Michael W posted a topic in Buy & Sell Audio and Computer ComponentsPurchased new directly from Schiit on Feb. 26 (total $266 w/ shipping). Selling as I intended to use with a pair of IEMs, but I've only done so twice since it arrived. Otherwise, I do all my listening via a pair of nearfield monitors connected to a Modi DAC. Thus, I'm hoping to switch out for a Bifrost DAC. Selling for $200 + $15 shipping via USPS Priority mail. US only. Includes user guide.
For those of you who LIKE the look of the otherwise all-black Schiit Asgard 2 headphone amplifier WITH the ridiculous silver volume knob, you can safely ignore this thread :). For those of you who, like me, think the silver knob looks terrible, read on. I contacted Schiit support (with tongue-in-cheek) asking if they could send me a black knob to replace the one "erroneously" shipped with my amp. They replied that "they had no black knobs" (which is the response I expected). I then set out on a quest to fix the problem myself. I found a source in Asia that was able to supply me a solid, cast aluminum black knob for about $10 all-in. This knob is the exact same diameter, but a little thicker than the knob supplied by Schiit. It is also slightly glossier than the finish of the amp. I still like it better than the silver knob, though. I have attached a photo of the result. All comments welcome. If you are interested in pursuing this yourself, let me know via PM. Happy listening!
