Now that Roon release 1.3 build 247 is out and Schiit’s Get 5 USB input is now working with Roon, I can now tell a significant sound improvement between a direct USB connection to the Schiit Yggdrasil DAC from my Mac Mini and using the new Schiit Eitr. The Schiit Eitr is a USB to Coax SPIDF converter. When using the Eitr instead of the direct connect the the Mac Mini, the music opens up and has a much clearer sound at least to my ears. I highly recommend using the Eitr if your DAC has a Coax SPDIF input.
Here the recent Roon update had no positive effect on the Eitr.
It shows the same behaviour as before the update.
My unit gets exchanged and I take it from there.
Have you gotten your replacement Eitr? Does it solve your issues?
The Eitr is on its way. Will be with me soon.
I also sent them the Yggy for an upgrade.
I just got my replacement Eitr and hooked it up to my microRendu and my Yggdrasil. Yippie! I can now play any sample rates through my microRendu and it sounds great!
