Hey Jay, what're your recent thoughts of the Lyr with your Grados?  I finally ordered my Oppo Blu-ray, but opted for the 103.  So I'm thinking hard about which Schiit amp to get.

I stumbled onto this guy on eBay just now. In case anyone needs a classier way to store/carry their Grados:

Not bad!

to me, the lyr is better than the vali for the grado's, because of the gain or whatever, you have more control over the volume,

and with the microphonic nature of the vali, less noise.

the greatest attribute of the lyr, to me, its flexibility, its got 6 watts, so its got power, its quiet enough for grado's.

example, its better with the rs1i, than the little dot 1+ is with the lcd2.2

AND its got the pre-out for my psb's

the a2 is great if you prefer solid state and its got a gain switch, i've had it, i haven't heard the vahalla, i want to hear the mjolnir !!

i MAY get one , run it out of the balanced outs of my wadia, and run the lyr, or another tube amp, with pre outs from the single ended

outputs, thats kinda the picture i've got in my head

I had a friend 3D print me a cup for my SR-60s. Does anybody have a model or drawing of cup dimensions? I'm thinking like RS1i style. This is a test run and will be of better quality later.

Thats pretty cool looking, i don't know which way you guys started it but maybe start it like it is sitting now might yield a better looking top..meh still looks cool regardless. RS1 is only longer so just stretch it out some more, also Trying making either a closed or bushmills x grado cups.

I can get 2 cups printed for about $1.50. So if I can get measurements for the full enclosure I'll liberate some drivers! I'm down for experimenting but I need dimensions for the printer.

Good for you, I like them very much, I use them exclusively with my WA6/Meridian, I'm sure you will like them.

In just a few songs I've already determined I like them better than the Bushmills and probably my beloved 325's as well.

yup. Grados line-up (SR to RS) definitely gets better as you move up the chain. Whether or not the change in sound is worth the price is up to each individual but for me I would spend as much as I could afford. Buying used always helps too smily_headphones1.gif
