I say let's live dangerously. So how do you like the Project Carbon with the 2M Red? I have one on the way right now to replace my Debut iii with USB. I doubt there's much difference between the two tables, but with the carbon I can upgrade the power supply and cartridge if I ever feel the need. The USB cannot be upgraded because of the built-in phono preamp.

I really like the Carbon. It's my first table since the late '70's and I'm very pleased with just how much quality you get for $400.

 

I'm using the phono-stage on my 26 watt Marantz right now and it sounds good. But, I bet running it through a Schiity phono-stage using...say, the Modi chassis would be even better. :smile:

I remember something like "too much of a niche", as headphone amplifiers are already a niche and stats are the niche of the niche. You develop a totally new amplifier for a very small market where consumers often are already willing to spend a lot of money on their audio gear, so why even go for an inexpensive amp that only works with less than 1% of headphones out there.

We have had a proposal from another manufacturer (who shall remain nameless) to do a co-branded stat amp--well, actually one under our name and one under theirs. We may eventually talk some more, but we really have our hands full with our own plans.

So--nothing for a while, if ever.

From a PM I sent a couple years ago. Hopefully it is OK to share.

No!  Same size as Mjolnir and I'll buy it today.

Yes!  Please give us an equivalent value phono pre!  Made in the USA!!

I would seriously love a phono preamp from Schiit. I'm building a new "entry level" vinyl system right now.

+1 on the phono preamp

Another +1 on the phono preamp. I agree with Eee Pee on mjolnir size.

That's too bad... if they were able to produce an exceptional amp at a low cost (like all their other products), I'd bet people would buy it give stats a shot (many people, like me, can't go to meets to try them, so buying a pair is the only option and the prices of 3rd party amps are intimidating). I'd imagine that an affordable system composed of an affordable STAX lambda and a Schiit electrostatic amp would be excellent and quite a bargain.

Ok, ok...I will change my previous vote.  Mojo size, it is.

 

Jason? Any interest at all in doing a phono pre? :smile:

So it would be a Mjonir sized case with the amount of electronics that would fit into a Magni case.

I'm surprised there isn't a phono in the Ragnarok... or is there?
