling product from just one company. The Harmony app is poorly conceived but it works. That is the model but it could be better executed. Is it just that hardware manufacturers don’t know anything about UI design?

    Why can't you add in a power indicator on the front panel? I'm sure many of your fans like to have this option.

    OK gotta ask this. How much better is the classic bifrost multibit than the current modi-multibit? seems like for only $100 extra dollars this could be a f%$#in' good deal!

    See current b-stock for what I mean:

    even better deal is the Classic Stack (both in black) if you are looking for an Asgard2 as well (for $99 more.).

    I think the USB alone makes it a better option then the modi multibit. USB gen 5 is supposed to be very good, and you would be able to send it in for Unison, or do it yourself (if qualified)..

    I am in for about 165 on my goodwill Bifrost. Had I not already sunk money in that, and a fulla 3 the other week I would have leapt at the Bimby stack.

    The 4490 is very good, I would place it slightly above modi multibit in terms of detail, resolution, and decay while being slightly below modi multibit in terms of image depth, and fullness/richness of sound.

    I would expect the Bifrost multibit to best both.

    Not sure if I was still reading the Dune saga at that point. Had read Dune 3-4 time before I married in '72, by the '80's I think I'd moved on. Great post!!

    Possible that the transport will transport anything besides bits that originate on a plastic disc? Like for instance bits that originate over a network connection, hm?

    Come to think of it, "transport" may be the wrong name for something that mostly reads an optical disk (or a vinyl disk). Maybe "reader" is the more apt term?

    That should be MOAR multibit, skal det ikke?

    I'm still surprised about the number of people who know about you, but don't know about the book.

    Well, for only $100 more than that I could get the Asgard 3 (for $199) which just might be the best deal on a regular priced item at Schiit right now.

    $548 for a multibit bifrost and an Asgard 3. Really is there a better deal in all of audio, folks? Yep, I'm frothing at the mouth again.
