These units never hit the used market, but here is your chance. I am combining too may 'boxes' into one to make room on my system rack (DAC, Headphone Amp, Power Supply, and this Preamp) and hence decided to part with this only 6 month old unit with very limited use and in absolutely mint condition (see purchase receipt in the pics). The package comes with the following:
- Schiit Freya
- All original packaging and accessories (i.e. power cord, manual, etc.)
- 4 original NOS Russian 6N8S tubes
- 2 new Russian Tung Sol tubes
- 2 new Shuguang Treasure CV-181-Z (6SN7)
- 4 installed 'Socket savers' to allow use of the CV-181 tubes
- Remote Control
- A brand new quad of Vibrapod Isolator Feet Model 1 (I don't like the small hard feet of the Freya and these do wonders to isolate the preamp)
My asking price includes shipping in Conus and paypal fees. No trades or lowball offer please. Check my feedback and buy with confidence.
Please also see my separate listing for 4 beautifully sounding (and looking) NOS Tung Sol 6SN7 tubes I purchased for this unit, but used for less than an hour. From the web:
Now this is a no-excuses balanced, remote-control preamp! Switch between passive, active JFET buffer, and tube gain modes, enjoy the fine control of a 128-step relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control with perfect channel matching, and control it all from the comfort of your favorite chair—for many times less than you’d expect to pay.
It’s Your Choice: Passive, JFET Buffer, or Tube Gain Go ahead. Run Freya in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, you can simply select the JFET buffer stage, or choose the tube gain stage—a serious gain stage running on 300V rails. 128-Step Relay Attenuator Most preamps—passive or active—use a potentiometer for volume control. Freya uses a sophisticated microprocessor-controlled relay-stepped attenuator for perfect channel matching and zero distortion—and with 128 steps for ultra-precise level control. You can hear it clicking as you turn the volume up and down. Yes, Remote Control Included When you’re talking about gear that doesn’t sit on your desktop (like our headphone amps), you need the convenience of remote control for volume, input switching, output switching, and muting. Freya includes a custom remote control, standard. Perfect Companion to Our DACs Want a remote-controlled system to interface your digital gear with the rest of your system? Stack Freya and Gungnir Multibit or Freya and Yggdrasil (or any other of our DACs) for a true no-compromise remote-controlled system. Made in USA. Really. By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Freya—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. 5-Year Warranty and Easy Return Policy Freya is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts and labor. One exception: the tubes. Those we cover for 3 months. And if you don’t like your Freya, you can send it back for a refund, minus 5% restocking fee, within 15 days of receiving it.
