To butt in.....

 

I've been under the impression that the HE-500's and the LCD's are similar cans, antidotally.

I'd guess they'll sound great.

O.K.

 

If anybody's interested, the former Amperex property in Hicksville seems to be available for lease: http://www.realtagroup.com/sites/default/files/230%20Duffy%20Ave%20Property%20Flyer_REalta%20Group.pdf normal_smile%20.gif

 

This is where the 6922s and 7308s with the ∗ factory code (or the military CEP code) were made.

Thinking...
How would you compare RTC-LYR-LCD3  to RTC-LG-HD800

I like "jaw-dropper"

They were both excellent, just different. The RTC tubes with LCD's on the Lyr were very liquid, "round" and slightly warm; thoroughly musical and enjoyable. With the same tubes, the HD800's on the LG gave a brighter sound, but much more balanced and musical than they were with the Lyr. Also extremely enjoyable. The 800's were just OK on the Lyr with these tubes. The LCD's did not sound good at all on the LG with the RTC's - narrow, funky soundstage and veiled.

So, to sum up, I loved the RTC tubes with the LCD-3 on the Lyr, and with the HD800 on the LG. it is a tie in terms of quality of presentation, response across the spectrum, soundstage/"air" (maybe just a tad more with the HD800+LG) and plain old musical enjoyment.

Point taken! The RTC's should sound great with the LCD-2's, if the LCD-3's are similar. Perhaps a little darker sound with the LCD-2's? (Don't have them so I can't really say).

I've never listened to the HE-500's, so can't say. Maybe someone else?

I just ordered a HD-800 so I could have a little shoot-off against the T1.  I'm thinking of starting off with the Amperex OGs on the Lyr.  I may have to go through all my tubes again until I find the best pairing.  

post #6893 of 8735

Well i got a bit bored...

 

 

What could that tube be?

 

Yes it's Tungsram E80CC.

 

I only had 2 cheap chinese socket savers on hand, and needed to stack both to make the adaptor, so no listening impressions yet because i can only use 1 tube until i get more socket savers.

 

If Schiit says "Don't use them, wrong pin-out" it can probably be made possible wink.gif

 

Here is "Ghetto socket saver/converter"

 

 

 

P.S. Don't try this at home, you could end up blowing Schiit up.

Received my Tubemonger socketsavers and Brimar 6BQ7A's this morning so looking foward to some tube rolling action this evening.

The socketsavers are excellent and the Brimars look tobein fantastic shape - the boxes look like they've literally come fresh from the factory. I'll probably try them after an hour or so's warm up and again after they've been run in for 12hrs ish to see if I noticed as big a transformation as ilikepootersdid. Should be fun smily_headphones1.gif
