Dual AKM AK4490
Why buy a desktop system that will get outdated within a few years? The Schiit Jotunheim is meant to say 'goodbye' to this. You can use it as an internal DAC, amp or a phono preamp as well as upgrade it to anything else whenever needed. It's ready to handle sensitive IEMs, power-hungry headphones and powered desktop monitors with 5W output into 32 ohms from the balanced outputs.
Tailor your Jotunheim exactly according to your needs. Pick the Multibit DAC Module to get Schiit’s multi-bit DAC architecture & unique digital filter or the AK4490 DAC Module for a world-class delta-sigma DAC or even MM Phono Input Module, for passive RIAA, 42dB of gain & great phono sound.
The Jotunheim's gain stage is unique. Without using summers or splitters, it offers a balanced and single-ended output thanks to its inherently balanced & fully discrete current feedback topology. You get the advantage of constant, low feedback throughout the audio band with its wide bandwidth and excellent measured performance. The bottom line? Superb performance from each input & output.

Jotunheim like all schiit products is elegantly minimalist block of aluminium (I think); very solid and sturdy. It is extremely powerful especially out of the balanced out and am sure it can drive any headphone. Sound is powerful, detailed and fast. While essentially neutral, being a highly transparent solid state amp, the bass has plenty of slam and treble is extended & delineated. Jotunheim delivers a wide and layered soundstage. The dac unit is well worth the extra money and beyond; it is dual chip and gives balanced signal I think to the amp. The dac and amp on the Jotunheim has superb synergy with Sennheiser HD 650 and drives this 300ohm beast like a champ.
I own a pair of Audeze Lcd X and Beyer T5p headphones driven by a Fiio X7 mk2 DAP. Coming from a Fiio X3 the X7 was a big leap in sound quality and i've been very pleased with it. But since i saw the 1-4W amp recommendation in the Lcd X specs, i've had a nagging doubt that X7 amp didn't have enough power to drive it to it's full potential. So, i've been looking for a nice desktop amp to power the Lcd X. My search quickly narrowed down to a couple of amps. I was seriously considering the Violectric V200, but was discouraged by the warranty and buying process on another Indian site. My experience on headphonezone has been very positive... the site, the buying process as well as the people behind it. The Schiit Mjolnir was in my budget but it was ruled out since it only works best with a balanced headphone connection. Chord Hugo is a sexy little thing but too expensive and i wasn't convinced about it's amp.Then as luck would have it a few days back i got notified via mail about the availability of the Jotenheim and i quickly made the purchase based on good reviews online. I also ordered an Audioquest 3.5mm to RCA cable as the Jotenheim comes only with a power cable. After letting it break in for a few hours i plugged in my Lcd X and sat down for a listen and was pleasantly surprised. The immediate difference i noticed was in the soundstage which is wider and more significantly has depth! Also immediately apparent was the improved separation and detail retrieval. Now, it's no secret that all audio equipment sound different. But the Jotenheim clearly sounds better than the AM3A amp in X7. I love the sound. Build quality is great: simple and functional. It's got enough power for most any headphone, has preamp out and balanced input. You can also order one with a DAC module, though from what i've read it's not at the same level as the amp. For the asking price the Jotenheim is worth every paisa. A stellar product.
Wow. Quite heavy for its size. Heavy is good. As far as amp is concerned, I believe. Bought the amp with balanced DAC module and loving it through and through. the only gripe I have is the unavailability of 3 mm headphone plug. Would have make life easier and not having to buy additional adapter.
It has opened up the sound stage appreciably. The power can also be felt in the mid range and bass department. Apparently, the music seems to be cleaner and each instruments seems to hold its own ground and not treading on others or being trodden upon
