Default Yggdrasil DAC vs Lumin T2 dac

Hello

Have anyone done a compare between the dac in a lumin t2 to Yggdrasil? I have a lumin t2 today and wonder if i would gain anyting to add a Yggdrasil DAC? I need a usb and optic inputs for my pc and tv.

And do Yggdrasil DAC match well with Mcintosh gear?

I can vouch for the Yggdrasil matching well with McIntosh. I have three ESS Sabre DAC’s using various versions of the 90x8 family - a Benchmark DAC 1, a Benchmark DAC 3 HGC, and a Topping D50. They all have a ‘family’ sound and I prefer the Yggdrasil over all of them.
