- Significantly Improved Performance
Schitt took what it learned while making their high end Mjolnir to significantly improve Asgard 2’s performance. A high-voltage, cascoded JFET gain stage feeds a high-current Class A MOSFET output section. The 80V rails on the gain stage allows reduction in distortion, while retaining Asgard’s no-overall-feedback design in high-gain mode.
Works with IEMs to Orthos to Active Monitors
The Asgard 2 offers two gain settings. The low-gain mode is great for high-sensitivity IEMs, while the high-gain mode is perfect for most other headphones, up to and including many orthodynamics. In addition, you can connect the preamp outputs to powered speakers, for a complete desktop system.
Made in USA
The vast majority of the total production cost of Asgard 2—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to American companies manufacturing in the US. Making Schiit's Asgard 2 truly 'Made in USA'.
Highly Resolved Audio Character
The Asgard’s general character is highly resolved, grainless, fast, microdynamically responsive, that is well controlled in the bass but not fat or maximally profound, direct, well separated, capable of fine incision power and bite.

" Long story short on the early impressions: the Asgard is, to my ears, much more than $249.00 worth of amp, in terms of sound quality and versatility."
" The original amp sounded great with full-size headphones, but didn't work so well with in-ear headphones, mostly because they usually have higher sensitivity and the old Asgard's background noise/hiss was audible. The Asgard 2 has no such problem; I used it with my Ultimate Ears and JH-Audio in-ear headphones and the amp was dead quiet."
