I have listened to uncritically to a Moon 100D DAC for a couple of years now, linked to a W4S mINT played through a Squeezebox Touch and Vortexbox server. Speakers are Silverline Minuet Supreme Plus, cables are Transparent MM2 RCA, Black Cat Veloce S/PDIF, and Transparent MWP speaker cables. Overall, a decent bedroom system. I bought a used Schiit Bifrost Uber USB 2 DAC and found to my surprise I like the Moon better. The Moon seems to throw a larger soundstage in comparison and has better frequency extension. I played the Bifrost for six weeks and it has improved somewhat and reproduces midrange well but, otherwise, I prefer the Moon, especially in the areas of dynamics and pace. I'm beginning to think there is something wrong with the Schiit (which could explain why it was given up for adoption). It's off to Valencia for the multibit upgrade so we'll see where that takes things. I have great regard for Schiit and the reviews lead me to think something is amiss. Has you mileage varied? Does it take longer than that to burn in the Bifrost (who knows how many hours it has on it)? Do I have a system incompatibility? Thanks, looking forward to your views.
