Thanks Jason, you guys know your Schiit!

Quite a few of us are already "amp rolling". My wallet knows I am smily_headphones1.gif

Hehe, gotta love that! DIY First Watt boards, make it much more efficient on the wallet in regards to rolling amps though :tongue:

Thanks for the update, as long as it takes to make it sound good.

Wow - what a beautiful, clean, PCB layout ... almost demands a transparent acrylic top plate ... :smile:

Jason-by 'December' I hope you're aiming for a pre-CHRISTmas delivery? I understand it's all subject to change. That being said-I'll pay today for serial #1. ;) Thanks.

Great news! I'm looking forward to December to hear more, I really hope Ragnarok will be a success! :)

I like that the toobs can be put in later. I may have to get this now.

So, does the modular design mean it would eventually be possible to send the SS version in for a conversion to a hybrid? Or does it mean that most things are in place, and that developing the tube component is all that's left to do, suggesting the hybrid version won't be that far off (as in sooner that developing an amp from the ground up)? Or does it mean both?

Jason said this in the previous page:

 The second photo is the Ragnarok main and control boards with the gain board installed. Since it's modular, we will eventually be able to offer a hybrid version with tube input, though this will require a separate transformer and additional power supply, so it's not exactly plug and play. It also means we could change the gain board over time, though analog moves much, much slower than digital as far as big changes in technology.

Sorry if I'm being daft and the answer is obvious; I just to make sure I understand the implications of the modular design, since I would be much more tempted to buy the SS Ragnorak if I knew that later down the line I could have it converted to the hybrid version. If that's not possible then I'll just wait for the hybrid.

While I can't speak directly for Jason, i can say that "yes" it is my understanding you can either adapt it yourself, or send it in for the modification.

Not being exactly plug and play doesn't lend itself to being 'adapt it yourself' friendly.

I wonder if for future upgrades I would have to send my unit to Schiit (many $$$ for SHllTment :)), or I could simply order the module and mount it by myself.

Yeah, the I didn't think the do it yourself approach was really an option, given that one would need to replace the gain board, transformer, power supply, and presumably the case. Plus it seems like that would void the warranty because somebody like me who has no diy experience would almost undoubtedly break something and mistakenly believe the amp was faulty, and so we would ask Schiit to repair something we broke. But who knows, maybe they have come up with an idiot proof way to adapt the amp by non-diy-ers like me
