Gungnir's Excellent Performance
With the Gungnir, you get a truly hardware-balanced DAC with two AKM AK4399 32-bit D/A converters, followed by a fully discrete, JFET-input stage for current gain and filtering. The result is exceptional performance that is probably the best in its price class.
Gungnir Multibit: Taking The Gungnir Beyond
Gungnir Multibit, and you get the same proprietary closed-form DSP-based digital filter as Yggdrasil, along with four precision Analog Devices AD5781BRUZ digital to analog converters for true hardware balancing and 19 effective bits of resolution. The analog section is finished with discrete JFET buffers and summers, the same as Yggdrasil.
Adapticlock™: Unique Clock Analysis and Regeneration
Both versions of Gungnir include Schiit's proprietary Adapticlock system, which provides for both exceptional jitter performance and unchanging, glitch-free connectivity. Adapticlock analyzes the incoming signal quality and automatically routes it to the best clock regeneration system—either VCXO or VCO-based. And, it does all of this without altering the bit depth or sample rate of your original music.
USB Input Standard
With Schiit's acclaimed Gen 2 USB input now standard, the Gungnir can be used with a computer, tablet, and even with some Android & iOS phones.
Made in USA
The vast majority of the total production cost of Gungnir—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to American companies manufacturing in the US. Making Schiit's Gungnir truly 'Made in USA'.

"This is an outstanding DAC. It exceeds every DAC I have previously heard. it's extremely good and worth the price. It's less shouty than the Uberfrost, more smooth, more musical, more detailed, and more resolving--in relative terms that is." Read More
