Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread - Page 272  

post #4066 of 8735

Hi guys.

I ll be buying the Lyr/HE-500 combo.

Which of the three tubes shippable by Schiit audio would fit best?

The E88CC, 6N1P or the 6BZ7?

Thanks!

post #4067 of 8735

The 6N1P tubes.  But that's my opinion.  I have the 6BZ7's and the 6N1P's and I think they have better clarity over the 6BZ7's that Schiit offers.

K thanks!Any other reasonably priced tubes that go well with the Lyr-HE~500?

Thank you for the link --- That's a beautiful film ... all that great machinery (including "early robots" looks to me) - it seemed earlier than 1960s to me---but I do not know the history, in fact, watched it with the sound off.

Hi guys how would the Electro-harmonix 6922/E88CC (gold pin) (http://www.audiophonics.fr/electroharmonix-6922e88cc-broches-plaque-goldpin-p-6161.html) sound with the Lyr?

They are not too expenisve.

Would they be an improvement over the stock tubes?

How would they be in terms of bass?

 

Thanks!

Post Mortem - they replaced both of the socket savers (the failed and the good one), and these seem to be slightly updated, so they gave me a new matching set.  Hats off to Tubemonger - they took the initiative and have me back up and running, and I have a spare that I'm loaning to a coworker with a tube amp that was interested in his own set and wondered how it would look  :)

I have not heard them in my Lyr, but I used to own the Electro Harmonix 12AX7's for an old phono pre that I had.  They were extremely warm sounding, and after reading through the comments in the rest of this thread, the EH 6922 seem to share that same sound signature.  It might depend on what headphones you're using.

Primarily with the HE-500

Can anyone recommend a tube that would be similar to the Gold Lion 6922 but with more/better bass?  The GL 6922 have great transparency in the mids, but I find the bass to be very lacking.

post #4077 of 8735

The Siemens E88CC  have tremendous bass but they are vintage tubes if you are after great bass you wll surely either need to change something in your signal chain or start spilling out the cash for Vintage tubes..

The Lorenz Mica's also have tremendous bass if you can find a pair.. Their are others but every tube is dependent on your audio chain not one tube suits every headphone , DAC and the Lyr not counting your souce..

 

So get ready to spill some bucks... The truth is being an Audiophile is expensive as Schiit..

The first few hours I reported a little hissing with my Lorenz Stuttgart 3mica. Last night 20hours later it is gone! I cannot believe.gs1000.gif

Currently my headphone cash box is empty so I sell it now for a very good price.

MSRP is $140.  You're selling used tubes for more than retail NOS.

 

Also, I'm not sure why you keep continually plugging your FS items in this thread.  You don't need to repeat yourself.

post #4080 of 8735
Okay when you have NOS for 140USD I will take it immediately;)
