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.
