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

    No, it wouldn’t.
    It requires swapping the analog boards. You essentially would need to perform the $500 multi bit upgrade to get the Analog2 boards.

    Which I'd be totally willing to do! So was this announced somewhere? Is this just community knowledge?

    They haven't announced anything publicly, I think in keeping with their slouching towards kaizen philosophy. You could always message info@Schiit.com directly. Jason and Baldr alluded somewhere about Yggy A2 upgrades causing them pain. I'm sure Gumby owners would appreciate an upgrade path if Gumby A2 does exist, so hopefully they will roll it out publicly at some point.

    Jason wrote in one of his chapters abaut Yggy A2 upgrade being a total pain in the rear. Basically if I remember correctly wishing they hadn't offered it.

    That’s a shame. Hope they don’t go limp on future upgrades and leave us who bought into their promise out in the cold.

    It's not the upgrade he had a problem with. It was the USB Gen 5 upgrade and the Analog upgrade being offered so close together. It required people to send back Yggdrasil units twice in relatively short order.

    That's a great nugget of wisdom winders.
    Could one then speculate they might be waiting for the new USB to come in before they release Gumby A2 upgrades.

    There was also the issue of the dac chips going to waste since it's not really feasible to desolder them off the A1 boards and reause them for A2 boards.
     
  9. winders
    I would not speculate on that.

    That was not an issue so much as a reality of the process. That is why the analog upgrade is more expensive than it otherwise would be.

    You cannot sell "used" chips in new equipment. So, the old devices are only recycle fodder.

    If the DAC chips were not soldered on the board, they could have reused them in the same customer's DAC with the upgrade.
     
  13. Brubacca
    Possibly they are waiting for the new USB to be implemented and would do both at the same time.

    I like this logic from Rensek

    Are there any impressions from the Schiiter meet the other night? I am really hoping to hear that Rag 2 is no good so I don’t need to order one immediately.
