DAC Comparison

Cyrus soundKey vs Schiit Bifrost 2

Cyrus soundKey

soundKey is an award-winning revolution in mobile music. Hi-Fi streaming services like TIDAL mean fantastic quality is available to subscribers, but phones lack the necessary hardware to get the best from this data. soundKey unlocks that data, using our years of expertise in high-resolution DAC and amplifier design. Cyrus quality audio is now available to everyone.

$99.00 MSRP

Schiit Bifrost 2

Bifrost 2 is nothing less than a complete re-thinking of what an affordable DAC should be. Now with balanced output and remote control, and featuring Schiit’s unique True Multibit™ architecture with a time-and frequency-domain optimized digital filter, plus our own Unison USB™ input and easy-to-upgrade Autonomy™ platform, Bifrost delivers higher performance and greater convenience than ever before.

I see it a step up from $9 dongles but the $99 price is hard to swallow.
