STATUS: Backordered. Orders placed now expected to be approved for upgrade the week of February 24th.
This upgrade changes any Gungnir into Gungnir Multibit*–AKA an "Yggdrasil Junior."
In actuality, it's a lot like Yggdrasil, using the same proprietary closed-form digital filter and precision multibit DACs. In this case, the DACs are AD5781BRUZ rather than Yggy's AD5791BRUZ, but there's still 4 of them for true hardware balancing, and they're followed by discrete JFET buffers for simplicity and excellent performance.
For this upgrade, your Gungnir needs to have its motherboard firmware updated by us, or by an authorized service center such as Electromod in the UK. This requires a specific programming device with an RJ12 connector, as well as software. Because of this, there is no self-install option, sorry.
Schiit Scheduling System Reduces Upgrade Time
We've provided a convenient scheduling system that allows you to keep your Gungnir until we’re ready to upgrade it immediately. Just place your order, and follow the steps in the series of emails. You’ll be notified when your order is accepted, when to send in your DAC, when the work is performed, and when it’s shipped back to you, for complete transparency.
2-Year Warranty, Made in USA
Gungnir Multibit upgrades are covered by a 2-year warranty, or by the balance of the remaining factory warranty, whichever is greater. For out-of-warranty Gungnirs, this re-activates the warranty on the complete product for 2 years. One caveat: Schiit may refuse to do upgrades on heavily modified products. Schiit-installed upgrades are not eligible for return. Like all Schiit products, the Gungnir Multibit upgrade is made in the USA.
*Please note this does NOT include the USB Gen 2 input, so if you don't have USB input, and want USB input, you'll need to order both upgrades.
