Schiit Freya

Schiit Freya is a Balanced Passive or Active Pre amp with Remote Control

Now this is a no-excuses balanced preamp with remote-control! Switch between passive, active JFET buffer, and tube gain modes, enjoy the fine control of a 128-step relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control with perfect channel matching, and control it all from the comfort of your favourite chair—for many times less than you’d expect to pay.

It’s Your Choice: Passive, JFET Buffer, or Tube Gain

Go ahead. Run Schiit Freya in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, you can simply select the JFET buffer stage, or choose the tube gain stage (using 6SN7) —a serious gain stage running on 300V rails.p

128-Step Relay Attenuator

Most preamps—passive or active—use a potentiometer for volume control. The Schiit Freya uses a sophisticated microprocessor-controlled relay-stepped attenuator for perfect channel matching and zero distortion—and with 128 steps for ultra-precise level control. You can hear it clicking as you turn the volume up and down.

Yes, Remote Control Included

When you’re talking about gear that doesn’t sit on your desktop (like our headphone amps), you need the convenience of remote control for volume, input switching, output switching, and muting. The Schiit Freya includes a custom remote control, standard.

Perfect Companion to Our DACs

Want a remote-controlled system to interface your digital gear with the rest of your system? Stack the Schiit Freya and Schiit Gungnir Multibit or Freya and Schiit Yggdrasil (or any other of our DACs) for a true no-compromise remote-controlled system.
