Schiit Audio introduced Jotunheimroot
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.
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.
