I dang near bought a Lyr this week. I just decided it might not be the best choice with the Oppos. If I only had the alphas, I probably would have gone for the Lyr.

I see, that makes sense. Sounds like you made the right call for your setup.

While I have not heard your DAC, the A2 is quite good with the HD650s.
