My Bifrost has arrived. I can't listen to until after the work and gym. 7 more hours. smile.gif

See my official Asgard 2 beta test:

I listened to the Bifrost -- > Asgard --- > Grado SR225 setup last night. I am very used to the Asgard and SR225 sound. The Bifrost clearly out-classed my older X-Fi Fatality sound card. The audio has clearer/deeper bass, clearer treble, and a much smoother sound than the sound card. Music also is also perceived as wider in the headphones and less grainy than the soundcard. This is definitely an excellent quality product. I support Schiit. I also can't wait to hear some other amps, DACs, and headphones. This is a great hobby. happy_face1.gif

Well my Lyr is sitting in my truck waiting for me to finish work for the day.  6 business day from California to NW Ontario via USPS.  I'm impressed.  I'm very much looking forward to firing this baby up.  bigsmile_face.gif

Sweet!  What tubes will you be starting out with?

It came with 6BQ7A which I'm listening to right now on my HD600s.  My wallet had a lock put on it,biggrin.gif so I'm going to give these a good go first.  We'll definitely see how these perform after some good run time on them.  The rolling thread is calling me though.

If you want to just get some great tubes without breaking the bank, just look up Mercedesman6572 on ebay and buy some Amperex Bugle Boys.  You pay around $80 or less for a pair of gently used tubes, they'll sound terrific, and you can avoid the Tube Rolling thread altogether...

 

Here, these will do nicely:

Of course, you're always welcome in the rolling thread, but be warned, tube rolling is a sickness!  Save yourself!  biggrin.gif  wink_face.gif

Thanks for the suggestion.  I'm still going to have to wait a bit.  The Lyr was already a jump up from my original budget of going with the Asgard 2.  Just need to put some time between this purchase and my next.  Gotta reload my mad money fund.  biggrin.gif

Totally understandable.

 

If the time comes that money is there, and you want to use the one shot/one kill approach, just look up Mercedesman and see if he has Amperex Bugle Boys or Amperex Orange Globes.  Otherwise, there's help in the rolling thread.

Thanks again.  That might be just the way I'll go.

That was good advise he gave you, and those were good suggestions on a couple good sounding tubes.

 

I will say it again, stay out of the tube rolling thread unless you are the non-compulsive type. It's a slippery slope that sucks you in.............

This.

 

I have 15 pair of tubes and still not happy.

Then it's not the amp or tubes.  It's your preference or unreasonable expectations.
