Schiit lyr for D7ks with an impedance adapter?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am getting D7ks and LCD2s later this year and have been looking at amps. The lyr is said to be amazing with the LCD2s,but won't work with the D7ks because of the power of the lyr. Can that be safely (not sacrificing sound quality) changed with an impedance adapter?

Thanks in advance.

Lyr is fine with the D7k as long as you watch the volume.

So basically i can use it but just turn the volume down?

And if you don't mind a high noise floor.

I don't know what that means... Thanks for making me feel like a noob.

It just means most likely there is going to be a lot of noise (static, humming, etc.)

Ok,would an impedance adapter fix that? If so,i'm not much on building things,so where can i get one that will work?

I have a Lyr with a D7k. There is a noise a hum or something similar. It does not bother me much but I can see how it might as it does bother me with certain tracks. I like the bass response with the Lyr.

Lyr output impedance is quite low already. Less than 1 ohm I think. Impedance wise should be no problem with denons. Its the high gain and power of Lyr that is problematic with denons. What you are looking for may be some kind of signal attenuator between source and amp.

I have denons and Lyr as well. But I usually use denons with asgard.
