Hi. I'm currently in the market for a new DAC/amp combo and have arrived at two choices. Option 1 is the Naim Dac-V1. Auditioned at a local dealer and know I like pretty much everything about it but it does have lots of additional inputs I won't ever need. Option 2 is a Schiit Asgard 2/Bifrost Uber USB 2.0. Limited availability in the UK and would have to order without hearing. Does anyone have experience of the two systems? The Schiit gear is half the price but is it half the SQ? I know they're pretty much aimed at different markets and the Schiit gear is more sensibly priced but don't mind spending the extra for the Naim if it means I'm not going to be itching to upgrade again in 12 months. Any opinions or experiences would be welcome.
