It is their flagship model afterall-I would assume there's more to it than MOAR POWER and speaker taps...

I think that's all it really is IMO, we'll have to wait for Jason for confirmation i suppose.

Yup. Ultimately, we're all speculating until we get more information directly from Jason.

 

But while we're at it, I heard it'll have a full barista feature built into the side.

I understand not asking too many questions when answer can only be based on speculation. But can someone with more knowledge about amp topology perhaps answer; is it possible that the Ragnarok will be at any sort of disadvantage from having an SE out? Might it be "less balanced" due to it?

If thats all I might as well grab a Mjolnir for my LCD-3s then.  I don't need speaker taps or more power.  Lets hope there's more to it than just that and a new pot.

Mjo/Gung sound pretty darned good with LCD3. Migration to Stax SR009? Thinking Blue Hawaii/PWD or similar...

You mean new volume pot? What's wrong with the current one?

Poor tracking at low db.

Excuse my noobness, does tracking mean difference between channels?

Yeah, there's a noticeable difference with one channel being louder than the other at low listening levels.

Since there's a plethora of people asking questions concerning this gear I have my own. Earlier in the thread someone said that Schiit would also be releasing a tube version of the Ragnaarok. That's news to me, can anyone confirm this?

post #480 of 3094
The tube version is old news. Look up the Schiit amp thread started by HeroKid. Jason's statements are summarised in the first post, although at that time it had not been named.
