Schiit Owners Unite - Page 352

post #5266 of 7921

OK, I have decided to complete my headphones Schiit stack first - Bifrost Uber USB coming my way now. :D

My Gungnir seems to provide what I would say is articulate detail retrieval and now that I have gotten the new USB module installed is very nice. HOWEVER I have not auditioned any other dacs so take that with a grain of salt. For what it's worth etc. Running balanced throughput over Silver Widow to LCD3s. For the money spent I think it would be kind of difficult to do better. Obviously when rising up the food chain and getting into the really expensive components the SQ will get better but at this price level I am really happy with my system. Really recommend getting the USB upgrade BTW. With JRiver 19 all data transfers are just really clean; I can really tell the difference.

You will not be dissapointed, it's good Schiit. The USB implementation seems to be spot on. The Windoze drivers that Schitt supplies (download) works well and has some interesting enhancements found in their properties. If you need to boost bass, that can be found there, freq and level.

I see they also have native USB ASIO implementation, which is nice. WASAPI has always been a bit quirky.

I believe it. As did I when I tried a Gungnir/ Mjolnir combo with some Mad Dog Pros.

 

A difference indeed.

No worries, I have it under control... now, on a quest to get a Gungnir... Need to take a strategic pause.

I had the MF VDAC in my main rig, and when I replaced it with Bifrost everything sounded better, more natural, etc.

Dude! I got my Vali to make a bedroom system for my sennheisers, because of knee surgery recovery too. It helped!

So let me get this straight.  If you have a bad knee, the fix is a piece of Schiit?  :biggrin:
