    That says more about people at a secret meet being able to keep a secret. :)

    About the vid, he could have waited until noon tomorrow. :rolleyes:

    Damn. 900 mW into 300 ohm!? With true balanced, that is a boatload of voltage swing potential. Keen to hear impressions into the senns. Not expecting the moon, but for the price it might be a great stop gap.

    Just got confirmation @MikeMercer is going to be attending. Man it's been too long. Looking forward to seeing you there. Haven't seen you around so hope things have been good.

    Obviously running balanced the Joti has significantly more power than the Asgard, but interestingly it has less power in the SE at 300 ohms than the Asgard, even though it has more power at 32 ohms than the Asgard.

    Think this will be the only thing announced tomorrow?

    It would be pretty badass if they pulled an "oh and one more thing, we also have a multibit dac card for it!"

    DAC aside, as an Amp, how does this compare with the tech used in the Liquid Carbon?

    Also, I missed it, but is the pre-out variable, fixed, or switchable?

    Hm, no screws on the top plate. Cunning new assembly method?

    @SSL: Ah, that is a nice touch. Seems appropriate that Jotun be sleeker, given this is a new chassis.

    Naw, I think Jason is licking 'em together. Like one might seal an envelope! Stoddard Saliva, patent pending.

    In a weird mood. :drunk:

    Cot damn I wanna hear this. The V5 I love and adore uses a balanced, current feedback design, as well.. albeit with opamps (carefully chosen and maximized).. and it sounded fast as hell.. but not thin, harsh, or brittle at all.. a pretty unique sound to my ears. This thing is even more sophisticated.

    The lack of fucks Schiit is giving is, quite simply, alarming.

    So, you think they're saving the name Thor for the two channel speaker amp?

    If so, I called it and deserve a free one.

    Haven't all the Schiit names been locations, not people/deities?

    @AllanMarcus: Mostly, although Magni and Modi are Thor's kids. Vali is one of Odin's (many) offspring. And Mani is the personification of the Moon. So a few lesser deities, there.
