I'm an idiot.

 

No, if you use the preamp out, you will merge the amps sound signatures.

Wait, isn't that the entire point of a preamp out? To push out a signal previous to the amp?

You can check this with your Lyr, connect your E09k to the preamp output of the Lyr and enjoy the beautiful tubey sound.

I have a vahalla with AKG 701 for home,my music source is spotify on a galaxy S4 cellphone connected with Kimber silver streak cables.When I'm lifting,running and biking same source w/fiio 18 and grado 80's.Just got some Grado 225i to try out,been a Grado dealer since 1979. Been burning in for 4 days with XLO burn-in disc will compare to the AKG 701 soon.I really like the AKG's. Been a Kimber Kable dealer since 1982,was going to send AKG's to Kimber to have wired with silver streak if they would.Any body have any idea how this would sound in  comparison to Moon Black Dragon?

What's the point of the preamp out then?

I have had the asgard2 and now the Lyr with the he500 the lyr has more power never feels strained a sweeter sound both are good though
I listen to jazz manly lyr works better for that
post #3983 of 6138

The Lyr has more juice for the HE-500 than the Asgard 2 for sure.

Put in my order for the Bifrost Uber with USB this morning. I'm guessing I'm not going to see too much of an improvement over the Modi I'm currently using with the Lyr, but I'm getting tired of see that tiny DAC sit on the edge of the Lyr.

Just how good is the uber upgrade for the bifrost? I'm just running tge standard at the moment...but I am curious...

I guess I'll never know if the Uber upgrade was worth it unless I decide to pull it for some reason (highly doubtful). I just figured if I'm ordering new, might as well throw all the bells and whistles on it now since it'd be highly likely I'd pick them up in the future.

Any additional device will "damage" the musical signal somewhat. A switch or even an RCA "Y" will leave its signature as well. The question is how audible (if at all) will each method be.

Ok, so this goes back to my original question then. Is there a sexier way to switch between a Lyr and Asgard when connecting them to a Bifrost besides changing wired connections or some plasticy RCA switch? A triple-stack if you wish.

I've only had the Uber and I'm loving it.  Strictly using USB only with it.  I disconnected my cd players from it to keep my stack nice and neat.

Hehe, bite the bullet, spend the extra 200 and grab a Gungnir (Uberfrost is 500+ already) it has 2 SE outputs so you can feed lyr and asgard at the same time. Also it's balanced if you ever wanna go that route.
