MOD EDIT, SEE HERE FOR NON SPECULATIVE THREAD: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...ew-discussion-impressions-measurements.13335/ -----OG POST BEGINS HERE----- If you already know, please don't contribute. I've hid this thread for a reason. I wish to speak, but not be heard. They say they are slaughtering a sacred cow, which the only one I can think of is that analog signals should stay in the analog domain. Much of Schiit's intellectual prowess is in the digital field (not to short Jason) and it's been underappreciated as the swap from AKM to ESS was a bear, but not a celebration. Jason is kind of making a real big deal outta this. It doesn't feel like he's discussing his own work. So some kind of device that takes an analog signal into the digital domain in a way that will upset analog purists. Doesn't sound like a big deal? Well we're dealing with Jason trying to hype his partner's product. Maybe he's having a little extra fun with it. I won't hold it against him.
