SCHIIT'S FIRST ADC: JIL

 

07/29/2017

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 www.schiit-europe.com 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 schiit-europe.com from early august, per model the product page will mention if the Gen 5 model is standard on your purchase.

23 december 2016 - Freya also launched

Schiit announced that its first two dedicated 2-channel products are now available: the Saga (single-ended) and Freya (balanced) remote-control preamps. Saga already available for order and shipping from Schiit-Europe and Freya only pre-order.
 
Schiit Freya
 
"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."
 
Both preamps were designed as no-compromise high-end components, using design techniques and topologies typically seen on much more expensive gear. Saga and Freya 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. 
 
"These new preamps are the perfect companions to our line of multibit DACs," said Mike Moffat. "Combine them with any of the DACs—from the 279 Modi Multibit to the 2590 euro Yggdrasil—and you have a really amazing system, without the heart-attack price."

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.

SCHIIT PREVIEWS 2-CHANNEL LINE AT RMAF

 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. 

 “We’ve essentially blown up the entire idea of a DAC/amp,” said Jason Stoddard, Schiit’s Co-Founder and head of analog development. “Every other DAC/amp has built-in obsolescence. When digital technology changes, you’re stuck with throwing the whole thing away, even if it has a perfectly good amp section. Jotunheim’s modular architecture means you can simply change DAC modules when technology changes.”

 

 Stoddard said that Jotunheim’s advantages go beyond non-obsolescence. A customer could choose the Passive MM Phono module for a turntable system. And, in the future, additional modules could provide other capabilities.

  “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. 

 Jotunheim’s unique topology allows Schiit to optimize the performance even beyond the analog inputs, however. It enables the use of a passively-filtered, hardware-balanced DAC module featuring two AKM AK4490 DACs—essentially eliminating one stage between a typical DAC and amp. This means that Jotunheim’s performance as a DAC isn’t compromised by its headphone amp, and vice-versa. 
 
The available MM Phono Module offers exceptional performance for most moving-magnet (MM) cartridges. With 44dB of gain and a massive 53mV overload point, it features fully passive RIAA equalization and DC coupling via a DC servo. 

 

 Jotunheim is available in the following configurations.

 

 - Jotunheim (no module)        
 
- Jotunheim with DAC Module        
 
- Jotunheim with MM Phono Module 

 
The Schiit Jotunheim is available for purchase at www.schiit-europe.com in this week....

New Modi Multibit version launched!!!

 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:

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!
