Pf. I'm getting out of the game with some $100 dainty Schiit. Let you suckers keep the pockets empty. 

But to be serious, we'll see what Schiit's statement hybrid option offers. I do miss the ole Lyr because of y'all.

I hear that a woman's make up kit does well for this but I'm open for suggestions and amazon links.

I like option #1 But I think I should have ordered 1" OD tube.   Because the wall thickness of the 7/8" OD is .27"

I missed that.

I took calipers to a tube and it's 13/16" dia.

I can return it for a 1" with a .20 wall thickness.

 

Anyway it'll be fun to see.

I stored mine in their original boxes in a tupperware container.  If the tubes didn't come with boxes, I used these:

20 boxes for $3.

I couldn't afford the Mjolnir and I enjoyed the sound of the Lorenz and some of the other tubes.  I won't be on the same quest for the "perfect" tube like I was before.

PS - When it comes down to it, I guess I do like the "tube sound" over solid state...

I received the 3/4" Sorbothane feet today, installed them on my Lyr and Bifrost (I don't stack them). Really like them, tapping/pushing on the Lyr, it feels like it's got shocks or something now. darthsmile.gif
