I also enjoyed listening to the high-res classic rock and jazz that I have. The Lyr is great, a new level of dynamic, rich and fun for me.

It gets better as you get some hours on the tubes too.

I've used the Bifrost/Lyr combo with my Hifiman HE-500's for quite awhile now and they are the excelent match that everybody says they are.  Have a nice Ancient Audio Tech tube amp I used before and it just doesn't have enough juice.

 

Have used the Arkam iPhone dock as an input and get pretty good sound out of it, using that more since my Nuforce cd player won't eject any more.   Gotta get that fixed some day.

 

Looking for a smal footprint cd deck to put on my night stand next to the Bifrost/Lyr.......any ideas?

Expect a chapter a week until we reach the present day (about 35 weeks worth!)

 

All the best,

Might pick up a magni+modi in the coming months. But it would seem silly considering I only have sr60i's......

Why would it be silly? I am thinking the forwardness of the Grados might not match so well with the Magni, which can be quite bright. Maybe try the Vali instead, to kind of smooth the sound out with tubey goodness? Just an idea...

My SR-60s sound great with the Vali, definitely helps with the bass a bit.

+1  vali, had both the magni and have the vali, the magni was a little harsh with my grado's, the vali , golden !

Modi and Magni will be delivered today!!

So I can hook them up to my HE-400 as my office set-up.

 

Still thinking about adding a Vali to the stack, never owned a tube amplifier before, so the itch is there :atsmile:

 

I will post some pictures and my first impressions when they arrive.

They're here:

 

 

 

First impression right out of the box: WOW, what a great little stack of Schiit is this!

It sounds soooo much better than my Audioengine D1 I was using up till now. Combination with HE-400 works real well too, I think.

 

So I'm a happy camper!

Nice! Mine is similar, except I have the Magni sitting on a larger DAC and no speakers. Helps drown out those boring work conversations. ;)

Jay-do you still give the nod to LD1+ or do you think the Vali is comperable?

JUST grado's, i'd say LD, especially the rs1i, i like being able to tube roll

but, for me, a mostly grado, but liable to get anything other headphone at any time, i'd say vali, it drives the lcd2 about as good as the lyr really

the vali has got balls, and its top end i think is between the LD and magni, and closer to the magni
