Thumbs up Yggdrasil upgrade to Analog 2--JUST DO IT!

Having loved my Yggy for a couple of years or so, I was a bit hesitant to jump on the Analog 2--why upgrade something that's so awesome to begin with? But I was in an expansive mood last April(!), so I got in line. My number came up in September and after 3 irritating weeks of a much lesser DAC in my rig, she arrived home this afternoon.

WOW! I am blown away. From the very first notes it's clear that the bass and transients pack more punch. Noise floor has dropped significantly, and I didn't think that was possible from where we started. Virtually everything is better articulated, with better separation, and thus the soundstage has also improved. All of this is done with no apparent loss of the musicality or warmth that Yggy fans love.

Frankly, I'm stunned. I was a bit worried that with no side by side comparison I wouldn't be sure the improvement was worth the $600 and 3 weeks apart. But it's taken my system to a whole new level. This is the best $600 I've spent in ages.

If you have a first generation Yggy, upgrade NOW!
