Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread - Page 353  

post #5281 of 8735

I'm planning on investing in a Lyr Amp and it appears there are at least a couple of different Tubes you can order it with. Does the consensus have an opinion as to which Tube is better? Would anyone know the differences between the offerings as it relates to the sound of the Amp? 

 

 

Here's the blurb I saw on their website:

Roll Your Own 
Lyr ships with either new-production JJ ECC88 tubes or NOS GE 6BZ7 tubes, but feel free to substitute any 6DJ8, 6922, ECC88, 6BZ7, CV2492, CV2493, or 6N1P type tube, new or old, American or Russian or Chinese. The ability to use different tubes lets you tune the overall sound signature of Lyr to your specific preferences.

Speaking of my collection.

My Lorenz valves haven't arrived from Lithuania yet.

Order some tubes from Russia and Lithuania will seem like overnight FedEx.

Is there a chance that Lyr with the right tubes would work well with sensitive headphones like Denon D7000 or W3000ANV? What tubes would they be?

Yeah, I'm about to put them on Flea bay but thought I'd offer them here first where they'll be most appreciated.

Eddie, how much did you buy those Lorenz CCa for originally? Out of curiosity.

post #5292 of 8735

Yeah. I was looking for Lorenz 3mica...but it's impossible.

I found other kind of Lorenz but it's 250+, it's out my league.

I took them in trade for a piece of equipment. I think I was asking $200 for the kit I was selling.


I put them on my tube tester when I received them but since then, they've been stored unused - I have too many tubes right now and thought that they're too good to waste just sitting there.

These are Lorenz Stuttgart 3-mica...in case anyone is interested:

He sells them separately because he can't match them with his tester (so he told me).  The four 3-mica tubes I got recently were from this seller and work just fine.

 

Again, in case anyone is interested...wink_face.gif
