leesure, I think you need to fly to CA immediately and volunteer to "live tweet" the USB tests.  ;-)

Also had a chance to listen to Bifrost. OMG, the details, the sound stage, and the treble/bass extension. I couldn't believe it first, so i actually took out my laptop and listened through my own HE-500.

What did i think at the end? Well...I placed an order immediately. :-) 


Interesting... I see you have an NFB-3.  Would you say the Bifrost operates on the same level or above?

2X I too am interested as I have the NFB-3.

same here. i'd LOVE to hear about how Bifrost compares to NFB3

post #1089 of 3320

I think that it is only fair that I form any kind of opinion after i actually have Bifrost at hand and listen to it for couple days. My beloved NFB-3 deserves that. :-)

That being said. I did hear some details and a bigger sound stage which i didn't remember hearing from my NFB-3. I used the same headphone (HE-500) and amp (Lyr) at the show, so it could only be the DAC.

i ordered a non-USB version, so should have it soon. will report back. :-)

My order is in the 400's and it just shipped a few hours ago. I'm anxious to compare the Bifrost/Lyr combo to my Arcam FMJ cd player and Cambridge Audio preamp. The Arcam replaced an old Theta Pro Prime dac and Rotel cd player that I used for many years. I'm curious to see if the Bifrost can atleast equal it in sound quality. I've got HD600's, a DT880 and a DT990 Pro to try on it.

Photos can be deceptive - the camera adds at least 50lbs to my svelte frame - but going on that shot I reckon Rina is more attractive than Ray Samuels. Sorry, Ray, but it had to be said.  tongue.gif

Uh..... yeah!

post #1095 of 3320

I had the NFB-2 earlier this year, but since then my speakers have changed to something much better, the Vapor Sound Cirrus, so a comparison between that and the Bifrost will not be fair.

 

I currently have a CA-751 blu-ray player, which has what is essentially an onboard DacMagic. Wolfson dacs for each channel, and the same Anagram Q5 upsampling technology.
