Any opinions on Shiit Freya+ and Bifrost or combination? Other worthy options considered.
Any opinions on Shiit Freya+ and Bifrost or combination?
Anyone with experience with either of these two? Any
I am seeking to replace my older Parasound P2 preamplifier and older Bifrost Uber DAC. I want all the functionality and flexibility of the P2 ( multiple inputs, balanced out and in connections, quality parts) and add some tube sound, but like to know if the Freya+ would be an upgrade. Also I have the older Bifrost Uber and was wondering if the new Bifrost would be a good step up.
My budget is about $1600 for both, so thats a lower end for both. I am also interested in anyone with similar needs who has tried something else. Maybe a combo preamp and dac. Looking at digital streaming and the DAC would improve the sound of my Bluesound Node 2 and/or Bluesound Vault which I am keeping as a source. No need for phono hookup
The amp is a Parasound A21.
