Shahzeb, I did google "Schiit criticism" and not only found much less than you claim, but in what I did find I come to the conclusion that your claims about Schiit are overstated, out of date and not presented in their proper context. The discussion and exchange at the following site seems to get at the truth of it: http://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/15wunp/guide_dacs_and_amps/. On that page, do a search for "Schiit" and start with oderi's comment and continue down through Schiit's explanation to ruinevil's "Norse" comment. Btw, the fact that Schiit does or doesn't post measurements to me is of little significance; it's the listening that counts. The Schiit modi and especially the Bitfrost are getting rave reviews from a lot of people on boards and I think some more established reviewers, though the latter are only starting to come out (Andrew, their latest models got into reviewers' hands in the past few months). I have seen a couple of individual reviews that consider the Bitfrost "hard" sonically and not good for longer sessions. I trialed a Micromega MyDac, which according to one reviewer sound very similar to the Bitfrost, and has received almost universal happy reviews, but decided on John Kerry's Ciunas USB dac.
