Is the Schiit stack worth it?
The Schiit stack is the best stack currently in the market in relation to the price. There can be cheaper components that you can purchase, but they are not a stack, in the sense of this uniform perpendicular landscape. Likewise, there are superior audio stacks, but they cost many times more.
Who owns Schiit?
Jason Stoddard, Founder of Schiit Audio.
Is the Schiit Modi balanced?
Yes. We chose to optimize for each use. The balanced output stage uses an inherently balanced, differential op-amp, whereas the SE stages use a single-ended op-amp. Both are very high performance, and both are designed specifically for their use.
