Nah, the Lyr is a weakling you need MOAAR power. very_evil_smiley.gif

 

Okay, maybe that's a little bit mean. (I'm half joking) The Lyr is in fact very Awesome, but it's so 2011. The Emotiva is the new FOTM and it's less than half the price of the Lyr, so even if it was only half as good, it's still a good bargain.

 

But yeah the Lyr is nice. Enjoy it my friend.beerchug.gif

I used to work as a International Lyr pusher. I probably made more postive comments about the Lyr than the Emotiva believe it or not. Back in 2011. I'm trying to get a job with Emotiva now. You're kind of late to the Lyr party, two years late to be precise. Plenty of nice things have already been said about the Lyr, by me and many MANY others.

 

Edit: And for the record, everything I say about the Lyr vs. Emotiva is true. If you care to find out. (Let them know it was me who closed the sale so they PayPal me the commission okay?)

What calendar are you using??? That must be one big ass month biggrin.gif. The Emotiva has been going on since last Christmas.

 

LOL I wonder how many customers Emotiva got because of that thread. Give it a month or two and you'll see Emotiva being a head-fi sponsor.

I think it's been going since last July. That's when I purchased the first one.

The Emotiva is $189 right now. The discount has me thinking about trying it. What is the cheapest way to get my HE-500 hooked up? Thanks

PS I hate when people ask simple questions that could easily be found with a search. It's been a long day with a death in the family and I don't have time to read this and the other thread.

Cheapest way?  HE500 -> TRS to 4 banana adapter (shared ground is fine with the Mini-X).

This is what I intend to try out too, but not with the mini-X.  I still have quite a few speaker amps and receivers to play around with.  Though, at $189, the mini-X is indeed cheap.

Well here on Head-Fi. FOTM can last a couple of years like the LCD-2. LOL

 

I believe when someone inquired Emotiva about using the mini-X to drive their HE-6, the e-mail response was that they would recommend the Schiit Lyr. very_evil_smiley.gif (Someone from Emotiva really needs to start thinking outside the box; how hard could it be to add a headphone out?)

When I first emailed them their response was something along the lines of "if you really need a lot of power for headphones, you should try schiit audio". I was like, you have no idea the kinds of headphones we're dealing with.

just following the title:

 

extremely dynamic bass push force, air dynamic presence--to the point it's too much for the eardrum

 

too heavy for long term sessions.

 

perceivably high detail and speed, but makes me wonder why I paid 700 for it--oh yeah, I probably need some 2k amp to feel justified, but wait, I don't have that kind of budget, nor will I buy into it until I try one

 

well, I don'tlive in a big city, so no meet ups, no audio stores with headphile gears.
