    If you used SBAF as a sample size (not necessarily representative of anything, though), more people stayed with A2 than switched to LIM. Still yeah, A2 cards alone aren’t easy to come by, but you can pretty commonly still find a whole A2 Yggdrasil floating around for under 1800 or so. Haven’t checked HifiShark much since A2 went kaput with Schiit themselves, though, could be harder now. I also think, given that LIM is now a few years old now, you would have seen more A2 cards on the used market around the time of its introduction than right now.

    So, I'm also just realizing that literally nobody has dropped MiB impressions.
    That said I'm pretty sure with my listening habits and amp that a2 OG is the one i'll keep craving.

    But by all accounts the 11001B is better than the 11001A. Aka MiB > MiL

    Exactly correct- i can only find used full units and they do indeed run about $1700+.

    FWIW I don’t see many cards at all - LIM, A2, or otherwise - on the market all that often. Full Yggdrasil units are much more common. It’s true A2 is the rarest, but these A1 cards I have also were hard to come by.

    For MIB impressions, there’s another thread on here that is finally getting more impressions now that you can buy cards for self-install.

    What he means @oceanrace , is we don't usually spoon feed here. All your questions are essentially already answered in these Yggdrasil threads, though you will have to triangulate to your own experience & knowns

    Yeah I get it. I used to frequent a site called Competiton Diesel when I was deep into building my cummins and re-doing the whole truck; if someone came on there asking stupid questions or that which had already been covered in depth, they were absolutely brutalized. So I get it. Bottom line is I need to take the great information here and just buy the products and hear with my own ears. I remember agonizing over sizing the turbos in my compound setup and finally I settled on what worked absolutely awesome for my intended use of the truck. Same with this deal.

    I'll put it like this- Yggdrasil is God-tier, just find your flavor.

    We try to keep the signal to noise ratio high here. Just a friendly FYI

    You can try a little google-fu for the right thread

    You might want to start here https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...b-was-jason-marv-pyrate-edition-11001b.13730/

    a quick comparo is in the middle with a graph https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...ason-marv-pyrate-edition-11001b.13730/page-10

    This kinda explains how the MIB is “Better” than Less. Not that the LIM is bad, but that it’s not really More. Sorta.

    And THAT explains why this thread died.
    These are super interesting posts. I consider this thread dead now, too.
