Lol maybe in comparison to other amps you've had...get a First Watt F1...then you will know heat. You can't even touch it but for a moment lest you hurt yourself

I think if I ever make it to a big meet somewhere, I'm going to build an amp with an actual space heater on top and show off my class-A mojo by making s'mores for everyone while listening to music.

I actually got a really good laugh from this. xD Well done, my friend.

I wanted to get one, but where, they are no longer sold

Your going to go searching for one, if they are no longer produced.

If the BHSE/007/009 combo is a considerable amount better - I will be sell mine.  Although, I would really hate the let it go.

@Jason Stoddard

 

one question related to the ragnarok.

if i get the amp, i plan on using it with my matrix x-sabre.

the xlr out of this dac is rated at 6.8V. i keep reading it's hot. is this a problem for the rag?

 

thanks!

Man I can't wait for the RAGNAROK to be released

 

Schiit, you better not **** this up. I have high hopes that this receiver will compete with the big boys like Marantz, McIntosh, Denon etc

 

It will be the ultimate ******* receiver

 

high-quality audiophile sound

rock-solid construction and durability

breath-taking simplistic aesthetics

I only browse this thread occasionally but didn't realize this was a receiver. Are you indicating they are putting a tuner in the amp? Also you shouldn't be grouping Denon and Marantz with McIntosh because they are not equals.

Maybe I misspoke, there isn't going to be a tuner integrated into the Ragnarok from what I understand. I should have said amplifier.

 

And I grouped Denon, McIntosh, and Marantz because they all make some of the best amplifiers and receivers. Especially vintage Marantz receivers/amps. Don't know about the new ones though

I hope the Ragnarok will be nothing like the offerings from Marantz, Denon and even McIntosh. I hope it will be better, better like how a bottle of scotch is better than a bicycle. . .

I hope it will be better also, but I also somewhat doubt it. A company like Marantz, founded in '53, has been making quality stereo receivers and amps well before Schiit was even though of. Not saying it's impossible, but it's going to be hard to compete with somebody like that.

 

It's like a brand-new manufacturer of mics trying to compete with Shure

I do not think you understood my point. Schiit is not competing with Marantz.

I realize that Schiit is not competing with Marantz, but Schiit seems to be up there with them and that's why I was comparing Schiit to Marantz. I was just imagining in my head if the new Schiit amp is going to compete with the vintage Marantz receivers/amps.
