Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread - Page 374  

post #5596 of 8735

Good amp for anything? I love the look of this amp/Bifrost stack. There not too big and they seem to perform very well. Could the Lyr/Bifrost handle all mid-fi cans? Yes, all, and I also have a O2.

WTF they actually work.  This is like the first time something like that happened.   It seems like I am getting better separation too.

I have limited experience with multiple cans.  I started with HD-650's and went to LCD2's.  There was nothing "wrong" with the HD-650's, I just new the LCD2's would that me to another place.    If that helps.

Yes, they can do great things for mid-fi cans.   I've tried 702s, HD650 and others through mine (amp only until today).  It delivers.  I just got my Bifrost today and ye gods it brings the noise.

Little things add up. But the DAC is a big one.

Every bit counts. lol  Welcome to mid-fi.

 

I've been breaking in everything... 80hrs and counting. These tubes at 50 hrs and its like the music finally showed up. Hope the space makes a show in the next 50.

I've gotten good impressions from other people on top you guys too, this may be my stack.. I love how small they are yet how prominent they are. Not sure if that makes sense, thats just what I thought when I saw it at a meet..

I know! I can't stop looking at them.  It's not like they're going to do anything, but I keep thinking they are dancing in my peripheral vision.

Indeed. Woke up this morning to see an e-mail from Tubemonger stating that I experienced a very rare problem and that a replacement pair is already on the way...at no charge.

 

Hats off to Tubemonger for the first-class service. beerchug.gif

Olga?) apparently has no way to track these things.

What with all the socket saver talk lately I had to get me a couple Plug & Play, 9-pin B9A NOVAL NOVIB Socket Saver©with Vibration Reduction Base, and Gold Plated Pins.

 

I can honestly say that I prefer Schitt's recessed look on the Lyr.

I got the Lorenz Sel from Olga!  Great sounding  so far...processing of burning!

 

With the new socket saver, tubes look taller than before..

I think they need dressing if they are going to stick up like that. Dampeners can't hurt. tongue_smile.gif

I've compared a lot of different 6922 tubes for my older Spoiler DAC design. By far the best tube I found was the Siemens CCA grey-plate. A pair of these is expensive, particularly strong ones. These were top performers made for the German phone company in the late 50s. They have finer grids than other tubes for superb extension. I tried these in a modded Lyr and they were great.
