The Schiit Ragnarok 2 is designed to offer top-notch performance with most speakers and headphones thanks to its selectable gains of 1, 8 and 25. It gives 60W into 8ohms and 100W into 4 ohms. Experience its full power capacity with a balanced headphone jack (34W into 32 ohms). It delivers quarter-power output with single-ended headphone jacks (6W into 32 ohms).
The Schiit Ragnarok 2 comes with two module slots for enhanced flexibility and upgradability. You get to pick between 'just an amp' that has two RCA input modules which sum up to two balanced inputs and three RCA inputs or the 'fully loaded module' which comprises of two balanced inputs, three RCA inputs, one RCA phono input & one USB DAC input.
The Ragnarok 2 has a relay-switch for clear volume and to offer perfect channel matching along with low distortion. It has a volume knob for added efficiency. In the remote control mode, the potentiometer adheres to the remote setting. It uses a unique Nexus gain stage which is designed to seamlessly connect the single-ended and balanced sources. It converts both outputs into a single and discrete gain stage to deliver good performance across all modes.

Schiit Ragnarok 2
Ragnarok is, in Norse mythology, the Twilight of the Gods. There are gods that survive beyond Ragnarok, so it’s clearly not the end of the world. Or worlds. More reading and less Marvel movies is our prescription for understanding this better.
Oh holy moly, it is so completely different it would be easier to list what’s the same. Which, er, is pretty much nothing. Well, except the name. And the fact it’ll drive headphones and speakers. And that’s about it. As far as what’s different:
1. Ragnarok 2 debuts our all-new Nexus™ differential topology, which provides one discrete gain stage for all I/O—balanced and single-ended, headphones and speakers.
2. Ragnarok 2 is modular—it has two input module spaces that can be filled with RCA inputs, or with an MM phono preamp and Multibit DAC module.
3. Ragnarok 2 has a remote control. Yes. Finally.
4. Ragnarok 2 has an all-new thermal design with external heatsinks—which means it runs monumentally cooler than the original.
5. Ragnarok 2’s relay-stepped attenuator has 128 steps, 2x more than the original.
6. Ragnarok 2 has an all-new, modular chassis design that reduces chassis cost and labor cost—which means it costs less than the model it replaces. Yes. Less. At least as Just An Amp (which is all Ragnarok was). Don’t pass out. We’ve done this before. Yes, we’re weird.
7. Ragnarok 2 now allows you to select speaker and headphone outputs with visual feedback as to which mode you’re in, both from the front panel and from the remote.
Sorry, guys, to keep this one simple, we're only offering it as Just An Amp (with two RCA inputs) or Fully Loaded (with MM phono and Multibit DAC module).
Ragnarok 2 is, much more than the original Ragnarok, a true integrated amp. It’s perfectly suited as an all-in-one, do-everything, single-box product for your headphones and speakers. However, if we had to call this one, it’s more a speaker amp than a headphone amp. I mean, what headphone amp is rated at 24 watts RMS into 32 ohms? Come on. this ain't an intelligent idea for your IEMs.
Ah, no. Ragnarok is a fully differential amplifier—that is, both sets of speaker terminals are active. And its Nexus topology is completely different than Vidar. Also, Vidar is in a box.
Yep. So does Aegir. It’s called “manufacturing efficiency.” It doesn’t mean they’re the same inside.
Nexus is what we’ve been referring to as the “holy grail gain stage” internally, during development. Now, maybe we’re a little too much into Monty Python, or maybe we’re a bit touched in the head. But it took a long time to come up with Nexus, which is a current-feedback stage with nested differential amplification and has the following interesting qualities for a discrete design:
1. It does not exhibit the N/N+1 gain relationship when fed a single-ended signal, so it seamlessly converts single-ended to balanced.
2. It also converts balanced to single-ended.
3. It also is quite happy to amplify, differentially, a differential signal for differential output.
4. It does this without summers, buffers, or any other tricks; it is a single discrete differential stage,
As far as we can tell. Of course, we don’t know everything, nor are we perfect.
We think good for you! People should keep their gear longer. However, your receiver has little in common with Ragnarok 2—the headphone outputs may be run from a resistor divider, or may be a separate low-power op-amp circuit. Ragnarok 2 uses the same balanced output stage for both speakers and headphones—there is no difference.
Maybe nothing. If you’re already happy with what you have, why not simply enjoy it? However, some of the same caveats above apply…most integrated amps don’t run full power to the headphone outs, and even if they have a DAC and phono stage, they’re not modular and upgradable for the future. Ragnarok 2 is.
Sure, no problem. You can even select which ones you want to listen to with the remote.
It’s a volume control. Unlike continuous, potentiometer-based volume controls, it uses relays to switch in and out a set of precision resistors based on the volume setting on the front panel. The result is perfect channel tracking down to very low levels, with 128 steps of 0.625dB available at each gain level—much more than most stepped attenuators. Note that our attenuator also works just like a regular potentiometer—there are no continually-spinning encoders, but an actual knob with stops at the low end and high end of the gain.
For most headphones, this is technically a Class A amp. It runs about 1W of Class A bias. For speakers, that translates to Class AB operation.
Ah, right. Gotcha. Unfortunately, we are not qualified to dispense psychoactive medications nor consult in matters of psychology. Nor do our products come with a psychologist, either standard or as an option. The shipping is brutal, and the psychologists don’t like it too much.
Cool. Please do. Remind them we make cheap gear, maybe they need presents for their less-fortunate relatives.
You can get around town just as well in a 10-year-old Civic as a Corvette or Porsche.
You can rail against people buying expensive cars all you want, you can show them all the charts and graphs that they won’t get there any faster in their Corvette or Porsche or Mercedes or Bentley or what-have-you, you can regurgitate all the Consumer Reports stuff you want showing how high-end cars just cost a lot more money to buy and repair and maintain and insure and that in the end, they don’t do a damn thing for the owner’s ego or attractiveness to the opposite sex. And you know what? They’ll still want the Corvette, Mercedes, Porsche, whatever. Same with audio. Bottom line, there’s great stuff available very inexpensively, and there are options that cost a lot more.
You wouldn’t anyway.

2) For a laptop, you can directly play with the USB out
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.
