Schiit Audio Lyr 3 Review

June 27, 2020



Schiit Audio has completely re-designed their Lyr headphone amp around the new “Continuity” design. What does it mean and how well will it power your headphones?

Buy from here:

Schiit Happened Chapter for more info:

Notes:
1. Tube rolling isn’t covered. The video was already getting long and I haven’t found it makes a dramatic difference with the tubes I have on hand.
2. Pre-amp functionality isn’t covered.

  • Would you review the asgard3 please. So wanna pick it. Stumped between it and the smsl sp200 although smsl is Chinese made and I don't prefer that. There is good chifi though so no hate.

  • @Currawong Gold review! Thanks! Would you suggest pairing the Lyr 3 with a pair of Grado PS 1000? I'm listening to almost any kind of music (a little less classic and opera). Thanks you!

  • Great video . I Have a question between the LyR and Mjolir 2 which one would you recommend ? my headphone sennheiser hd 800s and the hd 650 IEM jh audio Roxanne.

  • I have a pair of hd650 and Grado ps500e, and I Plan on buying planar or electrostatic later on. Should I get the Jotunheim or the lyr? Both with a multibit dac.

  • What's the best amp/dac combo or stack under $1000?

  • +Currawong Im buying the HD660s, will the Lyr 3 Multibit be a good compagnon?
    I listen to some music but i will mostly play games or watch movies with them.

  • I have the Beyerdynamic 990 pro 250 Ohm. Should i 115vac or 230vac? Do i need a dac or?
    And i have also thought of upgrading my headset. Should i go for any of the Sennheisers or the Beyerdynamic 1990 Pro? Or any other you recommend.

  • I have been testing some ken rad smoked/black glass vt 231 (mil spec) 1944 tubes I picked up for this and they sound pretty damn good. They have more bass and a better sound stage than the schiit tung-sol and very, very close to the same resolution and clearity. I would recommend if you can find them. -headphone used was the elex for these tubes

  • Hi! Thanks so much for this great content. I am having my friend bringing one of Schiit amp back from the US for me, really having a hard time deciding between the one, Jotenheim, and Valhalla

    SUPERTOMMO June 27, 2020 5:50 pm Reply
  • Would you recommend this for the HD700? If not what would you recommend for a dac/amp for around $500?

  • I like good audio quality and I listen to music a lot. I usually use my PC with a sound card attached is a shure headphone. I'm fairly satisfied with the audio quality. My question is, if I get a better headphone, a dac and an amp, would the quality of the sound be twice as good?

  • Thanks for sharing, however, I find myself struggling to listen carefully to your review. You talk quite fast, but maybe I'm just a bit too slow. Cheers!

  • Thanks for the great review. Have you listened to or reviewed the Jotunheim? Curious how it compares to the Lyr.

    Luis Vazquez June 27, 2020 5:50 pm Reply
  • Can you please compare this with Massdrop THX AAA 789? I know they are different, but I am curious how they perform with planrs like Hifiman Edition X or Audeze LCD series.

  • What is better for Beyerdynamics DT880?The Lyr 3 + 4490 DAC or the Valhalla 2 + Bifrost 4490 GEN5 USB? Does Lyr 3 have agressive highs with DT880? I like the Vali 2 with my DT880. What should i get?

  • I just purchased this amp to pair with my hd800S and read a few posts on forums claiming this amp destroyed there headhpones. What is your opinion on this? Lyr 3 sounds great so far. I opted for the multibit Dac module and I'm wondering if I should of just gone for the multibit bifrost or possibly a Yggdrasil. Thanks. Love the channel. =)

  • Very nice review. I appreciated hearing how it sounded great with every combination of headphone / DAC. I own a Lyr 2 and love. I am also hearing nice things about the Lyr 3, this review included!

  • good review sir! Did you notice any jump in quality when using other tubes besides the schiit supplied tubes? Many of us on head-fi (believe you participated in the discussion a bit as well) have noticed a solid jump up in resolution and other qualitative aspects when rolling in a better tube. That stock tungsol sounded a bit "zingy" to me – slightly metallic sheen to it.

    Great Combo!! Thanks for a great video!!

    Albert C. June 27, 2020 5:50 pm Reply
  • Great review! Please compare the mass drop CTH and the Vali 2

  • You should do a JDS Labs El Stack(El AMP and EL DAC) review.

  • Would love to see a review of the MCTH as your I initial impressions are quite different from what comes up in the forums particularly about sq. To note: the amp needs 50-100 hours of burn in to sound the best according to Alex cavalli and others on the forums

  • oof, I don't understand any of the tech

    Albert C. June 27, 2020 5:50 pm Reply
  • Can you do a 6xx and elex comparison. They have both been on massdrop frequently in the last couple months and can’t decide on if the elex is charging more for house sound/branding or genuine refinement and improvement over headphones below its price range.
