I've decided to split the package apart and sell separately as per pricing below.
- Schiit Freya Pre-amp $950 - Sold
- 2 x Schiit Aegir Class A Continuity Power Amps - $1,100 each or $2,100 for the pair - Sold
- Schiit Gungnir (Gumby) Multi-bit DAC - $1,000
The Freya Pre-amp has a small chip on the top as shown in the photos. You can only see this when standing very close to it.
It’s Your Choice: Passive, JFET Buffer, or Tube Gain
Go ahead. Run Freya in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, you can simply select the JFET buffer stage, or choose the tube gain stage—a serious gain stage running on 300V rails.
128-Step Relay Attenuator
Most preamps—passive or active—use a potentiometer for volume control. Freya uses a sophisticated microprocessor-controlled relay-stepped attenuator for perfect channel matching and zero distortion—and with 128 steps for ultra-precise level control. You can hear it clicking as you turn the volume up and down.
Yes, Remote Control Included
When you’re talking about gear that doesn’t sit on your desktop (like our headphone amps), you need the convenience of remote control for volume, input switching, output switching, and muting. Freya includes a custom remote control, standard.

Continuity™: Benefits Beyond Class A
Aegir is our first Continuity speaker amplifier, extending a technology we introduced with the Lyr 3 headphone amp. Technically, Continuity is a way to eliminate transconductance droop outside of the Class A bias region, and extend the benefits of Class A biasing. It also solves the NPN and PNP device mismatch problem, since it uses both NPN and PNP devices on both rails. It’s still a very hot-running amp, though, with over 10W of Class A standing bias.
A True No-Excuses Design
Like Vidar, Aegir uses an exotic current-feedback topology, as well as a 100% linear power supply (with 7 separate voltage rails and 600VA transformer) and microprocessor oversight to eliminate capacitors and DC servos in the signal path. No Class D, no switching supplies, no fans, no compromises, nothing in the signal path but music—for a three-figure price tag.
Power That Scales
Aegir provides 20W into 8 ohms, doubling to 40W into 4 ohms. Run mono, and you’ll see 80W into 8 ohms. Best of all, Continuity ensures you see Class-A-like performance at all these power outputs.
Convenient Standby Mode
On Aegir, we’ve added a front-panel button to put the amp into Standby mode. This de-biases the output stage completely and reduces standing power consumption significantly. This keeps the rest of the amp up and running, without massive heat output.
Gungnir Multi-bit DAC
Review - https://darko.audio/2016/01/zesty-and-sweet-the-stunning-schiit-gungnir-multibit-dac/
The DAC itself is a hardware-balanced design with two AKM AK4399 32bit D/A converters, followed by a fully discrete, JFET-input stage for current gain and filtering with the same proprietary closed-form DSP-based digital filter as the Yggdrasil, coupled to four Analog Devices AD5781BRUZ digital to analog converters.
