@amirm Hello amirm. I'm a rather satisfied owner of the Yggy (V2, and originally had V1). I have read every post in your "Measurements and Review of Schiit Yggdrasil DAC" thread on the audioscience review site. Suffice it say I'm inclined to be interested as to why the Yggy measures as poorly as you have found and document. I lack the technical knowledge to offer meaningful rebuttal, so I'll take it you are correct (even about the comparison and interpretation to atomic bobs measurements). I've posted herein this thread on headfi a few times, citing your findings in order to seek additional clarity, other perspectives, etc., and some have offered a few items into evidence as to why your data should be ignored. Nevertheless, I haven't read anything compelling that in my mind would cause me to completely ignore your words. So given the aforementioned, can you please speculate as to why the Yggydrasil produces sound quality that essentially belies its measurements? Similarly, can you please speculate as to why the Yggydrasil produces sound quality that is essentially "better" or "preferred" to many other DACs (especially sabre delta sigma chips) in its price class? In this context, assume that there is more to it than simply subjective listening preferences, but more objective impressions from qualified listeners (musicians and those with formal music education background) who can discern the Yggy in a blind test. And of course, this is PCM only and is irrespective of bit depth and sample rate. Thank you.
