    Schiit Yggdrasil Impressions thread

    Got my Yggy today and I'm happy to report that there are no USB issues with the 5K iMac, waking from sleep or otherwise.     I repurposed my Gungnir too -- ended up with a Raspberry PI 2 + Hifiberry Digi+ > SPDIF RCA to BNC > Gungnir > WA6 > TH-900. I shouldn't be at this point, but...

    Headphone & Amp/Receiver Recommendations!

    Hi,   I'm interested in headphones (around-the-ear) for $400-600 and I was thinking about the HE-400.   I mainly listen to Rock, Country & R&B and will be sourcing from my Macbook Pro. Let me know if I should choose another headphone!   In addition, I'm a bit confused about amps?  ...

    Recommendation for Portable DAC

    I've been using the Fiio E7 with my Android phone for some time now and I'm happy with the sound. However I'm looking to reduce the bulk of my setup so I'm in the market for a small DAC/amp to replace the E7. I've been looking at the Dragonfly from Audioquest as well as the Fulla from Schiit. I...

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

    tl;dr: Buy this DAC. Spot on tonality, perfect timbre, perfect rendition of every freaking detail you could ever want, speed, resolution, I’ve never heard anything like it.     Intro: I’d like to preface this review with two caveats: 1. The version of the DAC I demoed was a...

    Who is thinking of buying the Schiit Yggdrasil?

    **** This is NOT a real pre-order thread : it's merely an attempt to gauge interest in Yggdrasil beyond a hardcore group in two threads ****   I have zero affiliation with Schiit and - at this point in time - dont own a single Schiit product, but if the mods feel I'm needlessly contributing to...

    New user, but not new to the awesome info here.

    Hey all, like most I've done tons of research in lines of what my wallet can handle and I'm starting to build quite a collection of 'junk' (per this forms standards!).   I own some Schiit stuff, some Fiio stuff and a collection of older turntables and seem to change my mind about setups more...

    UK Audio Product Retaillers

    Living in the UK it can be very hard to find some of the more exotic audio brands and products online, so I thought it'd be a good idea to collate them in one thread. I ought to warn you in advance that the links posted won't necessarily be of authorised dealers so be careful that you're not...

        Wow, this lady looks great... but do you notice what's wrong with this picture?              Anyway, how about them HD598s? It's been long enough since their release, so I'm sure you guys must have some very mature impressions of them by now!

    Headphones for < $300?

    Hello,   I'm on the quest for headphones on a budget of $300.   Sound: Looking for a lush, full sound that is especially strong with mids for reproducing female vocals while not being especially lacking in other areas. Punchy mid-bass and rumbling sub-bass are a plus. I also don't want...

    Hey everyone,   Planning to get either the AKG 550s, DT 770's, or the ATH-A900X's fort gaming purposes soon.   I was just wondering:   Is it better to get both the schiit stack and, as an example, a Sound Blaster Z?   Would that benefit the sound at all? Or should I get one or the other...

    Schiit Happens.....A Lesson In Customer Service.

    About two weeks ago I purchased a Lyr 1 ( Black ) direct from Schiit Central in Valencia , Ca. Unfortunately I found that this amplifier had a very low level of static on one channel. I contacted Customer Service at Schiit by email and Nick got back to me within the hour. We did some basic...
