Schiit Audio Jotunheim Balanced Headphone Amp & Preamp [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is an immaculate Jotenheim purchased in December 2016, used in a non-smoking child free environment.  I moved, downsized, and it has been out of the system for over a year. Time to thin the herd.

 

No marks, scratches on any surface, it is in excellent condition and operates perfectly.  Cost includes the PayPal fee and FedEx shipping, insured, signature required, to lower 48. You are probably familiar with Schiit products – this is one of the best. From their site:

 

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. 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. 

 

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.

This one comes with the excellent AK4490 DAC module. It is boxed and ready to go.

Some reviews:

The Jotunheim offers the best measurable performance of any Schiit Audio amplifier yet designed, though it is far from the most costly. The Jotunheim must be considered a bargain basement price for what promises to be a more or less world-class, fully balanced headphone amplifier/preamp.

For its five-hundred dollar asking price (with DAC ), it’s unlikely there exists a headphone amplifier that can compete with the Jotunheim’s combined audible performance and feature set.

 

The Schiit Jotunheim offers heavyweight performance in a middleweight-sized chassis for a bantamweight price. If that’s not an irresistible combination of virtues, I don’t know what would be.
