USB Gen 2
For Bifrost and Gungnir
This USB input card is for all Bifrosts and Gungnirs. Upgrade from Gen 1 for better USB performance, or add USB input capability to a USB-less DAC. This is the same Gen 2 USB board that ships standard with every new Bifrost or Gungnir.
Schiit Scheduling System Reduces Upgrade Time
Schiit can install the Gen 2 USB board for you, with a convenient scheduling system that allows you to keep your Bifrost or Gungnir until we’re ready to turn it around 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.
Other Installation Options
If you’re an experienced electronics technician or engineer who is familiar with ESD precautions, or work with a good tech, you can choose to have the Gen 2 USB board sent to you directly, fully tested and protected in an antistatic bag.
Please note that by selecting this option, you are saying, "Yes, I am, or know, a competent electronics technician who does not need hand-holding for this installation, and I will not allow an inexperienced person to perform the upgrade, since I understand there are no user-serviceable parts inside."
2-Year Warranty, Made in USA
USB Gen 2 upgrades are covered by a 2-year warranty or the balance of the original factory warranty, whichever is greater. For out-of-warranty products, 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 cannot be returned. For self-installed upgrades, you can return the card in its original packaging, in undamaged and operational condition, in 15 days for a refund, minus 15% reinspection and restocking fee. And, like all Schiit products, the USB Gen 2 board is made in the USA.
