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

    My vote for best $35 cartridge.
    I'm still having trouble believing how good this thing sounds for the price. Very easy recommendation for those on a budget. Carbon Fiber cantilever with a .3 x .7 elliptical.

    An electronics question for the community. It is always recommended to replace capacitors in really old equipment. Do the capacitors in ICs have similar lifespans?

    Electrolytic capacitors, yes. Film caps or those in ICs are fine.

    Anyone else notice the new Head-Fi Canjam 2019 NYC video shows the Ragnarok 2 (around 31:30)

    A Ragnarok with a DAC and remote control. Who would have thunk it??

    Alas still only 100W at 4 Ohms.

    You mean this one?

    Yes, there will be a fully functional Ragnarok 2 first article at the show, with phono preamp and Multibit DAC cards.

    Probably no chapter on this next week, but I'll talk about it prior to release. This one was the one I had to throw out a completed version (down to cosmetic metal) to develop the right product, so it's a long story...

    Anyone want a great deal on Rag 1?

    I assume after the show, samples will be on display at the Schiitr??

    I hope so, but no guarantees.

    A mini-FAQ for Ragnarok vs Ragnarok 2, for those who own, or are considering owning, a Ragnarok:

    1. We have a few Ragnaroks left in black. They'll be marked down to $1499 today. If you want one, get it now. No, you can't return it for a 2 when it comes out. Sorry.

    2. If you bought a Ragnarok in the last month and want to return it, contact us. Now. Don't wait, you can't keep it until the 2 comes out, sorry.

    3. If you're trying to decide which to get, here's something to consider: Ragnarok 2 is now much more an integrated amp, rather than a headphone amp. It's physically larger than the old Ragnarok (deeper). It has big heatsinks so it can drive difficult speaker loads. It will not be your first choice for IEMs, because it's probably going to be noisy with some of them (though it will be fine with full-size headphones.) Them's the breaks; I would advise you to think long and hard about the wisdom of using custom IEMs with a 32-pound amp that runs its entire output through the balanced jack, and 1/2 the voltage output (so 1/4 the power) through the single-ended jack, neither with any resistors/pads/cheats. On the other hand, the SE output is now not summed, as in the old Ragnarok, so it's much more capable than the old one.

    Hopefully this helps a bit.

    Hey Jason, I went to look at the Ragnarok and the only color option there right now is black. Should there be the silver option listed as well?

    Aegir or Rag 2 for high efficiency speakers? Which sounds better?

    I am hoping Aegir will be adequate for my Salk Song 3's which are 88db sensitivity.

    Interesting. I asked about a Rag v2 in Summer 2018 while the Rag v1 was backordered.

    I really like my Rag, but I likely would have waited for v2 for two features that I'd like in my setup:
    - remote
    - speaker/headphone indicator switch/lights
