    I've heard people saying that the Modi is a little bright and has a little glare to the sound, and that the Bifrost is overall smoother than the Modi.
    Does this seem to reach your experience as well?

    My Lyr 2 has a new friend, I'm very excited. =D

    I just received my Bitfrost with the latest upgrades, along with the Lyr 2. I was excited but no sound comes out of it at all.
    When I try to install the USB drivers it tells me "please connect device" repeatedly and then terminates because it says it cannot find the device. However when I look into the device manager it is detected just fine, and selected as the default audio device. I am using a USB 2.0 cable as asked.
    When I try it on my Macbook Air and select the peripheral for sound output, it's the same thing. No sound comes out.
    I don't know what else to do, I'm really at a loss here, and nervous about having received something defective.
    There has to be something I'm not doing right but what? I've checked everything I could think of. And yes it is set to USB output.

    Dont worry, even if you really did get a defective one Schiit will take care of you and youll only be out some time. That being said, have you tried it from your MacBook Air via an optical cable? Have you tried running a source directly through the Lyr alone to make sure the amp is working?
  8. Becomelikeyou
    You appear to be right, a source from the Lyr directly gives me the same result. No sound, except for sporadic hissing.
    I don't understand because I tried to follow the instructions.
    What else can I do?

    They are probably closed today, but wait until tomorrow and give Schiit a call. I have never owned a Lyr so I wouldnt know what else to suggest. I would recommend however if you have another amp that you can feed with just the Bifrost that you try that to make sure the DAC is working as expected.

    Did you check to see if the Lyr's tubes are properly seated?

    the first image is the photo of my Bifrost Uber, the second image is the photo of an XMOS DAC that I bought from ebay. I have circled the oscillators [Clocks] of both DACs in the images. How do the oscillators compare ? which one is better, also, is the oscillator on Uber good ?

    Ok I might have the opportunity to get my hands on a Bifrost Uber with the USB Gen2 upgrade in it and just cant find the right spot on this forum to post this question so I hope this place will work, will it be a noticeable upgrade over going analog from my Mac Mini to my Asgard 2? Also plan on jacking in a XBox One into it as well (Optical) and a CD player (coaxial). Whats the consensus on how this beautiful piece of gear sounds? I know my Asgard 2 was a leaps and bounds upgrade in headphone audio so I can't imagine the Bifrost Uber is a lemon.

    I have an iMac. And I go out to a Wyrd, then to Bifrost Uber w/USB Gen 2, then to Asgard 2. I love my sound. I did not spend much time listening without the Bifrost, so can't compare effectively. But I can say that with all in place, the sound is great.
    Hope that helps.

    Dude, it will be better. I guarantee.
