New Schiit: Lyr 2


Recommended Posts

I upgraded to a Lyr 2 from my Asgard.


Enjoying some things, and not some others. Love the pre-amp out, it is the main reason I bought this. Will let it burn in a bit, and revisit some of my music. It seems to like to be let loose, with headphones on I am listening to rather loud Goo Goo Dolls Magnetic, Nirvana In Utero, LZ I, II, III, Dire Straits Love Over Gold, Tom Petty Damn The Torpedos. Paper Airplane never sounded better. Folk and acoustic works, awesome. Classical and Jazz piano, real nice.


Definitely more revealing, I will have to readjust the bar on what I consider a good recording now. Revisiting some of my favorites, and issues with the recording are more apparent (Moondance, some of Tea For the Tillerman, the "darker" sounding songs on The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, August and Everything After).


Time to take the headphones off, my ears are sore.



Roon Rock running on a Gen 7 i5, Akasa Plao X7 fanless case. Schiit Lyr 2, Schiit Bifrost upgraded with Uber Analog and USB Gen 2, Grado RS1s, ADAM A3x Nearfield Monitors.
