Wow! 24/192 usb for only $450? Haha I might have to sell my dac and buy one of these. I'm certainly interested. I like the modular design... man I hate head-fi sometimes... need more money.... If this dac is this great already maybe i'll wait for the higher end dac I can only imagine what the specs on that will be haha.

Glad I stayed up lol!

Wow I'm in love with the specs!  AKM4399, that's the chip used in Cary dacs.  Bitperfect = no upsampling  Woot!

Really happy they made USB optional, I have no use for it and for 100 bucks less!  

Gonna put in my preorder later today :D

Only downside is Aug 31 shipping :(

Okay, so we missed a bit and you found it early. Cool! 

 

Now the FAQ and press release are up too. You heard it here first!

post #202 of 3320
Wow, very exciting news.

So I can order the bifrost without USB module and if I need it later just order the USB module? Not the upgrade but the standard? Will you sell it separate?

Can I stack the DAC under my Valhalla/Asgard or does it run hot too :-)

It's gonna be a long wait I guess until this thing arrives with your international distributors?

thanks a lot!!

Haha, Jason, you guy's are awesome.  I wish all businesses were ran by people like you.  I only wish I'd be home for when that package arrives.  My only question is what do I do with my Xonar Essence STX now? lol

 

Oh by the way, just happened to notice this typo:

 

"IMPORTANT: Bifrost is in pre-order. We expect to ship beginning August 31, 2001."

Jason,

Any chance of your top end DAC making an appearance at RMAF (prototype or otherwise)?

Thanks

lucky number #8 w/USB.

 

I believe that 8 is a lucky number in China... which I'm thinking is a sign that I should also be ordering HE-500. If you try hard enough you can convince yourself of anything ;)
