New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil - Page 58

Name the pre-amp "Shiit Haute", otherwise known as "Haute Schiit"

The Ragnarok isn't just a power amplifier though, it's an integrated amp. So requesting a remote seems perfectly reasonable to me. Plenty of people on speaker forums use integrated amps guys

A Schiit phono stage, now that could be pretty nice. Give it XLR-outs and the fanboys will go crazy :tongue_smile: Could call it the Super Schiit LP Destroyer 2000.

The whole reason Schiit is behind on Rag is because of the late additions of a barfy display and volume control with bit truncation. 

 

Anymore request guys?

I yearn for Classic Rag before Rag is even released.... Something wrong with that....

Exactly-this is hardly going for 'power amp' status imo. I'd think it's still selling as an uber headphone amp, with the 'drives speakers' really intended for the HE6 crowd that would otherwise scoff at it. That said-I fully plan on using it with speakers since the function is there-but it's my last reason for buying it at the same time. An optional remote would be nice-a la the AGD Master series headamps. Actually most of those include one, either a cheapo or a nicer aluminum one, sometimes at a small, added cost...

Well, I for one am curious, why didn't they go with SMD for the summer? It's currently taking up alot of space and some parts aren't exactly very precise/reliable under hot conditions with little airflow being under the gain card. Call me OCD or whatever, but it seems to be an area of potential trouble.

No one said it is a power amplifier but it sure isn't a typical integrated amp. Not at all. I'm not saying I wouldn't mind a remote, I'm saying it is not needed.

That's how it should be anyway. Remote function has no business in what essentially is a power amplifier. (IMO)

Essentially a power amp is not the same thing as a power amp.

 

Anyways you totally missed my point, which is not worth arguing over semantics.

How sad. We humans have been working with metals now for how many millennia? But I know exactly what you're going through. Good luck, Jason!

Lol ok then. Careful though-some here might claim you need to calm down. ;) It's all good.

You guys appear to be missing Greed's point which is that this is essentially a power amplifier, sure isn't a typical integrated amplifier, is definitely a headphone amplifier and possibly a pre-amplifier ... which can also drive speakers.  As one of these things, or none of these things, it clearly doesn't need a remote control ... there, have I cleared things up a little ??  :deadhorse:
