Get a truly hardware-balanced DAC with a dual 32-bit AKM AK4399 D/A chipset, followed by an entirely discrete, JFET-input stage for current gain and filtering. With the Schiit Gungnir, enjoy a rock-solid and glitch-free connectivity thanks to the Adapticlock™ system. It analyses the quality of the incoming signal and routes it to either a VCXO or VCO-based clock regeneration system, depending on which is the best at the moment. This gives you exceptional jitter performance without any changes in the sample rate or bit depth of the original music.
You get to pick between two options — an affordable Delta-Sigma option that offers excellent performance at a moderate price. The second is Schitt's very own True Multi-Bit Architecture which includes the same proprietary DSP-based digital filter, discrete JFET buffers and summers that are also used in the Yggdrasil. 4 precision Analog Devices AD5781BRUZ DACs for true hardware balancing and 19 effective bits of resolution are also present. Both variants use Schiit's Unison USB that includes a PIC32 microprocessor, complete electrostatic & electromagnetic isolation as well as precision local clocks. This ensures a lower power draw and better performance.

"The music breathes, the singers expand, move, breathe and fade away, the details and the gestalt both exist and neither compromises the other. I've thrown thousands of tracks at it."Read More
If you thought or heard people say that DACs don't matter as much as Headphones or Amps, then you need to give this or any other high quality DAC a listen before jumping to a conclusion! These DACs take several hours of warm-up after turning them on to sound right. So it's recommended to keep them running 24x7 which is what i do. There's none of the glare like in lower end DACs (especially ESS based) and the sound is a touch warm, detailed and spacious.
So glad you are loving your DAC & yes, we totally agree DACs are so important & make a huge difference to your audio. Cheers & Keep the music playing!
