I am interesting in getting a Schiit Lyr, but its rather high THD bothers me. According to Schiit's own specifications, Lyr has THD less than 0.1%, which is considerably high compared to many other amps around the $500 range. Many of them have THD less than 0.01%, which is ten times less than Lyr's potential THD.
I heart that many people praised Lyr's lush and warm sound. While I like the lush sound, I wonder whether the lush and warm sound is caused by the potential high THD. In my experience, high THD will affect the transparency of the sound.
Please let me know if you experience noticeable THD from Lyr.
