No, not in this forum.  But selling stuff.

I know almost nothing about these guys.  But, check out their web page.  The FAQs are worth the visit.

That is not how I would pronounce it. Where is Phred when you really need him?

Can you recommend a D/A converter?
No.

No, really, can you recommend a D/A converter, my budget is . . .?
Not to be dicks or anything, but no. We donít endorse products from other manufacturers. Itís not that they suck, but we donít make them, so we donít really know how theyíll perform over time.

I deny having wrote this. I bet CH does, as well. I know, sounds like we did.

OK, Charlie.............I won't!

Did you read the FAQs specifically about the products?  Or the manuals?

I *know* you guys are somehow involved.  You and that Mike Moffat guy.

BTW, if you Google Schiit Asgard, you get the usual press releases.  But right there on page 2 is a Google hit for one of the Schiit guy's wife's blog.  (Say that last part fast three times...)

In the spirit of the throngs who search Google for schematics of certain preamplifiers and that sort of thing, I had to look.  Within she describes the production line for Schiit.

I hope they are successful.  Seriously.  I may buy one, well, just because.  Besides, I hear headphones are the way and Krell stopped making headphone amplifiers years ago.

"I'm a moron, and this is my wife.
She is frosting a cake, with a paper knife.
All what we got here is American made.
It's a little bit cheesy, but it's nicely displayed.
Well, we don't get excited when it crumbles or breaks.
We just pick up the phone, and call some flakes.
They'll rush on over, and wreck it some more.
And we are so dumb, they're lining up at our door!

Well, my toilet went crazy yesterday afternoon.
The plumber he says 'Never flush a tampoon'.
This great information cost me half a week's pay.
And the toilet blew up later on the next day!"

Flakes!

(I think the part of a tampoon getting stuck and 'sploding actually happened to Phred!)

Did people in Asgard ever shoot guinea pigs out of cannons? Inquiring minds want to know.
