DAC Comparison

Cyrus soundKey vs Schiit Gungnir

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 Gungnir

True Multibit or delta-sigma? Yes. With Gungnir, you have the flexibility to choose between affordable delta-sigma performance, or Schiit’s own True Multibit architecture with medical-grade D/A converters and a unique time- and frequency-domain optimized digital filter. Both versions offer excellent performance for a moderate price—as well as the comfort of completely upgradable, modular design.

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