I'll also be out of the country from March 29-April 11, with spotty availability. Expect that I'll be responding to email, but probably not with the alacrity you've seen in the past. In the meantime, Mike and his capable partner Fred will be taking over shipping and answering pressing technical questions or issues--fred@schiit.com.

After getting totally addicted to this website and reading different posts every night for the last month and a half, I have finally made a decision and it is the LYR.  Now for my second decision lcd2-he6 or he5le?

All of the above. evil_smiley.gif

 

Seriously though, what's your favorite headphone (that you listen to regularly) now, and why?

Where are you located? The easy way to help that decision along is to attend a meet near you. Chances are, with the popularity of those 3 choices, you'll be able to hear them all in one place.

Also, Moffat was at Angstrom where he designed the first Home Theater processor with DTS Audio support.  He definitely knows his digital processing.

Good news indeed for those of us who ordered a Lyr before March 5th!  (My order went in on 2/19 - after the Burlingame meet.)

After being a dj for ten years the world of hifi is a welcome change. From what I have demoed so far I like the denon d 7000 and grado rs1i's. I didnt really care for the sen hd 650's however when i tested them it was hooked up to a peachtree and IMO not properly amplified.

Thats a bummer, its too bad you missed the big Toronto meet earlier this month. But you could talk to some of the folks that go to your local meets and see if you can have a mini meet. It looks like you guys attract a lot of headfiers and have pretty big meets. Seattle had one on March 5th the day before yours and you guys had a bigger list.

You guys are lucky. I live in New Orleans, where there seems to be nothing. the last Head-Fi reference to a meet hear was in 2006. I can see live music whenever I want, so I suppose that is some consolation.

Got the knob fixed!! Whew, thank goodness.

Behind the Lyr you can clearly see the old crappy amp that was previously powering my HE6... What an upgrade!!!

I'm in nowheresville here man, trade places with you any day, enjoy!

Yeah, its not so bad here. I can also understand why we have no meets here, its on the small side of big cities and doesn't have a huge audiophile community. I do however wish the chose to have a National/International meet here. Most of the people who attend those I assume are from out of town, and who would not love to jump at the opportunity to come down to New Orleans for a few days. It seems like the perfect Music lovers destination. That's just my thought anyway.

 

On the topic of this thread, I love my Lyr. It is my first headphone amp so I can not really compare it to anything for you, but it does seem to be awesome.

Considering I'm planning to make it my final amp, I'd say this has to be the best starting point, EVER. XD
