Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 24

post #346 of 3320

What I really want to know is where are the Schiit Shirts and Schiity hats?

 

That would be a good toss in for someone who spends around 1k plus.  Also for the rest of us who just plain want some schiit.

The highest-end dac isn't supposed to be balanced, is it? I hope not...

I would suspect the top of the line DAC would have both single-ended and balanced outputs.

Why no shots of the internals or the business end of the new Bifrost?

 

As soon as someone buys one they will be posting inside shots, rear etc. anyways so no need to keep it a secret.

No grand conspiracy here--we just don't want to post pix of ugly green-board protos. When the final red boards are here, you bet there will be pix, as we always supply to everyone who's interested.

 

Back shot? Those aren't shots--those are renderings. We didn't do a back rendering. But if you close your eyes and imagine a black back panel with one coax, one tos, one USB, and one set of RCA outputs, together with a power switch and an IEC inlet, there you go. Nothing special.

 

And a couple other answers:

 

1. Top-end DAC will have balanced and single-ended outputs. 

 

2.Shirts, yep, we have to do that.

 

3. All Bifrosts will have 3 LEDs on the front, but if you don't get USB, it'll skip that input.

 

Hope this helps!

A Head-Fi'ers thirst for knowledge about a new release can never be quenched. Thanks for trying anyway Jason. I'm looking for a new DAC, however, the criticism that I often see of them including the newer models utilising Delta chips, is a tendency to be extremely detailed but at the expense of "musicality".

 

Terms such as digital "sheen" or "glare", are employed by reviewers to describe the undesirable consequences of the implementation of this technology on musical reproduction. It must be a challenge for audio designers to balance the advantages that the latest technology offers, with designing and manufacturing a high fidelity DAC that is also pleasing to the ear.

 

Schiit's forthcoming statement DAC promises to be a ground breaking, value for money product, but I was wondering what informs Schiit's approach to DAC design with regard to the reproduction of music?

4 pin works for me...and there are relatively inexpensive dual 3-pin to 4-pin adapters out there.  Single ended out would be nice tho...to listen to single ended cans would be great.

post #359 of 3320

3-4 pin adapter will just kill what ever advantage the 4 pin is likely to have.

 

Most adapters are made out of the worst materials, plus you just ad another connection [weak] point.
