I should start a thread in music science reporting the results of double blind ABX testing between a $500 Bordeaux and PBR. After 25 iteration people can't tell the difference, so you might as well drink PBR.

It has been 24 hours and I have not received a reply from my enquiry to Audeze.

Then again, sent an emai to Schiit 4 days ago asking which Lyr tube slot was left and which was right. Haven't received a reply from them either. Does anyone know the answer?

Audeze takes their time getting back to you. 2-3 days normally.

Schiit is always responsive, unless there's backorders or something. And of course, sometimes EMails get lost in the shuffle.

 

Top is right and bottom is left.

Excellent. Thanks for the answer.
I was surprised with Schiit because they were very responsive in the past.

I'll cool my jets wit Audeze.

Easy way to find out. Pull one tube, then play something.

For those that have them, what markings do the Lorenz Stuttgart's have on them? How do you ID them? Thanks.

Some don't have any anymore. Looking at the getter's is a good way at identifying 2-mica from 3-mica or fakes all together.

The print will be an oval with the word Lorenz inside of it, I've seen white,black,and brown print. Then the type, ecc88,pcc88,cca... will be centered and printed under the oval logo. However some were not printed with a label, like my fused getter 2mica pair or like para said they have just rubbed off. Makes it kind of tricky


This might help too

Just wanted to share that I ordered a pair of socket savers from tubemonger and they are wonderful!! Tubes are SOOO much easier to roll and...the lyr doesn't get nearly as warm. Great purchase. biggrin.gif

They look nice.  I must have the cheap Chinese version.

.Audeze denied my request to drive over and listen to their headphones

 

I had to call.  After 3 days they never replied to my email

Wow.....that was unexpected......what was their reasoning?  Do they have another local distributor that's willing to let you audition?

They said it was insurance.  I think that's weak.  I'm not visiting a steel mill and I'm certain they at least have a break room.

 

I have my choice of an hour south or an hour and a half north to LA.

 

edit:

I'm going to make the purchase from AudioAdvisor, etc.  $80 to the state ain't gonna happen.

It's not fair for me to take up a merchant's time when I won't be purchasing.
