Unison USB™ Upgrades Now Available for All Schiit Upgradable DACs

January 28, 2020, Valencia, CA. Schiit Audio announced the immediate availability of its Unison USB™ input for all of its upgradable DACs (Bifrost, Gungnir, and Yggdrasil.) Unison USB is Schiit's unique, proprietary USB input that is the result of 2 person-years of development. Running on a general-purpose Microchip microprocessor (rather than a typical XMOS or C-Media solution), Unison USB provides superior UAC2 performance at very low current draw from the host, as well as complete electromagnetic and electrostatic isolation.

"Unison USB is designed to do a single thing, and to do it better than anything else: deliver exceptional PCM audio performance," said Mike Moffat, Schiit's Co-Founder and head of digital development. "As a result, Unison USB is now our preferred input over SPDIF. It's not 'just as good,' or 'close.' It's really better than SPDIF. And yes, that's me saying this, not an alien pod person."

Unison USB debuted in Schiit's all-new Bifrost 2 DAC last year. Now, Schiit is bringing Unison USB to all of its upgradable DACs: Bifrost, Gungnir, and Yggdrasil.

All models of these DACs, regardless of age can be upgraded to Unison USB. Gungnir requires a motherboard firmware re-flash, which means it needs to come back to Schiit for the upgrade. Bifrost and Yggdrasil can be upgraded by any competent technician, or can be sent back to the factory, at the owner's choice. If a customer chooses to have Schiit do the upgrade, they can continue to enjoy their DAC until it is ready to be upgraded, thanks to Schiit's upgrade queuing system.

All new Gungnir and Yggdrasil models will now include the Unison USB input standard. 

The Unison USB upgrade is soon available for purchase today at

Redefining the Entry Level Headphone Amp—Twice
November 29, 2019, Valencia, CA. Today, Schiit Audio announced the availability of two new entry level headphone amps: Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy. Magni 3+ is the highest-performing discrete current feedback entry level amp from Schiit, ever, while Magni Heresy uses an all op-amp topology to push measured performance even higher. Both deliver output power 200% higher than other entry-level headphone amps. Both amps are designed and built in California, feature all-metal construction, and are available immediately at for $99.
“Magni 3+ is a serious miniaturized speaker amp for headphones,” said Jason Stoddard, Schiit’s Co-Founder. “It further refines Magni 3 with a driver stage and Vbe multiplier for significantly better performance, with THD+N under load of 10-15dB lower than previous Magnis. At the same time, we wanted to see how far we could push measured performance with modern op-amps, so Magni Heresy betters the performance of Magni 3 by another 6-8dB.”
At the same time, both Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy deliver these results while delivering class-leading power output and extremely low noise floors. Magni and Magni Heresy are both rated at 2.4W RMS into 32 ohms, both channels driven, at less than 1% THD, which is 2X higher than typical competing entry-level headphone amplifiers, and higher than any Magni delivered to date. Both have noise floors that are inaudible when used with extremely sensitive IEMs. This unique combination of power and low noise means that Magni 3+ or Magni Heresy are suited for virtually every headphone.
“These are not entry-level amps,” added Jason. “They’re really all the amp you’ll ever need, whether you’re using inefficient planar magnetic headphones or super-high-efficiency in-ear monitors.”
Magni Heresy got its name because it is a radical departure from Schiit’s all-discrete-whenever-possible design dogma. Schiit was so pleased with the overall result that they decided to introduce both Magnis in what they call a “Thunderdome.”
Thunderdome, introduced several months ago with new preamp designs, allows allows Schiit to bring its customers new, cool things more often, or offer one-off special runs—but without making prospects join a group to get the price down, or wait for months for delivery. The products that sell the best continue in the line.
“This allows us to have some fun doing variations that nobody may ever have seen,” Jason said. “Like Magni Heresy. Now, we can see if our customers want a discrete headphone amp with excellent performance, or an op-amp headphone amp with even better measured performance. It’s literally up to them.”
To facilitate early comparisons of the two headphone amps, Schiit is offering a special “buy both, return one” promotion to the first 250 takers. With this, a customer can order both amps, keep both for an extended time (30 days), and return one with no restock fee.
Like all of Schiit’s products, both Magni 3+ and Magni Heresy are designed and built in California, with Schiit’s key production partners being located only minutes away from the Schiit facility in Valencia, CA—chassis are done in Valencia and PCBs in Simi Valley. The vast majority of production cost for either product goes to US companies, producing in the USA.

