Think of all the cash you get to spend.

 

Tube extenders

Tube dampeners

A nice A/C power conditioner.

Amprex 65' Orange Globes

Amprex USN-CEP

Lorenz E188CC

Siemans/Haske 3 mica

Mullard CV2493's

Telefunken CCa's

58' Pinched Waist "D" getters.

For some reason my wife supports my glass habit, even though it's more expensive than crack.   Go figure.

I ended up going with something else... redface.gif

 

For the environment this amp will be in, the Lyr just wasn't going to be practical. It's going to stay out in a dusty workshop, and get moved frequently from there to my Garage and various other locations. I really wanted to go with a Tube Amp but I needed something more bang proof.

 

I ended up finding a nice compromise in the Music Hall PH25.2. It's got the Tube Sound, but it uses smaller tubes that are fully enclosed. You may have seen them around. I got to hear one yesterday and it's got a really nice warm tubey sound. Smooth extended highs and deep punchy Bass. I'd still have loved to get a Lyr for a little more money, but I know I'd end up regretting it when somebody knocked it on the floor. The Music Hall on the other hand, is built like a tank. Not the lovliest creature at the Ball, but good looking in a British sort of practical way.  tongue.gif

Give them at least 20 hours to burn in though - Then they open up. Really quite pleased with them.

 

However... Still the benchmark (for me and my tastes and my setup) are the Siemens CCa's. I have some Miniwatt PQ's coming soon and RTC E188CCs.  My Lyr has been running almost constantly for a two weeks now between burn in an listening time.

I must say they sounded good right out of the box, can't wait for the break-in. I bought a second pair today, I think they are almost as good as JAN-CEPs at this point based on swapping. Very happy with these guys, worth the wait.
