I guess. There is a little black screw that's supposed to hold the knob in place and it's deep inside a crevice. I have no clue on how I'm supposed to tighten it. I'm contemplating whether or not I should just use some JB Weld and just put it in it's place. But first I'm going to have to see if that would void my warranty. I really would rather not have to send it in for repair.

A tiny allen wrench perhaps?

Don't even consider messing it up.  Call Jason and tell him what happened.  He'll know what size hex key or screwdriver fits so you can simply tighten it up again.

 

Edit:  It seems to be a 1.3mm hex key if it's the same as used on the Asgard.

My nightstand rig.

Grokit, have you tried the K1000 with the Lyr yet? Has anyone other than Jason played around with the Lyr and the K1000? I might have missed something perhaps.

What would be a good usb dac for the lyr? I was thinking the music streamer II+ to use with my macbook, iMac. I don't need a dac for any other components, i just use either my ipod touch or one of my macs for listening.

If you have an Imac and a Macbook, you should get a good DAC with good Optical in, as the Mac computers have optical out. Optical is generally considered to be better sounding than USB. 

 

BTW, nice amp, Jason! The reviews look really good. The more clean power the better, IMO and apparently in yours as well. I can't wait to hear it with the HE-6, LCD-2, and other demanding cans.

By using a mini toslink adapter? How would that be good quality if it goes into the headphone jack? And what do you think is a good dac then just for computer use I don't really want to spend more on anything I really won't be using. Thanks for your help. Can anyone else offer an opinion?
