How is the AdaptiClock working?  Does it do a good job of recognizing poor quality sources and high quality sources?  It will be interesting to see which transports make the 'buy better gear' light turn on.

I updated my Eximus vs. Gungnir comments regarding detail. They are pretty damn close. The Eximus has more forward mids and crispier upper treble so on some songs they sound a little different. I will dig up some suggested songs to A/B and update some more.

Oh, and since someone asked... I would get the Mjolnir/Gungnir way way way before thinking about getting the Eximus with built-in HPA.

does anyone ordering the gungnir have a ref 5?  i would be very interested to hear how these 2 compare as i am in the market for a balanced dac.

 

cheers

I have a ref5se and ref150, and ordered a gungnir last week. I also was looking for a balanced dac. I am using a Metrum Octave now, which I find to be excellent. For comparison, I have had a few pricy dacs in the past, and tried a Bifrost for a bit. I did like the Bifrost for several attributes, but preferred the Octave overall for its increased resolution and lack of any signature.

Does anyone know if the Gungnir is non-upsampling like the Bifrost?

post #128 of 1657

I don't think Gungnir upsamples.  Something about white guys not being able to dance.

Gungnir doesn't upsample.

 

 

So far impressed with both Schiit stacks. It's still early on, but these are keepers.

How do you reach the volume know if you are right handed? Cable seems to be in the way

Left handed here, but use my right hand for volume control. There's about a 2 finger spacing between the pot and cable.

It has posed no issue for me, being non-fat-fingered. tongue.gif

Stack looks good! That thing really needs a turntable on top....in silver of course.  cool.gif  Still has my favorite volume pot of all time...

As far as I know, upsampling causes Mike to break out in hives....

How can one argue with that. The pot is really nice, glad Schiit stepped it up from Lyr.

 

 

 

Here I thought it caused him to turn green. HULK SMASH!

Looking very nice, paradoxper. :) Thumbs up. And more important; hope it suits your ears as well.

Thanks Loevhagen. There's some needed smoothing out still. Other than that, I'm quite enthralled.
