Do you have a phono pre-amp you plan to use for this?

Yep. Turntable → Phono Stage → ADC (Schiit?) → Laptop →  Software.

Mid september is really a long wait. Could really use this thing before that :/

will the bifrost be able to pair with a squeezebox touch as a transport? i read somewhere that no all DACs work well with the sbt..

Any indication as to why it wouldn't work with some DACs? On paper SBT has coax and optical SPDIF outputs for 16/24bit and the usual compliment of sample rates, so.... doesn't seem to be any reason in principle it wouldn't be fine with Bifrost.

I'd still like an official answer as to if these should be stacked or not, meaning the schiit DAC on their amp or vice versa. I don't have much desk space and they would look nice one on top of the other.

 

I'm sure the engineers themselves would know if their products would be prone to interference with one another.

Shoot Jason an email.  I think that's quicker and easier for them.

Yeah... and please share the answer :)

I would think with amp on top and some extra spacers stacking should be fine.

so how is the email coming with the info on stacking the combo?

I would like to know if any of the Schiit DAC models will feature at least one analog in? I'd like to connect my phono stage to it. Most DACs are designed around two-channel operation so I find it interesting that only a few offer analog in. I suppose most people go straight into a pre-amp with their phono stage instead?

You'd be better off with an additional input in the amp, this is more common as well but not in Schitt's lineup (yet).

On top is fine--and we love Lyr with our T1s--but then again, we're biased!

> New audiophile here, was looking at your products for my first desktop system to pair with a Beyerdynamic T1.  Have limited space in my room so I was considering stacking the Lyr on top of the Bifrost (I understand the footprint is identical from the website).  Also hear the Lyr can run quite hot at times, do you think this would be of concern in stacking the two?  Also, any idea how the T1 would pair with the products?
