    Why don't you buy a Mimby and get a taste of multibits. If you don't like it within 15 days, return it at a cost of restocking fee. If you like it, return it anyway and buy a Yggy.

    Paint marker, extra fine point?

    Yeah UT, I got used to feeling it, but using my T1s I keep the volume on 10-11, and using the Euforia as a pre-amp I keep the volume at max. So I want to avoid surprises (AKA rude awakening) when switching and thus I need visual verification instead of tactile verification. (Is that legal language, pct?)

    Me too!

    Hi Oskari,

    Was thinking of a fine point correction pen, but the tip may be too wide.

    I don't know about the legal stuff. I cry whenever I think of anything between Euforia and the transducer. It just seems so "unnatural" to me.

    Speaking of unnatural, you might want to be careful using such words as "tactile" with @UntilThen. He loves to talk about stroking his Euforia, which has raised my eyebrows. If this keeps up, I may have to go to confession. Oh wait, I'm not Catholic!!! Well, I'm just going to go write in my diary for a while. I keep it on a private server in my bathroom so no one can ever read it.

    Anything else you'd like my help with??? :triportsad:

    I'm sorry, last time I was tactile with the Euforia I burned my fingers on the power tubes lol.....Those Bendixes read 149C on my infrared thermometer.

    What's da matter? Don't you like my new HD800 avatar? It's pure bliss and euphoria.

    I wanted a Yggy avatar but all I could find were trees.

    I'm using optical connection from PC to Yggy. I can't hear any difference between optical and USB. They both sound awesome.
    I tried optical from PC to Yggy and I could not detect any difference with USB. They both sounded awesome. I'll just enjoy my music for now and not over think this. :smile_phones:

    For those who believe some benefit can be derived from thinking, I want to clarify that my PC doesn't have optical output and I have never tried it with Bimby. However, back in my audiophile days I know many considered it an inferior connection (similar to how some people now consider USB inferior). I have seen comments on HeadFi critical of the optical output from MACs. Not sure about PCs.

    I can say for sure that using the SPDIF output from my ASUS card has brought a noticeable improvement, but I am using the lowly Bimby which doesn't hold a candle in the wind to Yiggy.

    I'm considering this as my next avatar:

    Maybe this?

    You'll be surprised how good the 'lowly' USB gen 3 in Yggy sounds.... until such time when you are ready to spring for the $795 Lynx E22 to pair with your $2299 Yggy.... and by the time you do that, you will find that the best option would be to get a good CD transport..... and by the time you do that, you realise why all the fuss, should have just gotten a top end turntable and sell the DAC. And by the time you have gotten the top end turntable, you realise what the ..... did I do that... let's just go back to iPhone and earbud for convenience.

    To which I shall quote Hamlet, Why, then, 'tis none to you, for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

    Now I shall quote myself. Yggy is not just a world tree but a DAC you need to try out for yourself. It's that good.... with just 16/44.1 flacs. :)

    Apply paint, wipe the excess off, hope some paint stays in the groove?

    Lowly Thinker says: There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments, and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance—that principle is contempt prior to investigation.

    As for me, I choose to follow my bliss, which for me is SPDIF.


    I give the last word to whomever feels they need it.
