I have my Lyr and just a quick question. I bought to pair with my HE500 and notice a hum starting at approx. 2:00 on the volume pot. It is dead quiet to that point and even at it's loudest it's not bad at all. This is without sources powered on. I was just wondering if this was normal or represents the ground loop issue and whether I should bother trying to figure it out.
The sound improvement with the added power is wonderful. I was using the MAD Ear+ HD which is like audio gold with my RS1i but didn't have the raw power recommended for orthos. Considering my budget I feel I'm sitting on a great setup.
