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.
