As for a screen, I'll stare at my computer screensaver while listening to the amazing music coming out of my headphones.

My only concern re keeping Ragnarok on the desktop is the thermal envelope - hopefully, I'll find out sooner rather than latter how well that works in practice.

Ok, no displays - no problem, but what will the Ygg have that will make it cost twice the price of the Gungnir and be twice as heavy?

It contains a 3kg weight in both the left and the right side of the chassis - for a more balanced sound.

Much larger/superior power supplies I'd imagine. Much larger chassis-of which an lcd display would only further lighten.

Fairy dust is actually quite heavy.
post #1342 of 9301

Is pixie dust a suitable alternative-or is that reserved strictly for tubes? Also-all that magic powder yet no remote. Eat it haters.

Fairies and other mythical creatures do in fact subsist on a diet of mostly precious metals, so it's only natural that their "dust" and other detritus be composed of heavy elements.

More advanced DAC's tend to be less integrated, meaning more power supplies, more components, a bigger case. Especially when you don't use an off the shelf chip like I gather the YGG does.

 

It will be the less expensive DAC without off the shelf dac's, undercutting even the chinese on price while lacking that special chinese build quality that made my last two purchases made in China develop problems in the first year. :)

 

The amount of trolling on this thread is triple the standard head-fi quota.

Jason did have a background in marketing. I'd say he was probably pretty good at his old job, too. ;)

Yes, I'm in awe of Jason's marketing for Schiit.  My wife was in luxury marketing for a while and she wrote some of the best anti-copy of all time, but never got to put it out to the public.  Glad to see Jason pulling it off.  But he has a different target audience than my wife did.

Mods, any chance of a thread cleanup ? Anything that isn't directly relevant to either of the products we are allegedly discussing should be wiped, IMO. We saw much the same frivolity in the leadup to various HiFiMan and iBasso releases : I completely get it, but it wont make life any easier for people trying to find Jason's posts (the only REAL info in this thread beyond the OP's specs) in the middle of this monster. No disrespect to those who are just trying to fill in time - we've all been there - as Worminator pointed out a few posts back, we are 90 pages into a thread about gear that is still in the 'You're gonna love this !' chute.

 

Peace out.
