Hey all. I was deciding whether I would want to get the Schiit Audio Lyr, or the Woo Audio WA6. I heard the Lyr has a little more treble sparkle and is cheaper to roll tubes with, whereas the WA6 is darker and is more expensive to roll tubes on. My headphone taste is mostly comprised of AKG (Q701, K702 Annies, K240) and Sennheiser (HD380, HD600, etc) headphones, but I am considering orthodynamics in the future. My music tastes also tend to favor mid bass and mid range with sparkly treble, but no 8-10 kHz spikes.
Does the Lyr handle orthos better than the WA6?
And will the Lyr add any more sibilance or screechiness to my headphones and make them too bright?
