Schiit's practice is to charge (authorize) your card upon order placement-but if they do not ship within 3 days they release or credit back that charge until they actually ship....

 

When they are ready to ship they will re authorize/charge your card--

Just a question regarding a bifrost+lyr setup. Is it safe to leave them on all the time? (Whenever my computer is running) Would it be OK to use them for everything I do on my computer and not just high fidelity music? (youtube, movies, games)

 

Thanks and please let me know.

Sure, that's what I do with my Bifrost and Asgard.

 

Know that tubes do have a finite lifespan though, so they're going to eventually need to be replaced (is going to happen either way, but that will cause it to happen sooner).

Yeah, I know about that. How often would I have to replace them if I used the lyr for daily usage?

Depending on quality of the tube the estimate ranges a bit. 6dj8-5000hr, 6922,7308,cca-10,000hr

Wow, that is still a very long time.

Oh yeah, it's not like they're going to be dying on you monthly, it's just something to keep in mind smily_headphones1.gif

 

 

And unrelated to that, but I actually just sold all my Schiit eek.gif

 

Gonna be using my new portable amp (UHA-6S MkII) for now and maybe put the money towards either a better home setup or speakers...we will see.

Yup, they're staying (well, once they're fixed, wood just cracked on me). They sounded good enough through the portable amp at the meet that I'm going to stick with that for now and decide what to do. Who knows, may be a Mjolnir and Gungnir in my future.

post #1135 of 6172

I economized and made some changes today.

Had my 2nd Lyr hanging around waiting for the Gungnir.

"Thought, wait, this is too much."

 

Cancelled the Gungnir

Returned the 2nd Lyr

Ordered a set of the new little M&M for the 2nd system.

 

My replacement DacMagic Plus arrives today for the room system.

I'll either

A) Keep it.

B) Replace with another Bifrost

C) ?

Hi, I'm in my second evening with a new Bifrost+Lyr+HE500... Couldn't be happier!  It's been a short path from first decent headphones driven directly from my iPhone to this, but I have a hard time thinking I'll need anything else for a long time.  ;-)

Ha!  Thanks for the warning!

 

I have spent some time there.  Actually I purchased the Lyr with the GE tubes and the 6N1Ps.  I had the 6N1Ps in for a brief time while troubleshooting a ground loop hum before I had the backordered Bifrost and other than that I've had the GE tubes in.  I'm completely happy with the sound with the GE tubes and am enjoying music like before wife, kids and subsequent volume restrictions.

congrats! that should shoo away the upgrade bug for a while. :)

what exactly does the tube do to make you know that it is reached its whatever thousand hours of life expectancy?>

 

if it is indeed 100% the claimed hours,it wouldbe at least a year or too.. but i have had my lyr for a good year, a lot of listening, but certainly not a regular 10 hours a day every day...some days it is 16 hours a day,some zero for sure.
