  1. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    I like them better than the new prod 6sn7 tungsols / EH gold pins. Only issue is that you need adaptors for these tubes and they are tall tubes.

    Microphonic tube sounds differ. Some hum, some have weird noises that make you think wtf.. some are loud, some are just low level noise that is almost inaudible unless you put your ear against the speaker. But seriously though, why dont you just buy a matched quad pair of tungsols or EH gold pins to see that makes a difference? I still think that based on what you have described, you have dodgy tubes. Much cheaper than paying for the cost of shipping the unit to/from to the USA - i'm assuming that warranty does not cover shipping back to Schiit Audio HQ. A2A are a good bunch. THats whom I got mine off too. The impressions of LISST tubes from HeadFi isnt that great. You're just better off running it through the JFET stage.

    Better to find out. If theres no issues then just get a quad set of matched triodes. If this noise really bothers you then dont use the tube stage, pity if that should be the case.

    Im using 6f8g tubes on mine and i can hear small amounts of white noise on the tube stage. Unfortunately thats something we have to live with when using tubes. But whst what i can gather it sounds like you have microphonic tubes. And the problem with tubes are that they can become microphonic after use. Id suggest that you borrow some 6sn7 tubes to test this again. If there was something dodgy with the output stages, this would be heard across all 3 outputs. But since youve contacted Schiit to RMA it back, best to get them to see whats wrong with it. Luckily the freya comes with a 5year warranty.

  6. Subwoofer cables

    Try some blue jeans LC-1 with Taversoe connectors. Good sub cable

    So true. I'll buy your MK2's at the upgrade price and i'll have a high end HT setup But I suspect the finance minister will cut my line of credit first before that happens.

    I need to have a chat to your missus Cazz. She's clearly very supportive of your hobby!
  9. To sub or not to sub

    Did you expect any less? But in all seriousness, the poor Op is now more confused with the wealth of options..

    Cazz. Great to finally see where it all sits in. Need to pull some green's out for that MK2 upgrade on mine. THat empty shelf is begging for a TT rig. Would love to see the two subs you had next to the speakers in an old pic (ie before/after) pics!
  11. The bridge only works with the sparky board, hence why it is bundled together. The sparky board is a better designed board over the Pi3.
  12. AI: yes but no, but....

    All i can think of is Skynet.
  13. Ditto. I was happy to pay for MoOde v3.xx and will continue to do so. If MoOde continues on this path, i'll just swap back to Volumio if needed, but i'd prefer not too.
