How is the Schiit Gungnir (USB Gen2) standing the test of time? It seems to garner less press than it use to. It also does not support DSD natively. But what kind of value does it pack for $850 vs. say the Hugo, 2Qute and other newer DACs?
The 2Qute may very well be my next DAC. I just want a great, state-of-the-art DAC for home stereo use, no HP output, etc. The 2Qute fits the bill at $1795.
I wonder how the 2 will compare against say the NAIM nDAC, DAC V-1, and TeddyPardo DAC.
So you think I can kill the power going to my PC USB port and have it output data to the DAC only? I can do this with the 'DAC-UP' port on my Gigabyte motherboard as a way of sending 'clean' signal to the DAC.
