Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Hey @Jason Stoddard , would you object to me writing this statement when I write about the Fulla 3/HEL?

    "There's nothing more satisfying than a huge, beefy knob that is easily within reach, and is sensitive enough to account for minute manipulations. If only everything had large top knobs that could easily be controlled with little effort."

    I have to ask because... I have juvenile friends, and it sounds like I'm talking about something else entirely. :smirk:

    Yes, I understand/understood that completely, sorry if my post above wasn't clear on that. That topic has been discussed here a time or two.

    I merely meant if you do decide to start including origin wording in some supplier contracts you can head off matters like this afternoons conversation before they happen. Maybe have suppliers identify origin of parts in their bids. All depends on what kind of rabbit hole you like. :)

    Ah, got it!!!

    That makes total sense, so I've passed this along to Alex.

    Totally fine by me! (But then again, our name is Schiit, so.....)

    @Jason Stoddard, what are the chances of a modi 3+ in the next month or so?

    you know you are definitely in trouble when you run out of numbers AND letters for the serial numbers for all the customization options for each model. :)

    aside: just noticed the "+" in the serial number for Freya+ preamps. no "normal" company would do that :wink:

    About the colour I like the red and black more than the previous grey/black and silver because it is different in audio equipment. What I'd really like is a Schiit colour (whatever it is, even ugly brown), something no one else does, like Manley does with it's blue-ish equipments.
    Schiit is supposed to be different than the others, isn't it?

    Less than zero.

    lol... You might as well start another thread in which juvenile minds, such as mine, may contribute to your proposed statement so as not to drift this thread into oblivion.
    No extra credit for pointing out that this thread already spins wildly out of control with very little provocation.

    Modi 3 was the best purchase I ever made in audio. I have been very impressed with it. I still prefer Asgard 2 over Asgard 3 though. I might give the Heresy a shot, but I will probably just lose on return shipping and re-stocking fee, when I go back to my Asgard 2... lol

    Maybe not though, never know. Asgard 2 just suits my ears so well for some reason.

    would magni 3 heresy be worth a try if i already own asgard 2? or just be happy with what i have?

    My company requires all suppliers to state and confirm country of origin for every component we buy.

    I was just in a search for something for the office. The Heresy and the black Modi might be the one for my future Aeon 2. It's a pity there's no balanced output though.

    Agree. I'm blown away by the soundstage and Dynamics of modi 3. It's just head and shoulders above the R2R-11 (my previous DAC, which got relegated to bedroom duty). It is breathing life into my old Vandies.

    That said, I wouldn't mind a $150 modi 3+ that edges out the Topping D50 measurements wise :)

    I'm pretty excited actually

    I don't know much about the inner workings of amps, but aren't the new fancy THX amps (like the Massdrop) use the THX modules? Aren't they more or less OP amps anyways?

    Heck, I've been waiting for just a black Freya+, but it's been like waiting for Godot. I like black/red combos, but quite possibly wouldn't pass muster with my wife. At least in the living room. Man cave is different.
