Schiit Valhalla

Schiit Valhalla

“ I had been looking for an amplifier for my Sennheiser HD650 headphones and tried many amps that cost much more than the Valhalla over the last 6 or so years. It's almost like they designed this amplifier to bring out the best of this particular headphone. If you are also a 650 owner and have always thought that they are a bit "veiled" in the mids/highs, and like me have done the mods (foam,...” --HiFi1972

Schiit Asgard Headphone Amplifier

Schiit Asgard Headphone Amplifier

“I've been reading so many replies and reviews how the O2, Magni and Vali sound the same. After weeks of listening to all of them, (yes I have them all) they are all not exactly the same . I've been using the same music and all else in the system is the same and have only changed the amps. Started with O2, then went to Magni. Yes the Magni and O2 sound very close. The Magni...” --Hi-Fi'er

Schiit Asgard 2

“ I'm going to keep this review brief and to the point. This amp is freakin' awesome for $250 and it has a high/low gain meaning it's capable with almost any type of headphone you can throw at it besides orthos. I use it with my DT880s and they sound way more fun and not boring like they used to. So ya, just buy this amp. There is no transformer hum and the noise floor is very low. So disregard...” --wahsmoh

“Schiit Magni Review   -please contact me for a one millimeter version of this review downloadable onto a microdot that can be smuggled and hidden from even the most prying eyes.   Intro:   As a free-thinking maverick who bucks trends and rides bulls, I have really never been one of the multitude of Schiit fans.  Ever since the first Asgard was hyped to high...” --Radio_head

Schiit Lyr

Schiit Lyr

“ I got this amp along with the HE-500s to jump into the audiophile scene. My first impressions are that this amp is made with care. It is a solid piece of equipment that is classy looking with no frills. It really drives the HE-500s well. I haven't had too much time to spend with them yet, but whenever I do have some time, sitting down with this combo is really a joy. It is noisy with my Denon...” --bob81pizza

Schiit Mjolnir 2

Schiit Mjolnir 2

“This is one of the only (if not the only) balanced hybrid amps available on the market that allows you to swap between tubes and full solid state (full solid state is achieved via Schiit's new LISST solid state tubes).   It offers plenty of power to drive virtually any headphone yet is also quiet enough for in-ear monitors! It has both balanced ins and outs as well as preamp outs so it's...” --Mediahound

Schiit Lyr 2

Schiit Lyr 2

“Before the Lyr 2 I owned two hybrid headphone amplifiers: the Hifiman EF2A, and the Maverick Audio A1. What both those entry level amplifiers lacked was the power and sonic dynamics to drive my mid-level headphones to their true potential. They were either too aggressive, or too soft and lush sounding. But due to my variety of both high impedance and low impedance headphones, I wanted to...” --bpandbass

Emotiva mini-X a-100

“This review is based on matching the Mini X with Hifiman He-500 Headphones.     You may be reading this review, unsure what to make of this Amp, asking how can a cheap sub $200 amp offer the power needed for an expensive Headphone such as the Hifiman He-500?  If you have done your homework you will find this is the stereo amp everybody is...” --fluidz

Schiit Magni 2

Schiit Magni 2

“ Got one of these for a downstairs/bedroom system I'm trying to put together for peanuts. For your money, you get a very well made little steel box, crinkle finished, painted silver. You can see thru the vents to the single red circuit board with all surface mount devices, robotically soldered, each component precisely labeled, neat as a pin...nice! You turn it on, the relay clicks on...” --Willy 2 Streams
