Details

What if we made a Class A version of the Vidar? No, wait, strike that. What if we made a better-than-Class-A-in-many-respects version of the Vidar? Well, here you go. Meet Aegir.
 
Continuity™: Benefits Beyond Class A
Aegir is our first Continuity speaker amplifier, extending a technology we introduced with the Lyr 3 headphone amp. Technically, Continuity is a way to eliminate transconductance droop outside of the Class A bias region, and extend the benefits of Class A biasing. It also solves the NPN and PNP device mismatch problem, since it uses both NPN and PNP devices on both rails. It’s still a very hot-running amp, though, with over 10W of Class A standing bias.
 
A True No-Excuses Design
Like Vidar, Aegir uses an exotic current-feedback topology, as well as a 100% linear power supply (with 7 separate voltage rails and 600VA transformer) and microprocessor oversight to eliminate capacitors and DC servos in the signal path. No Class D, no switching supplies, no fans, no compromises, nothing in the signal path but music—for a three-figure price tag.
 
Power That Scales
Aegir provides 20W into 8 ohms, doubling to 40W into 4 ohms. Run mono, and you’ll see 80W into 8 ohms and 120W into 4 ohms. Best of all, Continuity ensures you see Class-A-like performance at all these power outputs.
  
Convenient Standby Mode
On Aegir, we’ve added a front-panel button to put the amp into Standby mode. This de-biases the output stage completely and reduces standing power consumption from 200W to about 15W. This keeps the rest of the amp up and running, without massive heat output.
 
Designed and Assembled in USA
By “designed and assembled in USA" this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production cost of Aegir—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our chassis are made minutes from our facility. Our PCBs are done just over the hill from us, or done in NorCal. Our transformers are also made in California. You get the picture. 
 
5-Year Warranty and Easy Return Policy
Aegir is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts, labour for 2 years.

Klant Recensies

best sound for the price Recensie door Jordy
I'll start with people's biggest concern when buying this amp, the power output. I use this with the saga s preamp, a preamp with 0 gain what means it doesn't amplify the source input at all. That and the fact that i use it with not very efficient vintage jbl speakers (87db, 8ohm) means that i have to turn it up almost 3/4th to get normal listening level, at max it's louder than i would usually listen. But that has more to do with the saga s not giving any gain, paired with a preamp with some gain, like the freya, i wouldn't say power is a concern.

Now for the sound quality, to keep it short, you won't find a better sounding amp at this price and far above it. I always had late 80s luxman gear and never thought it could get much better than that but it did with this one.

conclusion, if you value sound quality more than making your neighbours angry get this one (Verzonden op 29-08-2019)
Excellent amplifier Recensie door Thierry
Aegir is sincerely an excellent amplifier. Power and refinement: deep and rich soundscape.
I use it with high efficiency, full-range speakers (Zu Audio Essence) and Schiit Saga preamplifier ( Shuguang black treasure tube). Perfect match.
In my opinion, the sound signature is ( nearly) similar to F5 First Watt amplifier which is a reference for audiophile connoisseurs.
I strongly recommandante it. Yours sincerely, Thierry Malarmey (Verzonden op 16-08-2019)

Schiit Aegir is really special. Buy 2 of them now. Recensie door Carlos
Started with 1, liked so much that I bought a 2nd one. Absolutely great sound, stage deep and large, precise positioning of the instruments, sound so real and that class a/class aish - whatever - sound that is so natural. They get very hot which is a good sign - means that bias is very high, like it should, being class a/aish. Now the monos are feed by Audio Research CD5->McIntosh C220 and are connected to Avangarde Duo Omega. Buy the Aegirs - if you still find them, they are out of stock now in Europe. I have McIntosh MC 1,2kW monos, McIntosh MC2102, Audion SET Golden Night 300B monos, Devialet 200 and JOB/Goldmund integrated as other amplifiers. Yup, I'm addicted to great amplifiers. Schiit Aegir is now one of them, at least to me. (Verzonden op 18-06-2019)
