Yggdrasil Reviews Schiit Audio Yggdrasil D/A processor VideoYggdrasil Review - with Tom Vasel
The Ragnarok is a powerful integrated amp which not only has the ability to drive loudspeakers but also the finesse to run sensitive in-ear monitors.
Some may be concerned that a do-it-all machine would cut corners and benefit only a subset of equipment but Schiit have tactfully avoided this issue through the implementation of a level relay-switched stepped attenuator.
Unlike single-ended amplifiers, Schiit have utilized a Circlotron circuit that delivers relatively high voltage levels to high capacitance loads.
The main advantage of such topologies being the linear frequency response and handling of fast transient gradients. These come at the cost of a higher level of power consumption, however, and while certainly not the hottest amp around, can dissipate a fair amount of heat in the process.
While there is no option for tubes at the moment, the modular nature of the Ragnarok means that Schiit can potentially employ a hybrid-tube design in the future.
With that said, the headphone side of the solid-state amplifier essentially runs as a Class A device and the speaker side as a Class AB device.
This ultimately allows higher sensitivity equipment to be played with lower levels of distortion while enabling power-hungry devices to be played with higher levels of efficiency.
The potentiometer is very tactile and smooth to the touch. It implements the aforementioned relay-switched attenuator which results in normal clicking when the volume is turned up.
The process is surprisingly satisfying to use and is reminiscent of a typewriter in action. An important point Schiit have drawn attention to is that care must be taken when using the balanced headphones.
This is because the Ragnarok is a powerful amp and can deliver its full output power when using such configurations. Rear The rear of the Ragnarok hosts a wealth of options for the user.
This amp also includes a 56VA separate transformer in use of high voltage rails. In idle circumstances, the Ragnarok gives out 75W of power while delivering W at full capacity.
Jason Stoddard who runs the analogue side of Schiit has gone to far lengths to create a world-class integrated amp. The same rings true for the 16 Ohm U12 IEM from 64 Audio which coupled with the low noise and distortions make the Ragnarok superb in matchability.
With regards to tonality, the Ragnarok synergizes very well with the Yggdrasil. Consumer Electronics Show CES CES Rocky Mountain Audio Fest RMAF RMAF AXPONA AXPONA AXPONA Montreal Audio Expo Montreal Montreal Miscellaneous Florida Audio Expo Capital AudioFest Toronto Audiofest T.

RE: JA's odd comments Submitted by John Atkinson on January 30, - am. SteveG wrote:. Prior to this review, I was cynical that the original Yggdrasil could be improved upon; it demonstrated how good music could sound with both detail and space.
However, the Yggdrasil Analog 2 proved me wrong with an even bigger and more impressive soundscape. Firstly, while the Yggdrasil demonstrably portrayed great levels of detail and resolution amongst a black background, the Analog 2 appears to better that with more immersive micro and macro-dynamics.
The same vinyl natural organic tone, however, has been maintained with a certain added smoothness. For those wishing for a complete laidback tone, may wish to look elsewhere, as the Analog 2 still retains a tastefully precise sound which invokes clarity and depth.
With regards to imaging, the Analog 2 improves on the soundstage dimensions of its predecessor with more of a centre and holographic staging.
Transients are fantastic and sonic cues are projected both wide as they are deep. Particularly impressive, is how natural and organic notes sound while still being full of articulacy and tautness.
Once again, I thought Yggdrasil GS to be more nuanced and slamming. I vastly preferred the Yggdrasil's staging here and voicing; speakers is where the Yggdrasil GS's stage shines.
I had a lot of fun blasting Michael Jackson, the Bee Gees, etc. However, I only got to the Eagles before my whole family was screaming at me that I was "disturbing the peace and quiet.
Overall, I'd say the Yggdrasil GS sounds grand, incisive, and lively. If you like the Schiit multibit sound, don't overlook this DAC; it's still a Yggdrasil and to me it really shows good gear doesn't turn to shit because new gear came out.
