    Tired of the blinding white LEDs on your Schiit gear? You can correct it for $6.99 with a set of Light Dims Silver Edition stickers from Amazon. You get a sheet of various sizes here is before on my Eitr:

    And after applying the Light Dim:

    The silver matches the Schiit finish OK and dims the light by at least 80% very welcome cheap tweak.

    Hint: use tweezers to place the films. I just eyeballed using fingers.

    I do think the Light Dims are more useful. I just covered all three LEDs on my Bimby what a difference. I never understood why Schiit had to use such powerful LEDs in the first place; there must be less bright options.

    I was just kidding - I recall jason mentioning he just bought the brightest LED's he saw, figuring brighter was better. I think the new ones are a little less blinding.

    Will see when my Loki gets here next week. I have a Vali 2 with an LED so bright I had to use two of the films to dim it down to a normal level. That sucker was blindingly bright. Sure you should be able to tell a unit is turned on but really. Has there been a contest to see who can source the brightest LEDs:)

    I use the originals. I found I really had to use three. Before them, if fell asleep downstairs I didn’t need any lighting other than my Schiit gear to see in the room in the not so dark to make it up the stairs.
