Ive been looking into desktop speakers (active) and was looking into using the Lyr as a preamp. If anyone was wondering, the Lyr does indeed feed power through the tubes in its preamp function. Just an FYI, I thought it was interesting. Really a great piece of equipment the Lyr is.
Yeah, since I got my Lyr and Bifrost have been checking out other options besides my computer for input, and output to my house system. Brought out an older Denon DCD-1015 CD player, output via digital spdif coax to the Bifrost/Lyr to play CD's, It sounds great, certainly as good as my EAC rips on my computer via USB to the Bifrost. My house system is all balanced out of my B&K preamp, DBX DriveRack Processor to various amps, speakers, and subs, so this is more problematic. I guess I could run a digital spdif out of my Sony NC555ES player/ Bifrost/Lyr/ pre-outs to my B&K Pre. Not sure if this will give me "tube" goodness. Or I could forget my subs and run SE. RB2013 if you have any comments please chime in. Would love to get some "tube" sound into my house system. Sorry, slightly off topic, tubes.
