Schiit - Lyr 2

Own this at an EMI of Rs. 3,840 onwards

Confused? Don't be, when there's a Guru to guide the way.

The Schiit Lyr 2 is one of the most flexible headphone amps available today. It offers both tube hybrid and all-solid-state options. A notable feature, you can also switch between the tube and solid state whenever you want to!

The Lyr 2 evidently produces your music with more substance and a full body. The Lyr 2 opens a  soundstage dramatically to fill the headphones with space and sound. 
The Imaging is excellent without any edge or artificiality. The subtleties of your music are clearly expressed with detail. The combination is purely warm and sumptuous. Experience music like you are listening to it live at a concert hall.

Made in the USA, the Schiit Lyr 2 is a complete control center for your desktop system, with preamp outputs for powered desktop speakers, as well as a gain switch for use with virtually any headphone.

  • Flexibility for All Headphones 

     With the Lyr 2, you can discover what a high-power tube hybrid amp can do. Or get LISST and go 100% solid-state. Or do both! No other amp offers you this unparalleled flexibility. You also get gain switching and a 100% regulated heater and high-voltage supply that makes Lyr 2 fully ready for efficient headphones and most IEMs. And you'll have tons of power—Schitt's Dynamically Adaptive output stage transitions seamlessly from Class A to Class AB, for excellent overall efficiency. 

    Works with IEMs, Orthos & Active Monitors

    The Lyr 2 offers two gain settings ie. the gain of 1 is good for most sensitive headphones, including efficient on-ear models and many IEMs, while the gain of 8 is ideal for inefficient orthodynamics and high-impedance headphones. Also, the preamp outputs can easily beattached to powered speakers, for a complete desktop system.

    Dynamically Adaptive Output Stage

    Schiit's Lyr 2 has a current-sensing adaptive output topology which allows the amplifier to dynamically adjust to the headphone load. The primary benefits are essentially single-ended Class-A operation for high-impedance headphones, moving seamlessly to push-pull Class A and finally into Class AB as current needs increase thereby leading to  much higher overall efficiency.

    Roll Your Own Music

    Like Lyr, Lyr 2 lets you "roll" many different tube types to your own preference. You can use a multitude of Schiit tubes and get the sound you're looking for.

  • There is simply this sonic sense of a step up from entry level desktop amps to the Lyr 2 in terms of dynamics and physicality, and it has more dynamic punch than the Valhalla 2, at least with the latter's stock tubes."

    "With my Oppo PM-1 headphones the Lyr 2 uncorked superior dynamics, brawn and heft; the Marantz was thinner, dimensionally challenged and much less fun to listen to. In fact, try as I might, I couldn't find anything the Marantz did better."

Schiit Lyr 2 review

The Schiit has arrived !! thanks HZ for quick delivery/competitive price & warranty. The BQ is solid with solid brushed aluminium cover which is a single U shaped piece with Schiit logo ecthed on it, I bought this to drive my power hungry Hifiman HE-560 and it does it's job so well. The output has solid weight and the already wide sound stage of HE-560 feels even more wider and the instruments are so well seperated, I don't have a matching DAC yet and I am currently feeding it through my ifi micro iDSD DAC/AMP combo bypassing the amp section, hoping it will become much better with a proper desktop DAC. This is my first full sized Desktop Amp, so cannot compare it with any thing. There is plenty bass and detail when I feed it from my Laptop/ifi micro iDSD DAC with my music running on foobar 2000 and just the low ends 55Hz & 77Hz boosted by 4~6 db and rest all frequencies at 0 db boost. The midrange opens up only after the AMP warms up for atleast 10 to 15 mins and the high frequency is smooth with plenty of detail and instrument seperation. Read in many forums that changing tubes can make it more sweet sounding, so hope for the best and I am also looking forward to get the LISST tubes to see how it sounds on a full solid state set up. One warning though which you can read in almost every review it gets bloody hot, so much that you have to watch out to even touch the volume knob at times. I am sure that the components can withstand the heat..we have 5 years warranty :) Overall I am very happy I am looking forward to get the add ons like a better DAC/different tubes and test different headphones...ha ha..the buying never ends...:)

Hello Balaji, do you practice being so wonderful? Thank you kindly for your words of appreciation. We are glad you liked them. Please do visit us again soon. :)
