    Well, if the rest of your system is $99, that would explain it. Not aways measurements 😀

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

    The Union upgrade did not work for me. In MY system the Gen card worked best. Like most things in hi-end audio, you just have to try it in YOUR system. I will say, it is not a night and day difference. In my System, it was just too bright. I’m using a Pass 60 intergrated and dyn audio speakers...

    Is there a break in period for a unison install?

    I would not say gen 5 to unison is gigantic at all. I installed a unison in a Yggy A and at first listen I thought it was really good. Then after extended listening, there was a brightness that did not sit well with me. I install the gen 5 back in and ears were more satisfied. Sent my Yggy in...

    I have an early Yggy and have The unison board installed. Had the Gen 5 before, and I hear an improvement. Biggest change is better shimmy on cymbals and a tighter and cleaner bass. The difference Is not night and day, but certainly worth the 150. I’m happy.

    It was not dramatic but more than subtle. If it makes any difference, I have a pass labs interacted amp.

    Just received my unison board for my yggy. Shipping was very fast. I think I ordered the the board this past Tuesday and it arrived today(Friday). Install took about 15 minutes with the help of a diagram I got from another site. I previous had the gen 5 board and I was very happy with the sound...

    Try blowing some air in the earcups. I had a squeal on a brand new pair if 950"s. I just blew in the earcups and have not have a problem since.

    Now that I think about it, at one time my yggy was bright sounding, but I noticed that there were differences in the sound when I changed my USB to Yggy cable. I went with a cardas cable and that took care of any brightness issue. I do not understand why a usb cable from my MAC air to Yggy would...

    B version here. When I was using my I must be lucky. From time to time, the Yggy is describe as being a little bright. In my system(pass lab intergrated)my yggy just disappears. Its like its not in my system. Makes me afraid of this new upgrade,as Im not sure a change of sound would be good...

    So, You have installed the G5 and at the same time you use the Eitr on Yggy? Just want to make sure I understand this. I have Gen 5 installed in my Yggy, but unfortunately I installed new speakers too. Noticed a bit of brigntness, but not sure where is was coming from.. Thanks for the review...

    Question for your audiophile experts. I am contemplating getting, Freya, and two Vidars. Right now, I am using 2 small NHT book shelf speaker with a sub. Obviously my purchase will be overkill, but since I have a Yggy, I want to run balance. It has been said, that running mono mode sounds better...

    What a long, strange trip it's been -- (Robert Hunter)

    Same for me. There was very little difference if any between my marantz transport, and Mac air to Yggy. Maybe my tube amp has something to do with it. Anyway, I love the convenience of my 3000 album digital library. Would hate to have 3000 cds in my bedroom!

    Hate to bring this up, but have you experimented with any cable changes? My 950 amp is connected to my Schitt Yggy and its a wonderful pairing. There is no problem with air, as far as I can tell. It has been said the 950 are rolled off a bit on top. I did get a better "ting" when I switch to...

    Give then a little break in time and the bass will fill out. My 950 are end gamers for me. But then I'm a tube lover

    I Welcome Sir. I too own a couple pair of porta pros. I love them for riding my bicycle back  and forth to work. As you know, they are great sounding phones for the price. I love my 950's. For me I am totally satisfied  with the sound the way they are. As I get older, and more experience in...

    My Yggy did not sound it's best until about 3 months. I was at first, very dissappointed in the bright sound out of the box. I run my Yggy to a intergrated tube amp and very neutral speakers. Over the 3 month period the sound seemed very unbalanced. When it finally settled, it turned smooth and...
