I feel the same way. One of the reasons I like Schiit as much as I do is their constant commitment to innovating rather than putting out another "me too" product, to adopt Jason's own terminology. There's something fancifully satisfying in knowing my amplifier sports a unique topology realized with discrete circuitry. Actual effort went into designing and developing the product, and it's not just the same as my neighbor's in a different chassis. The same is true of Schiit's True Multibit DACs.
