Been running the EVO 100 Tube Dac for a couple hours now. Easy to setup. My 1100 Sq Ft Game Room has a concrete floor, Rock Walls, Rock columns ceiling to floor, knotty Alder Wood Ceilings and big Cedar Beams running the entire length and width of the ceiling. Needless to say the acoustics are not very good. That aside the first thing I noticed right out of the box is how deep the base sounds. Vocals are amazing. The big test for me has always been piano music. On many Dacs I've heard over the years high notes tend to expose digital glare. EVO 100 passed with flying colors. Right now I'm listening to subscription internet radio stations via Sonos. Radio Tunes and Calm Radio. I plan add a Lumin U1 mini streamer to the mix.

If you like a Warm Lush Anologue sound the Evo 100 will provide it. It's a great looking Dac and goes well with the C2200 and MC275 v6.


I'm not very good at posting pics, but I'll try later tonight.

I think there's going to be a major USB upgrade at some in the reasonably near future, as well.
Unison USB is out for Bifrost 2, and Schiit is planning to make it available for Gungnir and Yggdrasil in January 2020 (coinciding with the end-of-life for Windows 7).

Thanks, Zonto. I for one will be looking forward to the Unison upgrade for Gumby.

JBT, we just returned from vaction and what do I see... you pulled the trigger. Congrats, hope you enjoy it. Any plans to put into your main system and some A-B comparisons? BTW, I also have MC275 MkVI but mine is paired with ARC LS-27 pre & Vandersteen Treos. I for one would love to hear your review with the Evo in your main system.

JWH, a shootout in my main system isn't in the cards. I'd have to move too much stuff and I didn't setup the system. When I bought the 601s, C1100, D1100 and MCT450 my dealer had his guys hook everything up. I've since added an Aurender and Oppo 205. So I have lots of stuff hooked up to the D1100.

The EVO 100 is the first DAC I've bought without listening to it in my house first. After 2 weeks with it I can say it is great sounding DAC that is a match made in heaven with the MC275 and C2200.

The D1100 is a fantastic DAC. My Direct TV channels sound great. My SACD and Redbook CDs have never sounded so good. Aurender streamer is amazing. The D1100 now sells for 7500.00. The EVO 2999.00. For the money the EVO is in the same class as the D1100

I agree with what Robert Levi said in Positive Feedback

The PrimaLuna EVO 100 Tube DAC, a blockbuster component and musical triumph, leapfrogs dozens of DACs to virtually achieve state-of-the-art definition at a more than reasonable cost. Built as an heirloom product, this tubed beauty will bring you a lifetime of enjoyment from all the digital sources I can imagine.


It will be the last DAC for my game room system. I've temporarily moved my bedroom Lumin U1 mini streamer to the game room and I just don't see digital music getting much better.

I think you made the right choice! I have the same DAC which replaced the Musical Paradise one mentioned earlier in this thread. Although I've not had the pleasure of hearing the Schitt Yggy, I'm in love with the PL.

JBT, I understand. Glad you're enjoying the new PL.
