I would say 24/192 or basically the DAC component. If one is spending this much money you might as well just go for the best anyways. The E9 is a good amp and if need be I can always upgrade to a better one.

Just asked the question on a new thread instead. But just chiming in to say, this looks like an absolutely beautiful product. Hopefully it sounds as good as it looks!

I really really want a Bifrost, but I want to see what the midrange product has to offer. Should I wait? Should I buy now? This sucks.

Well, who knows when the statement dac will come. Probably near Q2 or end of this year. Can you wait that long? :)

post #245 of 326

I don't know if I can wait, but I also don't want to buy now and then have to re-buy later.

It's the HE-6. The headphone stand was $50 on amazon and it turned out it wasn't tall enough to put the headphones on upright, so I kind of have to hang them sideways. :/

All in all, it's overly small and cheap. It came in pieces and I had to glue it all together myself. Now, I wish I would've spent more time/money on a better one.

You get 8 of them for $50 on amazon. Right now it looks like they are out of stock on the gold ones. But PartsExpress has some silver/black models too.

A customized version of the "Molecule" cable from DoubleHelix. It's around $220.

Personally, I'm not a huge cable guy. But after going through THREE of the stock HE-6 cables I was getting really tired of having my cable short out on me. Honestly though, I work from home and I'm on my computer for hours on end. I just don't think the stock HE6 cable was meant to withstand that much abuse.

 

Also, I expected the Bifrost to run much warmer than it does. It's nearly cold to the touch. Whereas the Lyr is pumping heat out like nobodys business.

Where are the reviews?

post #253 of 326

Of the bifrost? Start here - post 1 - look in the reviews and impressions links. Skylab wrote a full review too (search in reviews).

post #254 of 326

 Hey guys, I have a few questions about the Bifrost...

 

1) Does the Bifrost automatically detect the bitrate of the media file and adjust accordingly?

 

2) Is the Bifrost a worthy upgrade from the Asus Essence ST?

 

3) Any comments on Bifrost => Meier Concerto => Hd800 synergy?  I am concerned about sibilance issues...

 

4) Somewhat wrong place, for this but...Can I use a software equalizer w/ an external DAC like the bifrost?  If not possible or impractical, what alternative hardware options are there?

 

Thanks... I been deciding between Bifrost, PS Audio Digital Link III, and Meier Stagedac

 

EDIT: Oh and I read Aidee's review, very helpful thanks...
