If not, well, never mind... :-)
Yes suede acoustic treatment. The paper towels work. I needed to fill the cabinet with something as I cannot move it. They do help as I have a very bright room and I will add more and probably cover the front with cloth so I am not staring at paper towels but they do work. I need to ad a rug and do whatever else I can. I am pretty much at a near field listening position. Also the rear wave of the Maggies on both sides goes into a hallway so I am not bombarded with that. :)
...and the paper towels fit perfectly in that cavernous space. That's a frugal tweak, for sure. Just guard them when the unrest rears its ugly head again. They could be worth their weight in gold!
I'm leaning toward selecting the Yggy based on the Analog 2 boards. From everything I've read it seems that Class A JFET output would be a significant contributor to the sound I seek.
What do you think? I really appreciate your input regarding the Gungnir Multibit! It would be my choice if not for the improvements of the Analog 2 boards on the Yggy. (From my reading perceptions).
I also have a bright, reflective room. A marble fireplace between the speakers (ugh!).
Call Schiit. I struggled over that one. I would have to go back thru my photos of "The Show" in Newport, CA when I hear what I think was the Yggy.
My system is downsized from Levinson stuff and what would be the equivalent of JM Lab or Wilson speakers.
I read that one of the two Schiit guys prefer the Multi-Bit to the Yggy. That was what made my decision.
This multi-bit is awesome. So natural. I am running Audirvana out of a Mac. With upsampling ant feel's so natural. Space, decay, and dynamics.
Just upgraded power cables and wish I had gotten one for the DAC. Ordering now.
Considering my past system I could;dn't be happier with the direction I have gone. Schiit makes some great stuff.
