Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit Upgrade

This upgrade changes any Gungnir into Gungnir Multibit AKA an "Yggdrasil Junior" and has to be returned to us for upgrade.

In actuality, it's a lot like Yggdrasil, using the same proprietary closed-form digital filter and precision multibit DACs. In this case, the DACs are AD5781BRUZ rather than Yggy's AD5791BRUZ, but there's still 4 of them for true hardware balancing, and they're followed by discrete JFET buffers for simplicity and excellent performance.   
For this upgrade, your Gungnir needs to have its motherboard firmware updated by us ( This requires a specific programming device with an RJ12 connector, as well as software. Because of this, there is no self-install option, sorry.

 Schiit Scheduling System Reduces Upgrade Time

We've provided a convenient scheduling system that allows you to keep your Gungnir until we are ready to upgrade it immediately. Just place your order, and follow the steps in the series of emails. You will be notified when your order is accepted, when to send in your DAC, when the work is performed, and when its shipped back to you, for complete transparency.

When ordering this item carriage charge will be for the return of the unit back to you
