Mmmm I am indeed hoping for an upgrade to Gungnir sometime. Bifrost had the Uber upgrade. So I hope it'll be Gungnir's time soon. :biggrin:

Likely not a problem to get it now if the DAC fits your needs/budget. The upgrade will likely be something you could order later to add/install (like with the Uber for Bifrost). There is good reason they tout Bifrost and Gungnir as upgradeable and "futureproof" DACs.

+1. I would love to see a tube amp for balanced headphones. I probably would buy that instead of the Rag since I've no use for speakers.

I believe Jason went on the record saying he'd never do that.

Wouldn't that be Mike's domain? wink.gif

But yeah, I don't really see a reason to do a tube DAC. I was just putting it out there as an option of what can be done with Schiit's lineup of DACs.

If most of your post is about shipping time and costs, we're going to think that is what you were most concerned with. If it was about the amp, the post would have been shorter and to the point. "I ordered a Lyr, it had a problem. I sent it in for repair, it still had the problem. They sent me a tube, still had the problem. I got a refund." Something to that affect. This is quite a different tone than your post, and if the original post had been on topic, nobody would have had a problem with it. No company is perfect in that it never makes a bad product. You were simply the 'lucky' one who got the dud, and the company made good on the refund. All the extra shipping time and cost is an unfortunate consequence of lack of access.

 

You're right, my initial feedback might have been a bit too much about the shipping costs instead of the amp itself. I hope you now understnd that my real problem was not recieving a fully working unit, not the costs associeted with that (although those were obviously an isse as well, nobody feels good about wastin 330$ and getting nothing in return).

But that's not how it went in my case, I never got the chance to review a fully working product.

I mostly listened to the Q701 + Lyr combo and it was superb. The already big soundstage expanded, separation was better and it overall just sounded great in every regard. Works from Quincy Jones and Keith Jarett's Koln concert really shinned for me. The He-400 didn't benefit that much from the amplification, it was better - more lively, with a bit more bass, but overall I'm not nearly as satisifeid with these headphones as I wanted to be.

it sounds like Schiit provided support the best to their ability. Even more, sounds like dude is just bitching

to get Schiit in public and put up the refund, which is totally stupid. Living in a place where you constantly

deal with import tax, etc, you should have known better and taken the proper steps to insure you got your 'full' refund.

 

Oh come on. I have owned an amp before, I still do... I can't believe how my problems could be anything but the amp. And I'm most definetelly not bitching to get their attention. This matter was ended more than 2 months ago, if I wanted anything more I would've posted back then. Instead, I decided to wait and post honest feedback of how things went. I don't understand how some of you are so defensive about this.

Most likely Schiit took care of him and he deleted it.

 

I wish I could have found out why my Asgard 2 sounded so "off". Gave up trying. Maybe it's not apartment compatible. Tons of wireless crap in the area.

 

Sometime I will try a Lyr through a distributor with no restocking fees. There is one just an hour away.

 

The review is still there.

Thanks for letting me know, but I bought the Lyr last December. This website went live late January. I checked all my options and buying directly from Schiit was the only one, other distributers said they can't sell EU plug Lyr.


Does anybody here have a working Lry with an EU plug, or any other Schiit product with an EU plug?

 

Thank you to Schiit who refunded my shipping costs today!

Hey guys I plan on ordering me a Valhalla and an Uber Bifrost in the next week or so and I was wondering where do you guys get the awesome looking little feet that elevates it. I've seen some silver and some more of a gunmetal color but they all look awesome. Thank you for your help.

Good question.  My marbles and silly putty gunk looked cool until the Valhalla got hot...

Most tube headphone amps seem to suffer from a lack of low bass, according to some reviews I've read. Do Schiit amps have this issue, particularly the Lyr?

Although it depends on the tubes, in general, no.

I have the Alpha Dogs with the Lyr on stock tubes, AD is considered quite flat but with the Lyr I can hear plenty of sub bass. Though I have heard with some other tubes the bass gets even better.

Have to say PartsExpress is really good.

 

I still remember many many years ago I got my first t-amp from them, and their customer service was impressive. Highly recommended without hesitation!
