post #1951 of 1962

R2R by itself means nothing as far as space requirements.

And I am sure my wallet will be weeping, when I get the new upgraded Gungnir.

Is it confirmed it will be an upgrade and just not Gungnir 2 or something stupid?

Nothing has been confirmed as to upgrades, but I highly doubt it will be Gungnir 2. All of the "2" models were never designed to be upgradeable. Also, they have already created one upgrade without changing the model and that was for USB Gen 1 to USB Gen 2.

 

We just need to wait to see what the upgrades are, but I think it's a safe bet that one of those will be USB Gen 3. As for the DAC's there's only been speculation.

Thanks for the link / information.  Will be interesting to see where this goes.

I'm a happy Gungnir 1 owner but when I heard the Yggr at the Nashville meet, it was quite a bit better.

My new WA7+WA7tp eagerly await the DAC upgrades to my Gungnir. SF Meet up was a blast! Sorry nobody at Schiit really had anything new to say about the upgrades.

Does it matter if I have something on top of the holes on the top of the Gungnir? I know people have been stacking the Mjolnir on top of it but just want to make sure... I mean aren't those holes for ventilation?

Those holes don't go through. They're only for show haha.

Excellent timing. I suspect my Gungnir's USB input might be flaky and came here to see if there was a USB Gen 3 coming soon. I can definitely go optical for a few weeks while the product line sorts itself out.
