    I recently bought the Jotunheim with the balanced dac module, however, the entire amp section is dead. Only the dac works.
    Could someone within Europe tell me what power supply their jot shipped with? I have a feeling ive been sent the wrong one by schiit-europe

    My Jotunheim has it's voltage rating indicated on the serial number tag on the back of the unit. It does not use a separate power supply just the appropriate power cord for your country's power outlet.
     
  3. CSkloma
    Ah yes, I meant the powercord. I now checked and what's written on the cord does not match with what's written on the jot itself

    Hey @CSkloma
    Does your Jot have the 230V sticker?
    If not it is the wrong version...since you could plug in your cable has a schuko plug, wright? Are the two orange lights on? Did you double check you selected the correct input?
     
  5. CSkloma
    Yeah, it has the 230V sticker, and yes. The two orange lights are also on, and i have tried all inputs, the only one that works is the dac one. I have tried using different cables as well but with the same result, also tried hooking it up to my laptop and it was the same thing.
    In balanced i get barely audible sound if i turn it all the way up, and in SE its just hissing noise if i turn the volume up

    Hmm that sounds like your unit is not working. Probably best to get in contact with Schiit Europe then

    First time posting in this thread, just got my Jotunheim today.

    Having owned Lyr 2 and Valhalla 2, I always found the volume notch a bit hard to see.

    If anyone wants a make their volume indicator more visible, grab a hole-punch, electrical tape and a sewing needle:

    There'd be no point. It's a low-voltage, high-current design. You can turn off the SR1a stepped-baffle-compensation (2nd switch), but it still isn't suitable for conventional headphones (that's why the XLR connector has its gender inverted).

    I'm not sure why you'd want to try and use this with regular headphones. That's what the normal Jotunheim is for ...
