LCD-2 + (Schitt Lyr vs. Headroom Balanced) - Page 7

post #91 of 95

My LCD-2 and Lyr sound very good together. No hum at all. My dac is battery powered so there is no ground situation there with the Lyr.

This is a good idea - will actually try it at my neighbor's house right next door, a suburb clone.  Should have thought of this.

 

I don't remember if I mentioned that Jason couldn't detect a hum (with the LCD-2) when I sent my original unit back to Schitt.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum, but I wanted to comment on the Lyr.

 

After reading the limited number of reviews and comments on the web about the Lyr, I began communicating with Jason Stoddard of Lyr.  I was a little worried that I was being a bit of a pain with all my questions, but he was very patient, helpful and informative. I liked what I heard, so I ordered a Lyr on June 1st, and it arrived promptly last week. 

 

It was expertly packaged, and I was immediately impressed with the no-nonsense solid build quality. Really nice volume knob, and I was happy to see it had a detachable IEC power inlet. It looked like it should be lot more expensive than it was.

 

I knew it would take lots of burn-in time, but of course, I couldn't wait to start listening. I was pleased with the initial listen, but after 48 hours of burn-in I'm thrilled. I'm still burning it in, and based on past burn-in experience, I'm guessing it hasn't reached it's full potential yet.

 

As far as hum or noise is concerned - this Lyr is absolutely dead quiet - even when I turn the volume to max, and there is absolutely no noise from the volume control. I am using a high quality power cord running from an isolation transformer, so this may have some effect.

 

I plan to write a review of my experiences in the future, but for now, I'll be too absorbed in my music in a way I've never heard it before.    

 

PS: My phones are Senn HD 800.
