Everyone's interested Jason! Roughly what approximate time? (I got Sc**t to do!) Thanks.

I'd expect early morning Pacific time--probably 7-8AM.

We'll have a reasonable number on the shelves by that time, probably about 100 of them or so, but we'll probably still be quoting "5-7 days" for shipping, so the board house can catch up. They're supposed to do 200 per day after the first shipment today, but they sometimes skip a day or two. The next run is already cued up, but I wouldn't be surprised if you saw some "out of stock" days in December.

I'm rolling...I need to put that one up on the wall at Schiit...now that we have walls you can hammer on and not (a) expect it to crumble to the floor, or (b) wake a rabid raccoon that will come shooting out of an air vent and gnaw your foot off.

(We didn't call the old shop the "schiithole" for nothing.)

From humble beginnings comes Schiit that does not stink. 
Please dress Mike Moffatt in a BatMan costume next October with Magni, Modi, Loki, and Vali on his utility belt..

So... that rabid racoon was the unofficial Schiit mascot?

DACs are like the conflict in the middle east. Most opinions on them are wildly divergent, the religious have a very different view point than the logicians. In the end though, all anyone wants is some resolution. ~Tari

Thanks for the details Jason-looking forward to hearing the Vali. Are we still shooting for a December release on the Rag as well? I plan on getting that too. Thanks.

Do you think the bifrost is a better sounding dac then the BM? I have also been eyeing the matrix sabre dac, since I have read that it should play nicely with the HD800.

Yup. The Benchmark is one of my least favorite DACs. It's fine as a studio DAC which is what it's intended to be. But musical? No.

They've sounded fantastic, really - but I find I simply prefer the more organic sound of the AK chips.

Yup. The AD1955 is the same way. You won't make any headlines by using four or eight (or sixteen) AD1955s, but you'll end up with a much better sounding DAC than anything using a 9018.

Hello. I the fidelio x1 headphones. I'm thinking to buy magni and modi, but with the launch of vali, i'm not sure to buy magni.

I read that fidellios have a perfect match with lyr, but it is too expensive to me. Maybe vali is near to lyr than magni in therms of quality?

Do you think that vali will sound much better with fidelios than magni? Do you recommend me wait to vali launchment?

Thank you very much and sorry for my english.
