Trying out some bugle boys this morning with some John Mayer.
Pretty stellar results with the Lyr 2 swapping in 1965 Amerexe Bugle Boys. Only had about 20 minutes to listen, but compared to the stock Lyr 2 tubes I'm noticing a fairly large change in the soundstage. I didn't want to believe it, but dang....instead of instruments coming from either left and right directly, with the singer usually directly in the center of my head, I find instruments hovering out in front/left, or front/right of my head. Even the singer seems to float...
Kill it with fire!

There are definetly good days and bad days. Especially with allergy season and how it messes with my sinuses and makes my ears very painful and sensitive. On the bad days I just accept its a human thing and don't blame the system. Then I walk away, do something else, and come back another day when I'm able to appreciate the music.Also, regarding different times of day...listening at night when there is very little outside noise is almost a must with the HE-560. My...
