Some real photos of Bifrost (yes, including the back panel) are up on the site!

 

We'll have photos of the production guts shortly . . .

 

All the best,

Jason


If you reread what Jason wrote it did state that it would be uploaded later

anyone?

Hey Jason, any info on when you guys will have an announcement ready for the upcoming balanced Dacs and amps?

post #830 of 3320

I wonder if the mid-range balanced DAC will have RCA outputs too.

post #831 of 3320
Of course it will have.
post #832 of 3320

re: the poster who asked if the balanced DAC will also have RCA outputs - Jason confirmed not too far back that it will have both balanced and unbalanced outputs, so yes.

 

I'm more interested in seeing how the modular aspects of the Bifrost will come into play - I had assumed that you would slide the "cards" in and out from the rear of the Bifrost with the help of some tools, but it appears (unless I'm just not seeing something) that that isn't the case and we'll be opening the chassis up, when the time eventually comes, for modifications. I guess that question would be more pertinent to those of us who opt out of USB and decide to get a USB "board" later on - will the USB port in the picture above just be "blocked off" for those who opt out of USB for now, kind of like an unused PCI slot on a PC chassis/case?

Price seems fairly reasonable, so what's the consensus about the upgradeable DAC? Is it going to be expensive to upgrade?

I personally dont have any issue at all with opening the case. If it just plugs in I dont think it matters how you open it. And if you search Jasons posts in this thread and the other Bifrost thread I know he answered that question about the usb port if you dont have it included. I think it was the post where he asks us to close our eyes and then he lists how the back would be configured. It was a while ago though.

Have you noticed that the Bifrost has changed from Pre-order to Buy.  It also says that any orders placed now should ship about two weeks after end of the month.  That is good news as it should mean that existing orders will be shipped before then.  Awesome.  More Schiit in the house!!

 

I really need to start saving hard for the statement rig.  That is going to take my toy fund to the limit if I include the options.....

post #836 of 3320

Looking forward to that Statement rig as well. Some really good Schiit coming up!

post #837 of 3320

Gutz man. Letz c sum gutz!

post #838 of 3320

Amazing how many people bought the product before seeing what's inside :). Pics or didn't happen!

post #839 of 3320

Are you kidding lol?

 

EDIT.  Ok, I see your happy face now. I didnt notice it before. But yeah, it would be nice to see pics but with these guys experience I am not worried about it at all.
