Lyr just arrived after it's trip across the Atlantic, and I'm up schiit creek with 6 watts of paddle    Simply put, I'm loving this amp with the LCD-2. It really works well with their bass capability without letting it get out of control, or losing definition, and the mids and highs manage to get just the right amount of tubeyness, if you're into it, whilst remaining well resolved and not overly warmed up.   Definately agree that the Gold Lions raise it's game,...
Can't wait to get my Lyr (should be shipped at the end of the month) so I can pitch it against my Musical Fidelity M1 HPA.   The LCD-2 already sound *amazing* with the M1, and doesn't feel underpowered at all (volume pot goes 7 o'clock round to 5 o'clock, normal volume for me with the LCD-2 is between 9 and 11, beyond 12 is probably hearing-damage territory) but I've yet to hear them with another amp so can't compare. I can say that it's extremely deft with the fine...
What tubes did you replace the JJs with?    
Same here.    
The eagle has landed  Anyone watching the timelines, I've put mine at the bottom.   Arrived in perfect condition, sorry for the crappy cellphone photo. It's an Audiolab 8200CD > Musical Fidelity M1 HPA > LCD-2   Too early for impressions after a 5-minute listen, but what I heard off the bat was favourable to say the least. The M1 HPA doesn't feel like it's breaking a sweat to drive them. I'll report more when I've had a good sitdown with...
  Thanks. Specifically with refernce to the HE-6 - are they wired correctly and only in need of the speakerwire>XLR adaptor? 
Apologies in advance if this is a dense question, but how are you guys connecting headphones to a speaker amp... do they come with a cable that does this or is it a DIY effort?   I have an 18w class-A valve amp which might work well (http://www.fat-man.co.uk/docs/product_07/iTube_182_with_ValveDock.shtml), it has a 4 and 8 ohm taps...so I guess maybe the 8ohm would be suitable, I'm not sure how the impedance-matching would work with the HE-6's 50ohm load.   I...

I'm with you - I'm in the UK too and want mine coming over the water nice and snug. Plus they'll either be at home on their hook, or out travelling, in which case the plastic box looks like a great solution for keeping them safe and sound.