SCHIIT INTRODUCES LYR 3 (availability expected Europe in may)

The First-Ever Modular Hybrid Headamp/Preamp 
March 20, 2018, Valencia, CA. Today, Schiit Audio announced the introduction of its third-generation Lyr headphone amp/preamp. Using Schiit’s new Coherence™ hybrid single-tube/solid state architecture, new Continuity™ constant-transconductance output stage, the same modular design as Jotunheim, Lyr 3 is a significant advance in technology, versatility, and convenience. Lyr 3 is available now at, starting at $499.
“This is a clean-sheet design,” said Jason Stoddard, Schiit’s Co-Founder. “Modularity means you can use the same cards as Jotunheim to create a single-box amp/DAC or amp/phono that’s very desktop friendly. But it’s a whole lot more than that. We developed a new tube/bipolar hybrid topology that we’re calling Coherence™, for the seamless way the tube and transistor work together. We also developed a constant-transconductance output stage, which we’re calling Continuity™, to address the most fundamental issue with a Class AB amplifier—and bring it closer to Class A performance.”
In addition to being a technology showcase, Lyr 3 is a versatile, powerful, and convenient solution for desktop listening via headphones and powered monitors.
  • Versatile: Lyr 3 can be configured with a Multibit DAC, a AK4490 DAC, a phono preamp module, or with no module at all, so it can be tailored to the customers’ specific needs. In addition, Lyr 3 can be converted from a hybrid design to an all-solid-state amp by using Schiit’s Octal LISST (a solid-state tube product.)
  • Powerful: Lyr 3 delivers its full 6W RMS of power at 32 ohms via the single-ended headphone jack, so there’s no need for balanced connections for high power. 
  • Convenient: Lyr 3 uses only a single tube, which means lower tube costs and no need for matched tube pairs.
The Lyr 3, the Multibit DAC, the 4490 DAC, and the phono preamp module are all available now at, together with tube and solid state gain options.
  • Lyr 3:
  • Lyr 3 with AK4490 DAC or Phono Preamp
  • Lyr 3 with Multibit
  • Add LISST (solid state tube)




Schiit JIL ADC


Affordable, High-Performance ADC For Ripping, Recording, and More

August 2, 2017, Valencia, CA. Today, Schiit introduced their first analog to digital converter (ADC), Jil. Jil's unique combination of low cost ($199) and high performance are ideal for enthusiasts looking to transfer rare or beloved records and tapes to their digital library. Jil can also be connected to a mixing board or mic preamp for live recording. 

"Jil is designed for customers looking for higher sonic performance than most inexpensive recording interfaces, but who still don't want to spend a fortune," said Mike Moffat, Schiit's Co-Founder. Jil is not Mike's first ADC, but it is by far his most affordable one (Mike's last ADC was the GAIN 1 system, co-designed with Nelson Pass, for Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs, a mastering-quality, multi-chassis, cost-no-object design.)

"We're experimenting," Mike added. "We've been pleasantly surprised by the success of the Mani phono preamp, so we thought we'd introduce a digital companion. Of course, Jil isn't just for archiving records—any line-level input will do."

Jil accepts any input from 400mV RMS to 3.5V RMS peak, providing convenient adjustment of clipping levels with a front-panel knob. Three sample rates, from 48kHz to 192kHz, are provided, with 24-bit sample depth. Digital output is via USB, for interfacing to a Mac or PC running any popular recording software, from Audacity to Logic Pro. 

Jil will be available at wihin a few weeks for 219 euro.


17 july 2017 - Schiit VIDAR and EITR new products released

update 20 july 2017The new products will be available from mid august expected, since than the firs stock will be released to europe!!

Affordable, No-Compromises High-End Audio is Back


July 17, 2017, Valencia, CA. Schiit Audio announced the availability of Vidar, an audio power amplifier rated at 100W RMS x 2 into 8 ohms, 200W RMS x 2 into 4 ohms, and 400W into 8 ohms as a monoblock. Vidar is a 100% discrete, fully complementary, current-feedback, Class-AB design with linear power supply and intelligent microprocessor management—a no-compromises design for the affordable price of $699.

"It's time to reset the bar for value in high-end audio," said Jason Stoddard, Schiit Audio's co-founder. "No matter how you look at it, Vidar is a true no-excuses design. There are no capacitors in the signal path. No DC servos. No Class D output stages. No switching supplies. No invasive current limiting. The power supply is insanely overbuilt—dual mono back to the transformer for high-current rails, with a separate linear regulated high voltage supply for input, voltage gain, and drivers. All critical operational points--temperature, DC offset, and current output--are monitored and set in real time via microprocessor control. At the same time, bias is held constant, allowing simplified testing of full power output with non-musical, steady-state signals."

