Okay. Let’s blow up this high-end nonsense. Here’s your ultra-high-end amplifier, without the ultra-high-end price. Welcome to the revolution.

No-Excuses Amp, No-Brainer Price

Schiit Vidar is nothing less than a no-excuses, exotic-topology, Class-AB, linear-supply, microprocessor-controlled, power-doubling, dual-mono-ish, intelligently-managed, drives-almost-anything power amp. No Class D, no switching supplies, no fans, no compromises, nothing in the signal path but music—for a three-figure price tag.

Small Size, Big Power

Don’t let the compact size fool you—pick up the Schiit Vidar to get a real feeling for the beefy 600VA transformer inside. Vidar may be small, but it’s also a powerhouse, delivering 100W per channel into 8 ohms, doubling to 200W per channel into 4 ohms.

Stereo or Mono Flexibility

Combine the Schiit Vidar with a single-ended preamp like Saga for a complete system with insane, no-compromise performance—for just a little over a grand. Or, run two Schiit Vidar's from a preamp with balanced outputs (like our Freya) for true mono block performance and 400 watts per channel into 8 ohms.

Intelligent Oversight and Protection

The Schiit Vidar, has a microprocessor that oversees all important aspects of amplifier operation, from DC offset to over-current and over-temperature faults. This provides stable, safe operation without invasive current-limiting, fuses, or active devices in the power supply path. In English, Vidar makes sure it’s operating optimally at all times—and protects itself when it needs to, so you can be assured of excellent performance for a long, long time.

Made in USA. Really.

By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA.
