Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread - Page 342  

post #5116 of 8735

Any idea where I can buy a multi tap transformer to use in my tube tester rebuild project?

Mine leaks

I am going to strip the tester down to 9 pin tubes only.  The heater is (of course)  6.3V

Is the plate voltage 30V  ? 

 

I also want to build in test taps, using orphaned tube sockets, for a multimeter and an oscilloscope.

Tubes wise, I finally managed to pick up a Lorenz CCa (3 mica).

The last time I posted my Lorenz Stuttgart shootout impressions over here, that was the only missing link in my Lorenz tube collection.

Except for the CCa (3 Mica), I managed to cover the entire range of 3 Mica vs 2 Mica

and

the CCa vs PCC88 vs E88CC variants the last time.

 

Headphones wise , I've finally upgraded to a Beyer T1 from my DT880.

The normal Amperex which I also have has about 90% of the sonics of the pinched waist.

 

 

And which Amperex would that be?

If anyone is interested in getting a customized tube tester, please feel free to PM me.

 

i've got a contact in France who is a tube tester engineering genius ala Leonardo Da Vinci.

For about €200, he helped me build a customised tube tester for 2 preamp and 1 Output tubes.

It comes with a digital LCD which can provide readings accurate to 1 decimal place.

 

The only catch is that you have to provide your own box.

I used a wooden Kleenex Tissue box holder for that purpose.

By normal, I'm referring to the other USA* Amperex tubes with Grey Shields.

Well if you update your Lorenz reveiw, please repost it. I would love to see how the 3mica cca stacks up against the rest. The 7dj8 Lorenz 3mica was my favorite tube pair for the lyr, so I'm sure the cca version is pretty sweet.

I've performed the same identical upgrade, headphone wise.  Tube-wise, I'm content for now on the diminished end of the diminishing returns curve.

Please excuse my ignorance, I'm new to tubes and I'm trying to learn a little more about them.

 

What is a grey shield? Is it the grey little boxes within the tube? Looks like all the tubes that the Lyr takes have grey shields.

You are referring to the plates, there are two smaller rectange pieces on opposite sides of the plates, that run from the top to bottom of the mica(thin metal horizontal circle). These are the sheilds and are commonly a chrome/silver color, if it matches the color of the plates(grey) that indicates its an older tube.

Mr " Skull and Bones" over here used to call me Lord SLOTH.

i'll just have to move my lazy butt..... :)

 

Yes, the 3 Mica variants seem to be more balanced from top to bottom sonically.

I prefer their sonics over the 2 Mica variety.

@HK .... like your new avatar .... is that new direct to space and back again vehicle?

Hah yeah that's sounds like him.
No hurry I was just curious how it faired against the rest of the lot.
