This is what SYS stands for. The Schiit SYS, simply put, is a 2-way switch and potentiometer. This preamp contains neither the electronics nor the power you find in other Schiit products. But, thanks to this, you get absolutely no distortion.
Pair your DAC with a powered monitor or phono preamp and crank up the volume with the SYS. Need to use two sources with a Schiit amplifier? No worries. This preamp can switch between devices with ease. It can connect to just about any line-level source including PCs, iPods, Macs, DVD Players, tuners, etc.
|NUMBER OF INPUTS||2 (stereo RCA)|
|NUMBER OF OUTPUTS||1 (stereo RCA)|
|INPUT IMPEDANCE||10k ohms|
|OUTPUT IMPEDANCE||5k ohms maximum|
|WEIGHT||453g (1 lb)|
Schiit - SYS PreampStick-on feet
Yep, that's exactly what it's meant for
Sure. Add it as a second input, and you can switch between them. Double the fun!
Yep, that works too. As do iPods, iPads, computers, Android phones, iPhones, Android tablets, Windows computers, Mac computers, DVD players, Blu-ray players, cassette players, tuners, digital radio receivers, or anything else with line-level output.
Absolutely, you can use SYS to connect two sources to any power amp with RCA inputs, and control the volume.
Turn the volume all the way up and use the switch.
Then just use one input.
Yes, with the volume all the way up. But why not just use RCA Y-cables or splitters, like these?
The downside to a passive preamp is exactly that—it's passive. That means there are no electronics in it. Which means it can't drive really long cable runs. If you're expecting to run 35' RCA cables to your power amp, Sys isn't going to be the best option. If you're running 6' cables to desktop speakers, that's not a problem. We'd be careful with anything longer than 15' on Sys, depending on the cable type.
Don't sweat it, this Schiit SYS Preamp comes with a 2 year warranty from Schiit that covers manufacturing defects. All products featured on Headphone Zone are backed by an original manufacturer's warranty.

great service by headphone zone . very much usability for what i have purchased. Thankyou H P Z
Bought this device to help me compare 2 Dacs ( this is pretty straight without any discernible loss in audio fidelity) . Also Used this in reverse mode where I connected same dac to headphone amplifier and an integrated amplifier. In this case there is a perceptible difference in sound .. the highs are slightly tamed.. which maybe a good/bad result based on your chain ) . Only problem is ensuring you have enough short length RCAs to do all this circus..which is probably one of the reasons I am into this hobby and have way too many headphones )
This is a minimalistic product. It does what it is expected to do with just one switch and one Potentiometer (nothing else inside).
It allows me to connect the 4th source to my bigger preamp that has 3 inputs. Does a good job of that.
It does take away some life from the music when you reduce the volume. I use it specifically to tame the harsh & HOT (too loud) digital recordings. It works.
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.
