Octal LISST, New Tube Options

Solid-State Tubes Now Available for Saga and Freya, New-Production Tung-Sol Optional
 
February 5, 2018, Valencia, CA. Responding to customer needs, Schiit Audio announced the availability of its LISST “solid state tube” design in octal form, to fit the Saga and Freya preamps directly. In addition, Schiit has added the option to choose new-production Tung-Sol brand 6SN7 tubes, instead of the NOS 6N8S.
 
“Octal LISST allows our customers to convert Saga and Freya into all solid-state preamplifiers,” said Jason Stoddard, Schiit’s Co-Founder. “So if you don’t want a tube preamp, you don’t need to settle for one—just choose LISST.”
 
The original LISST, used in Vali 2, Lyr 2, and Mjolnir 2, continues in production. 
 
In addition, Schiit added a new tube option for Saga and Freya—new production Tung-Sol brand 6SN7s. Customers had been asking for a new-production option, and the Tung-Sol brand tubes tested the best in a comparison of new 6SN7s.
 
“This is the first time we’ve recommended a new-production tube as an upgrade from NOS,” said Jason Stoddard. “But we’ve found that the Tung-sols are quieter, less microphonic, and more consistent than NOS, in this case. And, all Tung-sols are measured and matched here, both in terms of single-tube triode-to-triode balance and tube-to-tube.”
 
Octal LISST are available now as an option for Saga and Freya at $40 each, or separately for $50. Matched Tung-sol 6SN7s are available now as an upgrade for Saga and Freya at $25 each, or separately for $30.
