Hi Jason ,

Waiting eagerly for Rag 2. Would it improve the sound a lot over Rag 1? And when is the date?

Thanks
LOL. We're not so good on the audio fellatio, nor on dates. It will sound better to some people and worse to others. It will ship when it will ship. Those are the most honest answers you will find.

From the schiit side are we encouraged/discouraged from buying both a Vidar and an Aegir, then returning the one we didn't like as much? I realize this may be hard for a smaller company to deal with, thus the question....
LOL, if you want to order and pay shipping both ways on a couple of very heavy amplifiers, plus a 5% restock, sure, no problem, we can handle that easily.

Like this beast?

I'm kinda afraid of designing anything this big for Schiit, because hauling these guys around all day wasn't a ton of fun.

oooooh, I see Sol plinths. So very excited for Sol. Any chance Mike will be dropping an update on Sol project, any future accessories that are being considered, any early measurement numbers, any feedback from early reviewers, etc?

Vidar vs. Aegir is sort of like Cake vs. Ice Cream. The answer is "Yes, please."
Makes you greedy isn’t it...i ve to wait for Schiit Europe in the Netherlands for the Aegir; so first an ice cream before it melts

40Hz spec or in room? How big is your room?
It's just a general target. The room is...... a bit of a challenge. There is a half wall behind the desk, so acoustically the speaker either will or will not be seeing the entire room depending on whether they are sealed or ported. It has actually turned out to be very beneficial for getting away from comb filtering and side wall reflections, but when it comes to bass there are challenges.

If your room is not too big try the ATCs SCM19 not very sensitive but an easy load, you shall experience a beautiful low end. Similar size cabinet as the one you have an eye on. Smaller conus but in a sealed box, my gut sayd it works well with Aegir but perhaps two works even better...choices, choices. Ain’t it wonderfull. Just to throw in some amplification competition: the Job225 from Jobsystems(Goldmund)
