    New Schiit! Ragnarok and Yggdrasil

    A note from my Yggy experiences is that the quality of the usb power feeding the yggy can have an impact on the sound quality, but that the quality you get from even a noisy usb port is still amazing. I was running a cheap linear power supply into a ppa card to feed the Yggy, but after returning...

    I'm under the impression that the samples fit into the 352/384 signal, so it's not traditional oversampling. I believe Mike mentioned it earlier in the thread.

    Pretty close to exactly 7 and a half days since I turned on the Yggy and I'm pretty thrilled by this plus the Rag. I've spent the last hour listening to $100 earbuds through $4k of equipment and i'm having trouble finding anything particularly lacking. (vsonic gr07) Yggy rocks major ballz. I'm...

    It doesn't take much a/b'ing between my Yggy and Modi to notice an obvious difference between how the 2 handle reverb present in music. Things like Daft Punk tend to make it more obvious at first listen.

    Herbies audio makes some somewhat expensive stuff that works well. Might be a far cheaper diy option out there though.

    Yggdrasil: A (P)review - Two days of paradise

    My Yggy draws around 30 watts. That's like 1 Yggy. ;) Overall not a big deal especially considering what you get in terms of performance.

    Just checked optical, which sounds fine. Guess something broke for the usb gen 3? I try messing with some other stuff.   Edit: Restarting my computer did the trick. Guess the gen 3 driver is still a little rough. I'm really happy I won't be crying myself to sleep right now.

    ****. Think my yggy just broke. Really large amount of static coming through regardless of what i play. Gonna try different inputs/ shut it down.

    Rag + Kef LS50's + HSU VTF-2 MK4, using usb. Also just turned off the sub for a moment thinking it was largely responsible for changes i'm hearing, as i've been adjusting it's levels since introducing the yggy. Nope. The ls50's suddenly hit very hard and sound extraordinary.

    Tax return + I'm terrible with money. I been spending most of it on audio stuff, but that's only possible because college is free for me (desperate for comp. sci. in my area). Tuition is being covered by the state.

    This schiit is getting ridiculous. The imaging is ******* ridiculous. I don't even know how to describe what i'm hearing. Holy schiit guys.   Edit: Want to add that the greatest thing about the Yggy is how let down I felt when I first heard it cold. It was terribly unexciting and nothing stood...

    It is quite capable of producing what some are calling "sounds and noises". Really quite spectacular, mmmm, yes. Absolutely dapper.  Have been too preoccupied with homework today to run anymore comparisons, but I'm sure dozens of us will post tons of updates over the next few days.

    Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    Want to thank the messiah for keeping up the endless comparisons between dacs, because I can't afford to. This thread has been instrumental to navigating the world of dacs for me personally and I thank you!   Looking forward to the Yggy's arrival.

    I only have a modi optical for comparison atm, so that's all I have for direct shootouts. I expect it to be a close fought battle...
