Man, the midrange stuff is probably what I should stick to money wise, but I certainly have enough time to save up for the statement stuff if I want to. So many choices to make; so much unknown for me. The Lyr is the first amp I've ever owned, and I've never had a nice DAC before.

 

I am waiting for the midrange and statement products with bated breath.

I ordered my Lyr on Friday then noticed it's on backorder again...although says it should be shipping this week. I sure hope mine does as well...patience may be a virtue but it sure isn't one I have

heck. i'll have to live without a good DAC for almost a whole year more???

Should be shipping now. I went ahead and ordered a Valhalla about a week ago, which was notified as being backordered until the end of January. Now they've updated and said from late Jan to early Feb. *sigh*

Yeah it shipped Tuesday but seems stuck enroute to Canada. Tracking hasn't updated in two days. I did pay for international express (3-5 days) so was hoping they'd be here today. I hate waiting lol

Not that it isn't OUTRAGEOUS in the first place! But hey I guess he could be selling DACs for $7500 bucks like Wavelength's Crimson!

 

Do people actually purchase stuff like that !!!!

 

I guess a SUCKER is born everyday eh!!!

post #75 of 335

wow wait a second here...

 

Are we talking about a headphone amp here or a power amp?

 

It's my understanding that very few headphone drivers are balanced. I thought for the most part it was simply a 4 conductor cable to eliminate common ground for crosstalk etc at the cable segment. Or even worse it's simply bi-wiring BS.

 

I can understand a headphone amp with balanced +4 dBu inputs but balanced outputs to the drivers?

 

I believe even the LCD-2 doesn't have balanced inputs into the driver. I think that's called "balanced drive" right?

 

Sorry for my headphone ignorance guys!
