Although they don't do deals, it would be to their advantage to have fixed prices for combination purchases. If I wanted to purchase a DAC and and AMP, Schiit has priced themselves out of my range, and I would be looking elsewhere. But if they were to offer fixed combination prices, they would find that folks like me would give them another look, and many who were only going to purchase one item might decide to go for 2. Pizza outfits do this on a "Fixed" basis and it works. If someone is buying a pizza and one will serve the fam, but they see that they can get the second pizza for 1/2 off, they buy what they do not need or want. Although it appears that the pizza outfit is taking a beating; the reality is that the gain spread out over two pizza's exceeds the gain from one at full price. You just need to be customer care sensitive and have the pricing know-how; and Schiit would be the winner and so would the customer. There would be no deals or sales, but there would be increased sales and savings. Buy a better business book, Schiitt!
Is this a joke? Schiit offers some of the best performance for the price on the market, and some of the best entry level offerings. If $200 is too high for an excellently performing entry level dac and amp, then maybe you shouldn't be looking at audiophile products.
i'd agree in that by comparison, Schiit offers some of the highest regarded audio equipment at affordable prices. Tough to beat these guys at the performance vs. price point.
I think it would only make sense for them to do a drop if say they needed to clear a decent volume of stock, as one product moves onto the next iteration/generation of release. But many of their gear is modular for upgrades, so this scenario also isn't likely.
If price is an issue, maybe go look at the o2 combo.
