Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 8

post #106 of 3320

Hey guys--we'll definitely announce this month, but remember, this month has 30 full days in it . . .

 

Seriously, though, it'll probably be between the middle and end of the month. Mike and I are doing some final tweaks and finishing up the orders for production now. Expect it to go something like this:

 

June 15-30: First DAC announcement, and some details on the next ones. 

August 15-30: First DAC ships.

 

And, oh yeah . . . the first DAC's name is: Bifrost. 

 

You heard it here first!

No Thor action-figure posing on top of it then, Heimdallr might get a little mad.

 

Depending on the price point, I'm really considering using one of these DACs in a Christmas-y time Magnepan setup.

Bifrost? The wait and suspense in anticipation of the release of this DAC is leading to Permafrost. wink.gif

Nope, I have heard it before :D

The bridge to Asgard in Norse mythology...can't wait to have one.

That's so funny. I finally watched Thor yesterday, and the whole time when hearing "Asgard," I kept thinking about headphone amps. You Schiit guys and your Norse mythology fascination. Anyway, will be getting the Lyr soon enough, and hungrily waiting for Bifrost news.

You should really make the announcement before father's day. ;-)
