I guess you have read some of Jasons or Mikes posts about expensive Hi-Fi, otherwise go read them again . "Really good" DACs cost multiples of 10k because of the fancy chassis, super-expensive-made-of-the-tears-of-Buddha's-virgin-sister-components, the audio dealers profit margin (50, 100 or even more %), ads and marketing... . and because they want to appeal to rich customers who don't really understand much about audio. For some people, price is a feature and they won't even consider a product that doesn't cost a lot. Sound quality is not so important in the high-end industry....
The Yggdrasil is, as everything else Schiit makes, a no-bullshiit product.
