Any reply will be appreciated.biggrin.gif

If you care about hi-res stuff, use USB. Macs only go up to 96k via optical. Not something I care about, but FYI.

I'm trying to decide between an Uber Bifrost and a Gungnir.  Can anyone with firsthand experience of both shed some light?  I can't find much online.  I understand Gungnir has XLR outs but I would mostly be using it single ended through a tube preamp.

Think about it the other way - is there any particular reason to get a Gungnir? From what you said it doesn't seem so.

The Gungnir has a better digital board while the Bifrost Uber shares the same analog board.  Think PS Audio PerfectWave DAC versus a PerfectWave DAC2.  Same analog section, different digital.  Gungnir also has the better power supply and tighter timing for the digital side.  Like they say... if you can afford the Gungnir, even single ended, get the Gungnir.

I want one of these bad boys soo bad for my WA2.

I've been using the gungnir for about 7 months using only the se outputs and it sounds great no doubt an improvement over the modi but if I could go back I would get the uber frost and save 330 bucks . The main reason for this is the space it takes up on my desk second is knowing now that I may never use balanced it seems kind of overkill.

The Gungnir is well worth the money IMHO. Looking forward to the Yggy though. Balanced is the way to go.

+1. IMO, the improvement in SQ from SE to balanced is noticeable.
