Yup an analog output stage overhaul. Maybe Schiit can use their Nexus for both balanced and SE out without the need for buffers and summers.

Small question : Did you read other people's reviews of Amirm's own reviews in order to ascertain how reliable they might be, or did you simply take his words at face value, like you would the audio version of The Book of Revelation, for example? No wait, never mind. You have already posted your own verdict here, so I guess you have already made up your mind, and the whole matter is settled for you. My bad..., or too bad. :)

Now excuse me while I strut off to enjoy the audio nectar of my exquisite Yggy A2, oh yeah, another dose of the nectar, for the thousand and Nth time, and still counting :)

That guy is a word that rhymes with "tool." See what I did there?

I would read whatever he says and believe the opposite.

I go by how things sound, and right now, I have my Yggy2 (fed with AES Lynx Soundcard) playing through the original Freya on my downstairs speaker system and it sounds fantastic to me!!!! Don't really care about "measurements"

I was sold the idea of multibit technology sounds better than delta sigma and unfortunately I realized it wasn't. You guys might ask why I ended it up at this point?

well, I just bought a $99 khadas tone board and after hours of testing I can confirm its sounds better than my more expensive multibit unit, I was in shocked and disappointed at the same time asking myself why a $99 cheap unit was better than my multibit dac? why? measurements guys, they really matter after all, and I want to thank amirm from ASR forum for educating us at this hobby's side very unknown by many and advising us about the tech behind a DAC.

This little unit has significant better SINAD than multibit and this might be the reason I'm hearing more details now in my 'Jelly Roll Gum Drop' song and other albums from Zappa.

I know this is hard to admit it, especially when you have spent +$2000 in a DAC and somehow you must believe inside your head you did it right paying this much for the best, but trust me, there're several cheaper better options out there.

Now excuse me while I strut off to enjoy the audio nectar of my exquisite better SINAD and less distortion resulting in more pure audio signal Khadas Tone Board, oh yeah, another dose of the nectar, for the thousand and Nth time, and still counting :)

Well, if the rest of your system is $99, that would explain it. Not aways measurements 😀
