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

    I firmly believe that while one cannot please everyone, there's nothing wrong with setting ones sights on a more realistic goal of pleasing me. :smirk:

    I'll get back to the thread about it. Both DACs have the multbit chipset, so it ALL sounds "good".
    Oh, it's nice. Like having black cats, my iCamera's auto-focus struggled to lock onto the surface. The false vents in the Bifrost is weird; however, the DAC seems to run cooler than my ModiMB (weird).
    I'll post a picture after I scrub the personal meta-data off the image (the bloody image-info has coordinates of my home and my name)... unnerving. :triportsad::triportsad:
    I'll keep an eye out for it! Interesting...
    My hunch: if one can afford the kW-h cost, leave the gear on. I turn my tube amp off to (supposedly) prolong my tube life {{{a family friend visited us last night and took issue with that strategy. He tried to convince me that turning the tubes on-and-off shorten tube life... that HIS recording gear and DAW doesn't have an on/off switch. I think what's really happening is somewhere between these 2 mindsets}}}. I look at my new classic stack. According to the motherboard pictures, the Asgard 2 seems to have 4 points just behind the headphone jack that dissipate heat into the chassis. That part of the case is significantly warmer than the rest of the amp. The cooling fins on top of the transform makes the (attractive) silver logo warm to the touch.
    I know you're right, @G0rt . In the city, my selection of FM is... meh...
    Unless Schiit offers some kind of analogue device that has VU meters, I might end up DIY-ing my own contraption ( @Jason Stoddard ... is there any market-appetite for a Loki-2.0-VU-meter creation?).
    Wellllll, crap. I remember seeing a wall poster on a documentary about Bruce Power (a nuclear power facility on the southern edge of Lake Huron). Our future home's juuuuust north of the predicted fallout zone. Thank you, Mister-sam6550a-suzy-sunshine. Sheesh. :ksc75smile:
    That's true and it makes me sad. There's a WKRP-like radio station out of Wingham, Ontario (link) that my cougar-woman and I (ScubaMan, or cougarbearcat?) listen to when on the North Bruce Peninsula (Venus Flytrap & Les Nessman LIVE). There was also a CBC podcast by Terry O'Reilly, about the death of radio (and rebirth of boutique[?!] radio) (link).

    The realization of world peace, a cure for cancer, and the global eradication of hunger would be easier. :grinning:

    That's right. Be a lamer, throw your hands up, avoid the seemingly difficult stuff and only take on the easy stuff. You won't go far in life with that attitude, @bcowen !

    My goal has always been to excel at mediocrity. Am I succeeding? :stuck_out_tongue:

    So much so you were promoted to good and thus failed.
     
  9. bcowen
    Damnit. Why does stuff like this always happen to me?

    It's a gift! :wink:

    Good idea, but you don't want to live in a vacuum.

    Perhaps we should consider the greater good here before rushing off to judgement

    LOL! I should probably limit the vacuum to what's between my ears. :laughing:
