Power Schiit Audio Lyr 2 High Tube Hybrid Desktop Headphone Amplifier
Lyr 2 is the next generation of one of the most popular high-power headphone amps, with added versatility and convenience. It’s a complete control center for your desktop system, with preamp outputs for powered desktop speakers, as well as a gain switch for use with virtually any headphone. Completely Redesigned for Flexibility We completely reworked Lyr 2 to make it an even higher-performing, more flexible amp. We added a gain switch so you can now use efficient headphones (and even many IEMs.) We've also cut the noise with a new regulated high-voltage supply and DC regulated heaters. A refined Dynamically Adaptive output stage transitions seamlessly from Class A to Class AB, for excellent overall efficiency. From Iems and Orthos to Active Monitors Lyr 2 offers two gain settings. The gain of 1 is good for most sensitive headphones, including efficient on-ear models and many IEMs, while the gain of 8 is ideal for inefficient orthodynamics and high-impedance headphones. In addition, the preamp outputs can easily be connected to powered speakers, for a complete desktop system. Roll Your Own Sound Like Lyr, Lyr 2 lets you "roll" many different tube types to your own preference. Use 6Bz7, 6Dj8, 6922, Ecc88, 2492, and many other tube types to get your perfect sound. Made in USA By “made in Usa;” we mean made in Usa. The vast majority of the total production cost of Lyr 2—chassis; boards, transformers, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US. Our board house is 20 minutes away from our office in Newhall. Our chassis guys are just over the hill in the Valley. 5-Year Warranty Lyr 2 is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labor for five years. That’s 5 years. Yes. Five. Which is up to 5X that of our competition, if you weren’t so hot at math. Note the marketing weasel-wording “up to.” One exception: the tubes. Those we cover for 3 months.
