Schiit Audio Yggdrasil Digital to Analog Converter [Expired]


no longer for sale

The Schiit Yggdrasil is one of the best bang-for-the buck DAC's on the market today. Schiit has broken new ground with their technology and the sound has to be heard to be appreciated. This unit is about a year old, completely clean cosmetically and functionally. buy with confidence ---see my 15 year 100% positive track record. 

Here's info from the manufacturer: 

Forget everything you know about DACs. Yggdrasil is the world’s only closed-form multibit DAC, delivering 21 bits of resolution with no guessing anywhere in the digital or analog path. We’ve thrown out delta-sigma D/As and traditional digital filters to preserve the original samples all the way through from input to output. Let’s take a closer look:

Closed-Form Digital Filter Preserves Original Samples

Most DACs simply use the stock digital filters embedded in their D/A converters. But even the most sophisticated ones, using their own digital filter algorithms, don’t have what Yggdrasil has—a time- and frequency-domain optimized digital filter with a true closed-form solution. This means it retains all the original samples, performing a true interpolation. This digital filter gives you the best of both NOS (all original samples retained) and upsampling (easier filtering of out-of-band noise) designs—and it is only available on Yggdrasil. 

21 Bits, No Guessing: Mission-Critical D/A Technology

When doctors are trying to diagnose whether you have gas or cancer from MRI results, or when the military is trying to ensure a missile hits an ammo dump and not a nunnery next door, they don’t use “24 bit” or “32 bit” delta-sigma D/A converters. Instead, they rely on precision, multibit ladder DACs, like the Analog Devices AD5791. This allows them the bit-perfect precision they need for critical applications, rather than the guesswork of a delta-sigma. We chose this same critical technology for Yggdrasil. Following these unique D/A converters are sophisticated discrete JFET buffers and summers. 

Adapticlock and USB Gen 3: Advanced Input Optimization

Yggdrasil accepts up to 5 digital inputs and carefully manages them with our Adapticlock™ clock regeneration system. Adapticlock is the most sophisticated clock management system in the world. It assesses the quality of all inputs, measures their incoming center frequency and jitter, and automatically routes the input to the best clock regeneration system. Yggdrasil also  features our all-new USB Gen 3 input module, for exceptional USB input performance.

Made in USA 

By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Yggdrasil—chassis, boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our board house is 20 minutes away from our office in Newhall. Our chassis guys are just over the hill in the Valley.
