To improve on Lyr 2, Schiit had to completely reinvent the amp, introduce two new technologies, and make it modular.
For the majority of MrSpeakers users, who use digital source, we've selected our favorite configuration to make it easily available: using the 6SN7 tube with the wonderful multibit DAC.
Power and Finesse in One
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 ¼” jack, you don’t need balanced headphones to take full advantage of Lyr 3.
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 NOS 6N8S tube, and also works with all NOS and 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 two different DAC modules, 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!
Multibit DAC Module
The Multibit DAC Module delivers Schiit’s unique digital filter and true multibit DAC architecture, as used in Modi Multibit and Bifrost Multibit.
Made in USA. Really.
By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. The vast majority of the total production cost of Lyr 3—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US.
5-Year Warranty and Easy Return Policy
Lyr 3 is covered by a 5-year limited warranty that covers parts and labor.
