    Re the gadget. Do you have audio examples of what this thing can do? Im having a hard time figuring out what kind of result I would get with it.

    Just got done listening to the Emperor Concerto with Garrick Ohlssohn at the symphony. I can’t believe the orchestra was playing in 24 bits. I paid for 32 bits and I want them!!

    He encored the allegretto from Beethoven's piano sonata 28.

    Fun program! Mixing piano with orchestra can be tricky and I often struggle to appreciate the combo because of the difference in tuning (i.e. just intonation vs true intonation) but it can also be pretty great. Take into consideration the program and it had every chance of being a lovely evening. I hope they did well for you!

    @Ableza 's futile efforts remind me of my own OCD ticks on trying to tell people that "baud" is not "bits per second", an internet is a network of networks, "The Internet" has come to mean the one we use today, and that their broadband is probably baseband unless they get it from the cable company.

    Doctor Frankenfurter pioneered that... "It really drives them insane". (Source: Rocky Horror Picture Show).

    With few exceptions Mike tries to make this thread censorship free. The Mods only seem to get involved if someone breaks the Head-fi's written TOS as well as a couple unwritten ones.

    That is why his is one of my favorite threads.

    Dreamt that Schiit made a streamer...then I woke up and lol'd. Also dreamt about a new Bifrosty gadget prototype. Right now the only question is whether it will be here in time for me to get one before the summer european tour (a bit shorter than last year's, alas).

    Hung up one of the Wagner paintings, and I must say, for someone as bad at home repair/improvement jobs as me, the two screws (with the two anchors!) were about as much as I could think of doing in an afternoon. However I do like the look of it...even if it might not be precisely level.

    It's the curse of being an Engineer: some things require precision and using the correct terminology. I like to think I'm not as pedantic as most, but it does pick my nits when it's a completely misapplied term.

    When I was younger I preferred bawd to baud, by the way. :)

    It looks like atomicbob just dropped a nuke on @amirm's Bifrost measurements.

    Amir - Won't post testing methodology or testing conditions. Won't specify the testing gear used. Won't specify audio path used. Obfuscates facts while playing the diplomat. Clearly has enough experience to know how to manipulate results. Is probably a MOT and competitor to Schiit. In my opinion, he has an agenda and a motive to smear Schiit's reputation, one that is probably financial or business related.

    +1. The @atomicbob tutorial is definitely a worthwhile read.

    I use a 3 meter Straight Wire USB from my computer to a Wyrd and then a Pyst USB from the Wyrd to the Bifrost. Total of 12' of USB cable with only one Wyrd. Bet you could get away with another 3 to 6 ft with only one Wyrd. I do have 2 Wyrds but I have never chained them together.

    If you try it let me know how it goes...

    I finally had to stop *facepalm* -ing at the misapplication of "broadband." "Resistance is futile," indeed.

    Where's the atomic bob takedown?

    In other news, just got back from the Allentown Symphony's Scheharazade and a work called Palace of Nine Perfections. Interesting program. Joyce Yang was a great pianist but I could not see her hands from my seat, which made it less interesting to me. She really looked like she was having fun.

    The Scheharazade was wonderful, Miller Hall is a fine venue.
