RE: Another take on Schiit Bifrost

So many Bifrost threads around these parts ...got me to get off my duff and get some of this good Schiit. I played it for less than a week and so far it is working really fine. The sound appears to resemble the mental image I have garnered after reading related posts. I like it. The previous front end consisted of a Marantz SA15. If you think the Bifrost is heavy on sizzle you have not heard the SA15. That machine will etch a laser tattoo onto your eardrums to the point of enjoying its precision but yearning for more sedation. Here is where the Schiit hits the fan: more coherent, liquid and organic sounding. The frosting on the cake is that it makes me just want to listen to music more. The one caveat that I had is that it was a bit too lame in the upper registers until...I changed one tube in my amplifier. That did the trick. More snap with no sizzle. I really like this thing via USB from the laptop (Jriver and Fidelizer software).
