    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Hi guys! I've been using the Yggy A2 for a while now and I really like it. However I have a slight problem - the output of the Yggy is too loud. Now that I have a new transport (the Pi2Design PI2AES) it outputs even louder signal to my amp. The chain is as follows: PI2AES Volumi => Grimm TPR...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    Hi guys! Just received the last peace of my audio equipment puzzle - the PI2AES transport. I have hooked it to the Yggy A2 through AES/EBU XLR and then to the V281 with XLR cables (Grimm TPR). I can't believe how well the V281 scales with better and better source signal. I could easily hear how...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    I have heard the v800 (which people say is very similar to v850) in a shop and had the Rme for almost a month before returning it. I couldn't find difference between the v800 and my Fiio X3 II player used as a DAC (the Fiio is much cheaper) on the v281 and HD800S. So, I was disappointed with...

    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Hi guys, it seems I will be joining the Yggy club soon as my unit will arrive in a few days. I've ordered a new unit, so it will be USB Gen5 and Analog 2. I have a question about the inputs of the Yggy. Which input will be better between the USB and SPDIF? Option 1 (Preferred): Buy a DigiOne...

    All things Metrum Acoustics

    Hi, I just got my Metrum Onyx a few days ago and so far I'm very impressed by it. I was wondering if getting a Matrix X-SPDIF 2 and feeding the Onyx through the AES or the SPDIF will improve the sound? If yes, is the AES or the SPDIF preferable? I have heard that the USB input of the Onyx is...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    Thank you very much for this response. It's nice to hear someone else had similar experience. I also often feel that my head will explode and not feeling particularly happy in this journey anymore. It's starting to take too much effort and time. On some occasions I wonder if it will be better...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    I will definitely listen to the ADI-2 more. Actually, today it seems to sound better for some reason. Nevertheless, the unpleasant harsh bright treble is still there depending on the song. I think Qutest and ADI-2 will meet at my place as the return period for the ADI-2 is 30 days (still 27...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    It will be interesting experience to try good tube amp. I heard very good things about the EC Balancing Act, also it's listed on the InnerFidelity's wall of fame as one of the best in the world. The thing is not only I don't have the possibility to try it, but also I don't know how to buy it in...

    Violectric HPA V281 - Vorsprung durch Balanced

    I have the v281 for a few days, so I'm new to it. My impressions so far are that it is amazingly good technically - separation, clarity, soundstage, dynamics, detail, you name it... I've never heard music sound so real. It's like every sound is physically there. And there are a lot more positive...

    Violectric DAC V850 - General Discussion and Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the answers. I read a lot before making a decision and yes, there are a lot of positive impressions about Violectric products around here. Also I had the opportunity to hear some of their units at a local store. That is why I went with v281 and now probably the v850. There are also...
