How much would tube rectification contribute to the sound?
With the WA7TP power supply, the increase in soundstage depth was noticeable over the SS power supply with the WA7. It was very much worth the upgrade.
Its not super crazy, but something they have not done before.
Except... aren't tube power supplies DC? All the small chassis Schiit gear takes AC input.
A sealed device that promises to clean up your power signal, but its actually just input -> output.
Schiit reveals internal design months later, thus pissing off a lot of "audio purists"
Ok Jason you’ve hinted enough already. Where can I preorder my new Schiit-lifters?
Omg I can only get so erect..
Will be there. Are you bringing your custom 45 amp? Dying to hear it!
Pfft, squatty-potty already beat them to that!

Of all things, I did not expect a
HAHAHAHAHA. I basically told you guys what it was (without directly telling you) here: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/schiit-syn-speculation.13317/#post-405673
No one picked up on it. LOLOLOLOL.
Yep, I said it post 31
"Changing the signal"
I don't see a market for this device. Well, maybe the crossfeed-ish for headphones. Competes with the Soul for that?
Ordered! Also like the tease of the finished URD in the promo pictures on the website, that is gonna be very sweet and I can't wait for it.
Ghetto surround sound setup. An analog surround processor that works with Netflix, Apple, HBO, Paramount etc. and doesn't cost thousands of dollars. The surround info is actually encoded in the stereo already. Are the independent channels as "discrete" as the double D digital processors? I would surmise not. There is probably more bleed and there is definitely no Atmos. But it actually works correctly. It's definitely not a fake surround or constant reverb effect. The RL and RR channels only make sound when they are supposed to. For $400 and some JBL or Monoprice self powered monitors, one can get a very good theater experience that is arguably better than the Bose packages at Best Buy.
I was actually wondering if Schiit would ever do a crossfeed box. This is really cool
Is the meetup going to have a Dolby processor to A/B?
Surround sound? Sigh.
And only really two inputs and no HDMI, which Schiit won't do. This seems a product aimed at gamers maybe. What? Just because it can decode Dolby and it has a crossfeed circuit. And of course no bass management. At least they gave it a remote.
Do we also know what surround sound decoders it has on board: AC-3, Pro-Logic II, DTS, DTS-Neo:6, DTS Neo 2.5, Dolby Atmos, Dolby True HD, Dolby Digital Plus.
I am only assuming it can decode PCM and AC-3, but please correct me if I am wrong.
That was my takeaway, PCM basically.
I’m kind of confused as to who this is for. In order to actually get surround sound out of this, you’ll still need a multi-channel amp, right? How many companies make multi-channel power amps with no built in digital processing? Emotiva is the only one I can think of.
I’m sure it sounds good, I’m just not seeing many applications for this where there isn’t already something in the system that can decode all the surround standards. That’s just me.
Just stereo. It mixes up center and surround channels from a stereo signal and filters+boost for LFE.
If it can do a decent stereo+sub thing, then I'm impressed.
For $400 a person can get a pretty decent AVR that will actually decode the two major formats. This is a pretty niche device that will likely only appeal to hard core audio enthusiasts that want to play with a toy.
The talk on the product page about standards changing is perplexing. Dolby and DTS have been around for years and will be for years to come.
