Wyrd to the rescue: BF2 Unison could not lock onto iPhoneXR (iOS15) until I put Wyrd in between. Any recommendations for very short USB A/B? Nov 22, 2021

        @Cspirou I just ordered a 1ft cable for 18.80 (including shipping, gold plated connectors, techflex). For a cable that's so short and going to be stationary, seems like it's going to be fine. From the Wyrd to the phone, I'm using a Belkin Pro Series F3U133

        I actually did this because I disliked the sound of the plastic knob rubbing against the aluminum. The result was much better than expected.

        I've worked for startups twice (employee #18 and #5), and they were both rewarding in different ways. Not really monetarily, but I really liked them.

        It's very different and enjoyable when you're creating something new from just an idea.

        Good luck!

      Is there a way to stop the Vali2 'click' on warmup? Happy to mod my Vali2 if need be. Does it damage IEMs? It sounds pretty loud to me.

        The click is from the mute relay, which closes upon warm-up. I agree that it's annoyingly loud. I've always done as @dubharmonic suggests and plugged in headphones/iems after the relay has closed. Been doing this for years with no ill-effects.

        @k4rstar you were right. I tried out a few things and Yggdrasil --Balanced--> Transformers --SE--> FreyaS sounds best. I can now alternate between passive for violin/single instruments and Nexus (usually at 1) for most other music. Thanks for the advice!

      Did anyone do an Asgard 2 vs 3 comparison? I couldn't find it. I have the 2 and wondering if it's worth going to 3?
      1. crenca

        I don't recall seeing a direct comparison either. I think you will have to triangulate based on your first hand experience with 2 and the impressions of the 3. I sold a BW2 (to fund a Starlett) and the Asgard 3 is serving in its place now

        Would never have realised it is braille, rather than a random tactile symbol. Thank you for the enlightenment!
