Seems Broskie liked it too
The best audio bargain was truly inexpensive, at only $119. First let me say that I love everything about Schiit—their products, their prices, their sonics, everything but their name. "Aurous" would far more suitable. But Jason Stoddard and Mike Moffat are far too ironic to ever adopt such a name. A pity really, as many will overlook Schiit's amazingly fine and amazingly sanely-priced products. Well, it's their loss. In the Can Jam room of the RMAF, where headphones and headphone amplifiers are found, Schiit displayed at their booth a new hybrid headphone amplifier that used a pencil tube as its input stage and a solid-state buffer output stage. Apparently, this little wonder is so new that it hasn't shown up on their web page yet. It looks much like their Magni headphone amplifier and it sounds fabulous, with a jaunty, buoyant, and lively sound. Even if you already own a $2,000 headphone amplifier, this little gem is worth buying. Place it on your computer desk or next to your bed and live a happier life.
