Schiit Loki

Schiit Loki is a high quality tone control or equaliser

Yes, tone control. As in, equaliser. And yes, we know that tone controls have kind of fallen off the planet for the last few decades. But now Schiit thinks it’s time for them to come back—in a new, super-high-fidelity, low noise, single-discrete-gain-stage and LC filtering kind of way. (In English, that means this is an exceptionally quiet, transparent, great-sounding device.)

Ideal for the Imperfect System

And by “imperfect system,” Schiit mean “every system on the face of the planet.” Admit it. Are your speakers perfect? Are your headphones perfect? Are your recordings perfect? If you’re honest, the answer is “no.” Some speakers and headphones are a bit bright or a bit dark. Some recordings aren’t paragons of tonal purity. Schiit's Loki lets you adjust for these imperfections.

Tune to Your Desires

Let’s face it. Not everyone wants a bright, analytical system. Not everyone wants crazy pounding bass. We’re all individuals, and we all have preferences. With Schiit's Loki, you can go beyond tuning out imperfections—you can tune the system to the way you want it to sound.

Not Your Father’s EQ

Best of all, the Schiit Loki allows you this level of control, while retaining transparency. Instead of a stack of noisy op-amps attached to open-frame, dust-collecting sliders (like EQ's you may have used in the past), the Loki uses a single, discrete, current-feedback gain stage, coupled to passive LC filters for 3 bands, plus a gyrator for the bass. It also uses sealed Alps potentiometers with rational adjustment ranges to allow for fine control. Coupled with a 100% passive bypass setting, Schiit's Loki offers the transparency and flexibility you need.

Made in USA

By “made in USA,” Schiit mean made in USA. The vast majority of the production of Loki—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—comes from US companies  in the US. Yes, the wall warts are from China, but there you go. There is some give and take to reach this price point.

2-Year Warranty

Loki is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for two years. That’s 2x the coverage of most amps in this price range.
