Not so true about these "audiophile the moah-power the better" brands like Schiit etc. Have you read something on how much power is really needed and what to expect with overpowering your headphones?
After reading about Schiit amps damaging headphones, I thought they managed to fix it... However, with today's feedback from Dgiant, my interest in Schiit products is equal zero.
Wow. The Lyr does not put out 6W at all times. Furthermore, that was a blanket statement. Try the HE-6 out sometime.
So what you're getting at is, well, er, all Schiit products are overkill for all headphones...
Frankly, you don't know what you're talking about. And that is the problem here.
You can have 0 interest in Schiit products, however keep quiet with your blanket statements and ignorant knowledge of their products and design.
Once again, turn-off transients are normal. And once again, for those who do not know. It is not proper headphone101 to turn your amps on or turn them off with headphones plugged in with the Schiit Lyr.
