November 2016 Fulla 2
Do-All Desktop Headphone Amp, DAC, and Preamp
11/21/2016, Los Angeles, CA. Schiit introduced its next-generation Fulla today, with dramatic upgrades in terms of capability, flexibility, and quality. The new Fulla offers everything a listener needs for a full desktop system, including high power headphone amplification, high quality D/A conversion, analog input, and both fixed and variable DAC output. It also solves the most difficult problem with interfacing to today's computers and tablets, with an optional power-only USB input.
"Fulla 2 lowers the entry point for great desktop sound from $198 to $99," said Jason Stoddard, referencing the cost of their popular Magni 2/Modi 2 stack. "And it offers everything you'd need. Connect to your computer, tablet, or phone via USB, or connect another analog source as well with the front-panel input. Connect the fixed DAC output to a larger system, through a preamp or integrated amp. Connect the variable preamp output to your desktop powered monitors. It's your choice."
Plus, Stoddard commented, getting "this device draws too much power" messages, or USB dropouts from low-powered USB ports, is a thing of the past with Fulla 2. "Just connect your phone charger, or any other 5V source with a micro-USB connector, to the power-only USB input, and Fulla 2 reports to your computer, tablet, or phone that it needs no additional power."
Fulla 2 is more than an upgrade on the original Fulla—it is a complete re-imagining, with significantly increased capabilities. With up to 550mW output into 16 ohms and a full-sized headphone jack, it provides plenty of power for most headphones. A new top-line AKM AK4490 DAC offers improved performance and sound. And high-quality parts from Alps, TI, AMD, together with premium thin-film resistors and film capacitors, make for performance beyond Fulla 2's size and price.
Fulla 2 is available now at Schiit-europe.com for 99 euro.

Remote-Control Preamps and Stereo/Mono Power Amp Help Bring Sanity Back to High-End Pricing
10/7/2016, Denver, Colorado. Schiit previewed the first products in its 2-channel line at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, including the Saga passive/tube hybrid preamp at $349, the Freya balanced tube/buffer/passive preamp at $699, and the Vidar 100W/400W stereo/mono power amplifier at $699. All products were designed as no-compromise high-end components, using design techniques and topologies typically seen on much more expensive gear.
"It's time to decouple the high-end/high-price connection," said Jason Stoddard, co-founder of Schiit Audio. "There's plenty of mega-price gear out there, but we wanted to create great products that almost anyone can afford."
At the same time, Stoddard says, they didn't want to compromise on the performance of the components. Which is why the preamplifiers use extreme high-end design techniques such as relay-switched stepped attenuators (rather than a volume control IC or a potentiometer), and employ highly linear 6SN7-type tubes on 200 or 300V rails in the active stages. It's why the power amp was designed to double its rated power from 8 ohms to 4 ohms, why it uses an exotic current-feedback topology, why it has no capacitors or DC servos in the signal path, and why it is dual mono back to the transformer. The amplifier also employs a 100% linear power supply (no switchers) and is class A/B (not Class D.)
"These new preamps and power amp are the perfect companions to our line of multibit DACs," said Mike Moffat. "Combine them with any of the DACs—from the Modi Multibit to the Yggdrasil—and you have a really amazing system, without the heart-attack price."

Jotunheim is running hard in sales, so dont wait too long before new stock will arrive, it can take a few weeks instead.
27 August 2016
Today, Schiit Audio introduced Jotunheim, the first headphone amp built on a modular architecture to provide unprecedented flexibility and to eliminate obsolescence. Customers can configure Jotunheim as an amplifier alone, or add a hardware-balanced AK4490 DAC module, or a passively equalized, DC-coupled MM phono preamp.
“But, most importantly, nothing in Jotunheim is a compromise,” added Stoddard. “Jotunheim is simply the best-performing, most flexible headamp and preamp we’ve ever made.”
Jotunheim’s performance comes thanks to Schiit’s new inherently-balanced, all-discrete Pivot Point current-feedback topology, which has been under development for over 3 years. Pivot Point provides for both balanced and single-ended inputs and outputs—without the need for phase splitters at the input or summers at the output.
The Schiit Jotunheim is available for purchase at www.schiit-europe.com in this week....

New website for Schiit in Europe - febr. 2014
Schiit got started when two audio Industry veterans decided it was time to shake things up a bit. The two audiophiles are Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta. Together, they have designed dozens of audio and A/V products, from the Andromeda III tot the Cobalt 307 to the DS pre and Angstrom 2000. In the beginning Schiit was sold mainly in the USA but it soon started to sell all over the world, because of the banging good Schiit that you receive for your money. All the fantastic reviews on the biggest hifi websites took all the attention of customers worldwide and Schiit is now one of the most populair brands in this segment.
In line of the Schiit products, we have released a new website for European customers. All products sold on this website have European plugs and is 220-230v.
To all of you, thank you for visiting our website!
