    Default Schiit Aegir Power Amp

    This might be worth considering if your in the market for a £700ish power amp

    Aye, would like to hear one.
    “Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radio”

    i like this bit of the review

    Harbeth's P3ESR loudspeakers, driven by the Nelson Pass-designed class-A, zero-feedback First Watt SIT-3 amplifier ($4000), have a special talent for making voices feel like they come from genuine humans (with moist vocal cords). This combo is my current reference for authentic fidelity. But folks, at exactly one-fifth the SIT-3's price, the Schiit Aegir gave me a majority-portion, perhaps as much as 80%, of the SIT-3's detail-rich humanity. What is the argument against that?

    I really didn't think I'd be drooling over such much American kit when I first started putting together my first hi-fi thirty years ago. But I love what companies like Schiit and Emotiva are doing at the moment - and all at a price point that is easily accessible. Love it!
