Schiit Bifrost 2

The Bifrost 2 is nothing less than a complete re-thinking of what an affordable DAC should be. Now with balanced output and remote control, and featuring Schiit’s unique True Multibit™ architecture with a time-and frequency-domain optimized digital filter, plus there own Unison USB™ input and easy-to-upgrade Autonomy™ platform, Bifrost delivers higher performance and greater convenience than ever before.

Balanced Output and Remote Control, Standard

Yes. Bifrost 2 now includes XLR balanced output, as well as RCA single-ended output, so it works seamlessly with your system—and with virtually the same performance from either output. You can also sit back and select inputs, mute, and change phase with the included milled aluminum remote control.

Completely Unique: Schiit's True Multibit™

Like all Schiit True Multibit products, Bifrost 2 uses completely unique D/A converters and Schiit's proprietary time- and frequency-domain optimized digital filter. In the case of Bifrost 2, two AD5781 converters—the same basic chip used in Gungnir Multibit—do the conversion, while the digital filter is implemented on an Analog Devices SHARC DSP.

USB, Elevated: Introducing Unison USB™

Bifrost 2 introduces the all-new Unison USB, Schiit's own USB input based on a general-purpose PIC32 microprocessor, using precision local clocks and completely electromagnetic and electrostatic isolation. No more off-the-shelf USB for Schiit Audio—this unique, UAC2-compliant input provides the highest performance and lowest power draw of any USB input they have offered to date. 

Autonomy™ Architecture: Easy Street to the Future

Turn Bifrost 2 around (or look at the picture's), and you’ll see that this DAC is completely modular. Not only that, the modules are designed to slide in from the back of the chassis, meaning this DAC will never have to come back for upgrades—you can do it yourself. Firmware updates? Sure, if there are firmware updates, just use the external MicroSD card slot—again, no need for it to come home. Compare this to other DACs, even DACs costing many times more. Only Bifrost 2 provides complete hardware and firmware upgradability, without sending the product in for service.

Designed and Assembled in USA

By “designed and assembled in USA" this is what we mean: the vast majority of the total production of Bifrost—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—are manufactured in the US. The chassis are made minutes from there facility. The PCBs are done just over the hill from the factory, or done in NorCal. The transformers are also made in California. They are not just putting in the last screws and calling it done.  

5-Year Warranty

Bifrost 2 is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts and labour.
