    Life after Yggdrasil?

    Update (5/11/17): While I mentioned it in the thread at the time, I should point out that I am no longer pursuing this process - nor am I updating this thread going forward. This means sending suggestions/requests for DACs to be included in the list is unnecessary. It also means that any...

    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...

    yggdrasil technical measurements

    2015.12.12 update - THD measurement corrected.   I will never know how the first three hours of the yggdrasil sounded as I let the DAC warm up for an hour and proceeded to make technical measurements. If the measurements presented are familiar territory, then you should be as impressed as I...

    Chord Hugo / Schiit Yggdrasil. Anyone heard both?

    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...

    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...
