    They list the price twice as high as it is. Maybe they believed that $99 was a typo? EDIT: Or thatt's the exchange rate? Wow.

    Exchange rate plus 50 percent, here it's exchange rate plus 60 percent (but including tax and delivery); that's based on the Schiit site price, which I don't think includes taxes as USA seems to have different taxes by state, city etc.

    My guess of the listed price is taken from one of Schiit's distributor in Singapore - SLT Technologies Pte Ltd. They list on Lazada locally @ $199. http://www.schiit.com/places/distributors

    I do get minuscule savings ordering direct from the US, e.g. Loki Mini. Of course i hope the Schiit product doesn't break down, shipping will cost quite a lot for heftier weighty Schiit builds like the Yggy.

    Jason, since you asked I'm gonna take the liberty to suggest, that you guys make an integrated amplifier with power amp input, and obviously make the input remote selectable. Just to give you an idea I modified picture of Ragnarok:

    I think this would satisfy people with needs to connect AV receiver to stereo set up. And I think it would be very interesting to see 'no compromises integrated amplifier' from Schiit. In your product line up there is only one integrated, and it has no remote function, so maybe it would be a good idea to make a new one with more functions.

    Just a quick note: I'll be starting the end of the year wrap later this week, or maybe next. I'm dividing it into three parts, since (a) a lot has been going on behind the scenes) and (b) I'm kinda lazy, so breaking it up makes it look like I did more work. So, you'll soon have end-of-2017 chapters on What We Did Right, What We Did Wrong, and Where We're Going.

    Ah, be sure to include a picture of the whole team in the last chapter.
    Would be fun to see faces behind the names yes?

    Flashing back to The Firesign Theater; "Everything You Know is Wrong." Bet Jason knows that record.

    And if you get a breather in 2018, please revisit the idea of a Loki Maxi. You would get the balanced in/out crowd. (And they can spend more, so you can move up in case size.) My wish is for eight frequency adjustments. Ideally, separate for each channel. Yes, sixteen knobs (a new Schiit record.) And a balance control, since you won't put one on the Rag or Freya.

    In the meantime, stay safe and have a Merry Christmas.

    Contacted the distributor and sent the Freya and both Vidar's.
    Only answer on return: everything works fine.
    No further explanation, no measurement reports, no explanation th Vidar's went into clipping on 2V input. NOTHING.
    Very disappointing result for all the effort and cost of shipping I put into it.
