Based off of the bifrost's serial do you guys know which ones after will have the Uber Chip or the AK4490 chip?

Also, if you upgrade to Bifrost Multibit does schiit ship you back your old ak4399 or ak4490 chip?



I don't know about Bifrosts, but when I upgraded my Gungnir to multi-bit, I did not get the old parts shipped back to me.

Hi. I need help.
It's about fulla. I got the otg cable and hook up. But no sound from fulla.
What is the problem?
I'm using Samsung s6 btw.

Thank you

With my s5 and my s7e I need to use USB Audio Player Pro to get sound from external DAC/Amps.

The point, just about halfway...
So if I have a bifrost with an ak4399 bifrost, I should upgrade straight to multibit instead of making a stop at the ak4490 board?

Yes. Multibit is where it's at.

I used to own the Bifrost 4490 and I prefer my Modi Multibit to it.
the modi multibit is a great piece of gear, especially for the price of admission. I have Yggdrasil's on both speaker rigs, on the headphone rig is a modi multibit, and it's a great sound. Modi Multibit to Jot to HD650, a great little headphone rig.

I just got a Jotunheim with the Multibit dac installed. I think its sounds great with the Beyerdynamic T1. I especially enjoy the mid range.

I’m now kitted out with the following little silver boxes: Modi Multibit, Sys (to patch in an RCA path from my multiband radio), a Loki Mini, and a Magni 3. These are mighty fine electronics. Perhaps I’ll get used to the amount of heat released by these devices - unnerving. They’re also my first experience with VAC wall warts.

In my Office I run a Jot /Bimby combo that sound quite nice....I leave them on 24/7 as they are always ready to go with my Audioengine A5+ speakers or my Headphones using Roon as a source.

I have a Modi 2 and Magni 3, but thinking of getting a Bifrost 4490 just because of the Gen 5 USB and the modularity. I keep trying all these other DACs and amps, but the Schiit stack has become the standard by which I judge all the others.

I have a Valhalla 2 that I either hook up to the home stereo (via line out) to play vinyl or Spotify/MPD trough a Peachtree Audio Dac*ITx, or to the laptop via a Modi 2 USB.

I am thinking about upgrading my rega fono mini A2D to a Mani, but it seems to be on backorder so no idea when electromod (schiit "dealer" in the UK) will stock them again.
