Ragnarok is a 100wpc (into 4 ohms) amp and Yggdrasil is a bitperfect dac. Both have balanced XLR outputs.

 

From the preliminary spec sheet:

 

RAGNAROK:
 
"Ragnarok is the world’s first universal amplifier, fully capable of powering everything from ultra-sensitive IEMs to loudspeakers. With 100WPC RMS into 4 ohms, 3 selectable gains, a relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control, and Crossfet™ circlotron-style output topology, Ragnarok befits its name—in Norse legend, Ragnarok was the “end of the world.”
 
Power Output: 100W into 4 ohms, 60W into 8 ohms, 15W into 32 ohms, 9.6W into 50 ohms, 1.6W into 300 ohms, 800mW into 600 ohms
Inputs: 2 balanced, 3 single-ended stereo inputs
Outputs: speaker terminals, 4-pin balanced XLR headphone, TRS unbalanced headphone, balanced and unbalanced preamp outs
Gain: selectable gain of 20, 7, or 1
Volume: (64) 1.25dB steps via relay-switched stepped attenuator
Topology: Fully discrete Crossfet™ circlotron-style stage with no caps in the signal path and no DC servos, all solid state
Management: microprocessor control of quiescent current and DC levels, with monitoring of all fault conditions
Power Supply: 400VA transformer with 4 separate circlotron output rails, over 100,000uF filter capacitance total
Size & Weight: 16 x 12 x 3.875”, 30 lbs
Estimated Price & Availability: $1400-1600, late 2013"
 
 

 

 

No Remote Control? A bit disappointing for me...:(

Yup, no Remote Control XD

 

I have no problems with it, got a remote for my vega which has digital volume control which is lossless up to a point, but I'm using it for my PC, so it's not far ;)

 

Edit: BTW, Ragnarok is not exactly the end of the world per se... Well it is, but right after the world ends a new one is born, based on legend... AFAIK

They probably have a super secret dap project that they're working on or something. And I suspect Mike is planning on infiltrating DSD headquarters to take them down from the inside. Meanwhile, Jason's got his other half dozen companies and careers to run.

I think I got it. Schiit will start tinkering with headphones - one to pair with Magni/Modi/Vali; one to pair with Bifrost/Lyr/Valhalla/Asgard; and two top ends to pair with Gungnir/Mjolnir and the Yggy/Rag. 

Lots of work guys and gals.:biggrin:

My ideas might have been long shots, but at least they could kind of happen. :P Schiit headphones, that sounds more unlikely than the electrostatic amp Jason has said won't happen.

In NASCAR you have to be both, or else you'll crash ;)

Jason doesn't want to take the risk of crashing, and he's got the time, so....

Lol you got half the joke, but missed the other half....NASCAR drivers spend the whole time turning left(as in not right) and going fast :P

Don't tell that to Watkins Glen.

Besides an e-stat amp ( wink.gif ) I would LOVE to see Schiit make some power amps (as in 100+ W)

Yes! I would love a Schiit stack of Gungnir, equivalent pre-amp, and a 2-ch 100w amp...wow that would be freakin awesome.

Anyone had a chance to listen to Ragnarok at the show?
