Schiit Audio Bifrost is the world's most affordable fully upgradable DAC, featuring Schiit's proprietary closed-form, time and frequency-domain optimized DSP-based digital filter like Yggdrasil and Gungnir Multibit, coupled to a precision Analog Devices AD5547CRUZ digital to analog converter a D/A never before used in any other audio product. 

Together with one of the most advanced asynchronous USB 2.0 input sections available, as well as SPDIF coaxial and optical inputs, all with 24/192 capability.

Now, if you're new to this whole DAC game, the only thing you might have gotten out of that sentence was "affordable" and "upgradable." That's fine. We want Bifrost to be affordable, because you shouldn't have to take out a second mortgage to get fantastic sound, and it's upgradable, because, well...times change.

Fully Upgradable: The Future-Proof DAC

Worried about rapidly-changing USB input technology? Concerned about future advances in D/A conversion? Bifrost's modular design uses separate, USB Input and DAC/Analog cards. When USB technology changes, we can simply drop in a new, better USB Input Card. When meaningful upgrades to D/A converters come out, we can drop in a new DAC/Analog Card. The result? A virtually future-proof DAC that won't end up in the dumpster.

Advanced Bitperfect Clock Management, USB Input Standard

Most DACs in this price range is sacrifice every single one of your original music samples to get their magic 192kHz spec. Every input is routed through a sample rate converter and upsampled to 24/192.Bifrost uses a sophisticated master clock management system to deliver bit-perfect data to the DAC unlike many DACs that use asynchronous sample rate conversion (ASRC), which destroys the original samples. And, with our acclaimed Gen 2 USB input now standard, you're ready for computer, tablet, and even phone-based sources.

Have high-res music? No problem. Bifrost offers a full range of inputs: Coaxial and optical SPDIF, as well as USB. Bifrost's USB is one of the most advanced implementations available today, featuring a high-speed USB 2.0 interface (not 1.1) 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 at www.schiit.com/drivers
