Wait. Tube or solid-state? Yes. Not only is Mjolnir 2 the only balanced tube hybrid headphone amp.
Wait. Tube or solid-state? Yes. Not only is Mjolnir 2 the only balanced tube hybrid headphone amp, it introduces our all-new LISST solid-state tube option for a 100% solid-state option. In terms of performance, it is a unique end-game headphone amp fully ready for any headphone, from IEMs to the hardest-to-drive planars.
Mjolnir is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labor for five years. That’s 5 years. Yes. FIVE. Compare that to the competition.
Made in USA—Really
Don’t roll your eyes. When we say, “Made in USA,” that’s exactly what we mean, with no weasel-wording. The vast majority of the total cost of Mjolnir goes to US companies manufacturing in the USA—most of them within easy driving distance from our office.
Choose Tube Hybrid, Solid-State, or Both
Yes, that’s right. You can get Mjolnir 2 as a tube hybrid, or as a pure solid-state amp—or get both, and swap out as you’d like. You can also swap the standard 6BZ7 tubes for anything in the 6DJ8, 6922, ECC88, and 2492 families, to “roll” the sound to your specific preference. Or just opt for the Schiit LISST (Linear, Integral Solid-State Tube) for a 100% solid state amp.
Power and Control in Abundance
Mjolnir 2 puts out up to 8W/channel into 32 ohms, but is fully ready for high-sensitivity headphones with switchable gain. Use the standard gain of 8 for hard-to-drive headphones, or switch to a gain of 1 for sensitive on-ear models and IEMs. In addition, Mjolnir 2 also offers both balanced and single-ended input, switchable via the front panel. Want more? How about both balanced and single-ended headphone outputs and balanced and single-ended preamp outputs. Mjolnir also makes a great preamp for your power amps or powered monitors.
Pure Balanced, Differential Topology
Mjolnir uses our exclusive, inherently balanced and differential Crossfet topology—the only circlotron-style topology in a headphone amplifier (well, except for Ragnarok.) It’s balanced in and balanced out, with a custom 4-gang RK27 Alps volume pot—providing end-game performance for a mid-level price.
