Personally I always buy used whenever I can especially on headfi because all the members here take impeccable care of the gear so usually its like new.  also it saves me a lot of money and when I resell to upgrade to newer gear I take a small loss on it rather than a large one. Some people though just prefer to buy new.  It is up to you.  So far 0 problems with buying and selling gear here.

Good point, i guess i need to take a leap, as i always get paranoid buying second hand... (even cars i buy brand new, even though its very stupid to do so, especially in the UK).

 

Thing is, I heard Soloist SL is basically the Soloist with less power and no pre out, sound wise is same in terms of signature. Nobody seems to talk about V200 nowadays XD

How does the Soloist SL compare to the Lyr with good tubes?

Soloist is more lively than the Lyr. Not saying the Lyr isn't good, it's just the Soloist is one of my favorite single-ended amps on the block.

Oh right. Even when the Lyr has good tubes?

Soloist takes it for me. I like the signature more just because I'm not a huge fan of tubes one way or another. I'll explain why:

 

Choice is a prison for me and I could never sleep knowing there are a set of tubes I haven't auditioned yet and that was my problem so thats why I was like FUGGIT and ordered the Mjolnir haha..

Haha! I'm kind of like me haha. I love collecting things like knives, cards and limited edition stuffs and the thought of there being more out there just drives me insane... If I upgrade my Lyr to the Soloist, will I hear a difference?

You will definitely hear a difference. wink.gif I appreciate the LCD 2 more on the Soloist vs Lyr (with stock tubes). There are improvements, and then there are differences. I can't say there is a huge gap in sq, but there is a difference enough for you to notice and decide which suits your preferences best.

What dac will you be pairing with it?

The Lyr with the right tubes is indeed a beautiful thing.

The Bifrost UBER with USB. I feel like the Soloist SL with the Bifros would be a great combo and wouldn't mind selling off my Lyr for it.
