Schiit Audio Bifrost Multibit [Expired]


no longer for sale

Trust you are familiar with this DAC- no complaints whatsoever. I love it. Proper name: 

BIFROST TRUE MULTIBIT™ AUTONOMY™ DAC WITH UNISON USB™

Price includes shipping. It's located on a bookcase to the right of my stand-up desk, connected to my Lenovo laptop and my old-school Sansui stereo. I never use the remote, but a pretty remote it is. The sound is lovely. It is like new, but I'm not one who (has the space to) keep boxes--I'll wrap it well, should ship with no problem. I'd say it's about 1 1/2 to 2 years old. # 04205868 is the # on the back) Cost includes shipping, USPS/Priority mail.

This is not the 2022 upgrade to 2/64. The upgrade card for DIY is $300 from Schiit Audio.
I've read positive and negative reviews, but I've not heard it. 
This is one of the negative reviews (in favour of keeping the model I have for sale) Some like it more, some are waiting, some like it less, see below.

Tried the new Bifrost 2/64 upgrade card and sadly I will be returning it. The original Bifrost 2 is just too perfect, and I appreciate it a lot more now. Schiit swapped out the AD chips for Texas Instrument chips and for me it's a downgrade. If you love the Bifrost 2 and are considering the new upgrade, be prepared for a completely different sound. What it gains in soundstage width, treble/air extension, and detail it loses in its magic and its musical character. The original I would characterize as smooth, lifelike, warm, fun, punchy, dynamic-sounding yet also relaxing. The 2/64 trades away that warmth and that smooth lifelike sound for an increase in grainy detail that is grating to my ears and more digital sounding than I am used to hearing in a Schiit DAC. It also trades away the perfectly calibrated dynamics of the original in favor of a wider soundstage that just makes everything sound stretched and further away with less full-bodiness. I will say that the 2/64 does sound better for orchestral tracks, which is the one genre that the Bifrost 2 never excelled in. But for nearly everything else, I prefer the OG. I listened with the Lyr 3 and Feliks Echo II tube amps using Verum One and Focal Clear OG.
