Hey Guys - It's really cool to finally announce this to the CA Community. All the fans of the Yggdrasil will be happy to read that Schiit Audio has made it even better. Schiit update the analog stage of the Yggdrasil big time.
I've been using this analog 2 update for several months, but couldn't say anything. In fact, in my Schiit Audio Reference System Part 1 article, I was using the Analog 23 update in my Yggdrasil, but had to just call it "the upgraded Yggy."
Anyway, I'm writing part two to the Schiit series as you read this announcement. Here is the info directly from Schiit:
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 4 years since Yggdrasil shook up the high-end DAC market. But hey, time flies. And now it’s time for an update—to Yggdrasil Analog 2.
Yggdrasil Analog 2 includes many refinements, including all-new Class A, DC-coupled discrete FET buffer stages and completely different internal board structure. The result is increased line driving capability, slightly lower noise and distortion, and…most importantly…significantly better sound!*
*Yeah, that’s subjective. Yeah, we’re biased. So sue us.
In any case, Yggdrasil Analog 2 has been shipping since late October, so many Yggdrasil owners have been enjoying it for some time. And, keeping Schiit’s promise of upgradability, all older Yggdrasils can be upgraded to Yggdrasil Analog 2.
Yggdrasil with Analog 2 is available now for $2399
Yggdrasil Analog 2 upgrades are available now for $550