Vidar is the culmination of multiple years of R&D at Schiit Audio, including the development of multiple candidate designs that ranged from MOSFET output stages with active heat tunnel cooling, to BJTs with large passive heatsinks (the design seen on the production Vidar.

"The challenge in developing an affordable amplifier lies mainly in keeping the cost of the chassis and heatsink reasonable," said Jason. "We ended up with a unique design that uses the heatsinks as a structural part of the chassis, allowing the rest of the components to be simple and efficient to produce. At the same time, we were able to get all components on a single PC board, which eliminates board-to-board wiring and simplifies production—while allowing the investment in a 4-layer board for optimized signal and power routing."

Vidar extends Schiit's growing line of audio products aimed at loudspeaker systems. It's a natural complement to the Saga and Freya preamplifiers, as well as Schiit's full line of multibit DACs. Customers who are interested in a no-compromise, tube-input, remote-control system with a relay attenuator can now combine Vidar with Saga and Bifrost Multibit to create a complete electronics package. 

"Less than the cost of some cables," jokes Jason.

Schiit Eliminates Need for USB "Band-Aids"

July 17, 2017, Valencia, CA. Today, Schiit Audio announced the availability of its new Gen 5 USB input and Eitr USB to SPDIF converter. Both products feature "Gen 5" USB technology with full electromagnetic and electrostatic isolation from the source, complete self-power, and precision crystal clock sources for both 44.1k and 48k sample rate multiples, for unprecedented performance. 

“Throw away your decrapifiers, regenerators, isolators, magic boxes, and all the rest of those USB band-aids,” Mike Moffat, Schiit’s Co-Founder said. “You don’t need them with our Gen 5 USB input.”

Mike Moffat notes that the Gen 5 USB technology achieves its UAC2 high-speed capability in a different way than most other USB inputs, using transformer coupling rather than optoisolation. “Transformers gave us better jitter performance,” Mike added. “This, coupled with much better local clocking, makes for the highest-performance USB input we’ve sold. I like to say it’s so good, we skipped a generation (from 4 to 5.)”

The USB Gen 5 input is now standard on all upgradable Schiit DACs. Retail prices remain the same as before, with Bifrost and Bifrost Multibit , Gungnir and Gungnir Multibit and Yggdrasil. Current owners of Schiit DACs with Gen 1, 2, and 3 USB inputs can upgrade with installation at our website from around mid august. All Gen 5 products are available for purchase on from early august, per model the product page will mention if the Gen 5 model is standard on your purchase.

New Modi Multibit version launched!!! (available for orders for opening price (will be raised probably),  delivery will take place 5-15 august as expected)

 The Most Affordable Advanced Multibit DAC—From Anyone, Anywhere 



 July 25, 2016, Valencia, CA. Today, Schiit Audio introduced Modi Multibit, the most affordable DAC in the Schiit Multibit lineup. Modi Multibit, which retails for expected price of 259 euro, joins Bifrost Multibit, Gungnir Multibit, and Yggdrasil in the Schiit Multibit DAC line.

 “Modi Multibit smashes the price barrier in advanced multibit DACs,” said Mike Moffat, Schiit’s Co-Founder and head of digital development. “It is the most affordable multibit DAC built on a modern architecture—from any manufacturer, in any country in the world.”

 Modi Multibit is built on Schiit’s proprietary multibit DAC architecture, featuring Schiit’s unique closed-form digital filter on an Analog Devices SHARC DSP processor. For D/A conversion, it uses a medical/military grade, true multibit converter specified down to 1/2LSB linearity, the Analog Devices AD5547CRUZ. 

 “It may seem incredible that, just a little over a year year after we introduced our first multibit DAC, Yggdrasil, we’re introducing a multibit DAC that includes a version of the same digital filter and a real multibit D/A converter for 89% lower cost,” said Mike. “But we don’t believe that you should have to spend a boatload for great sound, so it makes complete sense.”

Modi Multibit is Schiit Audio’s fourth multibit DAC, and is built on Schiit’s second major multibit platform that was developed from the ground up. It fits into the line as follows:

Vali 2 is introduced on the market...specs are class-leading, even when compared to hybrids that cost much more. Delivering a full 1W of power into 32 ohms, with an output impedance of only 1.2 ohms in low gain mode (5.8 ohms in high gain), and impressively low noise, the Vali 2 is suitable for virtually any headphone or IEM.

