Schiit Audio BiFrost Multibit Digital to Analogue Converter

Schiit Audio

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 Multibit.

Choose Bifrost Multibit, you get 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. The result? Ultimate sonic performance in a desktop-friendly form factor.

  • 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.

    • Sophisticated 'trickle down' technology from the flagship Yggdrasil it utilized to maximise performance
    • 5-Year Warranty?
      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!
