The Yggy GS stands for, "garage sale." All the info you need is on their website.

Basically it goes like this; a lot of people upgraded their generation 1 to generation 2. As a result, a lot of generation 1 boards are stacking up in the Schiit warehouse. They take the old board, stuff in a brand new case along with everything else and sell it. Cheap. Like $1599 cheap.

If you don't need bleeding edge and would be satisfied with damn fine, it's a good deal.

Interesting concept and revenue stream for Schiit. As long as they’re forthright with what the customer is getting, it seems like a win/win.

@Puma Cat : YES as confirmed by others including @Grover at Schiit this is new Yggy with Gen5 USB ect just older Analog 1 board
would appreciate yours or others opinion-seems like an offer almost 'too good to be true'
will pair this with new Rggy 2 (just an amp)
only listen to streaming HD/HiRes on TIDAL/Qobuz on their respective web/app pages plus via ROON and Audirvana A+3 with my 800 ripped CD's in Apple lossless(from WiFi connected late 2012 i7 16GB RAM Mac Mini with new 4TB samsung SSD HD)
will be listening with Sennheiser RS-195s and 598 HDs and with newly built for me Legacy Audio Studio HD monitors(any opinions on my choice of speakers ?) haven't been on this page since 2013!
thanks bobbmd

Agreed GS sounds like a good deal in terms of percentage discount on "damn fine". OTOH, I thought the money I spent upgrading my Yggy Analog 1 to Analog 2 was worth every penny and more. So I would still opt for their latest unless I was on a tight budget.
