Just waiting for the text "Audio Precision Report for Tyr" to become a link to the PDF.

won't there be magnetic coupling issues between the transformers? Surely this will harm the precious soundstage stuff or whatever.
Edit: one is a choke not a transformer. However it should still be in a different orientation to the transformer.

I want to like it, but that's a pretty hefty price tag. And a pretty hefty package as well. I, too, will wait to see how the Soncoz amp turns out.

55 lbs. 12 lb choke. 160,000uf filter capacitance. 24 150W Toshiba output devices. 7 internal power supply rails, including HV boost rails that uses unique discrete CFP regulators. Sounds like overkill? It is. Tyr is our most insane amplifier ever, designed for driving difficult speakers without breaking a sweat.

Nice.
My solid state monos 20 years ago had 200.000uF / channel capacitance and ab. 200W
Just sold my last solid state monos. Now I own only 845 triode 20W monos with no-compromise mods, nothing else on planet earth sounds as good for me :) I know, subjective bs.

Just noticed the monobloc Schitt Tyr has been released for sale @ $1599 per. Looks interesting. Specs:

Power Output:


8 Ohms:
200W RMS per channel maximum

4 Ohms: 350W RMS per channel maximum



Frequency Response: 20Hz-20Khz, -0.1db, 3Hz-500KHz, -3dB



THD: <0.01%, 20Hz-20KHz, at 200W RMS into 8 ohms

IMD: <0.01%, CCIR, at 200W RMS into 8 ohms



SNR: >125db, A-weighted, referenced to full output



Damping Factor: >200 into 8 ohms, 20-20kHz



Gain: 22 (28dB)



Input Sensitivity: AKA Rated Output (Vrms)/Rated Gain. Or, 40/22. You do the math.



Input Impedance: 47k ohms SE, 47k ohms balanced



Inputs: RCA for SE input, XLR for balanced input, rear panel switchable



Topology: Nexus™ discrete differential current feedback gain stage, no coupling capacitors or DC servos with Continuity™ constant transconductance output stage, all BJT output



Oversight: microprocessor-controlled monitoring and management of critical operational points, including DC offset, with standby mode and relay shut-down for overcurrent, thermal, and other faults



Power Supply: 600VA transformer with 600VA choke input to main rails, plus boosted, regulated supply to input, voltage gain and driver stages, plus separate, isolated and regulated rails for microprocessor management.



Power Consumption: 750W maximum



Size: 16” x 13” x 3.875”

Is there a dislike button? ;)

Jokes aside, I have no idea who is supposed to be buying this product.

There is an large group of audio enthusiasts who worship at the Schiit Altar. They will post multitudes in various fora about the newest upcoming product they release. Someone on the Schitt thread "Schiit Two Channel Clubhouse" has already placed an order.
