    back in the early '90s I had the last of the Ford Taurus SHO's-considered it the American BMW 6 speed leather great sound system -I even put in a Pioneer 6 disc changer in the trunk and would go zero to 70+mph in 3rd gear never crossed the red line!!

    My first car was an 88 Taurus. It had exactly zero of the qualities you are reminiscing about..... I won't waste time elaborating on all of the Ls that car had.

    Yep, I thought I covered this before. The Freya+ and Saga+ are staying. The Freya S and Saga S will be sold until we run out of them.

    Yes, we use an API from a third party to calculate shipping rates. The rates vary. Especially around this time of year. We have no control over the rates.

    We should be able to bring these back soon. Maybe. We'll see.

    I guess you'd get an old Saga. We found a few more of them, I guess. Best to ask orders@schiit.com.

    Yep, Tyler decided to send them some gear. I'm fine with it, we send gear to pretty much every reviewer.

    There aren't any belt slippage issues anymore that I know about. We are getting ready to re-launch soon.

    @Rensek sorry to hear that--I'll go one better in the early '70s I bought my wife an MGC(with austin healey 3000 engine AND a borg warner AUTOMATIC! transmission only one of 9 imported to USA) had lucas electronics(the Prince of Darkness) and paper oil filters(she only let me drive it once to work on the Garden State Parkway did it ever swerve with that heavy engine) and someone stole just one of those tall tail lights cost 70$ to replace at rally motors in upper montclair (that was a fortune in 1976)

    Excellent! The original Saga is excellent and the tube goodness (and tube rolling fun) that it delivers will live on as Saga+.

    A return to profitably priced LISST's to pacify the "I am curious "S" crowd? Probably not but...why not outsource the manufacturing of them as Schiit does with their vacuum tubes.

    I am very happy I grabbed a LISST when I bought my original saga. Great to have in and avoid tubes being used when doing casual listening, or breaking speakers in, or when you want to leave the gear on all day.

    I’ve got the original Saga in my tv-setup. LISST-tube is a must-have.

    @Jason Stoddard In previous chapters of your "book" you mentioned that Freya S uses transistors that are match/graded then re-reeled for installation onto the PCB. Are matched parts stocked for future warranty repairs, or will it be supported via spare complete PCB's? In other words, if a Freya S breaks down maybe 8 years from now, will I be able to get it repaired?
  10. Jason Stoddard
    Easily. It uses the same parts we use in Ragnarok and Jotunheim R.

    The LISST was discontinued before I managed to buy one so my Saga only gets to use tubey tubes.

    I would like to be a reviewer too (but only for Yggy, Mjolnir, Freya, 2x Aegir, etc.) :))
