  1. I like my Powerbeats Pros because they have those hooks that keep them securely on your ears. The ones you have to cram into your ear canal are too uncomfortable for me and anyway they fall out.
  2. Stuff I buy from Qobuz sounds just as good as my CD rips, to me anyway.
  3. Until recently when I swapped it out for a different reason, I always left my Yggy turned on and I never heard a hum. Maybe my system isn't as good as yours. Interesting comparative review anyway.
  4. Just want to thank everyone for their suggestions. I went with the Matrix X-Sabre MQA Pro DAC. I have no interest in MQA, but this DAC sounds great. I haven't had time to do an ABX test, and I may never do one, because I could never get all the variables (volume matching, cables, having someone else do the swapping, etc.) done properly. But my initial impressions are that the Matrix, to me at least, has a cleaner, sharper, brighter sound than the Yggdrasil.
  5. Thanks Markus, Ari and I tried that but it didn't help.
  6. I thought about that, but UPS charged me around sixty bucks for shipping and insurance to send the Yggdrasil to Schiit, then Schiit charged me $240 for the upgrade and shipping back. When I include the taxi fare to lug the thing to the UPS office I've already sunk over $300, and to get it downgraded I'd probably end up spending another hundred. Just thinking about it my blood pressure is going up.
  7. Hi All, I wasn't sure if I should put this here or in the DAC forum. I have an Aurender N100C. I used it with an Yggdrasil with Analog 2 for a year or two and was happy with the combination. Then I added the Unison USB upgrade. Big mistake. When using the Yggy’s USB in port my stereo started emitting the occasional loud buzzing noise when I hit the fast forward button to advance from one track to the next. Aurender went out of their way to try to fix that issue, and they more or less did, but since then more trouble has popped up. Now, when I switch directly from internet radio to

  9. My issue in post #118 is solved, the Yggdrasil and Aurender N100C are playing together nicely! No more buzz when fast forwarding to the next track. Thanks so much to Ari and the rest of the Aurender team, and of course to Chris!
  10. And listen to the annoying neighborhood wino say the same thing over and over. "I worked in that mill for thirty years, and they lay me off? Thirty years I tell you. Thirty years."
  11. Last time I looked in here was thirty or forty pages ago. I can't believe this farce is still ongoing. Did he ever post one single photograph? I'm surprised you guys haven't figured out: he has no stereo; there is no friend with a "sorted" "rig" "up the road." He just wants attention. He wants you to believe that he's outwitted all those hifi manufacturers and you nouveau riches who've bought your outrageously expensive shiny toys. His non-existent ten dollar transistor radio beats them all, because he's clever enough to pay attention to all the little things until his
  12. The guy is desperate to convince someone - anyone - that he gets the best music from his "rig" using only his intelligence and keen insight. He's outwitted all those audiophile recording labels, and high end component manufacturers, and silly more-money-than-sense audiophiles, and it was "trivially easy!" He's the Jack Aubrey of audiophiledom. He has nothing to say, but he needs an audience. You guys are saints for indulging him.
  13. If you click the link there's a bunch more, almost all just as horrible as the ones Sphinx posted.
  14. The Boy George one isn't terrible, but the rest of them...
