Started out with a Saga then Loki leading to a Modi 3 and Magni Heresy and landing on a Freya S. All very positive things. Schiit is the new Dynaco. Offers a lot for the money.
I ended up with a much different setup than I figured I would. I was looking for a transition from a sweet sounding tube preamp and well, something else. The Freya S had most of what I was looking for so I gave it a try. For $600 how could I lose, right? Turns out the Freya S in passive mode through a tubed buffer stage is a great combination with a mix of balanced and unbalanced sources. I'm so impressed with how good it sounds that the transition ended up being a keeper.
I've have or had in the last couple years, Saga, Vidar, Freya+, Loki and Sys. Sold the Saga/Vidar to a friend who was looking for a combo to drive his new LRS's. He loves this match saying they sound better with the LRS than his Luxman 507ux. FWIW, I might take a shot at the Aegir someday.
