Lots of Yggy fans on here but I hope you won't mind a contrary opinion. I heard the Yggy a couple of times and in my own system. Lots of detail and quite a 'hifi' sound but I always went back to vinyl as my preferred source (accepting the massive cost difference between my digital and vinyl front end). I've recently bought a Border Patrol SE DAC and maybe its my natural preference for a non oversampling DAC, but I find the BP sounds more lifelike and natural (to my ears and in my system - YMMV). All goes to show that its not easy choosing a DAC, and that there are very few absolutes in terms of one DAC being utterly better than another - at a certain level in the market its more about subtle differences than large gaping improvement. The Yggy is still a very good DAC and good value as far as I'm concerned.
