9028 DAC Card

Upgrade for Asgard 3, Jotunheim 1&2, and Lyr 3



Ships 1-3 days



This balanced DAC adds a USB digital input to your DAC-less Asgard 3, Jotunheim, Lyr 3, or Ragnarok 2. It uses the ESS ES9028 D/A converter, in a switchable balanced or single-ended configuration, together with our Unison USB™ interface for superior USB performance. 
Please note this uses a USB-C input, so plan your cables accordingly.
Schiit Scheduling System Reduces Upgrade Time
Schiit can install the ES9028 DAC board for you, with a convenient scheduling system that allows you to keep your product 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 product, 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 ES9028 DAC 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
DAC module upgrades are covered by a 2-year warranty or the balance of the original factory warranty, whichever is greater. For out-of-warranty products, having Schiit install the DAC module 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 module in its original packaging, in undamaged and operational condition, in 15 days for a refund, minus 15% reinspection and restocking fee.
