Well, what I can I say. The overwhelming peer pressure worked on me so I placed an order for the Bifrost Multibit + Lyr 3 combo. I already owned both of these (not at the same time) and sold them for various reasons. One exception is that Bifrost Multibit I had was the very first revision. I have owned a number of different amps over the last 5 years (The original Vali, Vali 2, Magni 3, Valhalla 2 , Lyr 3. Burson Soloist Mk2, Atom, Bottlehead Crack) and my two favourite ones of all by far have been the Valhalla 2 and the Lyr 3. Schiit must be doing something right when it comes to their tube amps. Like I said before, I really like the predictability and non-existent floor noise of solid state amps, but I just don't get the same level of satisfaction listening to them.
