    Might be worth it for us to buy a Valhalla 2 for the loaner program? Jason's already cool with offering us a Jotun. I can bring other Schiit gear to the mini-meet. Others can too.

    I think so. It seems like a good reference to calibrate impressions of other amps against.

    question for jotun owners:

    Does the gain switch have any audible effect on preamp output?

    I have high hopes for the diminutive Jot. I'll be feeding it with Gungnir Multibit which should make a fairly good complementary dac to the neutral Jot. Mine shipped and says that it will be here on Friday.

    I ordered a Jotun-DAC today to replace something else that replaced yet something that just broke. I had a Centrance DACport LX driving an old Audio Synthesis Passion into an amp and some speakers for my home computer, but since the main system's preamp/processor died, the Passion is temporarily doing volume control duties there, and the computer system has no sound. Jotun-DAC will replace the Centrance and ASP.

    I have to at least smell the outside of the box before I sell any gear.

    Those are all powerful however when you do your research pick the one mentioned to have the most speed, clarity, and dynamics. The Omni has a wonderful balance but can really benefit from the above. Its a bit early for a question like that though and the Joty would prob be the easiest to sell if you don't like it.

    My understanding is that RP1 is a bit meh entry-level unit when compared even to the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. I'm not sure though if the latter is any better than the RPM1.3, even if the pricing is rather similar...
