@darknightdk What WIlson speakers are you using? I'm not a Wilson owner but, maybe someday. Has yourself or anyone here compared this Yggy Dac against a Meitner MA-1?

I have the Sashas. I’ve not heard the MA1 so I can’t comment on that. I would urge you to find a way to audition a conditioned yiggy.
A word of advice, if you are auditioning the yiggy, it has to be ’burned in’. Fresh out of the box, the yiggy will take at least 3 weeks for it to perform at it’s best and you will notice changes and refinements in its sound signature over this duration. This is recommended before any serious evaluation.
Even burned in, the yiggy must be left on continuously to sound it’s best. With a 5 year warranty, this should not be an issue.
@darknightdk Thanks. Yes I've also read about the Yggy's break in time and such. It's very re assuring to know that someone with really high end speakers as yourself is speaking and vouching for a DAC with a much lower MSRP then what some but certainly not all of Wilson owners would use as their DAC. Again it's all personal taste and you have some real nice speakers but, you didn't feel the need to have a 10k plus DAC in your system to pair with your Sashas. Which I think speaks very highly of the Schiit DAC. I'm really looking forwarding to acquiring this DAC soon.
In audio, the MSRP of a product should not be a correlation to its performance. More often than not, the high markups paid relate to the exterior cosmetics of the product, marketing costs and distributor fees rather than the interior circuitry.
Schiit sells direct to consumers, relies heavily on word of mouth for marketing and places value on the it's internal circuitry and proprietary design so ultimately the consumer wins.
If one can look beyond the yiggy's price point, its no frills exterior casing and the fact it's called 'schiit', you will discover a truly high end product and one of audio's tremendous bargain.
