Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Another take on Schiit Bifrost

"That would be the nature of the AKM chips coming through. I found this to be true with nearly every AKM Dac I have owned and listened too."

If it's just playing 44.1 kHz through the AKM DAC then it may be a filter effect. The cure would be to try upsampling with a smooth, somewhat rolled off filter, e.g. Sox, 92% offset, minimum phase.

If it happens with most higher sampling rate recordings it is likely that your system is on the bright side and might be more enjoyable if tamed somewhat. Some recordings are just too bright and if one voices the system for them then other recordings may be too dull.

I leave my equipment powered up 24/7 as that also smooths things out.
