I want an amp with the tonality of the Magni3+ but with much better technicalities.
Another amp in the freya/Gungnir chassis size please, RIP Mjolnir.
I'd love a tube amp that fills the no man's land between $500 and $2K
I'm pretty sure Schiit has us covered on all those needs LOL. I just know I can't afford any of it right now :(
Lyr 3 is better than J2, IMO. Also isn’t Rag 2 basically an amp with Magni 3+ tonality but better technicalities?
I don’t know I haven’t seen much buzz about the Rag2 only the Rag1 so I don’t know what it sounds like. I suppose I should search the forums. But it’s balanced only which is really annoying considering how many of the best amps are SE. It’s hard to setup a rig for both.
Balanced only? It’s got SE in and SE out for headphones and SE pre out. Balanced connections for all those as well.
Oh sorrry you’re right. I was looking at it on Schiit’s website yesterday and didn’t notice the SE jack.
I wasn't around for Schiit's evolution over the last 10 years. It seems the Mjolner is the headphone amp that seems missing from their lineup when I look at it. And it is. It will be interesting to see if they come up with something else in that price range or if they decide the lack luster sales means it's not a great price range to be in.
Aside from parts shortages, I think they also found that particular form factor was not particularly great for desktops, where a lot of people use headphones. Rag is as wide and deep and taller but is an integrated amp for speakers as well, so a different use case. I’m very curious what they release in place of the Mjolnir 2.
The Mjolnir 2 is gone, and if Jason could make an SMD version of MJ1, I would be first to sign up.
It's always schiit with you people: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-yZHveWFvqM Half-joking aside, enough already with the balanced, the multi-purpose, and the tiny tubes! A 6SN7-driven OTL *exclusively* for high-Z dynamics at $900–1,100.
I’d prefer a good ortho amp but yes I see your point @Claritas It’s a bit strange how far behind Shiit’s amps seem compared to their DACs.
Jason's amazing guy. If this is how good he is now, imagine how great he's going to be in 20 years. He should live and be well.
