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.
