The Pavlovian hit rate on the Schiit Website is reaching epic proportions
Are You standing over My shoulders? I just went to their website to check for additions to the Lineup
No, I am just doing the same thing
Keep in mind it's not quite 9 a.m. here on the west coast, and it is Monday morning...
coffee first, new products in a few...
If the preamps drop today I'll be pleasantly surprised!
Ragnarok 2 is the only thing that will pry away my existing Ragnarok. For all it's flaws (or engineering decisions that I disagree with), the price performance of the device is stunning. My criticisms are all things you've you've heard, it's a device that really needs to sit in a rack for it's size and can't.. Can I give you my wish list?
Power switch on front? Ya, I know and I use an Isobar to get around it now.
Heat sinks that I can let hang off the back? Mine runs 20° hotter in a rack. I'm OK with devices that run hot; but a 20° swing for taking it off the rack seems a bit much.
100W, rather than 60? Using 92db efficient speakers, I can get ear bleed volume levels with 60W; but having a volume knob at 2 or 3 o'clock just seems wrong. I'd like more overhead.
The improved speaker/headphone switch/indicator mentioned. I can piss off my wife all by myself without cranking Van Halen through the speakers at 2am (alcohol may have been involved). A simple binary switch would be fine by me, I'll never want to run speakers and headphones at the same time.
A 12" piece of Schiit grey tape. 6" that dims the leds by 75% and 6" that does 100. Black electrical tape works for now.
I'd use and order the remote; but it isn't important to me.
Doing all of the above as an upgrade would be awesome, though unlikely.
Happy Halloween Everyone!
May your Schiit be imminent!
Nope, there will be delays, as usual. I just got first articles for Saga this morning. Realistically, we're looking at next week, after qualification today and ramp-up at the PCB assembler and in-house.
Freya first articles aren't here yet; I won't speculate on timing for that until I see them.
No reason to be alarmed--just slow-going at the PCB assembler, since some critical people have been off in October. That's the way it goes.
Modest sale of RCA black plate 6SN7 tubes right now...
I've rolled many 6SN7, here are my personal favorites:
Melz 5 hole anode
Psvane cv181 Grey bottle
Thank you for the update Jason. Now I can relax for the next week or so.
Yeah me too I was afraid my left mouse button would break by hitting refresh so much. We have been anxious for the pre amps, but I would rather it be later than expected and built right, Than Early and wrong. Also The west coast Time does not seem to matter to some of the Guys on the Schiit team, I have gotten responses to technical questions in the middle of the night, My suspicion is they have Borgs working there that need no sleep. Probably T 1000's.
Thanks for the Update Jason.
Guess that was the trick!
Can't wait for the Treat!
Thanks for the update. Good to know Murphy isn't a Zombie!
I still vote the Schiit Fulla is the best thing in audio ever. Probably my favorite audio product I have ever purchased, I still can't believe how well it powers/plus silky sounds it gives my Fostex T50RP Mark 3's.
@Jason Thanks for the update. Good luck with the launch.
