Overview Reviews 4 Gallery. Army-Firedawg 4. Pros : True purest lifelike sound, hyper detail retrieval, plethora of inputs, solid build, stunning looks.
Cons : To really bring out what makes it so notable, you have to leave it powered on continuously. Takes days to fully warm up.
This beautiful beast of a product is one that I was rather surprised to be humbled with an opportunity to review. You see, while trying to get some interest and vendors to attend or show interest in the audio meet I was putting together I reached out to Schiit on just a pure whim and hope.
And my goodness am I glad I did for they were such an incredible pleasure to work with. The representative I spoke to was full of energy and had a very splendid attitude and sense of humor quite befitting of a company called Schiit.
So to say I was overjoyed and honored would be a vast understatement. But with the introductions aside, please allow me to now give my thoughts and impressions on the dac that has taken root in a many of totl end game setups.
I listen to music to enjoy it. Do I prefer a lossless source? Yes, of course. I've worked hard over the last several years to earn this position and now it's time for me to work even harder to keep it.
Now, the sound signature I personally favor is a relaxing, warm and sensual sound that just drifts me away in the emotional experience of the music being performed.
Yes, accuracy is still important but I will happily sacrifice some of that if I'm presented with a clean, warm sound that can wisp me away into an experience that makes me yearn for more.
My ideal signature are that of respectably forward mids and upper bass range with the bass being controlled but with some slight decay. I like my treble to have nice extension and detail reveal with a smooth roll off up top as to not become harsh in the least.

They were kind enough to send me a product for an arranged amount of time in exchange for my honest opinion. I am making no monetary compensation for this review.
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. Both share a sense of transparency and neutrality which permits recordings to play unperturbed and as originally intended.
Where the Ragnarok really excels though, is its ability to render fast-based transients amidst a tight and clean sound.
Some have likened this to have possessing tube-like qualities and to a degree the sense of space and pleasant character substantiates this claim.
However, unlike tube-based set-ups, the Ragnarok does not really impart the euphonic warm distortions that tubes are generally known for.
An example of this is the MicroZOTL2. Tony in Michigan ps. Herb this another reference article from you. Submitted by rt66indierock on January 20, - pm.

A modern take on A Tale of Two Hmmm, my vote would be the Brooklyn". Let's move forward Multibit with oversampling Submitted by hollowman on December 29, - am.
Herby "Qualified"? Submitted by allhifi on January 12, - am. 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.
Tonally, the Analog 2 impresses with visceral sounding bass and a liquidesque midrange. All in all, the Analog 2 possesses outstanding tonal balance with exquisite imaging.
While other DACs which are overly analytical can be considered too shrill, the Analog 2 infuses detail with musicality which allows users to just lay back and enjoy music for what it is without critically analysing.
Like vinyl, the Analog 2 has even more ebb and flow than the original with a thicker note weight leaning more to the original Gen V.
An important point to comment upon is that, in my opinion, like the original, the Yggdrasil Analog 2 sounds best after 24 to 48 hours of burn-in once the components have reached their thermal equilibrium.
For what it is worth, it also places amongst the best of the best in terms of performance and value for money in what a digital to analogue convertor offers.
That could just be my purchase justification though. Dana Reed , Jan 7, Joined: Mar 13, Likes Received: 49 Dislikes Received: 1 Trophy Points: 18 Location: London.
Does anyone have a guide on how to upgrade the rom? Using marvs usb guide I upgraded to gen 5 last year but no means competent with electronics.
Have ordered the updated rom chip and will give it ago. If it goes well will post pics so that other non-techies know what to do.
If it dosent will need advice on a new dac! Joined: Apr 18, Likes Received: Dislikes Received: 0 Trophy Points: 63 Location: Japan.
Lasollor , Jan 14, Managed to update the rom, not too tricky. Transients immediately seem improved also change in depth with vocals not so forward.

Been warming the Yggdrasil up for 4 weeks now. Noticed clipping on particular electronic tones and was really pissing me off as it never did it before.
Luckily my amp has the option of attenuating by 6db the XLR input and has completely solved the issue. Other sites in the MAC network: JazzMusicArchives.

The latter is a bit of a misnomer because the board actually has the DACs on it which accept digital input. This is a "statement" DAC from Schiit and retail price of $ plus shipping. The Yggdrasil DAC reviewed here is an outlier in the Schiit line; its $ price tag positions it far above the company’s other offerings. (By contrast, Schiit’s Delta-Sigma DACs sell for $99, $, $, and $—the company also offers three multi-bit DACs priced from $ to $). I couldn't stop listening through the Yggdrasil enough to write this review on time. The Yggdrasil is a musically addictive drug without the expense and potential repercussions. When something is this enjoyable and the consequences of continuing its use aren't dire, the result is a foregone conclusion. More listening. The Yggdrasil has a rare ability to reproduce acoustic music on a level with some of the best DACs I've heard. 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. Although there are differences between the two Schiit models (Yggdrasil and Gungnir Multibit), there is certainly no ocean of quality between them. In fact, the slightly warmer and rounder character of the Gungnir Multibit (review can be found here) may even be more appreciated by some in the context of recreational listening. Both are very natural sounding though, and lack the digital glare that often trouble DACs aiming for an ultra-resolving sound.
