Product : Asgard 2

Schiit Asgard 2 one of the most popular headphone amps in the world!

The Schiit Asgard 2 is the next generation of one of the most popular headphone amps in the world, boasting higher performance and convenience features such as switchable gain and preamp outputs. It's a versatile control center for your desktop system, ideal for most headphones from IEMs to orthos, and with pre outs for powered desktop speakers. 

Significantly Improved Performance

Schiit used what they have learned in Mjolnir to significantly improve Asgard 2s performance. A high-voltage, cascoded JFET gain stage feeds a high-current Class A MOSFET output section. The 80V rails on the gain stage allows to reduce distortions, while retaining Asgard's no-overall-feedback design. Well, except in the gain of 1 mode, which does use feedback but also allows us to lower the noise floor for sensitive IEMs.

Additional Versatility: From IEMs to Orthos to Active Monitors

Schiit's Asgard 2 offers two gain settings. The gain of 1.5 is perfect for high-sensitivity IEMs, while the gain of 6 is ideal for most other headphones, up to and including many orthodynamics. In addition, the preamp outputs can easily be connected to powered speakers, for a complete desktop system.

Schiit Asgard 2 is covered by a limited UK warranty that covers parts and labour for three years. That's 3 years. Yes Three. Compare that to the competition. Please note this doesn't mean free upgrades!
