    It varies by measurement. Here are some examples:
    4096 - Signal / Noise
    8192 - THD
    65536 - Dual Tone

    If you are looking for process gain then these measurements would have
    33 dB - S/N
    36 dB - THD
    45 dB - Dual Tone

    So the difference in process gain between those examples are 12 dB maximum.

    I just ran across this thread…

    And after hearing the little beasty, I gotta say this amp is crazy good.

    I like Bob's summation of it being, "a wire with gain", as it seems to have no character of it's own.
    Which means if the output is a problem, look elsewhere for the culprit.

    What's been amazing to me is the Jotunheim's ability to resolve details. It's as clear as a bell and has given me many "wow" moments just in the short time that I have owned it.

    The first time I put London Philharmonic through the amp I felt like I was sitting right in front of the orchestra. It has brought joy to genres I never really spent time listening to before!

    Measurements look awesome! I've been recommending Audio GD for a good mid Range Balanced Amp/Dac for a long time now, good to see Schiit is now competing in that price bracket and market segment! Good competition will hopefully drive the market towards better options for everyone!

    Sagaheim is a powerful combination. I am currently rocking a PS Vane 6SN7 in the Saga with Jotenheim.

    Great work! Appreciate reading through threads like these.

    I'm curious how long you have the amp powered on before you run your testing? Wondering if you have ever compared cold Jot measurements to one that's been left on for a couple of days.
