New Preamps from Schiit!

The Freya+ has the feature I wish my old Freya had: the tubes turn off when not in use, so you don't wear them out every time the amp is turned on, even if you aren't using them. 


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS >SOtM Lan Isolator>Bricasti M5 Network Player >Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

I will probably sell my Freya for a Freya 2. 

 

They def. addressed some of my want list, which is disengaging the tubes when not in use, and they now ship with Tung Sol tubes, which is what I upgraded to. The Chinese made stock tubes they shipped with were utter junk. 

 

The $100 price increase seems very fair.

 

The only thing I find perturbing is this "thunder dome" concept..why would some one risk buying a product that may be no

longer in the line sooner than later...
