Schiit Freya +

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

Freya Plus is a refinement of the original Freya, with higher performance, more features, and enhanced ease of use. But it’s still a true no-excuses, balanced, remote-control preamp. Switch between passive, differential buffer, and differential 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.

Whisper-Silent Tube Stage—With Tube Shutdown

Now, you can enjoy a tube preamp without the hiss and hum of classic designs. Freya+’s all-new tube stage with new-production Tung-Sol 6SN7 tubes, DC heaters and semi-circlotron, noise-cancelling output stage is whisper-silent. Better yet, it turns off when you’re not using it! That’s right, both the tube heater and high voltage rails go away when not in use, so you can preserve lifetime of costly tubes. 

Differential Buffer Stage—Versatile Interface

Freya+’s buffers aren’t just buffers—they’re differential. That means they convert single-ended signals to balanced, so you can interface more easily throughout your system. In addition, you can use it to convert SE sources to drive mono Vidar's and Aegirs. 

Easiest 128-Step 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 Freya+. Schiit Freya+ has a volume knob that works just like a volume knob—just grab and turn. And if you use the remote control, the motorised potentiometer changes to match the remote setting. 

Yes, Remote Control Included

When you’re talking about gear that doesn’t sit on your desktop (like Schiit's headphone amps), you need the convenience of remote control for volume, input switching, output switching, and muting. 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 Freya+ and Gungnir Multibit or Freya+ and Yggdrasil (or any other of Schiit's DACs) for a true no-compromise remote-controlled system.

Designed and Assembled In USA

By “designed and assembled in USA" this is what they mean is the vast majority of the total production of Freya+ chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc is manufactured in the US. Their chassis are made minutes from the facility. The PCBs are done just over the hill from Schiit, or done in North California. 

5-Year Warranty 

Schiit Freya+ is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts and labour. One exception: the tubes. Those we cover for 3 months.
