Anyone running Schiit Audio Freya preamp and a pair of Vidar power amps? What speakers?


If  so what speakers are you using? Do you have any of their other units in the chain? Do you like the sound, and if so describe the characteristics that appeal to you.

I have the Freya but not the Vidars.
The Freya Goes into Emotive XPA-100 Monoblocks..
I had Tekton Pendragons up until 4 weeks ago..
had a financial crunch and the Pendragons[and SVS Sub] sold before the Guitar Amps I had for sale.
Would rather have sold a few of the Amps but I was in a close time window.I mostly use the Freya in JFET or Passive mode but for some Music,Acoustic,Jazz etc,the Tube part of the Freya sounds good.
have to be carefull when you go to the Tube section cause it really has loads of gain!
I also sometimes run the Freya into a Primaluna Prologue 5 two channel amp.
Not when I'm playing Heavy Metal to be sure!

Sounds/looks to me like the best "new" bang for buck setup one can get, and from what I saw inside the Vidar's, they look to be able to be increased in capacitance of the power supply by at least double, I'll keep a look out for these on the used market.

As far as sound quality, a single Vidar should sound better than a bridge pair if the single is doing it comfortably wattage wise, although you don’t have the wattage with a single, than you do with bridged pair.

Negatives with bridging amps:
1 More distortion
2 Less damping factor (higher output impedance) "bass control"
3 Less current ability
4 Not able to drive as low impedance as non bridged.

Positives with bridging:
1:More wattage


As for speakers if you look at the above, single or bridged Vidars
For inefficient (<85db) speakers, that have an easy'ish impedance load (>4-8ohm) go with the bridged Vidars
For efficient speakers (>85db) that are a not so easy load (2-4ohms), go with a single Vidar.

Freya has been back order with a Vidar for quite sometime...looking forward to KEF R1 using balanced vidars passive Freya balanced Yggy (A2).  Currently Magni 3 driving single Vidar....too much gain...but beautiful sound and deeper bass than should be possible from a stand mount sans sub woofer
I've had a Freya since last November and I think it's a giant killer of a preamp. Mine doesn't have some of the things people quibble about with these, it's utterly humless, the stock tubes aren't microphonic, and I hit the LEDs with some green magic marker to dim them (my only quibble, and trust me, a pain to remove the lid and get it back together with the LEDs lined up properly...man...). I did replace the stock tubes with NOS Sylvanias and it's simply a great sounding preamp with more inputs, balanced and otherwise, than most out there, and a flawless 128 step volume control system...for 700 bucks. I use it with a 12 watt per side single ended tube amp.

Love my Freya too. Using it with a Vincent SP-331. Can't imagine a better $700 pre-amp new, with warranty. Service is excellent too.
