From what I can tell, these pieces of Schiit (do you know how long I've waited to say that , in the 'proper' context?) are low parts count devices.
This is a 'trick' that they use quite masterfully.
And which we as owners, appreciate all the more.
That doesn't mean they are unsophisticated, no, no, not by a LONG shot.
I have the Mojo amp and it is wonderful.
It is also a VERY 'simple' design if you've ever studied the basic design layout.
The parts count, for the amplifier circuit itself is very low, especially considering any other balanced circuit design.
And from what I can tell the rest of their designs follow this same design philosophy (even if they don't show pictures of the 'underside' of the circuit boards ).
This means (as was pointed out previously) they focus their design prowess onto tweaking the operating parameters to achieve maximum performance (90volt rails for an 8w output?!). And from the owners manual;
Volume Knob. Turn it to the right to make the music louder. Stop before smoke comes out of your cans. Seriously.
And they seem to be able to achieve these sorts of remarkable results time and time again.
And nothing I'm bringing up here is new. In fact 'they' have already told us all of this before, just not quite in this way…
And I know I'm not the only one, patiently waiting for their next salvo, due out 'soon'.
