I received an email from Schitt/Jason today, preorder for the Gungnir is now open and shipping next week!

Have anybody tested, is Bifrost sensitive to the quality of usb to spdif converters? I have a USB version, so never tried SPDIF, but increasing quantity of reviews saying that coax input is quite better stimulated me smile.gif

Actually, when they sayt the DACs click do they mean u hear it from the headphones? or is it just a click coming from the dac externally (not sure how to word this XD)

My Bifrost clicked through the headphones I think. I mostly use open cans so it's hard to remember. 

 

But you do hear the mute/relay audbily coming from Bifrost externally.

Ah, ok. I dont mind an external mute/relay but sudden muting of my music would be quite annoying :x

No, that mute/relay is upon turn on and shut off. Turn on Bifrost 20 secs later you'll hear the click.

 

You'll get the clicking through the headphones upon pausing a song or having no audio playing.  Like a nice irritating reminder

that Bifrost wants to be fed.

Clicking noise comes from the DAC not through your headphones.

I only get a click from the actual DAC, nothing through the headphones.

post #2892 of 3320

the clicking is out of control. it drives me nuts. i hear clicking every time i hit the back button in an internet browser among many other normal computer processes.

Yeah, it clicks at sound start and stop to mute and unmute itself, just disable Windows sounds or have music playing and it shouldn't anymore.

I run system sounds through the computer's internal speaker so it doesn't interfere with the music/DAC.
