    Unfortunately no.

    I think that's even more heretical to the Schiit philosophy than doing an op-amp, class D amp, or a D/S DAC...

    But Jotunheim is also a preamp. People connect it to power amps and powered speakers.

    You do get 1 XLR out and Two SE outs. Not bad!

    That is three amps you can feed...and possible to split the SE signal for MOAR amps. But at that point you clearly have a problem :wink:

    I know what you mean though... I went from too many amps down to a Hybrid and full tube. So Freya is a perfect fit!

    Keep the tubes and just send him the boxes. Easiest way to make him happy. :laughing:

    For what it's worth, I won't buy a single class D amplification device. Why should I? There are only several thousand such devices on the market. I come to Schiit for better. Give me a Super Aegir in mono.

    Received HEL today, definitely a record shipping time!

    Bad new is, I'm pretty sure it's DOA :frowning2:

    Red LED comes on when you turn the power on and my laptop (Windows 10) acknowledges that a new device has been plugged in, however the only options that show up in the sound settings are the on board sound/mic inputs. (I tried known good USB cables as well, and even on my Linux laptop which never even sees it connect like it does my EITR/Modi MB/Magni3 stack)

    Device manager reports Manufacturer as a Generic USB Audio

    Events under properties reports:
    Device USB\VID_0D8C&PID_5200&MI_00\7&28c2a21b&0&0000 requires further installation.

    When I try to install drivers manually it continually asks me to connect the USB2.0 High-Speed True HD Audio until it states that it does not exist and terminates the installation program.

    Yes, I've e-mailed Schiit, just seeing if anyone here has had a similar issue.

    It probably won't work, but maybe try using a different power supply. I've had 2 die on me this year, one from Schiit (replaced immediately at no cost to me) and one for a Seagate HD. Worth a shot...
  9. yonson
    Exactly! That's what I mainly want to use it for!
  10. yonson
    No Bueno.

    Got a fast response from Schiit (even if it was just a canned response) but I'm double checking everything listed JIC before I respond...

    Please don't share my trade secrets, not good for business, beside I know your address. :ksc75smile:

    My matt-black THINGS arrived. Oh dang... they're purdy. It's a bit unnerving to look into IT and see false air vents. Yes, @Jason Stoddard ... I know, sir.... Bifrost doesn't need convective(?) cooling. And yet... I'd like to see the board!

    It would probably work if it had a tube in it. :relaxed: I know, I know...the volume knob is in the way. Not your fault.

    It's a REALLY nice volume knob too!

    I have to say, the looks of it in person is pretty impressive. It's much bigger than I was expecting, and I LOVE the color combo...
    But it's DOA and is going back for replacement.
