Yes and no. Caps are filters too, not just energy storage.

What's a filter?

 

Nevermind... if I keep asking questions about all of this technical stuff, this whole thread will turn into an introductory course on electronics.

In REALLY simple terms, caps let AC pass, that is, a contently changing voltage signal like a sin wave, and blocks DC, a constant signal. However, caps have a speed limit, that is, if the said AC signal's frequency is to high and there is a load after the cap, it won't be able to catch up with the input signal to feed the load as it has a limited charging speed and discharge speed (time constant). This speed limit tend to "smooth" rough variations of voltage on the cap.

So here I gave two really simple examples where a capacitor can act as a DC FILTER (blocking DC) and as a LOW-PASS filter, blocking high frequencies.

Eh?? A capacitor acting as a low pass filter?! That's a first, can you paste a link with an example circuit?

Mind you I'm no EE but I've worked on passive crossovers for multi-way speakers. From that, my understanding is thay a capacitor is a high pass component (it filters DC and some LF content too, the capacitance defining the roll-off frequency) while an inductor is a low pass filter. The electrical impedance (1/jCw, jLw) also suggests so. What am I missing here?

Edit: and that is why I was right never getting into EE as an RC filter can be made to either low pass or high pass per my friend wikipedia wink.gif.

Just stick the cap in parallel with the load and voila, low-pass filter:

Sorry I am new to schitt products but why are there 149 pages when the product has not even been reviewed by any users yet? Do they have a good track record with past products? I am mostly interested in the Ygg because I am looking for a DAC for my 2 channel set up. Emailed them and no reply. Called them and no answer.

So bad cust service+ product not even owned by anyone but 149 pages. Hmmm interesting.

It hasn't been released yet.

But seriously, Schiit is trying to make sure everything is tip top before releasing.

Please read this preliminary information including the small and important notices on the top and bottom
you will understand ;-)
if not, nevermind, you are not part of the target group

I'm happy they said this:

 We can say these are the highest-end products we expect to develop - there will be no "super statements" coming. so sit back, relax, and enjoy what you're listening to.

Well I think they'll eventually be upgradeable, at this point (or at least Ragnarok)... It would be a great feature for sure!

post #2232 of 9301

They'll most likely be upgradeable, given Schiit's corporate philosophy, but at least we'll know they they'll never be one-upped by a higher end model

 

That said, "Odin" and "Thor" have yet to grace the front of any Schiit products.....;)

Perhaps a subwoofer? A crossover? A power transformer? Who knows what other goodies Schiit will cook up after the Rag and Yggy?
post #2234 of 9301

I sure would love a crossover, thinking of having to route a beautiful signal from, say, an Ygg, through some cheap DSP's cheap ADCs and DACs and other cheap cheapstuff makes me feel like it really should be replaced with some nicer schiit.

post #2235 of 9301

Or better yet, an active crossover feeding two (or three) Yggs, then into a pair of Rags before hitting the speakers.
