Talk about overkill...
I have a great condition (9/10) ZMF Blackwood for sale. It is a great sounding T50RP mod, I personally preferred it much more to the Alpha Dogs due to its more natural tone and timbre. The Blackwood is beautiful too. I am selling it because I don't really have a need for closed headphones anymore and the HD800 is taking up most of my head time.   It includes a 1/8" cable and I can include a 1/4" adapter if needed.   Comes in original box with the extra bass-port plugs....
Yggy + "euphonic" tube amp?
People who say the Yggy sounds the same as their old DAC is akin to saying a Lamborghini is the same as an BMW M3 because they are both fast cars that get you from point A to point B. If all you want from your DAC is to get you from point A to point B. Don't bother purchasing a Lamborghini.
Regarding the dearth of detailed interviews:   It is very hard to put what you experience with the Yggy into words. You stop thinking about the different arbitrary characteristics we have made up to describe sound. It just sounds like music. When you go to a concert, you never think to yourself "this violin is too detailed" or "this piano is too warm". It just sounds like music. This is what people are talking about when they say the DAC just disappears. It's very hard...
It seems you have a bone to pick and I get it. I'm a skeptic at heart, just like you seem to be. Schiit had growing pains in their first couple months of operation like any new start-up. That, the hype surrounding it, and their "nonchalant" attitude made me initially avoid their products. So I waited for things to settle and see where the company went.I've been on HF 8 years now, and I didn't own a single Schiit product until 2015. A few months ago, it seemed the company...
Except the AD5791 is brand spanking new, bleeding edge technology, that was released in 2010, and is the first true 20-bit DAC.Do you know how many hoops Mike had to jump through to get a DAC the caliber of the AD5791 to work for audio? Why didn't he just use the PCM1704 since it has the same "lineage" as the older PCM63 and also readily accepts this filter if it truly is the filter that only matters, according to your theory? PCM1704 is R2R so it would work in that angle...
Instead of crying that he change the title, why don't people unsubscribe and make their own thread where they can make the title whatever they want to counteract this one. This is an Internet forum, people have opinions. If you can't seem to get that simple concept down, you need to get off the Internet for your own good.
So you think Mike's whole life work, spending many years, thousands of hours, and countless long days and nights to painstakingly develop an elaborate custom platform for the AD5791, because it isn't designed for audio applications, was an elaborate ploy just so they could market the Yggy as an R2R instead of a D-S DAC? And then once they finally succeeded, they only charged a minimal cost considering the bill of materials? Lol
I have a Yggy and while the sound is definitely top notch, I still enjoy listening to my Modi 2U and Fulla in my other systems. The Yggy is the best DAC I've heard, but that doesn't make my other D-S gear suddenly sound terrible. Just like if I owned a Lamborghini, I'd still be able to drive and appreciate an Audi or BMW. I really hope people are purposefully overreacting as a means of trolling. If this is truly bothering you, please do yourself a favor, call your ISP and...
