My Jot 2 came in today! Sounds great, and I love being able to turn off the signal going to my subs/monitors! Listening with LCD-X.

Nice!! When did you order it btw? Also as an aside, which monitors/sub do you use as I'm looking to also have this set up and did you have to connect your DAC to the subwoofer first and then the outputs back to the Jot 2 and then the preouts to the monitors?

I ordered mine on 1/2. My monitors aren’t anything real high end, but work fine. Behringer sub and Alesis monitors. No, the signal goes DAC (BF2) to Jot 2, to Sub, to monitors. The Jot is your preamp to control volume and the sub crosses over the signal and lows go to sub and the mids/highs go on to the monitors. Hope that helps.

Hey man, did you get the Magnius? I reached out to Schiit today on the status of my Jotunheim that I placed an order on 1/6th. They told me I have to wait another 7 to 10 days. So I guess on the website, if it says In Stock Ship 7 to 10 days, its really means ship 14 to 25 days?
Nope. I cancelled and bought a used Jot 1 and will wait til things chill out.

I ordered the Jot on 1/6, and although I ordered them on separate days, the Jot 2 and my balanced HD 650 cable both came in today!

My XLR jumpers are still on the way, so I'm still running SE from the Bifrost 2, but the Jot 2 is supposed to sound great from either the SE or Balanced inputs, and great is how it sounds!

Much better soundstage than the Asgard 3 with the HD 6xx, great bass and so much detail! After trying the HD800S, Lyr 3, etc this actually feels like the endgame setup.(!)

Hello guys, I interested to buy a desktop Amp and I m thinking a lot the Jot 2.
My current set up is the ifi micro idsd signature with the Focal clear and the Senn HD 660s.
I m planning to bought the Hifiman Arya the other month and I want to ask if someone has the Jot 2 testing with clear and Arya's..?? The only problem for me I think is that I m leaving in Europe (Greece) and the price for the Jot 2 included vat,customs fees and other taxes is about 600€.

I m listening most Tidal music from my smartphone feeds the ifi and from my Pioneer N70AE streamer dac feeding balanced a small tube Amp Loxjie p20.
so this is my dac for the Jot 2.
Thanks in advance for your help.

καλή μέρα pankar0,
I am using Jot2 with Arya and must say I am very impressed. The first few days the amplifier was quite rough at treble but thereafter very smooth and detailed at the same time. The depth of the soundstage and instrument localization was impressive too (comparing to Topping A90 and Questyle CMA 12). It seems that Jot2 compliments all the strong points Arya already has. Also, there is plenty of power (and current) on tap even from SE out.

I can tell you that I have the Jot 2/Bifrost 2 stack and it sounds great with My Arya's. I do not have the Clears but I do have the Elex and this setup complements the Elex very well. The Jot 2 is a great amp with great dynamics/bass and overall great sound which is a natural pairing with the Elex. I also do not have the HD660's but I do have the HD600's, and again, this amp pairs with those great as well.

Lots of cool stuff on this pic. Two I like are GeekVape Aegis and those floorstander sepakers I can't identify. What are they :) ?