Highly recommended if you want a Yggdrasil but don't want a warmer presentation, but highly not recommended if you're not looking for an emotional engagement plankton machine.
Plus, the Gungnir A2 now has the Unison input. I did not evaluate the SE out on the Yggdrasil GS, which I'm sure is fine but is known to be worse than using a quality transformer.
Also, I used a variety of headphones with each amp; if you have any specific questions do not hesitate to ask below or through PM.

Dana Reed Since you own both, can you share your thoughts on how the Gungnir A2 and the Yggdrasil GS compare? Melvillian , Jul 14, Joined: Jul 12, Likes Received: 16 Dislikes Received: 11 Trophy Points: 3 Location: miami.
Maybe because of that I can place them in space even in my headphone system, which has a Bimby rather than the Yggy which graces the 2-channel system in the living room.
Sad that this amazing trio won't be reassembled, with Larry Coryell's recent passing and John Abercrombie's serious illness.
Pros : A taste of high-end performance at a price point within reach for many. Cons : Continuous power recommended for optimum performance, No DSD support, Generally available in only one color - Silver.
Black is available on occasion. Introduction In February , I joined Head-Fi where I was re-introduced to the world of headphones. Prior to joining, I had a passing familiarity with various offerings from STAX, but my primary interest was in analog two-channel speaker based systems.
Jumping into the deep end of the Head-Fi pool, I came to learn about the world of computer audio, digital audio files, and signal formats and, of course, DACs.
Since then I've owned DACs from PSAudio, Wyred for Sound, and Benchmark. But I've always dreamed of owning a high-end DACs from manufacturers like Berkeley Audio Design, MSB, dCS, TotalDAC, Light Harmonic, and others.
Ultra high-end DACs, unfortunately, came with hefty five-figure price tags that were mostly out of reach for not only myself, but also a large percentage of the audio enthusiast community.
However, in April , Schiit Audio launched a new DAC, the Yggdrasil, designed by legendary designer Mike Moffat founder of Theta Digital. This new entry to the DAC market stands to shatter the high-end cost barrier and make high-end DACs more affordable to a wider audience.
Over the past month, I had the opportunity to compare the Schiit Audio Yggdrasil to the Benchmark Media Systems DAC1 PRE Note, the Benchmark model in this comparison is no longer in production and was replaced by a newer model as noted in the equipment list following this review.
Then I'll conclude with an explanation of why I'm keeping the Yggdrasil that's right, for me the Yggy is a keeper. With the Benchmark, I was able to switch directly between the Yggy and the Benchmark both connected via USB from my desktop Windows 7 computer.
The Benchmark, however, had the added benefit of being connected to the computer via an Audiophilleo 2 USB converter.
Even with the preamp function of the Benchmark, switching between the two DAC was not instantaneous. There was additional delay due to also having switch USB devices in JRiver.
Nevertheless, I mastered the entire switching process that eventually only took a matter of seconds to complete. Identical single-ended DIY RCA interconnects were used for DAC, preamp and amp connections, and to the extent possible, output levels were matched between the DACs.
I've spent an inordinate amount of time comparing the Yggdrasil with the Benchmark to ensure my findings were repeatable, and my views on the two DACs would not change over time.
This describes the perceived distance i. The perspective differences described here apply primarily to speakers. I find that the sound field differences between speakers and headphones make this subjective measurement less applicable to headphones.
Relative to the Benchmark, the presentation of the Yggy is slightly recessed, but not excessively so. The Yggy places performers at a comfortable distance from the listener.
The forward presentation of the Benchmark can be a bit edgy and aggressive, and fatiguing on some recordings. Vocals are placed a few feet farther back with the Yggy.
Reactions: malikarshad , Argo Duck , Light - Man and 10 others. Yggy is 2. While I mostly agree with your statements, it's important to note I'm an audio enthusiast and not a professional reviewer.
