Schiit Lyr3 No Dac


To improve on Lyr 2, we had to completely reinvent the amp, introduce two new technologies, and make it modular. Yes, that’s right. Not only is the new Lyr 3 a big sonic upgrade, it can be configured with the DAC or phono preamp of your choice or keep it just as a headphone amplifier.

Want to run IEMs? Sure. Need power for your HE-6? Sure. If this means nothing to you, just be confident that you can plug any headphone into Lyr 3 and get great sound. With full power delivered from the standard 6.3mm jack, you don’t need balanced headphones to take full advantage of Lyr 3.

Unparalleled Flexibility

Select from the internal card or rear-panel analog input, and pick high or low gain with convenient front switches. Connect the preamp output to your powered monitors for a complete desktop system—or use it as a front end to your speaker power amplifier. Lyr 3 provides all the flexibility you need.

Single Tube, Two Complementary Technologies

Now, you can enjoy a serious tube amp—that only requires a single tube. Our Coherence™ hybrid topology makes the most out of the supplied 6N8S tube, and also works with all new-production 6SN7 tube types. What’s more, Lyr 3 introduces Continuity™—a constant transconductance output stage which provides superior performance.

Configure Now, Ready For the Future

Select from a DAC moduleor a phono input module, or no module at all to tailor Lyr 3 exactly to your needs. Modular design means Lyr 3 won’t be dumpster-fodder when technology changes—just swap a card!

ES9028 DAC Module. Choose the ES9028 module with Unison USB™ for a world-class delta-sigma DAC.

MM Phono Input Module. Or, choose the MM phono input module, for 42dB of gain and passive RIAA, for great phono sound.

The vast majority of the production of the Lyr 3—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—is manufactured in the US.

Most of the Schiit Lyr 3 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!
