Thanks for that. Because im debating if I should just upgrade my entire chain or just the DAC. Also because rumors are going around that Schiit flagships coming around end of year and its ard october. Im worried im going to regret upgrading so soon :/ (or maybe I should wait until the flagship comes out and get a second hand gungnir if the flagship is over my budget. Hopefully 2nd hand prices drop when ppl rush to upgrade to the flagship hehe)
The LCD-2 is a lot of fun from the Lyr and you can tweak it to be more balanced with the right tubes. However the Lyr is nowhere as capable as the Mjolnir in terms of transparency, as refined in bass control and extension, or as accurate in imaging. If you're upgrading from the FiiO E7 in your profile the Gungnir will be an eyeopener. You just won't hear its best with the Lyr in the way.
