Which one?
 Some feel 24/96 might offer improvements:http://www.lavryengineering.com/pdfs/lavry-white-paper-the_optimal_sample_rate_for_quality_audio.pdf But here's an alternative view:https://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.htmlVideos: https://www.xiph.org/video/
Will you be responding to Stereophile's Yggdrasil review in their next issue's "Manufacturers' Comments" section?
Couldn't agree more.  While I enjoyed the sound of vinyl, once I went to hard-drive based digital music I came to the same conclusion you did -- all the hassles you listed with records just wasn't worth it, especially when I bought a SlimDevices SqueezeBox3 and started ripping CDs.  I still have my turntable, boxed up in the garage along with all my albums and necessary "maintenance accessories".  Maybe someday I'll drag it all out and give vinyl a go again, but for me the...
I looked at the Stereophile measurements for a few other digital processors recently reviewed and found their measured resolution* with 24-bit data: Mytek Brooklyn: 19-20 bits - http://www.stereophile.com/content/mytek-hifi-brooklyn-da-processor%C2%96headphone-amplifier-measurementsdCS Rossini Player: <20 bits - http://www.stereophile.com/content/dcs-rossini-player-rossini-clock-measurementsBryston BDA-3: <21 bits...
What I don't get is, given the long term and hard-earned reputations of both Mike and Jason for innovation and excellence in design, why didn't Stereophile reach out to the Schiit boys to get clarification on the implementation decisions of the Yggdrasil before disparaging it?  
There's a lot of fake news coming out of New York City these days ... 
What's the old saying, if it sounds good but measure poorly then you are measuring the wrong things ... and vice versa, eh? Some very nice things were also said in the article about the Bifrost Multibit, of which I am a very pleased owner as well, along with a Lyr 2.
Anyone see the Yggdrasil review in the latest issue (Feb 2017) of Stereophile?   The subjective reviewer loved it.  However with the objective reviewer who performs the technical measurements, the results were mixed.  He felt the analog circuitry is superbly well designed, but that its digital circuitry is not fully optimized and hoped this could be addressed with a firmware upgrade.   Opinions of Stereophile among many folks are less than favorable but should Schiit...
 Thanks for the quick and thoughtful responses Jason, I appreciate it.
