Sorry to be scarce. We're getting ready to ship the last handful of pre-order Lyrs; pretty much everything has gone out to date. We're also ramping up for the next run, hopefully to deliver before the end of the month.
To answer a couple of questions.
First, electrostatics: I honestly have no idea. We've never tried it. Lyr doesn't have any electronic current-limiting, but the Dynamically Adaptive stage is designed to work optimally for typical headphone impedances. Sure, it will drive 8 ohms, but it is NOT a speaker amp. Speaker amps usually have some decoupling from heavy reactive loads, whereas Lyr doesn't need it for light headphone diaphragms. It also has self-resetting passive internal protection that will limit output at about 1A of current over long periods--so if you're going to try to drive speakers or 8 ohm transformers, you could potentially run into problems with back EMF and tripping the passive protection.
Second, payment options. Yeah, we can take PayPal, but it's a manual process, and it puts you outside our normal order tracking system. If you really, really want to use PayPal, let us know and we can send a request for payment.
