Schiit just came out with their new hardware EQ, the Lokius at $300. I just ordered the silver.

I used to have the Loki but gave it to a friend, because it wasn’t balanced and my chain was being upgraded to balanced at the time. While I don’t ever EQ, maybe more out of laziness and streamlining my listening experiences or whatever, but it’ll be cool to add this hardware to my desktop rig for the heck of it.

I always liked the Loki’s EQ somehow more than what I was able to achieve in software. No idea why. Maybe the hardware based EQ is better somehow, or maybe the Schiit engineers just designed bands that pushed each part of the range just right.

In any case, I’m looking forward to playing around with it, and it’s nice that it has balanced ports to keep my whole chain balanced. The old, smaller Loki wasn’t balanced.

Just FYI the Geek Wold GK10 is now up on HifiGo for preordering. No duties/taxes. Came to about $67 CAD all-in for me.

It makes sense when the price is less than a day's worth of work for anyone on this continent. Hell, if it turns out to sound half-way decent it will be an easy Christmas gift for loads of people.

Given how close the IT01X graph looks to the IT00's, do you think they are using the IT00's graphene driver but dual-coated it with Beryllium?
very close indeed :) if there's sound differences between both must be not from the FR itself, but from harmonics or distortion profile... (which unfortunately not plotted)

We are sorry that because the GK10 blue panel has run out. It was not available in time, so now we have made some red and green colors. Customers who have purchased blue panels and have not shipped, we will inform you change the color or postponed.

Green looks excellent.

Any chance of providing a graph?
