From Audio Science Reviews' review of the Schiit SYS Volume Control and 2-Input Switch, first published on February 8th, 2018:
For $49, the Schiit Sys is a bargain. I know I can't build and sell it as cheaply to you. Measurements are fine. Nothing jumps out out of ordinary. If you need a passive volume control with dual inputs, I recommend this product.
From Audiophilestyle's review of the Schiit SYS Volume Control and 2-Input Switch, first published on October 4th, 2014:
This would be a great item in a desktop system or in any system where you want to get by without an expensive preamp, but need a volume control. Or just as a decent looking analog switchbox. A useful item to have around, and for the price you haven't got much to lose.
