Schiit Saga S

Schiit Saga is a Single Ended Pre amp with Remote Control

Schiit Saga S is just like Saga+—without the tube. Like Saga+, Saga S gives you all the uber-high-end, no-compromises features you need in a preamp, including a real relay-switched volume control, a switchable DC-coupled discrete JFET buffer, and a custom remote control. 

Saga S: The Solid-State Saga

What is Saga S? It’s simple—it’s basically a Saga+ with a discrete JFET buffer stage in place of the tube stage. We understand some people don’t want to deal with tubes, so we went ahead and made one that was 100% solid state. 

It’s Your Choice: Passive or Active

Go ahead. Run Saga S in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, switch it to the discrete, DC-coupled JFET buffer mode.

Easiest Relay-Switched Volume, Ever

The benefits of a relay-switched stepped attenuator for volume are clear. Compared to a potentiometer, they give you essentially perfect channel matching and near-unmeasurable distortion. However, some preamps with relay-stepped attenuators confuse you with buttons and screens. Not Saga S. Saga S has a volume knob that works just like a volume knob—just grab and turn. And if you use the remote control, the motorized potentiometer changes to match the remote setting. 

Perfect Companion to Schiit DAC's

Want a remote-controlled system to interface your digital gear with the rest of your system? Stack Saga S and Bifrost (or any other DAC's) for a true no-compromise remote-controlled system.

Designed and Assembled In USA

By “designed and assembled in USA" this is what this means: the vast majority of the total production of Saga S—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—is manufacturing in the US. The chassis are made minutes from Schiit's facility. Their PCBs are done just over the hill from them, or done in North California. 

5-Year Warranty 

Saga S is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts and labour.
