    Hey all, brand new here.

    Looking for some advice on getting a better sounding stack than my NFB-11. As far as DAC's go, is the Schiit Gungnir Multibit a good choice? Also, I've heard rumors that "Gungnir Multibit Analog 2" is what Schiit is actually currently shipping after a silent refresh a couple months ago, is this true? If so, how would I know if the unit I received is the new version?

    As far as amps go, I was figuring I'd start with the Vali 2. I do not understand why, but the Magni 3 catches a lot of flak but the Vali 2 gets the nod from a lot of people despite only being $50 more. I'd have thought a tube amp (even if it's just a hybrid) would have even more of a "compressed" sound and less detail.

    Thank you in advance for any guidance :cool:
