I came to love the passive mode of a Schiit Freya which lead me to simplify to a Saga S which I exclusively run passive. I am happy with the sound I am getting now, but wonder about the Khozmo. I believe the Khozmo is as basic and well built of a design as one could hope for considering the price. I also like the fact that it has no power running through it, unlike the Schiit, but is it actually an upgrade or just a lateral move. My goal would be ultimate transparency at an affordable price. Anyone have any experience with Schiit passives and Khozmo?
