    Hi all.

    Long time reader of the forum, but only signed up today. Lots of detailed information on schiit products here, took my quite some hours to get through all. Still having some questions about an upgrade path into the schiit zone.

    2 months ago i bought 2 Wharfedale Linton Heritage speakers. Awesome looks, awesome laidback sound!
    I have them combined with an audiolab 6000a integrated, for source i have an audiolab 6000n playfi streamer and a thorens 145mkii turntable (play same amount of analog as digital music).
    All in all I'm not unhappy with the set, but i miss some shazam, dynamics and tight bass. The total sound is somewhat to lazy, i suspect because of laidback sound of speakers and amp combined. I know, i can't describe it better than this ....

    To spice things up a little i want to go get me some schiit. And that's where it gets confusing for me, to decide which amps go best with my speakers.
    I'm leaning between
    • A Freya+ with a Vidar
    • A Ragnarok 2
    Although i know all answers will be quite subjective to taste, some input would still be highly appreciated.
    • 1 Vidar in stereo will be more then enough?
    • What setup will color best with my speakers? This is the main question ofcos!
    • When i order the Ragnarok 2 with the added dac and phono inputs, what quality schiit dac can i compare this to (modi multibit?)
    Thanks in advance.

    Much love, Bieske

    please post on All Purpose Advice thread or in a 2Ch thread.
    and read about not being a dotard.
    this question hardly warranted a new thread.
