        Downloaded installer. Got through 2 different iterations of sneaky checkbox asking to install Bing Bar.

        To find out "A newer or equivalent version has been installed. No installation necessary" instead of a repair option

      Greetings Ash1412, I was wondering if you could say a bit more to your statement "the Gungnir Multibit is, IMO, way too big/overkill for the LP" on the all purpose thread. I also have the LP / Modi Multibit but with Auteur usually with CD transport. I was considering going to the Gungnir Multibit. What does too big/overkill mean? Thanks!

        Its definitely the size (its meant for a rack/speaker rig so if you're using LP on desktop will be a long cable run or big-ass desk) and price (2x price of the LP) for the most part. However, according to many impressions here, Gungnir Multibit also seems to "scale" (more like actually showing its true resolve) up to much more expensive amps. Right now its pretty much the best value endgame DAC, if preferences align.

        I'm not disagreeing with the pairing, more like saying that its probably better to hold out for a more competitive Bifrost and to hold out for more competitive DACs/headphones/amps in that price range in general, which used to be a complete no man's land until the LP, soekris and other stuff arrived, but is starting to shape into the sweetspot for pricing while still getting something on the cutting edge.

        I.e. used HD800s are around that price these days while "cutthroat" cutting edge stuff is still going up in price since many manufacturers are on a high to innovate without giving a damn about the consumer base (who can afford). Sennheiser included (HD660S, HD820, still selling that pos HD700,...). You can hold out and get a DAC that should hopefully complete the HD800/LP/R2R trio or even HD800/LP/vinyl(Sol).

      Tried Mobi and Vali 2 with Contact from RAM. Finally able to withstand the second half. This is simply magical!

        You might regret that after seeing what they release

        I might regret the Vali 2, not the Modi Multibit. Jason already said that they are not going to mess with their own DAC line.

      Can't find the pentagonal graph comparison thread anywhere. Have they been deleted?

        Thank you for the link but I'm looking for the original chart with all the notes and explanations. I thought it was supposed to be in the TH-X00 measurement thread but it wasn't
