Great Passive Preamplifier

Recommended Posts

I just purchased and received a Schiit Freya S Passive and Active Preamplifier. Listening to it right now in Passive mode - fantastic! I am using a First Watt J2 as my power amplifier to drive my Klipsch Cornwallis. The Freya uses a relay-switched stepped attenuator with discrete thin-film resistors , 64 1dB steps. A dead quiet preamplifier. Tried the active stage and it was not up to the challenge compared to my existing Rogue Audio preamplifier. However, with the 25 wpc First Watt power amplifier, the active stage is not necessary, so the Freya S will definitely stay.

 

Cheers,

Dave

Okay. I just listened to Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way" and it was as if I heard it for the first time. I felt as if I heard the guitar live and in person. Bliss. And, hey, today is my birthday.
