    The New Schiit Audio Yggdrasil Impressions thread (read the first post)

    I like it so much I have 2 Yggys. One runs through a Woo Wa5 to Zu Druid (or Abyss Phi) Using Modwright Oppo 95 for the transport. I'm late to streaming because I have terrible internet (2.5 Mbps on a good day ) Anyway, I finally hooked up a just OK laptop with Win 10 via USB to the Yggy so I...

    I'm in San Diego. In fact I am thinking of selling my head gear because I mostly listen to speaker systems.

    I think the Tung Sol 6F8G and the 6SN7 have the exact same internal structure but the glass shape is the only difference. I tried the 6F8G once but got a couple duds I think.

    Pretty sure you want the settings: Speaker Hi Power Impedance Low Level High But no doubt you know that. What tubes are you using? Will reiterate Wa5 has a lot more finesse than the Headtrip. Headtrip is great but a little hard around the edges compared to the WA5. I use a Modwright Oppo 95...

    Had to go to Schiit site to download drivers. Up and running! Thank you!

    Didn't think to switch the input to USB so the computer would recognize the Yggy. Thanks.

    OK. Lame question: How do I get a music signal from my computer to my Yggy? What program do I use to stream Tidal via USB? Another question: is it possible to play Sirius XM from my computer to my Yggy? I have Sirius in my car with their very compressed audio. Via Internet they have a higher...

    Reichert: "Analog 2's sound was quieter, more refined, more transparent, more silky, more tactile. If you liked the Yggdrasil, you'll love the Analog 2. I promise." I know about the wait. I ordered the upgrade in January and waited a while. I have another Yggy in a system I don't use that much...

    If you want to wait a few months, get on the list now. They don't charge your card until the work is done.

    Upgrade process pretty slow. I've moved from135 to 98 in 2 months. At this rate will take another 6 months. Could be tempted to sell and just buy new.

    Pathos Aurium anyone?

    I moved on from Pathos Aurium to Woo Audio WA5 and Wells Audio Headtrip. (With Abyss headphones.) Woo WA5 is near the top of the pile for tube HP amps, and Headtrip is near the top of the pile for SS HP amps. Had both those amps for the last year and a half, but let the Headtrip go because I...

    Pathos Aurium anyone?

    Telefunkin 6922 is awesome. Will definitely make a major difference. Price is per tube. Expensive for a reason. Get platinum, cryo not important IMO. Don't know about mid/treble "energy", but most delicious midrange ever. A better power supply would be a good thing no doubt. But it's wacky to...

    The JPS Labs: Abyss AB-1266 Impressions Thread

    So why do you suppose everyone puts up with the ergonomic challenges, not to mention the price of the Abyss??? Hint: Maybe it's because the Abyss sound quality smokes everything else out there. (Including the Utopia IMO. Closed in sound stage is a deal breaker for me.) Skubinski is going to have...
