DAC Comparison

FiiO K5PRO vs Schiit Yggdrasil

FiiO K5PRO

The K5PRO is a compact, desktop DAC/headphone amp combo by FiiO. It features the leading AK4493 DAC chip with a wide variety of inputs and outputs to create a great value proposition.

$149.99 MSRP

Schiit Yggdrasil

Forget everything you know about DACs. Yggdrasil's unique True Multibit architecture delivers 21 bits of resolution with no approximations or guessing. True Multibit eschews delta-sigma D/As and their embedded digital filters, combining medical-grade multibit D/A converters with a unique time- and frequency-domain optimized digital filter that preserves the original samples.

In that regard, and in the context of a budget product that is designed reasonably well, I am going to recommend the Fiio K5 Pro.
