Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    Well, i would b pairing it with console and pc, so i need optical and usb.

    I can get modi 2 uber at s$250 which is ard us$178.

    Jus wondering, if paired with console via optical, would it degrade the sound if i used 2.0 or 2.1 speakers?

    At least, since all Schiit stuff is made in USA, you don't have to pay duty taxes when importing to Canada. You only have to pay PST + GST.

    None of the DAC's mentioned support more than 2 channels so there won't be any degradation in sound.  The only decent sounding option that will give you surround (short of the $3k Smyth Realiser) is the Creative X7.  You might want to check out MLE's Thread for more info about gaming setups.

    I think you may be right about the Linn Numerik. I was reading the Stereophile review from a long time ago and the descriptive language sounds like it's full of fluff. Talking about how it sounds very laid back and has such a smooth treble response, yet at the same time doesn't offer the upper mids or bass that the other DACs compared (DS Pro Basic II)

    I borrowed a Gungnir to try out the schiit DAC sound and fell in love. So I ordered a Bifrost Uber since it would match my Valhalla 2. Got it in and it just didn't have the same magic as the Gungnir and I'm using it single ended. The impact and intensity that I loved so much about the Gungnir was gone. So I sent the Bifrost back and got my own Gungnir. So yes, to me the Gungnir is definitely worth the price increase over the Bifrost uber.

    The Gungnir is a great DAC. If you lived in Ottawa I would say come over and have a listen. Very musical DAC and upgradeable to boot.

    I'd go with the Galvatron instead. It's way stronger and totally insane.
