      Great! Hope someone tells us how they sound. The Freya Tube pre and a pair of these come at such reasonable prices! Makes me forget how much I don't like their company name.

        I did get to use the prototype for a couple days at home and at the LA Audio Show. Pretty impressive amp, especially with the Maggie .7.

          I think products like this help the "newbie" get into audio without spending paychecks on amps. Hats off to Schiit

            It would be great if you could do a review of the amps with the Freya preamp Steve

              If they are willing to send me a review sample I will. I had to return the Freya and prototype Vidar the day after the show ended.

                Those are some good looking pieces of Schiit! I ordered the Freya yesterday to check it out. I have heard good things about preamps using the 6sn7 tube.

                  A pair of Vidars, A Freya and a Yiggy

                  Freya: $699
                  Vidar: $699 (x2 for monoblocks)
                  Yggdrasil: $2299

                  Total: $3697 ($4396 if using mono amps


                  Add a pair of Maggi 1.7i for $2000 or a pair of Fritz Carbon SE's for around $2500 and bingo what a cool system for under $7k

                    I wish my office was that size Id have so many more options , but it serves its purpose as a "office" .With an office that size I think the Pulsars should be pleasant.

                  From experience these worked really well together. For those who do't do DSD the Multibit Bifrost was quite good:

                  Total $2,997.00
                  Tekton Lore $1,000.00
                  Schiit Freya $699.00
                  Schiit Vidar $699.00
                  Schiit Bifrost MB $599.00

                  Total $3,397.00
                  Magneplaner .7 $1,400.00
                  Schiit Freya $699.00
                  Schiit Vidar $699.00
                  Schiit Bifrost MB $599.00

                  Total $4,997.00
                  Tekton Double Impact $3,000.00
                  Schiit Freya $699.00
                  Schiit Vidar $699.00
                  Schiit Bifrost MB $599.00


                  Somebody on Superbestaudiofreinds and Head-Fi just set up the Freya/Vidar/Double Impact system yesterday (don't remember which DAC he has). Waiting to hear his impressions.
