The Schiit Lyr2 is an amp, not a combo.
I have Alpha Primes and have listened to the O2+ODAC with them and found it didn't have enough power for my tastes. I have the Lyr2 and BifrostUber (a separate DAC) and as Reddog notes, it's a fantastic-sounding set-up. I also have used a ALO International to power my Primes--before purchasing the Lyr2+Bifrost combo--and although it was better than the O2+ODAC to my ears, the International still wasn't enough power to make the Primes sing.
Personally, I'd like even more power and am thinking seriously about the Mjolnir2 to replace the Lyr2 for my Primes.
If you can, get to an audio show or headfi meet to hear more of this stuff in person before buying.
well im pretty new to this whole audiophile scene. im not really techy and dont get into the nitty griity of all the details since i dont understand most of it but trying to change that. Do you think the lyr2/bitfrost combo would be good for me. and i am wondering about the voltage i dont know what to pick do i go with 115vac or 230vac?
