  1. The EITR is a new product from SCHIIT, a USB to S/PDIF converter. Schiit, never a company to ignore, make some very bold claims ... quote:- "And so, as of now, you can throw away your perfecters and hyperstreamliners and cleaners and recombobulators, and, yes, even that gold-plated yak hair USB cable. Because, as of today, USB is, well, solved.". I would be interested in simplifying the front-end of my system and replacing it with a single, do-it-all box ... and all for $179. Does anyone yet have any impressions of using the EITR and comparison to, say, a Singxer F-1 converter ?
  2. A Guide on how to get the most from your Schiit Eitr I recently began a quest to determine if it was possible to improve sound from the Schiit Eitr. There are three variables I knew to explore: USB Cable from source to the Eitr S/PDIF Cable from the Eitr to the DAC Power Supply (not necessary: LPS already used by Schiit) Where I am coming from: I listen using HD800S phones powered by a Kenzie tube amp and Brooklyn DAC+. I avoid powered USB hubs and connect the Eitr directly from a USB 2.0 port on my Win 7 Pro laptop. USB Cables Do Make A Difference My first experiment involved comparing the popular Blue Jeans USB 2 cable to the AudioQuest Diamond USB Cable, Type A to Type B, 0.75m. AudioQuest Diamond USB Cable Review Source was Tidal HiFi using non MQA tracks I was very familiar with. After listening using the Blue Jeans cable I swapped in the AudioQuest Diamond. The most immediate difference was in musicality: tracks were more enjoyable to listen to. Consider swapping a basic turntable for an LP-12 and the music becomes more "tuneful" as Linn used to say. To be more specific sound stage became wider, deeper and taller using the Diamond cable. There was more air around instruments and voices. Treble was silky smooth and I noticed more impact in bass. I heard more detail and it was easier to listen deep into the tracks. Advice: if you have a very revealing system and can get an AudioQuest Diamond on trial from a dealer try it for yourself. Bits are not always just bits and USB cables do make a difference. I have an interesting high-end S/PDIF cable on the way and will update once I have a listen.
  3. okay I have had an annoying problem using A+ to control an mr. my office system has remote drive-i-mac-audirvana-eitr-modi. My main system has ethernet-microrendu-usb-Gumby, controlled by a+ on the iMac. basically, I have occasions with no sound in the main system even though the microrendu is selected in A+. I confirmed that my computer is seeing the microrendu and the microrendu is seeing the Gumby. After much frustration, I was able to fix things by physically removing the connection between the iMac and the eitr and restarting. For the moment everything is working and I am able to toggle between systems by changing the output selection in A+. But it feels like there is an intermittent compatibility issue between A+ and eitr, where A+ at times will try to send a signal to the eitr, even though I’ve chosen mr as output. any other explanations?
