Hopefully I've got this in the right place. I've had a Schiit Bifrost / Lyr combo running for a while now for my headphones but have just bought some Wharfedale Diamond 9.1 speakers.
From the reading I've done so far, it seems as though I can't just power them off of the Lyr – most places recommend an integrated amp but I figure I can use the Lyr as a preamp and I just need a power amplifier.
So, I've got a couple of questions:
- Am I right in thinking I only need a power amplifier and can use the Lyr as a preamp?
- If so, what's my best option for a power amp? I'm looking to go as cheap as possible ($200?) :D
Thanks in advance!
