Mjolnir is the only devoted earphone amp making use of an Circlotron-style geography with high-voltage JFET inputs and MOSFET outputs. Unlike other well balanced earphone amps, Mjolnir is not simply 2 of the exact same amps in a box, with one run inverted. It's a distinct, inherently well balanced stage that provides both low intricacy and very high performance. "So what the heck does that mean in English?" You ask. Right here it is: 8 times the output power, 8X lower distortion, and less sound than Asgard. Mjolnir is a super-powerful amp, but it's also peaceful enough to be made use of with the most delicate headsets. And, because it's all solid-state, it's set-and forget. No tubes to replace. No tube rolling. So, what's the catch? Just this: Mjolnir is ONLY a balanced amp. There are no single-ended outputs. Welcome to the marvels of cross-shunt push-pull topologies.
BALANCED CROSSFETTM HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER ZERO FEEDBACK | SINGLE VOLTAGE GAIN STAGE
Mjolnir is the only dedicated headphone amp using an Circlotron-style topology with high-voltage JFET inputs and MOSFET outputs. Unlike other balanced headphone amps, Mjolnir is not simply two of the same amps in a box, with one run inverted. It's a unique, inherently balanced stage that delivers both low complexity and very high performance.
No-Excuses, End-Game Balanced Amp You won't find any balanced-to-single-ended conversion or vice-versa in Mjolnir. It's balanced in and balanced out, with a 4-gang RK27 Alps volume pot--providing end-game performance for a mid-level price.
High Power for Any Headphones High-gain amps can be noisy. This doesn't matter for low-efficiency orthodynamics, but if you have, say, Denons, it may not be ideal. Mjolnir delivers both 8W RMS per channel, and exceptionally low noise.
Unique, Simple CrossfetTM topology Mjolnir is the only dedicated headphone amp using a Circlotron-style, or cross-shunt push-pull topology. This CrossfetTM topology allows us to use only N-channel MOSFETs, for better matching and lower distortion. It also significantly simplifies the output stage.
