Product : Lyr 2

Schiit Audio Lyr 2 is the next generation of one of the most popular high-power headphone amps, with added versatility and convenience. It's 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.

Schiit Audio Lyr 2 is a extremely high-output headphone amplifier with a new Dynamically Adaptive output stage that provides high voltage output into virtually any headphone, up to 6 watts into 32 ohms, while maintaining excellent overall efficiency. Now, if you’re a headphone guy, you’re thinking 6 watts! That’ll make the magic smoke come out of my headphones! Why do you need that kind of power? Well, we have one word for you: orthodynamics.

The completely reworked Lyr 2 to make it an even higher-performing, more flexible amp. We added a gain switch so you can now use efficient headphones (and even many IEMs.) We've also cut the noise with a new regulated high-voltage supply and DC regulated heaters. A refined Dynamically Adaptive output stage transitions seamlessly from Class A to Class AB, for excellent overall efficiency. 

Schiit Audio Lyr 2 offers two gain settings. 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. In addition, the preamp outputs can easily be connected to powered speakers, for a complete desktop system.

The new Dynamically Adaptive output stage allows us to pack almost 6X the output power of Asgard 2 into an amp that runs slightly cooler. (Now, that doesn’t mean it runs cool. If you want a cold amp, you need to look elsewhere.) It works by sensing the current flowing through the output stage, and dynamically reconfiguring from Class-A single-ended to push-pull Class AB. The result is both pure Class-A sound and the ability to drive virtually any headphone, including low-impedance and low-efficiency models.

Roll Your Own 

Lyr 2 ships with 6BZ7 tubes, but feel free to substitute any 6DJ8, 6922, or ECC88 type tube, new or old, American or Russian or Chinese. The ability to use different tubes lets you tune the overall sound signature of Lyr to your specific needs.

You can also now fit the Schiit Lyr 2 with Schiit's LISST or solid state tubes which make this unit a solid state amplifier if required.

Please make no mistake: even though Lyr 2 is the same size as Asgard 2 and Valhalla 2, it’s one of the most powerful headphone amplifiers you can buy. We will not be responsible if you blow up your headphones with it as it is fitted with a volume control!

3-Year UK Warranty 

Most of Lyr 2 is covered by a limited warranty that covers parts and labour for three years. That’s 3 years. Yes Three. Compare that to the competition. The parts that aren’t covered by a 3-year warranty: the tubes. Tubes are covered by a 28-day warranty. They should last 5000 hours. Please note this doesn't mean free upgrades!
