With the Schiit Asgard 3, enjoy a Continuity™ output stage that delivers 3.5W into 32 ohms while running 500mW of Class A bias. This gives you a lot of power that's produced by the ¼” jack letting you drive just about any headphone, even those without balanced cables. The low noise floor makes it perfect for sensitive IEMs. Connect the preamp output to your powered monitors for a complete desktop system.
Depending on your requirements, use the Asgard 3 through two DAC modules or no module at all. Choose the AK4490 G2 DAC module for a world-class delta-sigma DAC or select the True Multibit DAC Module to experience Schiit’s unique digital filter and multibit DAC architecture. Select from the internal card or rear-panel analogue input and pick between high or low gain with convenient front switches.

Schiit - Asgard 3 Amp
Because sometimes you have to change. The original Asgard was introduced in June 2010. It was a good amp for its time, and we improved it with the introduction of the Asgard 2 in 2012, which added gain switching and preamp outputs. But since then, Asgard has kinda run in place, while Magni has doubled its power output, and its bigger sisters have become modular. And so, with the development of our Continuity constant-transconductance output stage, it was time to think about giving Asgard 2 an extreme makeover—one that would result in performance far above and beyond anything any previous Asgard could deliver.
That's cool. Think of Asgard 3 as a 500mW Class A amp with a 3.5W "turbo mode." Does that help?
In short, it’s a completely different amp. Here’s the breakdown:
Before you pass judgment, you may want to try Asgard 3 out. For what it’s worth, any output class has its advantages and disadvantages. In addition to other benefits, Class A also has the benefit of being called Class A, which makes it seem like it's inherently better than AB, B, C, D, and H. Oh wait, what is H? Look it up. There's a bunch of different amp classes out there, some of which you'll never see in audio (Class B and C are really not suited for such an application.) Continuity is our way of extending the benefit of Class A past the Class A bias region—to keep the transconductance from "drooping" outside of Class A. John Broskie and Bob Cordell have written a whole lot about this problem, and we're just trying to address it. As an added benefit, our Continuity output stage also has both NPN and PNP conducting at the same time on both sides of the rail, which mitigates mismatch between these devices (again, N and P devices are never really complementary.)
Asgard 3 joins Lyr 3 and Aegir in our Continuity amp roster.
Asgard 3 has plenty of power for pretty much anything. Whether you’re talking 300 or 600 ohm headphones or relatively inefficient planars, Asgard has plenty of power for both.
Yes. We’ve tested extensively with IEMs, and Asgard 3’s very low noise floor is ideal for them in low gain mode.
Plugging in headphones automatically disconnects the pre-outs.
There’s a toggle switch on the front of the amp.
Cool? Nope. It’s still running 500mW Class A bias at 32 ohms, which is quite a bit. Cooler than older Asgards? Yes. But it’s still gonna be a warm-running amp. You shouldn't be blocking the ventilation holes.
And technically, that’s still not a question. If you want an amp that runs cold, it’s best to look elsewhere.
Nope. Lots of people thought it was too bright, so we got rid of it. We did put a white LED inside so you can see that it's running, and also maybe to project a nice pattern on your ceiling at night.
Don’t sweat it, This Schiit product is covered by a 5 Years manufacturer's warranty.
Our Headphone Guru’s Top Recommendations for You
The story of Schiit Audio begins with two veteran audiophiles Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta coming together to shake things up a bit. Both of them have extensive experience in developing lots of audio and A/V products including the Andromeda III, Cobalt 307, DS Pre and Angstrom 200. From power amplifiers, I/V conversion stages, D/A converters, relay-switched stepped attenuator volume controls in preamps to developing the first DTS home theatre surround processor on the market, Schiit Audio has developed a lot of audio products over the years.
Headphones are the need of the hour everyone who likes music uses a headphone. Therefore Schiit Audio moved to develop personal audio equipment while continuing to design a speaker-based system which includes the industry-leading preamps, amps and DACs. So right now Schiit Audio has a plethora of audio products ranging from personal audio to speaker-based systems. Schiit designs affordable audio products that bring happiness in your lives.
Unlike ordinary DACs that use delta-sigma, NOS (new old stock) D/A chips, multibit chips, high-cost R2R ladders, Schiit uses unique DSP-based closed-form digital filter which improves the sonic performance of the multibit DAC. Therefore the Schiit's multibit technology brings all of it together using the current-production, medical/military grade D/A converters.
Schiit has opted for an innovative approach for the analog side as well. Even the most affordable Schiit headphone amplifier is a miniature, fully discrete, DC coupled, current-feedback power amplifier. Schiit is credited for introducing Continuity output stage to solve the issue of transconductance droop which was common in Class AB amplifier design. Schiit has also developed balanced topologies like Nexus in Ragnarok 2 and a perfect combination of tube and solid-state with Coherence in Lyr 3.
All the Schiit products are designed for solidity and durability. Even the smallest of the products are made of aluminium and steel while the larger products are made of high-end C core transformers, power supply filtering and low-noise control. All the products have to go through severe testing procedures including the latest APx555 audio analyzer and Avermetrics analyzers. Every product from Asgard and up goes through burn-in to address the issues faced during the initial period of usage. Schiit takes care of all the service and support requirements so that you can concentrate on great sound.
Schiit believes that local control of all the aspects of production improves the delivering of the product. Therefore all the Schiit products are designed and made in the USA and most of the cost of the components are going to the US-based companies. Assembled in the USA means that Schiit's chassis guys are from San Fernando Valley, Schiit transformers are made in California, Schiit boards come from the east coast of the USA and all the designing, assembling and testing of Schiit products happen in Valencia, California.
