Ha! Yep, I figured as much. Once you cut through the herd noise and take in other chips/designs (Heck, I'll take a good Cirrus chip over the Sabre too), it's pretty clear. My problem was, I started there with my DAC builds. It was a case of not knowing what I didn't know. On the same topic; I think it was stated earlier that the sheer cost/effort needed to have a good sounding Sabre (9018) DAC is staggering. Not to mention my beast that dissipates some ~70W.... for a DAC. Sigh.

Lessons learned. Final comment; none of this 'being polite' and leaving me to my stupidity. Friends don't let friends...

So, what is consensus on Vali with IEMs? Not BA, but with dynamic driver like IE800? Is it still gonna be too sensitive for that?

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
