Gungnir vs audio-gb nfb-1 - Page 2

post #16 of 17

 If nothing else the circuitry of the Audio GD dacs are a thing of beauty, especially with those power supplies. The gungnir is a far from bit perfect dac which is kind of turning me off to it. I'd do a trial purchase of yggy if I were you since it claims to be the first "true" bit perfect dac and I've heard multiple people state that it can perform as well as the dacs in the $30k+ range, it doesn't even do DSD and it still has a $2300 price tag so there's gotta be somethin' good under the hood. Then again I was disappointed after all the HE1000 hype so who knows.

Thanks for the thoughts, and yes the Yggy is high up there for my consideration. I couldn't give a hoot about DSD and I'm glad Schiit isn't wasting money on it as in my mind their efforts are better spent elsewhere. I think it is supposed to be more than $2300 isn't it? I like that number better mind you.
