Schiit Gungnir DAC - Page 107

post #1591 of 1602

Hey guys,

 

The balanced output for the Gungnir, does it use gold or silver contacts?

To be fair, the jury is still out on the Mytek. I'll probably post comparative impressions once it gets here, but it's a shame I won't have them side-by-side. I didn't expect the Gungnir to sell as fast as it did. 

No impressions yet ?

The pins on the LXR outs are gold plated.

Sadly these are backordered due to parts shortage. I ordered mine and am waiting. The Mjolnir arrived today. Audeze LCD3 by Friday. But sadly will have to wait a while.

Cannot wait to start listening to this set up.

The Gungnir beat out the more than twice as expensive Bryston BDA-1 in my system (Parasound A21, (preamp varies) Magnepan 1.7 and Velodyne DD-12) I think you'll find it well worth the wait. :D

 

Good luck and I hope you get yours soon!

Ah..nice...you know now I want it even more.

My M/G stack are really nice sounding. I have used them for many thousands of hours of listening with all the Audeze cans I have ownedand always performed flawlessly. IMHO for the money spent, just can't beat these two components. Even though I have a Ragnarok on order, IF I was not up grading (out of curiosity more than anything else) there really is no reason to HAVE to upgrade. I am sure there is better to be had but not for the money spent. You get right into the point of rapidly diminishing returns I think. I think I will keep my Mjo when I get the Rag and then when I can  get the Yggy will use the Gungnir/Mjolnir as a second system in the RV. That says a lot that I would rather keep my G/M stack than sell them... BTW might want to lookinto adding the Wyrd for a c-note as it really helps clean up [possible] less than perfect data flow via USB. Made a really noticeable difference to SQ from my chain.

Nods, the Gung Mjol combo really hits the spot.  The Gung is slightly dark, the Mjol slightly bright but together... magic.

I would like to hear your impressions on your Gungnir and Ragnarok ( when it arrives) combination.

Yeah I am curious as to how the G will pair up with the rag also. Right now the G/M with the X are just a really sweet setup. Very happy with the SQ... :L3000:

+1. And with the Wyrd arriving today, a very nice combo became not-subtly better.
