That would be an interesting comparison. I suspect the dac1541 will still pull ahead in terms of absolute clarity and resolution, and maybe incisiveness and "blackground" ... but I'd bet it's by a lot smaller margin than it was when I last had them side-by-side. Not bad, given the 2x price delta. The dac1421 is, to be fair, the single-ended-sonic-equivalent of the dac1541 for $900 and perhaps a more relevant comparison to the Bifrost MB. But that still puts both price/value and the "Moffat" bottom-end in favor of the "new" Schiit unit.
