Going to pull the trigger tomorrow on a Schiit Lyr I think, unless anyone can convince me of another amp in that price range that will pair well with these and future cans.

like the idea of being able to roll some tubes when i have the cash to play around with the sound signature.

Anyone have any suggestions for other amps, tube or SS, that I should consider?

Let's see what's happens when it has arrived. I can recommend you ALO International, but when budget is an issue forget balanced mode and connect single-ended and go for ALO National or stay with your D42. You can't get fully balanced setup with AK100mk2 anyway. Output of AK is single-ended so input to amp is also single-ended!


 




Thank you so much for your insights and suggestion. I really appreciate it.

I won't steer you from it. I've heard it, like it, almost bought it twice. If you want solid state, a used Burson Soloist SL or Soloist. I've had the SL, and frankly may end up with a Lyr or soloist. Depends on how the Asgard2 works out. Trying that next week.

Beofre I buy these, are there any known upgrades for the ADs happening anytime soon? Also Dan how do you like the Vali with the ADs?

@Reignfire: No thanks, you really make a good deal by buying Mrspeakers AlphaDog. Excellent price /quality ratio!!!

I think relatively soon after getting it I will invest in some new cheapish tubes ~$30-$50 price range, any good all purpose tubes you can suggest in that range?

My favorite tubes in the Lyr driving the AD are Gold Lions.
