Schiit Gungnir DAC - Page 108

post #1606 of 1607

FWIW, I have the Bifrost Uber and the Gungnir. To my ears, the Uber actually sounds a little more grainy than the Gungnir. The latter is my DAC at home and the former is what I use at work (due to smaller footprint). Gungnir delivers a relatively more forceful lower end extension and as Solude pointed out somewhere, is ideally suited to pair with the Mjolnir amp. But I also use the Gungnir SE with the HD 800 and the BH Crack amp or the Schiit Vali (both of which are SE). No issues there at all.

Personally, I found the Bifrost Uber to sound very much like what I remembered the first gen Gungnir's SE output to sound like. Neither DAC is particularly detailed or bright, but they're quite musical and non-fatiguing.

 

Take this for what it's worth, since it's based on audio memory (I still own the Bifrost Uber, but not the Gungnir and did not have them at the same time).
