I have not played SACDs (nor vinyl) since getting my Bifrost a few months ago since I had no desire to hear another source, but decided to compare finally.
I used DSOTM SACD to confirm that I prefer the Bifrost to the Oppo analog outs.
I used "The Great Gig in the Sky" track. I used the main L & R outs of the multichannel from Oppo since I never really heard a difference compared to the stereo outs. I had Mapleshade Excalibur plus' on the Oppo and Morrow MA 4s on the Schiit; the Mapleshades are about as good as my Morrows.
I compared CD layer on Schiit to the stereo SACD layer from Oppo.
I preferred the sound from the Bifrost.