Vali 2 also offers the convenience of preamp outputs, which can be used to create a desktop system using powered monitors, or to connect to speaker power amplifiers.
Finally, Vali 2’s tube is user-replaceable, which opens up the possibility of “tuning” the sound via using different types of tubes, AKA “tube rolling.” The Vali 2 accepts many popular varieties of tubes, including 6DJ8, 6N23P, ECC88, 6922, and more.

Enhanced Performance and Flexibility; New Uber Models

Two years after the announcement of the original Magni headphone amplifier and Modi USB DAC, Schiit Audio introduces the next generation: Magni 2 and Modi 2, together with their even more feature-packed Uber models. This introduction means additional flexibility and performance for Magni 2 and Modi 2 at the same price level as the original Magni and Modi, while Magni 2 Uber and Modi 2 Uber reset the value equation for entry-level products.
"We've added gain switching to Magni 2, and 24/192 capability to Modi 2, and kept them at the same price as the originals," said Jason Stoddard, Schiit's Co-Founder. "But we went all-out on the Uber models, adding preamp outputs and higher power to Magni 2 Uber, and making the Modi 2 Uber essentially a mini-Bifrost, with optical, coaxial, and USB inputs. Now, the flexibility and performance you can expect at the entry point to high-end personal audio is much higher than ever before."
Uber combo
In total, four products were announced:
Magni 2. All-new discrete headphone amp with 1.2W RMS per channel and switchable high/low gain, together with a refined constant-feedback gain stage. The update of what's arguably the most popular headphone amp, ever.
Magni 2 Uber. All-new discrete headphone amp with 1.5W RMS per channel, switchable high/low gain, preamp outputs, and even more sophisticated constant-feedback gain stage. Also includes new 24VA wall transformer (3x larger than Magni) and aluminum top chassis and knob.
Modi 2. All-new USB asynchronous DAC with switchable USB Class 1 and Class 2 modes. USB Class 1 remains driverless for all supported computers, USB Class 2 adds 24/192 capability, but requires drivers for Windows. The update of one of the most popular USB DACs ever.
Modi 2 Uber. All-new USB, optical, and coaxial three-input DAC running full USB Class 2 for 24/192 capability through all inputs. Essentially a mini Bifrost. AC linear power supply with included 8VA wall transformer. Aluminum pushbutton and top chassis.
Like all Schiit products, the complete Magni/Modi line is made in the USA, with the vast majority of its total production cost going to companies manufacturing in the USA, and local assembly, testing, and support through Schiit’s Valencia, CA offices. 
Magni and Modi were the sons of Thor in Norse legend. Magni 2, Modi 2, Magni 2 Uber, and Modi 2 Uber are available to order now on the Schiit website.

Ragnarok is the first truly universal amplifier, fully capable of powering everything from IEMs to loudspeakers. With up to 100 watts per channel into 4 ohms, 3 selectable gains, a sophisticated relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control, complete microprocessor management of all operational points, including bias and DC offset, and Schiit’s Crossfet™ circlotron-style output topology, Ragnarok completely befits its name—in Norse legend, Ragnarok was the “end of the world.”


From IEMs to Loudspeakers
Go ahead. Plug in your sensitive headphones and set Ragnarok’s gain to 1. You’ll enjoy a silent background, and the fine control that a 64-step attenuator can provide. Or run it with the most power-hungry orthos you know. With gain set at 20, and 15W RMS into 32 ohms, you’re ready for an amazing performance. Speakers? No problem. With 60W per channel into 8 ohms, Ragnarok delivers amazing performance with most popular speakers.
A Complete Integrated Amp
Ragnarok includes 5 relay-switched inputs—two balanced and three single-ended, as well as balanced and single-ended preamp outputs for use as a preamp. For outputs, both balanced and single-ended outputs are provided for headphones, and balanced speaker terminal outputs for loudspeakers.
Nothing In the Signal Path Except Signal
Ragnarok is an "intelligent" amplifier, using a microprocessor to oversee every aspect of its operation—from quiescent bias, to DC offset, to complete fault protection. It’s also designed so that any major problem mutes all the outputs and reverts the amp to its low-gain, zero volume mode. This means we can dispense with coupling caps and DC servos entirely, for a gain stage that has nothing in the signal path—except for your music.
Made in USA 
By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. Ragnarok is built to order in Valencia, CA, by our most experienced assemblers, subjected to a rigorous series of both instrumented and listening tests, and burnt in for 100+ hours before being re-tested and shipped. As with all of our products, the vast majority of the total production cost of Ragnarok—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our board house is 20 minutes away from our office in Newhall. Our chassis guys are just over the hill in the Valley.
