Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 219

post #3271 of 3320
I don't have 24bit/88.2khz and 24bit/176.4khz and I have the gen2 usb board. I have some 24bit 88.2khz music that i want to play. Is the bifrost capable of outputing 24/88?
post #3272 of 3320
Yes, Bifrost is capable of those rates. Have you tried a player like foobar2000 to see if it will work?
post #3273 of 3320
Sorry, DP.

Cool, thanks.

Installed my uber last night. Sounds very bright but it could just need a good burn in.

 

Can anyone that has both the optical and usb connection explain the main differences sound wise. Is there a loss in clarity or tonal change? Is it worth upgrading to a usb?

LOL very_evil_smiley.gif Check the Schiit Owners Unite thread rrahman (Keep up with your Schiit man!). We've been raising the price together. It should now be like $50,000 a piece upon release.

Has anyone used the bifrost with a v200 or burson soloist? Im loving the new uber board and really want to save some money while driving my hd800's to the max. 

post #3284 of 3320
I've got a V100. Closest I come to the HD800 is the T1 (which I'm sure many would say isn't close at all). Don't know whether this would help?

However...still a few days before I change-in the uber board and at least a week before I would try the above combo. Taboo/LCD2; Meier Classic/LCD2; Classic/T1 are ahead in the queue.

Can you burn in a DAC by playing music but shutting off the headphone amplifier? I prefer not to leave the Valhalla on for 48+ hours straight...
