New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil - Page 134

post #1996 of 9301
Ragnarok is the end of world; eugenius is the doomsayer. They go together tongue.gif

(And actually I don't mind those numbers at all. Always good to have your head in the clouds but your feet on solid ground)

Edit: And if I get a Rag (I'm more interested in Yggy) I would hope for a good match with a BMC PureDAC's balanced out.

The Chord Hugo is at the top of my wish list...

Overpriced in my opinion. Isn't that more of a portable set up rather than a home set up?

Geek Pulse Xfi for me. 

Chord Hugo? Audition the Geek Out 1000.

If it can do both portable and home use, then it will have even more value for me ..

Way overpriced! Just like anything else from Chord, really...

So, have either of you actually heard the Hugo?

Ragnarok is the end of the world but still I'm having a hard time finding some impressions from those who attended the Newport show!

I'm wondering if Mike took his LCD 2F and got some time with the Rag. Would be great if we get both reviews then.

No, I haven't. But I don't need to listen to it in order to recognise it as overpriced audio bling. Whether or not it sounds good, it's pretty much irrelevant, IMO.

And not very pretty bling, unless you call poorly fitting plastic fashionable. Sound is decent for a mobile DAC/amp, but not for $2400, more like $240.

The first part is very much true, the second part I don't know, because I've only experienced what it looks like.

 

I'll be using the Ragnarok with my Vega DAC (Which everyone knows that it looks good and sounds as good XD)

I agree, I heard it at Fujiya Avic and it was like "this is 2400 dollars?"

This is pretty much what's wrong with Head-Fi today. No, you haven't heard it, but you don't like the way it looks so whether it sounds good or not is irrelevant.

 

I agree it is a silly looking piece of kit. But I've heard it in non-meet conditions, and I can attest that the sound is pretty amazing. There is a bit of over-hype happening in the Chord Hugo thread, but there are also plenty of established Head-Fiers over there discussing the product's merits. Oh, and they've heard it.
