Some key findings:

- Lyr has slightly larger soundstage

- Lyr has more "attack"

- Mids are slightly smoother in the EF-5 however still amazing on the Lyr

- EF-5 sounds more intimate where as the Lyr sounds more further away

- Both fantastic amps with their own strengths...however SLIGHT advantage towards the Lyr. Love them both but will be letting go of my EF-5. 

 

 

The Lyr will likely sound better if you roll in some better tubes.  Those stock GEs are OK, but there are much better tubes out there.

Any recommendations so i don't have to scroll through the 300+ page tube rolling thread for the Lyr?

What's your budget?  What is important to you?  Large soundstage?  Bass?  Romantic mids?  Sparkling highs?

 

I haven't even received my Lyr yet, but I have read the thread.  You don't really have to read all 300 pages, but it would really be worth your while to read the last 50, or even the last 30.

I would say i value soundstage and mids above all else. Don't care too much for bass  but the Lyr + He-500 gives me a good amount of bass i'm happy with. 

 

I'll skim through it to see what I can find. I remember reading somewhere that the Amperex tubes were really nice.

Yeah, there are a lot of great ones, but some of them can be pricey.

 Very impressive and deserves another post.

 

Congrats, hope it was worth the wait (and I'm so pleased I'm not your neighbour;) beerchug.gif

Cause having a neighbor with that kind of system would be unbearable. Go next door and chill or party with great music and a cool couple. The HORROR! tongue.gif

So, when are we invited over to enjoy this nice cozy set up?  :P

 

That looks awesome though.  I've always wanted to put together a speaker set up, but I do not have an ideal room for it in my current living situation.  When I get my own place and can spend some time putting together a nice room for music, I would enjoy a setup similar to this.

Absolutely. Always need more audio nerds in my life. 

 

As for the room...mine is nowhere near ideal, but it still sounds great. After listening for awhile now though I realize how much I need this damn record cleaning machine. ;)
