For Sale:
SOLD: Schiit Audio Lyr Headphone Amplifier

Will Ship To: CONUS

For sale is a Schiit Audio Lyr headphone amplifier.  This is a hybrid amplifier, utilizing a pair of tubes at the input stage.  It can put 6 watts into 32 ohms, and can drive most headphones, including the power-hungry HiFiMan HE-6 (my dynamic headphone of choice).  The amplifier came stock with a pair of JJ ECC88 tubes, but it can use 6DJ8, 6922, 7308, ECC88, E88CC, E188CC, CV2492, CV2493, PCC88, 7DJ8, 6N1P, 6BZ7 and 6BQ7 tubes.  For more information, please see the following link (


I am the original owner of this amplifier, having purchased it directly from Schiit in March of 2011, shortly after it was released to market.  The serial number is 000288.  The unit is configured for US 115v.  It has approximately 200 hours of use.


The amplifier has been treated well, and has been covered with a cloth to prevent dust accumulation when not in use.  The item is in excellent condition, with no visible scratches, paint loss or fading.  The small adhesive rubber feet that were included upon receipt have been affixed to the bottom of the amplifier.  Though the photographs show what appear to be small nicks and scratches all over the surface of the amplifier, I can assure you that these do not exist.  I live in a pet-free, child-free and smoke-free environment.


My reason for sale is that I am upgrading to a powerful integrated speaker amplifier for my HE-6, so I’ll no longer need the Lyr.  I would like to see it go to a good home where it will get some use.


The amplifier will be sold in the original packaging (cardboard box, foam inserts), complete with all accessories it came with, as seen in the photographs.  Accessories included are the instruction manual, stock JJ ECC88 tubes (in box with foam), Monoprice RCA cable, stock power cord and a 1/8” to 1/4” TRS adapter.


I am asking for $SOLD, inclusive of shipping.  I would appreciate if the buyer could cover the 3% PayPal fee.  This price is firm.


Also for sale is a pair of Amperex USA 6922 Orange P.Q. tubes.  I purchased them from a fellow Head-Fier in April of 2011.  They’re very high-quality tubes that are rather rare and sound wonderful, and I’m willing to let them go for $x.  If you’re willing to buy both the amplifier and the tubes, I’ll sell both together for $x (a $x discount).  I’m firm on the pricing of these tubes as well, as they’re already a steal at the quoted price.


The item(s) will be shipped via Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation.  The item(s) will be carefully packaged, and can be shipped the next business day after payment is received.  For now, I would like to keep this within CONUS, though this is subject to change based on the level of interest.


Please feel free to PM me with any questions you may have.


Thank you for your time and consideration.
