Schiit got started in 2010 when two audio industry veterans decided it was time to shake things up a bit. The two audiophiles are Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo, and Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta. Together, they have designed dozens of audio and A/V products before Schiit, from the Andromeda III to the Cobalt 307 to the DS Pre and Angstrom 200. From fully balanced differential power amplifiers, fully discrete I/V conversion stages, audiophile D/A converters, and relay-switched stepped attenuator volume controls in preamps and the first DTS home theatre surround processor on the market, Schiit has done a ton of stuff. Schiit DAC and Amplifiers have been adopted by professionals and audiophiles alike.
Over the years, products like Schiit Magni, Schiit Fulla, Schiit Hel, Schiit Modi and Schiit Modius have been critically acclaimed and have propelled Schiit to heights unimaginable. Schiit believes that close-coupled, local control of all of the aspects of production delivers better products. That's why Schiit designs and produces its products in the USA, with the vast majority of parts costs going to US-based companies manufacturing in the US.
