For a community that loves music, here is something worth taking note of: Electronic Opus is an innovative music experiment by musical genius BT. It's currently in a crowd-funding stage with Kickstarter and it needs our help.    I'm in no way affiliated with BT, but he's been a music hero for me for 15 years now. If you're unfamiliar with his music, you're truly missing out. BT is unquestionably the godfather of trance, shifting the sounds of electronic music forever....
Yeah, I have that exact setup at work and it's solid / no lift. 
 I can also imagine product development issues. I'm sure AudioQuest runs into this with the Dragonfly. Not every computer has a clean, accessible, flush-mount USB port. Some manufacturers put ports too close together, the power port in the way, USB ports on the back, etc. And I'm sure many will want to use the Fulla on a desktop computer, which may only have an available port on the back of the tower/monitor. Requiring a (short) cable avoids all of these issues. Smart on...

I think you'll be just fine. Jason said they're not building up stock and shipping out—they're all build to order. So I imagine they just build one after the other as orders come in. So long as their suppliers don't hold them up...
If you care about hi-res stuff, use USB. Macs only go up to 96k via optical. Not something I care about, but FYI.
One thing Schiit's site says is that the Gungnir has "60% higher voltage rails" than the Bifrost, but (1) is that negated by the über upgrade and (2) would that make a huge difference? These are honest questions, I'm not claiming to know anything...   That being said, I agree with @ab initio. That dude knows his stuff about DACs. Furthermore, I have the Gungnir and the Modi, and while I love the Gungnir and have no regrets buying it, the difference between it and the...
