Virtual Schiitr Meet: Texmageddon and Afterwards, Supply Chains, and Lokis Oh My!
It's that time again! Join us at 4PM PST on Wednesday, March 10 to hear me talking about Texas, backorders, supply chain, and the Lokis! It's been a heck of a ride, but we now have an official start-up day for Corpus Christi production, we have others joining us in town, and we are in the middle of making things better in backorder-land. We hope. We'll see. Enough caveats? Maybe.
From the livecast, the production of smaller Schiit will be performed in Texas with the more complex Schiit in California. Hint of a Loki Max with additional bands; therefore, larger footprint is being toyed with with a possible summer or end of the year hints... but only if they can get their Schiit together. Transport heading to beta... more to come.
100% agreed... they have a wide selection of quality gear that fit into various budgets. I started with a modest headphone setup with a Schiit Vali and Modi and eventually upgraded to a Lyr 3 with MultiBit card. When I was looking for a 2 channel setup in a dedicated room, I naturally turned to them and the rest is history... zero regrets.
Love my Modi Multibit, want to stick it in my main system and compare it to the DAC in my XMC-2 when time permits.
Bitfrost 2 is still showing unavailable at the Amazon Store. Question, is the Schiit Modi 3+ D/A Converter a step up from the unboard DAC in the Bluesound Node 2i? I find the Node 2i's DAC rather harsh. Looks like the Modi won't allow 2.1 channels? If so I might have to wait for the Bitfrost to stock.

To my ears, the Modi Multibit was superior, in every way, over the Node 2i's DAC. You'll probably need a way to crossover the sub to get a true 2.1 way setup. I believe the Freya XLR and SE outputs are always on, so you could send one of those outputs to the sub and the other to the amp for the main speakers. Not 100% ideal, but better than using speaker outputs to the sub and then from the sub to the mains.
