So word on the street has it that the SE (RCA) outputs on the GMB are crap. I already have a RCA-DIN interconnect from Chord. A $600 one. I am not getting rid of it.    Will the the BiFrost get Multibit? And if so, could it potentially sound better (via SE outputs) than the GMB?   It would appear that the Audio GD-19 at $650 has much better SE outputs, so why bother with the GMB?    Why did Schiit gimp SE on the GMB anyway? To protect the Yiggy?    I mean I don't...
Has anyone compared these three DACs.   1. Audio-GD 19 ($650) 2. Schitt GMB ($1250) 3a. Chord 2Qute ($1800) 3b. Chord Hugo ($2500)   All are in the running. Coming from a Meridian Director. Input will be USB / HTPC. Output will be RCA. DSD/DXD not a concern. Portability not needed (just an added fun factor of the Hugo)
I think I read on a different (praising a different DAC) someone argues that the RCA outputs of the GMB are crap compared to the XLR. Did Schiit gimp the RCA outputs in some way? 
I would suggest that anyone having driver issues, esp. with Win10, that the problem lies with the driver/OS and not with the Schiit.   If you are having problems in Windows, then try the Live Linux Distro option mentioned a page or two ago. Download the distro image file, install it onto a USB stick, boot into Linux, and try listening that way.   Perhaps this option: http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Downloads
I live in DC not far from Rockville but I am afraid I've never been to a meet.    Thanks for the feedback. Please let me know if you can ever audition a 2Qute for comparison...
^Thanks for the lengthy reply?   What happened to the Yggdrasil? How does it compare with the GMB?   Are you using any special power/USB conditioning for the GMB?   And lastly, have you heard the 2Qute?
I too paid about $350 for mine when I bought my NAIM amp gear. So I take it you feel the GMB to be a substantial upgrade to the Director? In what ways?I am debating the GMB vs. Chord 2Qute as my next DAC.
What OS is your laptop running?  Have you tried an OS besides Win10?
My question remains: GMB at $1250 vs. 2Qute at $1800? We're talking bare here...before the former "needs" a Wyrd/JitterBug/Regen BS...
So what does a Regen do that the Wyrd doesn't or vice versa?
