    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Hi D2Girls, I think you're missing my point that predicting what another person thinks or will do ("how...treats his customers....I'm convinced that he would simply write me off") is chancey at best. You may be entirely right. Equally, you may be entirely wrong. With Mike, who knows? With...

    Have you in fact heard them to conclude they are "pretty much the same" or is this speculation? I believe it is the sound Wingtip wants to know about...

    Schiit Mjolnir2 Tube Rolling Thread

    Don't have a definitive answer for you sorry, not having encountered a microphonic tube before. Inclined to think burn in won't improve it - because burn in changes are usually related to subtle SQ changes - but I don't know. This thread is valuable but seems to have few active followers. You...

    ^ This is sad to hear. It seems likely your Yggy has a problem. You should contact Schiit technical support and go from there.

    @neoluddite, these continue to be well organized, detailed and useful notes. A great contribution.

    The Decware TABOO MK 111 Thread

    The LCD2 (rev 1) on the older, mkII Taboo are indeed something; my preferred amp for this headphone. Moreover, the mkII indeed has lower input sensitivity and was frequently paired with the older CSP2+, a preamp which can put out 30V. (Personally, I find the Taboo more transparent without this...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    ^ Seemed obvious sarcasm to me. I enjoyed your wit. But sometimes it's hard to know who's kidding who :D

    Schiit Mjolnir 2 Listening Impressions

    Schiit don't "gimp" any parts of their circuits, they have stated. On the contrary, Jason has gone to a lot of trouble to make SE perform as well as balanced from what I recall of his chapters about their designs. I would like to see where it's been shown the SE headphone outs are 'gimped'...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    ^ First recording I bought was a Beethoven symphony - does that count? :D. Probably Hans Schmidt-Isserstaedt conducting the 9th. I was 14. Class trip. Classmates were not surprised I would hang out in the classical section. I 'discovered' music two years before after hearing Beethoven's 6th...

    ^ Good observations. I agree. Yggy seems to do the usual things well and bring different things into play as well...enjoy!

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Whilst it seemed entirely possible Yggy just wasn't for you, I'm glad to hear it's working out. Your experience is similar to most of us. Yggy is a different technology, different even from other multi-bit solutions. It does different things. And even has its own rules about how long it takes...
