Schiit Saga

Schiit Saga is a Single Ended Passive or Active Preamp with Remote Control

A passive or active preamp? A relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control for perfect channel matching and unmeasurable distortion? A unique active stage that uses a hybrid tube buffer? And a remote control included? For £360? Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes. Get prepared as Schiit rewrites the value equation in home audio the same way we’ve done for the desktop.

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. Schiit's Saga includes a custom remote control, standard.

It’s Your Choice: Passive or Active

Go ahead. Run the Schiit Saga in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, or want to add some “tube sound” switch it to the 6SN7-based hybrid tube buffer—a serious buffer running on 200V rails with vanishingly low distortion.

Relay Stepped Attenuator

Most preamps—passive or active—use a potentiometer for volume control. There’s nothing wrong with this approach, but some pots can have channel imbalance at lower volume levels (so that one channel sounds louder than the other). The Schiit Saga uses a sophisticated microprocessor-controlled relay-stepped attenuator for perfect channel matching and zero distortion. You can hear it clicking as you turn the volume up and down.

Perfect Companion to Our DACs

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