    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Please excuse my ignorance, I'm new to tubes and I'm trying to learn a little more about them.   What is a grey shield? Is it the grey little boxes within the tube? Looks like all the tubes that the Lyr takes have grey shields.

    Hello!   I am coming from a Asus Xonar DGX, a $50 sound card with a build in amp, and my experience with it has been great. I've recently bought the Schiit Lyr to pair with my HE-500 and sad to say, I'm a little disappointed with the Lyr. In my experience, found very little, if any sonic...

    I have a Xonar DGX for my HE-500. Do I need a better DAC?

    I listen to mostly electronica (progessive house, liquid drum and bass, and trance),for games like dota 2 and starcraft 2, and of course movies.   Sound quality is very important to me and therefore I have bought the He-500 which I believe has gotten me 80%. The amp 10%    I don't know...

    I have a Xonar DGX for my HE-500. Do I need a better DAC?

    Do I need to upgrade to a DAC?   My setup: - HiFiMAN HE-500 - Schiit Lyr - Asus Xonar DGX   I have my eyes on a Schiit Bifrost but I have serious doubts that it will improve the sound like my amp did, although the improvement was small.

    Question...   In regards to the usb->dac->active monitors, I understand you'll need optical cables inorder for this to work. In my case, I'll be using KRK rp6 which don't have optical in but rca,trs, and xrs.   Heres the kicker, what if I were to use a dolby digital to analog converter...

    NEED HELP. need a usb dac/amp that can do active speakers.
