I'll hop onto this two year old thread!I was at Axpona 2019 and thought the Schiit room didn't compare well either. I have a Loki in my system, and it did have to go back for service (the infamous humm), but it sounds great now. Service was excellent after 18 months. Their other gear reviews well too, but I wouldn't buy it after hearing it at Axpona. I was there with my wife, and she agreed - sounded flat, 2D. Not full like other rooms.
I think they need to benchmark the other rooms and find a better combination of gear. Maybe try some different speakers? Can't remember what they ran. There was plenty of good sounding rooms, and everyone pretty much starts out with the same room.
The O.P. doesn't know what he's hearing and he doesn't know what he's talking about. Whatever his reason is for claiming the schiit vidar failed the comparison it wasn't because the schiit amp wasn't as good.There are ten other more plausible reasons why the esoteric room "sounded better" (if it, in fact, did and the O.P. isn't simply making all of this up, which I suspect he is).
