post #2041 of 6205

Anybody else get their Bifrost with Uber setup and listened to? I get mine on monday and this is my first bifrost, so I really compare it to much. I would love to hear some impressions of the bifrost with uber compared to the Gungnir.

Yeah I am interested in a Bifrost/Gungnir comparison as well. As someone who has done the upgrade to the "uber" board, I have to say it is a huge improvement over the vanilla Bifrost. I am just wondering how close it comes to Gungnir. As a side note, the "uber" is a lot less forgiving with low quality source files, some of my older collection of mp3s are definitely going to need to be revisited and re-ripped. They aren't unlistenable or anything, but this version of Bifrost is much much more revealing. I no longer feel any need to upgrade my DAC, headphones or amp, but my source files need a serious audit right now.

How is it less forgiving? It doesn't brighten them up, does it? I like a dark, warm, sound signature.

Question for the Schiit folks out there.

 

 

For the DAC.  Any info if there will be a IS2 input of anykind in the DAC?

For anyone who owns the Schiit Bifrost and would like to upgrade the analog board (aka "Uber"), I've posted a pictorial guide on how to DIY here:

No, it isn't bright, just more resolving.  You can tell if your source is a low quality mp3 just because of the enhanced DAC resolution.  Your Schiit won't sound awful, but you'll want to re-rip if you can.
