Hi my name is Ryan, I live in New York City. Up for your consideration is a pre-owned Schiit Ragnarok integrated amplifier - Conservatively rated as on 8/10. The amplifier works exactly as it should and as designed. The amplifier comes with all of the original accessories (a white box, a slim paper manual, and a power cord). I purchased this amplifier second hand from US AUDIO MART to use as a speaker amplifier as well as a headphone amplifier. I had excellent success pairing this amplifier with Klipsch Heresy III speakers as well as Audeze LCD2C and Sennheiser HD6XX headphones. I'm sure there are many more great pairings with great synergy to be had too. The amplifier looks nearly new. The face plate and back plate look mint with all lettering intact. The top and bottom look nearly mint with only a few small scratches on the right side. Very small and hard to see but there is a little bit of the dark grey paint missing towards the right rear and there are a few small mscratches on the right side top. These are about the size of a bic pen head. I rated the amplifier an 8/10 looking through the US Audio Mart rating scale just because I'd rather rate the amplifier conservatively and have someone impressed with the condition than disappointed. See the pictures to get a better idea about them and thank you. This amplifier is probably the best solid state amplifier I've ever listened to. Extremely transparent and faithful to the source but with a smooth neutrality that must be heard. Please look online for all of the amazing reviews. I am selling because I have decided to downsize to only one speaker amplifier (a Cary Audio CAD300SEI integrated) and already have a Schiit JOTUNHEIM for my desktop headphone system. Thank you!
A fun fact is that "Ragnarok" translates to "end of the world" and this is why this amplifier was called Ragnarok because Jason Stoddard (founder of Schiit Audio) intended this to be the statement amplifier.

If you are interested please contact me through the US Audio Mart system and I will respond within 24 hours or less. I would ideally prefer to sell to someone locally and will gladly meet halfway between our homes. I am happy to ship the amp in its original box with the original packing materials.
The Schiit Ragnarok will be sold "as-is" but rest assured I will make sure you are happy with our transaction and the amplifier. I have references I can provide or can give you my eBay name where I have a perfect seller feedback over many years selling.
I also have this for sale locally. Please PM me for availability and thank you.
trade - looking for DACs that are around equal value. Make me an offer!!
Thanks so much for your interest and happy shopping. :)
