A stack of Schiit components.

More Schiit from the Axpona 2019 audio show was to be expected, as the two-channel segment of the audiophile market is learning, and learning fast. Schiit Audio debuts with Salk Sound a pair of Class-A stereo amplifiers configured for this system as monoblocks. Also on display was a prototype model of Schiit Audio’s forthcoming turntable.

Starting with the new Aegir, which is available now on Schiit’s website for $799 USD, and ships within 3-5 days depending on stock levels. The new Aegir is a 20 wpc @ 8-ohms (40 wpc @ 4-ohms) stereo amplifier, and in monoblock configuration a stout 80 wpc @ 8-ohms.… Read the full article

Putting Schiit’s half-width Saga pre-amplifier (US$349) and Vidar power amplifier (US$699) through their paces a year ago, I pitted them against AURALiC’s Polaris (US$3500), Vinnie Rossi’s LIO (US$5500 and up) and the Peachtree’s nova300 (US$2299) to find the Schiit pile – functional shortcomings notwithstanding – capable of pulling up alongside the more costly, tidier integrateds.… Read the full article

Like other some other audio show appearances, Schiit Audio pulled up residence in both the headphone area and in a two channel room at RMAF this year. The company recently broke party lines and returned to their roots with the release of a full-fledged loudspeaker pres and a mono/stereo power amp separates. Still hot off the R & D bench, the Vidar amps ($699) push 400 watts of Class AB in mono mode, and make a great pairing with the Schiit’s balanced tube pre Freya, also priced at $699.… Read the full article
