      Anyone have half a dozen USB decrapifiers to chain together for a thread you can start on September 1? When August ends, noise begins.

      Bought Orquesta Nova album. Excellent, except half the songs have dropouts. HDTracks refunded me, but I actually want the full album.

      MHDT Orchid -> Schiit Jotunheim has me questioning if I need a tube amp for my 650 with this combo.

      Modi Multibit is very capable at the price point. Really pleasant: Eitr -> Mimby -> Vali 2 -> HD650 (dark, but that's what I like)

      When @baldr goes on a rant, does @schiit ever say, "Oh, Comoffat?" Guess he'd have to be British to say that.

        I fear that may be said in far more mindbleach-intensive scenarios (sorry, Mike!)

      Considering your recent wall wart SNAFU, ever consider changing your handle? Or do you use it because it really is "situation normal"?

      Neko Audio D100 Mk2 in house for temporary trade. Brief thought: Nowhere near the worst DS DAC I've heard.

      Grabbed a Vali 2 as cheap work amp so I can keep a tube and solid state amp at home. So much better than the original Vali. Holy Schiit.

      Jotunheim in the house. Vali 2 as well. Jotun from MHDT Orchid = Impressive. Very complementary signatures. Upper mid harshness not there.

        Jot can't handle strain from dac side. Probably why there is some discrepancy bw impressions. SFD-1 was fine with HD800M even, Yggy not so much.

      Something like a month back into hi-fi and I've already bought 3 Schiit Eitrs, 2 MHDT DACs, a Metrum Amethyst, and several tubes. WTF

        Do you still have your Koss PortaPro? Take it, plug it in your phone or DAP and play your favourite song. Then listen and do nothing...

      Howdy, I have been told you are a tube guru in the art of voicing small 9-pin tubes. Can you guide me in the ways of the Vali 2?

        Unfortunately I'm not a Vali 2 expert. Tubes are different in different amps.

        Okay, I might go for that special tube.

      Hey I saw in a post you tried out the Philips SHP9500, I want to try it out as a beater headphone, was wondering your thoughts on it. I also see you use Equalizer APO + Peace, from reviews it seems like the Philips is bright up top and needs some more low end, have you EQed it with Equalizer, and if so could you share your settings? Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

      Just when I thought I had settled on my setup, I got a demo unit of the Holo Spring Kitsune Tuned Edition. Now I bought one.

      @Luckbad, What headphones are you rocking Nowadays? Also what did you use with the Holo DAC?
      1. Luckbad
        Luckbad
        Tested the Holo with the Sennheiser HD650. It's my main headphone at home. At work, I use the JVC HA-DX2000 and Future Sonics Spectrum G10.

        Those DX2000's are wonderful headphones. I preferred them to the THX00.

      Trying a SingXer SU-1 in lieu of a Gustard U12 up front of Gumby/Mojo2. A little glare on first blush, I'm hoping after a burn in, things refine a bit. But great detail, fresh, forward sound. Tim Conner was a champ and honored your basshead discount. Thanks.

        U12 is a bit soft and blurry sounding in a not particularly accurate way, so it would be natural to hear what you're hearing on a better converter.

      Hoping people back the Taction Kannon Kickstarter! They're even offering refunds if you try them and don't like them!

        I'd be more excited by a tachyon cannon, how cool would that be? I'm not even sure what we could do with that, but I'm sure it'd be awesome!

      Mutec MC-3+ Smart Clock USB... Friggin' wow. This convinced me that USB -> S/P-DIF converters are legit.

        Anyone else looking for a Mutec deal, hit up this page. It's their US distributor and they list retailers: http://www.sonicus.net/USdealers.html

        Markertek is probably the most well-known retailer in the States, or maybe Vintage King Audio.
