Well... kind of disappointed by the Gungnir after reading conquerator2 review ! :( But I guess I would not notice the difference. You seem to have a lot more experience than me in sound !!
Still freaking about passing my order to Schiit... Damn this is pricey (2000$ CND for Gungnir + Asgard 2 + Wyrd) :(
Keep your Asgard 2. I wouldn't go on too fast to get rid of the Gungnir. Look through Audiogon/Canuck Audio Mart/eBay and you can still score yourself a nice vintage DAC to compare to the Gungnir. If you like the other DAC more it isn't that hard to sell a Gungnir since they are very popular and have more resolution than the Bifrost Uber by a slight degree.
Here's a few songs for those with a Theta to listen to and get awe-struck:
Fleetwood Mac- Hypnotized
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
The Doors - Riders on the Storm
Nirvana - Lithium **edit** just listened to this, WOW didn't know so much was on 16-bit redbook. From the cymbals hitting ever so naturally throughout the song, nothing ever came off as unnatural to me.
great soundstage tests
