You asked for it—a one-box, do-all, no-excuses desktop system that’s ready for any headphone and powered monitor on the planet. Done. At the same time, why don’t we make the conventional, non-upgradable DAC/amp idea seem, well, a bit outdated? Done and done. Welcome to Jotunheim!
DAC/Amps: They’re Sooooo Last Decade Don’t get stuck with dumpster fodder when DAC technology changes—choose Jotunheim and be ready for today…and the future. Configure Jotunheim to your needs: use it as just an amp, or add an internal DAC or phono preamp. In the future, you’ll be able to easily upgrade to a different module—maybe even something beyond a DAC or phono preamp.
Ready For Any Headphone IEMs? Sure. HE-6? Sure. If this means nothing to you, just be confident that 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. Ready for Any Powered Monitor or Power Amp 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. Unrivaled Flexibility 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. Select balanced input, single-ended input, and an optional DAC, phono, or input module: By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Jotunheim—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. 5-Year Warranty.
