Description

Details

You asked for it—a one-box, do-all, no-excuses desktop system that’s ready for any headphone and powered monitor on the planet. Done. At the same time, why don’t we make the conventional, non-upgradable DAC/amp idea seem, well, a bit outdated? Done and done. Welcome to Jotunheim!

DAC/Amps: They’re Sooooo Last Decade
Don’t get stuck with dumpster fodder when DAC technology changes—choose Jotunheim and be ready for today…and the future. Configure Jotunheim to your needs: use it as just an amp, or add an internal DAC or phono preamp. In the future, you’ll be able to easily upgrade to a different module—maybe even something beyond a DAC or phono preamp.
 
Ready For Any Headphone
IEMs? Sure. HE-6? Sure. If this means nothing to you, just be confident that you can plug any headphone into Jotunheim and get great sound, with ultimate power and authority. Balanced or single-ended—it doesn’t matter. With 5W output into 32 ohms from the balanced outputs, Jotunheim has tons of power to spare.
 
Ready for Any Powered Monitor or Power Amp
Balanced and single-ended preamp outs mean that Jotunheim is ready for any powered desktop monitor—or to plug into those gigadollar monoblocks you’ve been eyeing. 
 
Unrivaled Flexibility
Select high or low gain with the flick of a front-panel switch, for compatibility with both easy-to-drive and hard-to-drive headphones. Select from two different DAC modules, a phono input module, or no module at all to tailor Jotunheim exactly to your needs. 
  • Multibit DAC. Choose the optional Multibit DAC Module to get Schiit’s unique digital filter and multibit DAC architecture, as used in Modi Multibit, for $200.
  • AK4490 DAC. Or choose the more affordable AK4490 DAC module for a world-class delta-sigma DAC for only $100. 
  • MM Phono. Or, choose the MM phono input module, for 42dB of gain and passive RIAA, for great phono sound, at only $100. 

Unique Pivot Point Gain Stage
Jotunheim's gain stage is a unique, inherently balanced, fully discrete current feedback topology that provides both balanced and single-ended output without the need for splitters or summers. It provides extremely wide bandwidth and excellent measured performance—together with the advantages of constant, low feedback across the entire audio band. What does all this techno-talk mean? In English, excellent performance from all inputs and outputs.

Designed and Assembled in USA
By “designed and assembled in USA" this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production cost of Jotunheim—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our chassis are made minutes from our facility. Our PCBs are done just over the hill from us, or done in NorCal. Our transformers are also made in California. You get the picture.
