Certainly is tempting to replace my HDP with a Bifrost, but not having an analog input is a non-starter for me with my setup, however I do understand the entry level aspect.  Hope the next models have this feature. 

post #365 of 3320

Eh, this is a DAC not a preamp.  I don't believe you will find this feature ever.

Is the Paypal feature where you get charged when item is shipped implemented/working?

I doubt it. I'm sure Jason would have posted to let us know.  Also he said he was going to give those who already purchased via Pay-Pal (a.k.a me) the chance to re-order and not pay until it was shipped.....I haven't gotten any info.

Hey guys,

 

Yep, the "authorize only, charge only when shipped" deal is working on PayPal (basically, now we're only using them for processing, but the account and everything is on our site.)

 

We'll be contacting everyone on Tuesday after the holiday and canceling/re-placing orders--I'll go change the site FAQ about ordering right now.

 

All the best,

Jason

Great Jason!

 

1) You should consider also Amazon Payments... I have used it and is IMHO better than Google Checkout

2) I see no Google Checkout there (or I didn't in the morning)

3) No plans for Lyr+Bifrost combo deals?

yea for the kind of functionality you desire a switch before the amp would work best.  Since this has no volume control volume control an analog input would be useless.

post #371 of 3320

Hooked, To have an Analog input would either make it a Preamp, Integrated Amp, Headphone Amp, or have it including a ADC (Analog to Digital Converter). More and more Integrated Amps and Headphone Amps are including a DAC (Usually cheaply implemented), but since Schiit labels and is marketing the Bifrost as a DAC, and they market their own range of Headphone Amplifiers it's not likely that you'll see a Jack of all trades (Master of None!) product out of Schiit anytime soon.

 

The HDP is such a Jack of All Trades product. It's  versatile and surprisingly good considering it's an all in one unit with an ultra cheap external power supply. For higher performance separates are the way to go, at least that has always been my findings. Not to mention the whole Made in the USA thing.

post #372 of 3320

A couple of quick answers:

 

1. No combo deals, unless we're allowed to raise the price on the products to the levels they should sell at, then provide a discount from there. Kidding, of course.

2. No analog inputs on any DAC product, no volume controls, nothing preamplifierish. Too many compromises. 

3. No Amazon Payments or Google right now--they don't integrate well with the new cart. The current system allows you to pay with a credit card or PayPal account, which'll have to be enough for now. 

 

And now, off to get stuff ready for watching fireworks tonight!

 

Best,

Jason

Jason,

Time to update this part of your FAQ, since you now have your own DACs:

Sure it would.

Also, now that Google payments are not an option, I assume orders already placed with Google are fine?

Thanks.

Yep, no problem on that front! We'll try to put it back in the future, but it just doesn't want to do international shipments for the moment.
