I'm comparing this amp with two Schiit Aegir's used as mono blocks, fed by a Freya+.
Maybe my speakers need more than the Aegir's can provide (Tekton Electron SE & Tekton Mini-Lore Monitor), but there's just an ease and clarity in the Audiophonics amp that the Schiit doesn't really hit. At least at lower volumes. I'll have to do some more listening. Very very good quality and sound though. A+
