RE: Choice for new DAC: Schiit Gungir Multibit vs. Topping D90 MQA

Posted by AbeCollins on January 7, 2021 at 14:56:59:

I haven't heard the Schiit Gungir Multibit but I really like my Topping D90. However, I consider the Topping to be very detailed with excellent transient impact and transparency. I wouldn't call it edgy but it is not "smooth" like one would expect from a tube DAC or a tube output stage. It does have a nice full bodied robust sound - unlike some others I've owned like Mytek or Oppo. Those sound a bit thin or lean to me. I've read that Denafrips makes a smooth sounding DAC. Ivan303 owns one.
