This schiit is the bomb.  Actually I have yet to receive it.  There are one million ways to get hi fi audio and the price you have to pay can increase exponentially as you go from the lower to the higher end of the spectrum.  For instance you can spend more than $2,000 in just a needle cartridge for your
Turn table.  You could also buy a turn table for like 20,000 or more.  And spend another fortune in amps, decoders, speakers etc...  Or you can go cheap and get a really good audio experience by using moderate quality components.  Now, Once in a while you get a product that gives you a taste of what only the rich can afford and it is awesome.  The schiit is resported to be amongst these.  I hope that is the case

Hobbies are all about mojo.  Cost (and often science) doesn't matter... it's all about what makes somebody happy.   8)

There is the it sounds good, but then, There is another level of sound good.  Where you can actually hear the vibration of the guitar body, the taking a breath to play a sax, the picking of the strings, there is a feeling of actually being there in the same room as the musicians.  It is like a magic trick when you close your eyes and you feel like Mile Davis is doing a personal concert for you.  That is what I am aiming for.

Schiit Audio makes some good Schiit! :rimshot

I had upgraded my Schiit for some other Schiit,(Better Schiit).

.......Seriously, I have been using my Schiit Audio Asgard 2 Amp and the new Bifrost Mulitbit DAC with my AKG Q701 and a set of Presonus eris e5 studio monitors. listening to HD Flac files, the detail is amazing. like you posted, I could spend a lot more, but I am pretty content(for now).

I think you need another equally expensive DAC to make it a proper setup.

Did you get the one with the built in DAC? It is the FULLA model. Then you need the camera kit for the iphone.
If you have just an amp, use the appropriate cable to connect the 1/8" out put of the iphone to the input of the amp.
Either way your Iphone should really sound like schiit!
