How would this alone compare against the Jotunheim with the multibit dac?
The Jotunheim with the multibit card would definitely outperform this. If you're willing to spend the extra cash, go for it!
This is a great deal if you want a balanced DAC/amp, and while it's not as powerful as the standard DAC/amp configuration of the Jot it still stands well on its own, but the multibit DAC is going to be no contest. That'd be $220 more than this drop, though, which is a bit less of a budget item (especially for people who are outside the US).
This is really more of a DAC and not an amp. The amp is just a bonus so weigh your options carefully. If DAC is your first priority, then by no means get this instead.
The Jotunheim doesn't support DSD.
That's a good point I forgot to mention; if you want DSD support, that alone makes this the better choice. It's not something a lot of people really care about though, unfortunately.
