Ideal for Audiophiles

These Amps & DACs are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Amps & DACs like these. You can expect these Amps & DACs to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Amps & DACs is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Amps & DACs deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Volume Controls

If your Amps & DACs have volume controls, you will be able to adjust the volume level with a simple touch of a button without having to reach for your source device. Your music keeps playing without being interrupted or accidentally paused during playback. Having volume controls on Amps & DACs or at least in-line controls on the audio cable may seem unnecessary to some people, but they are, in fact, quite convenient.

ELEVATE TO A NEW PERSPECTIVE OF HOME AUDIO WITH SAGA S DISCRETE SOLID-STATE PREAMPLIFIER

In 2010, Schiit was formed when two seasoned audio industry professionals decided it was time to change the status quo. The two audiophiles are Mike Moffat, formerly of Theta, and Jason Stoddard, formerly of Sumo. They worked together to produce numerous audio and video products. Audiophiles have long favoured Schiit as a source for digital converters, headphone amplifiers, speaker amplifiers, and preamps. When you listen to music, it comes to use without any noise, only because of preamps. Without a preamplifier, it would sound weak and noisy and can sometimes lead to distortion. Electrical waves or signals pass through several phases. Like through the air and start to vibrate or bounce sometimes. The result is a harsh and underwhelming tone resulting in noisy and distorted sound. The experts at Schiit developed the Saga S, a discrete solid-state preamplifier considering these aspects. The Saga S transforms a weak signal into a clean and voluptuous sound.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Saga S

FEATURING A DISCRETE JFET BUFFER STAGE DELIVERING CLEAN AND PRECISE AUDIO

The Solid-State Saga S is a solid-state preamplifier with a discrete JFET (Junction Field Effect Transistor) buffer stage in its circuitry. JFET input stages have comparable bias currents, and JFET devices have much better noise performance. Moreover, JFETs have higher gain (transconductance) than CMOS devices. A discrete JFET does offer a way to achieve high input impedance and low noise with flexible biassing. Saga S provides clean and jitter-free audio reproduction thanks to a dedicated JFET buffer integrated into its circuitry. It brings the subtle nuances in the recording to life. Apart from this, Saga S also boosts the volume level and makes the sound quality better. No colouration is applied while enhancing the sound; instead, the music is as natural as you can perceive. Saga S's flawless circuit architecture makes for a promising performance.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Saga S

EFFICIENT PREAMP WITH PASSIVE OR ACTIVE MODES THAT YOU CAN CONTROL WITH A REMOTE

Saga S gives you all the uber-high-end, no-compromises features you need in a preamp, including relay-switched volume control, a switchable DC-coupled discrete JFET buffer, and a custom remote control. If you want a convenient preamp that you can control with a remote, run the Saga S in passive mode. You can also switch this to active mode if driving long cables is necessary. All you have to do is change it to the discrete, DC-coupled JFET buffer mode. The remote has the same controls as the preamp itself. You’ll find the input selector, volume up & down, output selector and mute buttons. When you use the remote, the motorised potentiometer adjusts to match the remote’s settings.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Saga S

PERFECT CHANNEL MATCHING DELIVERED WITH RELAY-SWITCHED MOTORIZED VOLUME KNOB

The benefits of a relay-switched stepped attenuator for volume are clear. Compared to a potentiometer, they give you perfect channel matching and near-unmeasurable distortion. Using Saga S's volume knob is as simple as grabbing and turning it. And if you use the remote control, the motorised potentiometer changes to match the remote setting. The relay-stepped attenuator is an adequate inclusion to the Schiit Saga S. It provides superior channel matching at the lowest degree of its volume knob; when compared to the potentiometer. The Saga S's front-mounted knob works like a conventional volume knob. When you turn the knob, it stops immediately at the bottom and then at the top. With it, there won't be any encoders spinning endlessly in this place. You will have a simple knob and superior microprocessor control. Saga S offers 64 1dB steps for volume control thanks to its discrete thin-film resistors and relay-switched stepped attenuator.

Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Saga S
Headphone-Zone-Schiit-Saga S

METICULOUSLY DESIGNED AND BUILT IN CALIFORNIA WITH NUMEROUS INPUTS AND OUTPUTS

Saga S's build is smooth yet elegant with high-quality metal housing. Saga S houses one 24VA transformer with regulated +/-18V rails, plus 5VDC for the microprocessor. There are two discrete JFET buffers with DC offset corrections in their circuitry. The Saga S has 5 RCA input pairs selectable via the front remote or switch. For its outputs, it has 2 RCA pairs that are selectable using the front switch or remote. The Saga S is designed and built in California. The vast majority of the total production cost of Saga S—chassis, boards, transformers, and assembly, goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. The PCBs are made in NorCal and the transformers in California. The Saga S is an ally when stacking Schiit DACs. A no-compromise remote-controlled system can be created by stacking Saga S and Bifrost (or any of Schiit DACs).

Schiit Saga S - why you need one

I've waited for a while to get this unit and there are no regrets. This is a description of my experience and other than the fantastic service these guys have provided, I have no affiliation to headphonezone. Right, lets get onto it.

If you're wondering why anybody would want a preamp with no gain, well, there's more to it - what if you had a single set of audio source (Streamer | CD | Blu-ray) and more than one amplifier or two preamps (basically two speaker systems). Here's where the Saga shines. Connect the sources to the Saga and the two pre-outs extend to two separate preamp's or power-amps.

If you're wondering why - direct to power-amps, well, some of them have so much gain a pre-amp is not really required. Sure, the Saga has no tone controls and you lose that ability, but otherwise, being able to connect your signal sources with two separate systems and a single Volume control is priceless.

The Schiit is designed for extending your sources to more than one output and with an output impedance of 75ohms (buffered), you have no signal loss. If you're concerned with sending the signal through additional electronics (J-fet buffered), run it passive. The output impedance goes up a bit but you may not even notice it.

My systems are Altecs, run active and passive with valve amps. The Altecs have highish sensitivity and coupled with Tubelab valve amps don't need a pre-amp. I had two preamps before the Saga S, but running the system without the Pre has been a revelation. Superb definition, with no hum or hiss.

Thanks to the team at headphone zone for following up and keeping me posted. Great stuff.

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.
