Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 3

post #31 of 3320

im patiently waiting for Schiit's DAC also @_@

post #32 of 3320

I would bet that it will be the size of an Asgard with more schiit on the back if I did not have to recuse myself.

Okay, I'll play.

 

$150-200 DAC? Nope, not a chance. At least not matching the current line. Plus, Mike would kill me. 

 

Combined amp/DAC? Nope, we're not huge fans of multi-megahertz hash cruising around near sensitive analog electronics. There are too many compromises in a combined amp/DAC, in our opinion.

Good no combined amp that's a good sign I'm hoping for a high end model in the 800-1000 dollar range then I may have a reason to switch from my tube dac..

Thats great...Less is more, and more from having less is Mo' Better!!

 

USB is the work of the Devil....it should not be in audio but is a necessary evil to sale a product these days.  USB is for keyboards and printers not audio gear.

 

Stick with a simple design that focuses on the powersupply...you are what you eat.

 

Good Luck!

How about a re-boxed Theta Cobalt 307?  biggrin.gif

 

I still use my Cobalt.

Hi Jason

 

When do you think that you will be able to provide more details so that people know what they are saving for?  I realise that you need to keep some details secret to retain the competitive advantage of bringing those features to market but is there anything else that you can tell right now?

 

Do you have some performance benchmarks that you are aiming for or a product design brief etc?

 

Keep the great stuff coming. I am truly a fan.

On the verge of pulling the trigger and then I see this. Subscribed. Oh, and USB is fine by me. evil_smiley.gif

All will be revealed in June!

 

Well, at least all on our intro product. But we'll also provide a brief roadmap on the others as well.

 

As far as USB goes . . . well, yep, we'll have USB, and it'll be a good implementation, but the two other SPDIF inputs will still outperform it. As someone here mentioned, USB is a *general* data interface, great for printers and external hard drives. SPDIF is a dedicated audio interface.

Looking forward to June. :)

 

I wonder if it's all solid state or if there's a tube DAC in the lineup..

USB + something nice, at office I only have USB :)

post #44 of 3320

Thanks for the reply.  At least June is rapidly approaching. 

 

I get the feeling that God has sent you to teach me patience....rolleyes.gif
