I'm selling my Schiit Yggdrasil DAC as part of an overdue audio equipment downsizing effort. I'm the first owner and the unit was bought directly from Schiit in Nov 2015 (not B-stock). It is in near-mint condition. No visible blemishes, scratches or dents, except for one small scratch at the bottom face. Since acquisition this DAC has been very under-utilized by me for various reasons. It has less than 200 hours of accumulated listening time, though it underwent a burn-in period of about 4 weeks immediately after purchase. Among my DACs, the Yggdrasil still delivers the most engaging and natural sounding vocals (especially female). I consider this a key strength of Yggy over my two other DACs costing more. Unit will be shipped in original Schiit double box packing. Original contents including power cord and manual are included. Shipping to continental USA Paypal address only. Local pickup from San Francisco Bay Area welcome. Will ship out of Cupertino, California. Shipping weight is 25.4 lbs. Asking $1799 (firm). I will cover Paypal fee. Buyer to pay for shipping. PM me with questions or offers.
You probably already know about: https://www.facebook.com/stereophilemag/posts/10155024621014198 Now I would like to ask a question in the hopes of clarifying/improving my knowledge of DACs - to me, from what I know, I do believe that JA is confusing input bit depth with actual resolution of the DAC, which is 20 bits as per the ultra high precision, non audio parts used by our friends at Schiit, and at most 19 bits on most delta-sigma DACs. Is this a true statement ? Thanks! v
I'd like to report a couple of driver related issues with my Yggdrasil, discovered just today. Admittedly these issues are not new, but there has apparently been little or no progress for a few months: 1. Schiit ASIO driver does not support Windows 10 (or Windows Server 2016). This driver can apparently install against Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2, all the way back to Windows XP, but if you are running Windows 10 (any edition) or WS2016 you are going to be SOL. 2. USB 2.0 Audio Class driver in pre-releases of upcoming Windows 10 RS2 ("Creators Edition") fails to work with Yggdrasil. The DAC shows up as a "yellow bang" device in Device Manager, with error code 10 "device cannot start" and the error log indicates a "migration" failure. This error was reported some months ago over at head-fi, closer to when Microsoft initially introduced the USB 2.0 Audio Class driver (usbaudio2.sys) into their RS2 builds. I tested with a very recent RS2 build (just days old) today with my Yggy and got the same result. Mike M., if you are reading this, I'd like to know whether Schiit has provided Microsoft with a Yggdrasil sample for them to work on this yellow bang issue. Microsoft's USB 2.0 Audio Class driver has progressed to the point of properly supporting playback with several USB DACs I have, and the Yggy (being my only Schiit) stands out with this functional failure. Microsoft is only days from locking down Win10 RS2 for general availability release, so it may be too late, but I would hate to see the Yggy sustain this compatibility hit with Microsoft's latest OS. Sure, the Schiit supplied Win10 driver works fine with RS2, but many other DACs will soon have a driver choice (inbox vs. manufacturer supplied) with Win10 RS2.
Hello guys, I hope this will become the new thread for all things Yggy. I hope this thread will be glitch-free. Pun intended. I hope we see the familiar faces, and some others, not so much. Mike (Baldur) paid us a visit once in a while. I hope we will see you more often now that your neck has been upgraded. I will start with a first question: any of you tried tweaking your Yggy?
