Also keep in mind they are basically light bulbs. They will eventually burn out and stop working.

But then again people buy consumable devices in this price range all the time without much thought. Think tablets. The battery dies and then there is basically little point to trying to replace it. Life on a tablet battery would be around 1800-4000 hours. Tubes 3000-5000-10000 hours depending on make and type for a pair.

 

It comes down to what you want, what is important to you and your habits.

    After two years, is there any consensus on what are the better tubes to match with the LCD-2 Rev 2? Searching "LCD" in this thread brings up 472 posts! Any specific pages in this thread with a wealth of info on this pairing? Thanks.

By the way, I am pretty impressed with how this thing sounds with the stock GEs. And the Bifrost as well, very happy with my Schiit.

Me too!! My Lyr & Bifrost combo is a nice step up from the headphone setup/kit I had. This ain't state of the art, but its very nice, musical and resolving with PRAT. I got Seimens & H CCAs , Telfunken 6922s & CCas and two other Amprex 6922 varients to try.   How many hours does it take for the Lyr to break in??

There's burn in for the chassis, then there's burn in for the tubes.

The 100 hour number was thrown around a lot in this thread, personally I noticed a fairly big difference in my tubes after about 20 hours. I guess it depends on the tubes, some may continue to change for the entire 100 hours, some may stabilize after a shorter period of time.

But either way the chassis should have burned in by the time you're done with your first pair of tubes.

I'm only interested in the Lyr chassis burn in. I have used my tubes in various systems just rolling them in for tuning. Most have 20-30 hours. I haven't had a 6922 application in ten years.
