Odyssey "Khartago" Stereo Extreme" amp compared to Schitt's "Vidar" amp
@georgehifi has a bias against Odyssey. It’s obvious and he’s made this clear in more than a few threads. Beside the BS calls by a couple of members here trying to con the gullible, that they are 35w Class-A per channel.The one thing I've alwa... 
can you add tone controls to a primaluna HP integrated amp
How much for your loki George Don’t own one, I like my systems balance, but I still want one, I bidded on a used one on ebay, but it went higher than I wanted to go $100. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Schiit-Loki-Equalizer-/283521748202?hash=item42033...

Your are incorrect and delusionalRead 35w idle draw at the bottom of the specs http://www.odysseyaudio.com/products-stratos-mono.html And as I explained, no chance in the world 35w Class-A per channel from a 150w a/b amps with those heatsinks, nev...

Why you would let me borrow it ? Cause he's a "saint" https://cdn0.iconfinder.com/data/icons/totalcake-emoticons/35/saint-512.pngBut you can also trial them for 15 days from Schiit, small restocking fee if returned.Cheres George

This is a laugh, rodman99999 you need to look at things better, and try to understand them. I just had a look at the site.35W IS THE POWER CONSUMPTION. NOT!!!! THE CLASS-A PER CHANNEL !!!The Stratos at 150w  would be lucky to have 2w of Class-A  p...

35w Class-A per channel out of the 150w Stratus You have been conned, "if" you were told this. You need to go to EE school, "35w of Class-A per channel on a 150w amp"!!!!, Means it would have massive heat sinks and be the size of a coffee table t...

I'm guessing you can't read, I already answered that by saying "I’m just going with more Class-A of the two for the mids and highs only, and that’s the Schiit Aegir’s has 20watts! of Class-A"

And we know Mike Moffat is no fool in Electronic Engineering design, I’d back him over Klaus any day No! I believe you "think" I believe he is. so credit should be given to Jason, as well as Mike. Yes agreed, but we all know who is the front ma... 
Odyssey "Khartago" Stereo Extreme" amp compared to Schitt's "Vidar" amp
So- assumptions, now- to include Klaus(as being a fool, regarding EE design). I believe you are for now trying to put words into my mouth by twisting what I said. I said Mike Moffat is no fool, (not Klaus) I'd back him over Klaus.  And yes a fr...

are you making assumptions? Have you against the Aegir, I’m just going with more Class-A of the two for the mids and highs, and that’s the Schiit Aegir’s 20watts! And we know Mike Moffat is no fool in Electronic Engineering design, I'd back him o... 
Odyssey "Khartago" Stereo Extreme" amp compared to Schitt's "Vidar" amp
his price points are incorrect. Over here in Oz there on the money, even "if" a bit more over there, the Schitt combo would still sound better than the equivalent Odyssey or higher for that matter. As you’ll have real 20w class-A running the mids... 
What are the advantages to a Class A amp & what are the trade offs?
Threshold 400A class A I believe it's a push pull 100w Class-A/B amp. And with those heat sinks, about a max of 15w of Class-A,  with rail volts for 100w Class-B.Cheers George

sunnyjim OP speakers are Golden Ear Technology model 7’s which might possibly be replaced by Magneplanar .7 speakers, or something better If you get speakers that are bi-amp’able, I would go these two amps horizontally bi-amped, still cheaper tha... 
What are the advantages to a Class A amp & what are the trade offs?
A big advantage of Class A amps is that by the standards of any AB amp they have a hugely overbuilt power supply and they can drive low impedance loads without faltering. Yes they should have, but not all have, I’ve seen them with supplies that a... 
What are the advantages to a Class A amp & what are the trade offs?
Class-A has yet to be equaled in my experience. Correct, if done right. Why do many of us spend $$$K's on our equipment especially BS cables, for only 10% "if any" in sound quality increase over something that cost a 10th or 100th of the price....
