Any comparisons of Bifrost 2 MB DAC vs Gungnir MB DAC?
(sorry if I have missed these)

Both have great layering and imaging, both are very detailed and have great bass and extension.
Gungnir has a leaner tonality, is a bit more detailed and has a tad bigger soundstage to the sides and really popping transients (can be fatiguing).
Bifrost is smoother, has bit a blacker background, and is tonally very close to the Yggdrasil A2.
Bifrost is smaller, has a remote and is modularly upgradeable (Gumby is upgradeable too but has to be sent in).

Both are great DAC's, deciding factors should be synergy and space/formfactor.
So, the more important question is what comes after your DAC. Which amp and what headphone/speaker?

No problem of course.
You want to know something about cats, woodworking, mayonaise, bbq, underwear, false teeth etc. this is the place to be.
I missed the false teeth debate? Crap, I mean, Schiit!

Congratulations to Jason on his thread reaching 4,000 pages. :beerchug:

Also best wishes to all those who regularly contribute to the thread, occasionally even posting about Schiit products. :astonished:
And look, closing in on 60,000 posts (that's 60k for you Millennials). My son nearly schiit his pants when I told him how long this thread is (he's been getting Schiit for Christmas for a couple of years now). He's been reading it, though.

Has anyone here done a lengthy comparison of Yiggy A2 versus BF2 on a 2.0 speaker setup, both being fed by Unison and using SE outputs?

I just ordered the Modius. I also placed an order for balanced and RCA cables on Amazon.

Excited to get this new DAC and pair it with Lyr 3 and Jot.

More car expenses may be looming so I held off on the Bifrost for now. It'll be there if I change my mind later.

That's funny I'm in the exact same boat. Got some car stuff coming up so "settled" for a modius for now.
