Repaired Bifrost is back in service! :)

The repaired Bifrost just arrived a little while ago, and now it's back in the computer's sound system. Everything is working as it should, and sounding wonderful! No hum, no electric shocks, etc. Just good sound.

I can now enthusiastically endorse the following "desktop" computer sound system:

USB digital output from laptop computer (DH Labs Silver Sonic digital USB cable)
DAC: Schiit Bifrost (w/USB input option, of course)
Integrated amp: Maverick Audio TubeMagic A1 (Audio Art IC-3 analog interconnect pair from DAC to amp)
Speakers (monitors): Napa Acoustic NA-208S
Subwoofer: HSU Research STF-1
Headphones: Sennheiser HD600 (pure tube headphone output section from amp)
Power cords: Pangea AC-14SE for DAC, amp, and subwoofer

Still doesn't compete with main music system, but for a near field desktop system, it's sounding very nice (more "burn-in" time still expected for both Bifrost and hybrid tube/ss class A/B amp).
