Lots of people talking about this amp, figured I would start a thread so we can consolidate things. Previewed at RMAF 2018, here’s what we know about the Aegir: From @schiit on HF: “10W of Class A bias and a Continuity output stage gets you 150-160W into 4 ohms mono with performance very, very similar to Class A, without the several amperes of standing current and massive heat usually necessary for Class A at that level” Power Output specs: Stereo mode: 20w into 8 ohms or 40w into 4 ohms Monoblock mode: 80w into 8 ohms or 160w into 4 ohms Estimated price: $799 USD Estimated launch date: Early 2019 Full spec sheet/flyer from RMAF: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...-audio-fest-rmaf-2018.6782/page-6#post-227468 @zerodeefex’s initial impressions from RMAF: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...alks-about-mcdonalds.5246/page-23#post-227415 Pics from RMAF: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...-audio-fest-rmaf-2018.6782/page-8#post-227690 And…wait for it…an actual standby button on the FRONT of the case. Makes sense with a Class A type design, unless you need to use it for a portable space heater – according to Jason it “de-biases the output stage and puts the amp in a “standby” mode, yes. It takes idle power down from 200W or so to 15W or so. I think. I haven’t actually measured that for the specs yet.” There should be a chapter from Jason about it on HF soon.
