Excellent review! I'm a big fan of this company and their creations.

 

It appears the module pricing has gone even lower:

  • Multi-bit DAC module, add US$200
  • AK4490 DAC module, add US$100
  • No phono preamp card listed

The black finish is available only sporadically, in limited production runs.

I too am a big fan of this company’s products (the name? Not so much). They give excellent high-end performance without the high-end price tag and they don’t make the audiophile pay for high-end case-work and bling.

@[email protected] : agree great review and have had their products since modi/magni to fulla to sigma delta gungnir @left channel since we have communicated before if you are interested -- I now have my 'last rodeo'/system a Ragarnok 2(just the amp) and Yggdrasil GS(yes a GEB5USB) mated with a pair of Legacy Audio Studio HD monitors(springfield illinois) the amp is one Schiitfull of a headphone amp and the speakers are no slouches either! have ROON/A+3/Qobuz/TIDAL via USB as well as old Harman/Kardon fl8370 HDCD changer via coaxial to the DAC Yamaha c-750 dvd-a/sacd cd via RCA to the amp and ME2 via RCA to the amp and digital optical from my cablebox to the DAC(interchange it for digital optical from Apple gen3 TV). With Sennheiser HD598s and best of all RS-195s so I can have a cigar and Lagavulin on my protected back porch! Like i said that amp is an incredible Schiit of a headphone amp. Am in 'audiophile' heaven.AND both are BLACK beautiful.

Thank you for an enjoyable and articulate review.

This company is simply superb; they have blown the value/performance quotient out of the water.

I use the Loki tone control with my Gilmore Lite Mk 2 and it is fabulous. I do not know how I managed without it previously.

Long may good Schiit sit on the shelves of retailers everywhere...

So the 300 ohm Senns were bypassed because the Asgard has "only" 600 mw available? A few bazillion people own cans (many are true reference) over 150 ohm.

Agreed.  My now sold Magni 3 had 410mW @ 300 Ohm and it ran my HD600s just fine.
