Has the gungnir undergone any usb upgrades since release or has it remained the same? Same question for the uber upgrade on this dac.
There has been one USB upgrade since the Gungnir was originally released.... there has been no uber-type upgrades that I know of..in fact the uberFrost was based on the Gungnir (if I recollect correctly)...
Well, fellas, it'll soon be time for me to receive my Gungnir in the mail directly from Schiit via Amazon. I got the USB version, and will be using that connection primarily. I will be using a Windows 7 PC ----> USB ----> Gungnir ----> Bottlehead Crack (Speedplay) ----> Sennheiser HD-650s. I was wondering if anyone here uses this combo, and how it works for them. Please drop a line with impressions, suggestions, potential hurdles etc. A couple of years ago, I had an LCD 2 Rev. 2 coupled with a Red Wine Audio Isabellina HPA/DAC. I really enjoyed that setup but had to take a hiatus from it due to travel. Now, I am back, looking to obtain that same level of sound, but economically smarter. Reading the comments on here and around the web, I get the impression the Gungnir should punch above its price point to the level of the Isabellina DAC. I also suspect it will have the same sound signature; very organic, realistic timbre, great palpable mid-range, tamed highs. Any input would be appreciated.
It will but should get the USB upgrade if using USB. Well worth it.
The question was whether there was an upgrade from release? The one you bought would not have one.
My answer was in response to this, which quoted me. It sounded more like a suggestion than a question.
If anyone was wondering how I'm getting along with my Gungnir, since I never got back on here to followup..............I'm loving it. I also got the Wyrd in the mix, and it definitely improves things even further. Of course, this is IMO, YMMV etc.
