    Well I don't believe it... the two owners of Schiit Audio are are Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta. So did you mean that Jason's wife came up with the company name?

    How did Schitt Audio come about and can you talk about the name as well the general Schiit attitude?
    It was named by my partner's wife, as a joke. There was endless debate over what to name it. When there was no solution to the naming dilemma, we decided to name and spell it Schiit.

    Thanks for the clarification - the point of my post #11 above was that there is no "Mike Stoddard", so it was Jason Stoddard's wife that came up with the company name.

    Just tell your wife that it stands for "Ship High In Transit" which is the true origin of the word. Back in the day of the wooden sailing ships. The ships would leak water in the storage compartments. So goods that could be damaged were labeled ship high in transit so that they would not get wet.

    Yes, sorry. Too many players, can't keep the names straight.
