  1. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    I emailed Lucas Miles last week and they said they didnt match quads, only pairs.
  2. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    I'm also keen to try some 6f8g [email protected] recommends.
  3. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    I got a matched quad from viva tubes on eBay. Cost was about $130 aud delivered. Terrific tubes.
  4. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    Yes it would be a pity to miss out on the tube stage.
  5. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    It is quite possible that all 4 tubes are noisy. What is odd though that the noise is always in the right channel even when you swap tubes around.
  6. Schiit New Preamp Freya

    I've tried several different tubes and combinations in my Freya and all have a low level white noise that is not present in the jfet mode. This noise does not increase with the volume knob. I use it in a nearfield desktop setup and I only really notice it when the music stops. I did get a intermittent crackling on some tubes but definitely not all.

    I'm looking to buy 4 of the new tung sols. How important is quad matching vs 2 matched pairs?
  8. Big Thanks

    Welcome mate. You're right, there are a lot of very helpful people here.
  9. What ever happened to the ozone hole? You never hear about it anymore.
  10. I reckon a second hand sub $100 dac with a printer cable USB would be better than the current setup.
  11. Yep me too. Great Aussie series.
  12. I doubt yours will be the last . Collectively, we've purchased quite a few
  13. NEW: Schiit Stereo/Mono Amp - Vidar

    Yes. Chris has said he is impressed with the second pair and that a full review would be up by the end of the month.
  14. I use this from ikea. its good because its widely spaced tines allow me to place the whole spindle including spacers in the rack. I can then just slide the spindle out.

    @Cardiiiii not sure if you've seen the SBAF thread. http://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/schiit-vidar-impression-thread-updated-with-review-check-first-post.4730/ direct link to Marvey's review here: http://www.audiophool.org/blog/index.php/2017/08/30/schiit-vidar-power-amplifier/ Mr Darko has one so we will see something on that front soon.
