Schiit products are the sh*t. Marvel at the weight, heft and solidity of their affordable and overbuilt products that have been built for the real world. They believe that local control of all the production aspects leads to phenomenal products. Literally all their stuff is manufactured in the US including the parts. They passionately design, assemble and test everything in Valencia, California.
Unlike other DAC manufacturers around the world that employ a reduced-bit technology called “delta sigma”, Schiit has innovated unique multibit DAC architectures that use current-production, medical/military grade D/A converters. These expensive multibit DACs have linearity specs that far exceed most DACs available today. Explore the Schiit Yggdrasil, Gungnir Multibit, or Bifrost Multibit to know more.
Even their cheapest headphone amp is a mini, fully discrete DC coupled, Lin-topology power amplifier. They aim for perfect channel matching, no ICs in the signal parts, and a relay-switched stepped attenuator that can comfortably drive all kinds of headphones or speaker systems - big or small. Have a look at the Lyr 2, Mjolnir 2, and Ragnarok to amp your mind with the details!
