Used the 3 pin XLR outputs. Sources: ODAC, Xonar Essence ST and Naim CD5 player. All single ended.

When I see talk about Lyr and LCD2 , what tubes do you guys prefer for this combo ? Just recently bought Lyr & LCD2.2 and I'am thinking about getting some nice tubes.

 

Thanks in advance ;)

new owner of a pair of lcd2F, and i have a lyr now, i like my telefunken tubes 

post #7729 of 7739
Which telefunkens? IIRC a terrific match with the non-fazored LCD2.

Cool. Telefunkens are good tubes. Obviously they sound good with your 2F tongue_smile.gif

check out the lyr tube rollers thread

Thanks. Been there, done that (found National/Matsu 6922s very good with my Lyr 1).

Use a Decware Taboo and CSP2 for my tube fix these days - tube rolling is way cheaper!

With the LCD-2F, you really don't need much to drive it.  

I have the Lyr 2 with Uber Bifrost but most of the time use the lowly 450 Geek Out and it sounds pretty good.

Hey Guys! I have the lcd 2 rev 2 with some kickass toxic cables to go along with it. 6.3 plug. Currently running it throug V90-Dac with Power Supply and the matrix m stage . Im thinking im gonna upgrade it to a dac/amp combo in the 600-1000$ area. I've been looking att Yulong D200 and Audio-gd NFB-10ES2 as two alternatives. Do you guys know if they would match up well and have good synergy with the lcd2 rev 2 or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance! :)

What is the difference between the Audio-gd NFB-10ES2 and the NFB-28?

10ES2 is I think a discontinued version with an older USB implementation IIRC.

The NFB has amazing synergy with the LCD-2s.  I haven't had the temptation to upgrade from it since I bought it in February 2012.

10ES2 does not have line in

Probably it does not support DSD without an extra kit
