    Letting go this reference level DAC which needs no introduction.
    It's a A1 version, 110V, and is in excellent condition. No visible scratch or marks.
    It obviously comes with the original double box.
    Why am I selling it? Because life happens :) I just had a baby girl and won't have time to listen to music (in audiophile conditions) any time soon. As crazy as it sounds, a simple UE boom 3 will suffice....

    If some background information is really required...

    – Stereophile : https://www.stereophile.com/content/sch … -processor : « Which sounds best: CDs? SACDs? Hi-rez downloads? I am a lifelong gearhead audiophile, and by 1992 I had embraced CDs and collected them with childlike enthusiasm. Now, all I desire is a simple audio system that plays real music, via headphones or loudspeakers, with conspicuous palpability, precise temporality, and poetic insight. The Schiit Yggdrasil DAC does all that. I think it would do a magnificent job of anchoring a giant-killing budget system »

    – The Absolute sound (http://www.theabsolutesound.com/article … ac/?page=3) « I don’t know how Schiit Audio has done it, but the $2300 Yggy is in many ways competitive with any DAC I’ve heard regardless of price. In some criteria—transient speed without etch, clarity of musical line, whole-body involvement—the Yggy is as good as digital gets. Yet the Yggy’s bold incisiveness may not resonate with listeners who prefer a more relaxed and easygoing sound. I, however, have no such reservation; this is a DAC I could listen to and enjoy for a long time. In fact, there was something different about the Yggy that pushed my buttons—I felt a musical exhilaration that was experienced not as some intellectual abstraction, but at a more fundamentally visceral level »

    – Sound Stage Hifi (https://www.soundstagehifi.com/index.ph … -2-upgrade) « The Yggdrasil provided beautiful, musical sound even when fed challenging recordings from digital’s early days. Clear imaging, large and solid soundstaging, linear frequency response, and a particularly fabulous midrange all make the Schiit Yggdrasil an excellent DAC at any price »

    – Computer Audiophile (https://www.computeraudiophile.com/ca/r … ac-review/) : « It’s one of my favorite DACs available today. In fact, I will happily mention the Yggdrasil in the same sentence as some of my other favorites, the Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC RS ($16,000) and the EMM Labs DAC2X ($15,500), when talking to fellow audio enthusiasts. The Yggdrasil is one of those products that subtly grabs hold of the listener, yet the listener is the one who can’t let go. I couldn’t stop listening through the Yggdrasil enough to write this review on time. The Yggdrasil is a musically addictive drug without the expense and potential repercussions. When something is this enjoyable and the consequences of continuing its use aren’t dire, the result is a foregone conclusion. More listening. The Yggdrasil has a rare ability to reproduce acoustic music on a level with some of the best DACs I’ve heard »

    Hello. Can it be used here in Europe? Does it have a switch 110/220?
     
  6. LeMat
    There is no 110V/220V switch, however, you can use a step down converter. The Yggy is just 45w and won't require a bulky and expensive transformer.

    Ultimately, if you're interested in upgrading it to the Analogue 2 version, Schiit is partnering with a service centre based in NL. I'm sure they can do the mod so you can use it in native 220v.

    Thanks! I can definitely concur in the hard side of things :wink: still learning the ropes of parenting... Very steep learning curve! Hoping this sale to go smoothly.

    Interested! Is this Usb gen 5 :)
     
  14. LeMat
    No USB Gen5. Based on all the reviews, I decided to use the coax input using a Singxer F1.

    Note to those interested in the Gen5, you can easily install it yourself for $100.
