Ok guys - so I got my LCD2s on Saturday. I'll buy the HE-500s at some point, and for amplification, I have decided to go with a solid state/hybrid rig for now, and go for a SET option later.
Have narrowed it down to the Audio-GD SA-31 and the Schiit Lyr, both of which get really good reviews. As far as I see it:
- SA-31: really low noise floor (which i like), pure Class A design
- Lyr: Supposed to be a blend of tube and SS sound per 6moons (it is a hybrid after all) - however, NOT Pure Class A beyond 100mA or something like that
Any thoughts on how these 2 compare?
