The Lyr tube rolling thread is a WEALTH of information.  Be sure to check it out.

Forgive me i'm somewhat confused should I try the GE 6BZ7 stock option or spring for the 20 dollar version? thanks

They are the same tubes.  You can order the Lyr with those as the tubes that come with the amp, or you can order them separately.  Either way, you end up with those tubes.

Thanks for clearing that up for me! My Bifrost is scheduled to be delivered this upcoming Wed.:)

Not to be all thread police-y but we should keep the tube discussion in the Lyr tube thread so this discussion doesn't get locked atsmile.gif

I'll be connecting the Bifrost to an E12 until I order the Lyr, I'm wondering what it will sound like? I love my DT990 Pro 250 ohm their just too bright for my taste:(

My replacement A2 is out on the truck for delivery.  The f5 button sure is getting a workout!

Really enjoying my HD650s on the Valhallas. I never thought these could sound that great in the mids no matter what amp I chose. I had tried several SS amps until I read that this tube amp was more neutral and not as "tubey" as others. I've got zero interest in tube rolling and will be ordering a back up set of tubes from these guys soon. Dope schiit, exactly what I needed for these cans, which I had almost written off as dark-sounding and never thought the could improve in that area of the spectrum.

I think there are some mods around here to lift that terrible Sennheiser veil.

The GE's really need 30-60 minutes to sound their best.  Really, you don't need to tube roll and just enjoy the Lyr.  But, this is Head-Fi and that wouldn't be any fun! very_evil_smiley.gif

 

AHA! WTF. I thought I was nuts! I've found that even broken in tubes can take a day to get sweet. Maybe I'm too critical.

Wow, that's an old post when I was a Lyr newbie.  After breaking in the tubes, usually 30-50 hours or so, I definitely give them time to warm up.  Now favouring the Amperex Orange Globe and pretty much let the Lyr run for a couple of hours before critical listening. I don't hear much of a difference after a couple of hours.

I've found that if you "pop" off the ear pads and remove the foam insert that covers the driver, the "veil" is lifted. Of course, that leaves the drivers vulnerable to damage. This weekend, I replaced the foam inserts with nylon. I bought some cheap "knee-highs", placed the ear pads in the nylon, popped them back in place, then cut away the excess. Easy and inexpensive ($3) mod. Took about five minutes.
