Now a proud owner of a Lyr! First thing I did was to put in my Amperex Orange Globes and started listening! Although, when I first plugged my LCD2s in I could hear a very loud static noise (like sizzling bacon I guess?) when putting on my LCD2's in the left cup. I thought it was the headphones so I rearranged the tubes around, then the static noise came back again on the right side! Is it possible the tubes are damaged in some kind or way or do I have to "burn it in"?
Bummer cause they sounded really nice... And I just got them too :(
generally... if you had noise in the left ear, flipped the valves and now have noise in the right ear, you've got a valve with a problem.
I've heard bacon before and it has sizzled out.... once. give it some time. let them cook overnight.
