    As my system falls to pieces because of irresponsibility, rent, and other fun things, I've decided to simplify the part where my computer sends stuff to the DAC. As I currently don't have a DAC other than a Dragonfly, it seems the right time to do it.

    At some point I said this:
    I did realize that if you really wanted to upgrade the power supply of the Eitr or other Schiit products, you could put a bigger, nicer transformer of appropriate voltage in a box. This fella is $20, and then you can stick it in an aluminum foil ball with an AC plug hanging out one end and a barrel connector out the other and possibly not hear any improvement at all.​
    And then I followed up on that and made a box slightly better than a foil ball and it has worked very nicely with the Eitr. As the Wyrd requires the same input voltage, you could also use it for the Wyrd. The AC cable uses a locking connector on the transformer side and has an AC switch on the back.

    Schiit Eitr - $120 shipped CONUS or $140 with the custom transformer + standard wall-wart. If you throw in $5 for fees I'll throw in a low-capacitance SPDIF RCA cable at least equal to Blue Jeans in quality. I have the original Eitr box if that turns you on. Included an awkward picture using my picture-taking phone as a source to show that the power works.

    Schiit Wyrd - $50 shipped CONUS, $70 with custom transformer and its normal wall-wart. Never used it with the custom thing but it'll work. I don't think I have the original Wyrd box but there's a small chance it's in this one place. If the box is important to you, I can check before money exchanges digital hands.

    If you just want the 6V thing for your own decrapifier, $30 shipped CONUS will do it. That's still a bit less than parts cost, without consideration of shipping.

    If for some reason you want everything, let's say $180 shipped CONUS. That is cheaper than just a new Eitr.

    Finally, if you feel like trading, I'd swap everything for a CTH.

    There hasn't been a test situation where I can say that it solves or improves dropouts - it could or could not. Get your 220 Schiit wall-wart before you leave and hope you don't get dropouts wherever you're going.
