Bifrost is the DAC that changed the game in affordable digital audio—bringing full upgradability to the most inexpensive platform in the world, and introducing concepts like bit-perfect clock management and modular USB architecture. Now, Bifrost changes the game once again with the all-new Bifrost.
Bifrost: Excellent Performance With All-New AKM DAC
Choose Bifrost, and you get a great DAC at an amazing price. Featuring the 32-bit AKM Verita® AK4490 D/A converter and a fully discrete stage for summing, current gain and filtering, Bifrost bests all previous delta-sigma Bifrosts—including the acclaimed Bifrost Uber—for a lower price.
Future-Proof, Not Dumpster Fodder
With Bifrost, you’re choosing a DAC that won’t become obsolete when technology changes. Unlike all other DACs anywhere near its price point, Bifrost is fully modular and upgradable—making it virtually future-proof, rather than dumpster fodder.
Advanced Clock Management, USB Input Standard
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.
Bifrost is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labor for five years. That’s 5 years. Yes. FIVE. Compare that to the competition. Please note this doesn't mean free upgrades for five years!
