Schiit Aegir power amplifier low power Class-A linear amp Stereophile review
I posted about that review on the audio karma forum.  There was surprise expressed, with one poster immediately disparaging Stereophile.  Mind you Stereophile also praised the amp brand that this particular poster was raving about, but no word on ... 
Just how big is our foot print?
ebm, you should take your own advice. 
Full Range under $5k-ish
As a previous owner of the Parasound P5, next year(when your bank account has recovered!) I'd suggest a new pre.  The P5 is not completely faithful to the signal and the phono section is nothing special, something that is common among budget compo... 
Schiit Freya S or Freya +?
There is an audiophile on youtube that reviewed the original Freya.  He goes by the handle "Thomas & Stereo" and thinks the Freya gives him 90% of what his $3500 preamp does, at 1/5th the price. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwMXMtSprxI No... 
Direct sales (online) and international distribution. What a... schiit?
Brother, that’s a shame.  I buy from Canada where there is no dealer, and so have no other option.  I just checked the schiit.com website and could not find any mention of their dealers in other countries or continents.i agree with you that this i... 
Just how big is our foot print?
There are a group of several in this forum who seem to post dozens of times per day(with post counts sometimes over 17,000, I can't comprehend how someone would have that much time on their hands).  These types of posters could politely be termed ... 
Anyone heard Schiit's Aegir?
AQ Rocket 44’s are my main speaker cables and do really well with the Vidar.  I’d be jones’n for some Aegirs too if my speakers were more efficient! Thus my Jones like behaviour is limited to the new Freya +.  I keep telling myself that the balanc... 
Anyone heard Schiit's Aegir?
Yeah, abery, it does look pretty impressive. I was somewhat shocked that Stereophile would put it in the Class A category, that’s really saying something.  Right up there with the super expensive amps.I’ve got the schiit Vidar, and almost can’t be... 
Anyone heard Schiit's Aegir?
Read Stereophile magazine, they just gave it a Class A rating.   It’s in the same category as amps costing the price of a German car. 
Looking for amp $1000 or under
It might not be a bad idea to mention the pre amp as well, it will have something to say about the end result.  I’m also wondering about the cabling, or at least the speaker cables.  Hopefully pizzamn is using more than just lamp cord. 
A21 vs McCormack?
Just a side bar, but the A21 is not made in China.  Joecollege is plain wrong and all he had to do was a simple fact check before typing.   
High value, giant killer speakers?
Incorrect.  The Vidar is a very robust design that Schiit has even demoed with Maggies.  They wouldn’t do that if it revealed weaknesses in their amp.   The little LRS is getting 200wpc with the Vidar.when I got the Vidar I was surprised that it h... 
Best budget preamp for my entry level system?
For anyone reading this thread after the fact, some thoughts come to mind. Starting a thread here(or most audio forums) and asking an open ended question like what budget preamp should I buy, is not going to be very helpful as you can see above. D... 
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
The opening statement of the thread is judgemental. It sounds as if he’s flying by the seat of his pants with his theorizing if audiophiles and the state of the loudspeaker marketplace.We are not being deceived or duped, it sounds like a vast cons... 
Long time analog user dips his toe in Schiit, Grungnir multibit.
Another Canadian owner of the Gumby chiming in. I tried Emotiva and Audioquest DACs previously and was blown away by the Schiit Modi Uber. So much so that I immediately knew that schiit was making seriously good er, stuff, and quickly traded it in...
