Now for sale! This Schiit Freya S solid state pre amp! Purchased only this past February, this unit is in great condition. Preamp features fully passive, buffered and active gain (x4) modes. Passive mode is just that. Purely passive with a 128-stepped attenuation. That alone is worth the price of admission is it is an excellent passive pre which is very transparent. From there, you can also do buffered mode. To my ears, there is no discernible difference, but buffered mode does allow you to use the balanced outputs with single ended (RCA) inputs. A nifty feature. Finally, you have fully active mode. A really nice boost in gain, soundstage and dynamics while making a small sacrifice in transparency. The remote control is included and has a couple of tiny nicks on it. This unit was a great buy at $599 when I first bought and is a downright steal at my $299 asking price. As I said before, the passive mode alone is more than worth the price. Bid today!
