SCHIIT JUST GOT REAL WITH THE LYR 3 HEADPHONE AMP

There’s some new Schiit coming; the Schiit Lyr 3 headphone amp, to be precise.

The Lyr 3 is the first modular headphone amplifier/pre amplifier that offers the ultimate in configuration options.

The Schiit Audio Lyr 3 is a tube hybrid headphone amp with Schiit’s true Multibit technology built-in.

The third generation Lyr utilises Schiit’s new ‘Coherence’ hybrid single tube/solid-state architecture. Additionally, there is their new ‘Continuity’ constant-transconductance output stage as well as the same modular design as their mighty Jotunheim.

You can add a true Multibit DAC, a regular AK4490 DAC, or even a phono preamp. Or, if you prefer, no module at all; the choice is yours. Furthermore, this clever design allows you to swap if and when technology changes!

Let me get into those new Schiit nomenclatures for a moment.

'Coherence' is a new way to put tubes and transistors together that eliminates interstage coupling capacitors and controls everything precisely with an operational point servo.

'Continuity' is a constant transconductance output stage that virtually eliminates one of the bugbears of every Class AB amp to bring it closer to Class A performance.

Schiit Audio in understandably pretty proud of this technology tour-de-force. The Lyr 3 is capable of kicking out 6 watts RMS of power at 32 ohms via the single-ended headphone jack.

The Schiit Lyr 3 headphone amp will be available in the UK soon, starting at £530. We hope to get ears on with it soon, so stay tuned!
