Ever wanted an ultra-high-end speaker amp—in a compact size perfect for desktops and smaller rooms? Have you wished for a dead-silent, no-hiss amp for nearfield listening—that’s still capable of driving most speakers to lease-breaking levels? Wish no more. Welcome to Gjallarhorn.

Less Power, More Better

There are plenty of big-number amps out there, but how much of that do you really use? How loud before the neighbors complain? How old does the constant hiss of a high-gain amp get with the speakers a few feet away? Gjallarhorn was designed to deliver exceptional performance, without the downsides. Or, as we put it: less power, more better.

Exotic, Fully Discrete Topology

Gjallarhorn may be smaller than the other amps, but that doesn’t mean it skimps on quality. It features an exotic, fully discrete, current feedback gain stage with Schiit's  exclusive Continuity S™ output stage, as well as a fully linear power supply—including a toroidal transformer with stacked rails and 30,000uF of filter capacitance. No Class D, no switching supplies, no fans. Pick it up—it’s a heavyweight!

Flexible for Desktop and Beyond

Combine Gjallarhorn with any of the Schiit headphone amps to add power for near field monitors, or pair with Saga for an exceptional small-room system. Have balanced preamp outputs? You can use them with a pair of Gjallarhorns, for additional power and capability.

By “designed and built in Texas" this is what Schiit mean: the vast majority of the total production of the Gjallarhorn—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—stays local. The chassis are made in California. The PCBs are done in Nevada. 

5-Year Warranty 

Gjallarhorn is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for five years.
