I can’t wait to buy it, but will probably wait until the second or third production run. I’ve received my Schiit 2 channel stack (Bimby and Mani into Saga into Vidar). I’m incredibly pleased. The Bifrost MB is still coming into its own. I can certainly hear a difference between the Passive and the tube (Tung Sol new 6SN7) buffer, and the remote and volume control is slick. Vidar is driving power to my speakers in the best way I’ve ever heard them, but (and this is a biggish but for me), I hear transformer hum/buzz (not through the speakers, but from the unit itself). I believed these issues had been worked out, bur apparently not. I’m curious if Jason Stoddard has any suggestions to try first (screws on the bottom of the amp? Should I play with these to see if it goes away?). Mani, I’m torn on. I have a “better” Phono Pre (Lounge LCR mk3), which I’m going to be sending to the manufacturer for a wire upgrade, so I added Mani to try a different stage and to act as a stop gap. I like the clarity of the sound, but it sounds almost unnatural compared to the Lounge. Hyper detail and Tipped up treble rather than smooth natural detail I hear from the Lounge. It’s worth an audition, and I’ll be keeping it with the expectation it will burn in over time and will serve as a great stage while my Lounge is getting some new intestines. Super happy. I can’t believe how much better Bifrost MB is than my previous DAC.
