    Ohhh you already know what you're gonna do next my man.

    But yes, some old stuff can give the latest and greatest a run. And it's heck a lot of fun hunting down, rebuilding, and comparing obsolete stuff. Makes you appreciate the substance over form.

    It's sort of a mini gap in their DAC lineup. Been noticing many DACs providing a headphone out as a value added feature. Metrum, Chord, RME, Yulong, Cambridge, etc. Miniaturize that Lyr 3 output stage and slap it in there for something handy that will work with moderately efficient headphones, and we'd have another Pénis d'Or winner.

    Damn-uneventful for a while; a long fuckin' while. Boring, just working on less exotic but required digital audio engineering to stay ahead and competitve. Yawn. I had a couple of proto PCBs hangin' around which I hooked together out of convenience earlier today..............................

    Words fail. Since I started doing digital audio 35 years ago, there have been one or two digital audio engineering eargasms. Today, I had a full-on expert digital audio blowjob. I am stunned and have just taken a break from several hours of listening.

    Just now started a combo pcb.

    It is going to take me quite a bit of time to figure out how/where to implement this - stay tuned.

    Jokes aside, great news :)

    I believe that the art of FUD was perfected by IBM. This is the marketing technique of persuading people not to buy anything from competitors because you are about to disclose and release the thing that beats all the rest hands down.

    Schiit is the only company I know of that seems to use FUD against itself! And yet the old stuff keeps on selling anyway.

    Heyho, God Schiit moves in mysterious ways! And they work for them :D

    Very happy to read the Sol project is still progressing as most of the other items seem cool but not on my radar.

    Mechanical stuff... QA and support nightmares. Takes some big balls to make that transition.

    Happy news they're progressing, I'm always into reading what these two are up to. This is very enjoyable.

    Want to hear the superf'incomboburrito filter wig out distortion...? Same type is baked into this track– fades in at 1:03 to 1:06+ on, in the highs. Kept rebooting moby, or thought i2s was screwed up. Then tried on a ds dac, and youtube & it was the same! LOL it tricked me.

    *thought it was interesting, very similar sound, non issue other than that

    A personal thanks @baldr and Jason. Got my Yggdrasil back with A2 board a few days ago, which sounded like crap out of the cold box, but three days later... sitting here listening to Chris Botti, and Billy Kilson's drum solo. Feck, never heard horns or cymbals sound so like they do live. You guys are doing something right!

    LOL. Schiit isn't having a redux of the response for the Yggy analog 2 board release on Head fi. Sad that enough dumbasses can ruin it for the rest of us.

    Looks like the Sol is on its way to being released. Very nice.

    Also Jason said that they wouldn't announce upgrades until a year of installed boards has passed instead of 3 months like the Yggdrasil
