Schiit Gungnir DAC - Page 52

post #766 of 1657

Yep - I use the Transporter as a digital preamp. BNC to the Gungnir. The Gungnir direct to the power amp. I know, much said about digital attenuation. I upsample redbook to 24/96 with Sox so I dont notice any problems with loss of S/N ratio, dynamic range etc. Very happy, and surprised. Next step is to upgrade the balanced interconnect. I'm sure I can get some mileage out of that.

A few quick questions I was hoping to get some help with... 

 

 

1) The BNC SPDiF uses the same digital signal as the RCA SPDiF, correct?

 

2) If so, I can get a BNC to RCA cable or adapter and run a second RCA digital source to a Gungnir, correct?

 

3) If the above are correct, anyone have any recommendations in the  <$50 range?

 

 

Thanks in advance!

I decided to go straight to the source (no pun intended)...  According to Jason over at Schiit, the digital signal through BNC is identical to the RCA digital.  A BNC to RCA adaptor/cable can allow for a second RCA SPDIF input into the Gungnir.  I figured I would post this in case anyone was wondering or is looking for this info in the future...

 

Cheers!

The whole point of going BNC is that it can comply with 75ohm, and RCA mostly cannot! No other difference.

Wow maybe the new XDA-2 would work better as a pre amp?

Hello, the Gungnir is one of the DAC's I'm considering. I plan to go USB out from my computer to the DAC. I will use single ended at first from the DAC but want balanced capability as a potential upgrade path. I am considering Musical fidelity M1, Audio-GD Ref 5.32, Audio-gd NFB-1.32 , and Yulong Sabre D18. I would love to hear comparisons between these DAC's and the Gungnir if anyone has had them in their system. Thanks, Garth

I ordered the gungnir and mjolnir on december 3rd, going on a month now. Anyone else patiently waiting for them to come out of backorder? The wait wasn't that bad at first but now with the crazy holidays over I really want my Schiit.

Orders won't ship until the end of December. Per Schiit's website. Give in 1-2 weeks.

I feel you, I've been checking the status on the website nearly every morning recently. My current setup iphone->lcd3. Needless to say I'm ready for the mjolnir/gungnir combo to ship out

I don't know why you're impatient. Seems like your current set up should be fine :-)
