Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    After reading more posts I definitely agree with your assesment. I haven't been following the thread as closely as others, but after that the class A amp is unlikely.

    The interesting part to me is to know what will be the key differentiation compared to Vidar. For sure it has to be something more radical than "just" a new topology: size factor, Watts, tubes instead of transistors, price, something else? Otherwise, I don't see the point to introduce another power amp when you already have a great one with an also great price tag, except if it's "just" a new topology, but a new one that it's so good that put Vidar to shame when it comes to measurements & sonic performance.

    I don't know if Jason has given us some clues in the past that went over our heads, I try to remember but my mind is totally blank in that regard :D

    EDIT:

    I forgot to add that maybe this will be a desktop amp?, you know... to power small passive speakers. If that's the case, then obviously they aren't introducing a Vidar alternative. In the other hand, self-powered monitors are so common that I don't know how big the market is for a desktop amp.

    Ahh, just some more hours waiting, only to discover -again- how good I'm at failing miserably at predicting the new hot schiit.

    I disagree --looks like they just got back from a millennial wedding reception.

    My vote:

    Dump the tube on the Lyr3 form factor and put a fan in the hole. Then use that added air flow capacity to create a 50w bridged monoblock speaker amplifier or a 25w 2ch amp. Or more watts, I'm ok with moah being better.

    Hey, I can dream big, can't I?

    Guys. It's the SOL. Trust me.

    Amplifier with fan = non-starter for me.

    Why not?

    Noise, both electrical and mechanical.

    That's because it ruins your coiffure.

    In InnerFidelity video, Jason admits they are playing with portables (batteries) and class D . Whoa.

    yes, for example those thousands watts PRO amps running hot... you've a quite passage and the fan kicks in...spoiler big time

    I want a mega-burrito-ized, multi-bit, portable DAP. :L3000:

    Nah, Sol is old news already. They showed it to us in a streamer. People interested in it is just waiting for the "release" date, but it's not a mystery anymore. Per Jason's post, this will be a new WIP product.

    Ah, I see, but it's that just a matter of preference of yours or the noise is easily noticed as a sonic degradation?

    So, Ragnarok (as the event that ends with this world) is just around the corner? What's next, Mike changing his mind about MQA?
