Tony Wins Some Schiit
Tony Tueni of Charlotte, North Carolina is the happy winner of our Schiit Bifrost USB and Modi DACs Sweepstakes. Tony's current system includes a Rega Planar 3 turntable, Onix integrated amplifier, Soliloquy 5.3 loudspeakers, Oppo CD player, and Squeezebox Touch. He can now add the Schiit BiFrost and Modi DACs to the list.
When he plugged the Squeezebox into the BiFrost via glass optical cable, he "immediately noticed more clarity and focus with a less sizzly high end," compared to the analog outputs from his Squeezebox Touch. In addition, low frequencies seemed tighter. He loves the hardy made-in-the-USA build of the BiFrost and Modi, and he's considering the UBER analog upgrade on the BiFrost.
A Stereophile review of the BiFrost is coming soon. The reviewed model includes the UBER upgrade. Since Tony's been reading Stereophile since high school, I have no doubt he'll read our review. Hopefully, it'll help him make his decision.
Thanks for your many years of readership Tony, and congratulations on your win!
