Schiit Gungnir Multibit
Schiit Gungnir is a Multibit Dac which is fully upgradeable
With Gen5 USB Dac
The Schiit Gungnir Multibit offers the world's most advanced Adapticlock clock regeneration system in a fully upgradable, hardware-balanced DAC with 32-bit D/A converters, advanced fully discrete analog output stage, with hardware summing for single-ended output. Like Bifrost, it also offers one of the most advanced asynchronous USB 2.0 input sections available. The USB, SPDIF BNC and RCA coax inputs, and Toslink optical input all offer 24/192 capability.
Gungnir Multibit: Above and Beyond
The Schiit Gungnir Multibit gets the same proprietary closed-form DSP-based digital filter as Yggdrasil, coupled to four precision Analog Devices AD5781BRUZ digital to analog converters for true hardware balancing and 19 effective bits of resolution. The analog section is completed with discrete JFET buffers and summers, the same as Yggdrasil.
Adapticlocks Unique Clock Analysis and Regeneration
The best ways to kill jitter is with high-precision, voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO) what happens when you have a source that will not allow the VCXOs to lock? like a satellite receiver or some computers? In most circumstances it just won't work. The VCXOs unlock, and jitter flows right through the system.In Gungnir, if the VCXOs won't lock, it shifts the entire reclocking network to VCOs. This allows it to lock on to virtually any input, and still provide a low-jitter regenerated master clock. The result is higher-quality clock, despite the source this is what Schiit have called an Adapticlock
Schiit Gungnir uses two AKM4399 32-bit D/A converters for real hardware balancing.After the DAC, Schiit's Gungnir uses fully discrete, JFET-input output stages for current gain and filtering. Following that, discrete, JFET-based summing stages convert the balanced signal to single-ended outputs, so that Gungnir can offer both balanced and single-ended output.
Like the Bifrost, Schiit Gungnir Multibit does not use asynchronous sample rate conversion to simplify clock management. All data is passed through, to the D/A converter, preserving all the original music samples--whether it's 16/44.1 or 24/192. Gungnirs USB input is one of the most advanced implementations available today, featuring a high-speed USB Gen5 interface and asynchronous data transfer to 24/192, based on the C-Media CM6631 USB receiver.
No drivers are required for Macs, and Windows drivers are downloadable for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, etc (Click Here)
Schiit Gungnir Multibit is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for four years. Thats 4 years. Yes. FOUR Compare that to the competition. Please note this doesn't mean free upgrades for four years!
