Retro and Futuristic

 

The Schiit Asgard One Headphone Amplifier Ramblings:Head-Fi is a roller-coaster! As consumers we are always blasted by the front page of Head-Fi and it's both easy to get confused and overwhelmed as to what would be useful in an audio set up. In the...

Easy Non-complicated Perfection

It Gets Warm, But That's The Cool Part

Consumer review by: Hi-Fi'er (head-fi.org)

Excellent in Price Category and Value

 

I've been reading so many replies and reviews how the O2, Magni and Vali sound the same. After weeks of listening to all of them, (yes I have them all) they are all not exactly the same . I've been using the same music and all else in the system is the...

Detailed, Realistic Sounding, Bassier, Deeper, Smoother and Wider Soundstage

Larger that younger siblings; gets warm including the volume knob, but nothing crazy.

My First Amp!!

 

Ever since I became fascinated with sound and music (two or three years ago) I quickly realized audio gear doesn't come cheap. I was forced to only really buy budget gear unless it was my birthday or some kind of holiday. Anyways, Christmas was a week...

Looks good, warm and relaxed sound

Not a lot of treble, it may lack detail

Good stuff

 

This was my first dedicated headphone amp. Before this, I ran a couple of component stereo receivers on my desk at work. I enjoy listening to my higher end home stereo system, and listening on my daily walk with my IEMs (in ear monitors) Initial...

weighty, looks great, powerful sound

slight hum

Newbie Review for Fellow Newbies

 

Mike and Jason have now successfully parted me with a tidy sum, but when I listen to their gear I smile. I have an old pair of Grado SR-225's that I now realize I have never really heard. I had already owned the Bifrost for my stereo but I had been...

Class A Sound

More of a headstage, cosmetically the LED does not match the Bifrost

Consumer review by: RushNerd (head-fi.org)

Holy Schiit.

 

First off, when I got this thing it was a lot bigger than I was expecting. This is a hefty unit that's built to last and gets hot but not too much. Turning on the mini switch in the back results in white LED (very rare to see a white LED on...

Rock solid build quality, tons of power, great sound

turning knob up all the way results in random buzzing, not a huge issue but not sure what it's picking up or if it's just like that. On/Off clicking.

Incredible VALUE!

 

Nearly every aspect of this amp can't be found for less money. You sould buy this amp for the sound, the value, and the customer service, oh the customer service. If Schiit isn't the industry standard in customer service I would be INCREDIBLY...

Sounds much more than $250, feels like much more than $250, low impedance output so it works with basically all headphones, made in USA

Runs a little hot...

Amazing detailed amp for it's price

 

I got an excellent deal on my Asgard and always wanted to test out a Schiit Audio product. I kind of underestimated them after someone saying that the Objective 2 sounds as nice as this for a lower cost. I've built over 10 Objective 2's myself and I...

Detail, Warmness, Design, Cost

Nice.

 

What can I say, I love this amplifier. However, if you're reading this, I'd take that with a grain of salt, since I have little experience with amplifiers. In fact, this is my first 'real' headphone amplifier, and I must say, I absolutely love it....

Sound, Design, Customer Service, Quality

None that I have found
