Just sold my Asgard (v1) today. Man, parting with your stuff is hard. Especially if you've had nothing but good experiences with said stuff. Not parting with any of my other Schiit anytime soon. Just too difficult. frown.gif

It's like when lumber jacks put the logs in the water and 2 of them get ontop and try to make the other fall off, but it's done with tubes.

 

Ahhh! HAha! just kidding...

 

It's just trying out new tubes in your gear, different tubes, older tubes etc...

 

A stupid term if you ask me.

Sometimes a manufacturer will make the design so you can't swap different kinds of tubes, only the same kind for instance if it used 12AX7AU you could only use other 12AX&AU tubes. Some of the Schiit stuff was non-rollable at first.

It does seem a little strange, until you start tube rolling yourself. You learn to appreciate that roll you've gotta do.

I get it, I am in the audio biz and have changed tubes a pretty fair amount of time over the years.  It's still a stupid term in my opinion...

Is it worth to already change it in my upcoming lyr?

if yes, which?

Exactly.  Often, to remove tubes, you have to gently rock them back and forth from their sockets.  So, you're rolling them.

Yes, check the thread above.

The Lyr ships with tubes which are fine. They give a good sound whilst the amp is breaking in. Some people stick with those tubes, as they are perfectly happy with the sound.

Other people like to roll the tubes to get a different sound.

I have a matched pair of Siemens E288CC in my Lyr. Rather expensive... But what a sound!

The term "tube rollng" is a misnomer. The correct term is wallet rolling.tongue.gif

Hey guys, Im back with another question.

 

Basically I have around $600 to spend on some gear. The way I see it I have 2 choices, since Id like to stick with Schiit gear. Option one is to buy an Asgard 2 and a Bifrost, then use them with my current HD558s for all my listening. Option two is to buy a Magni and Modi, then spend the remaining money on a better set of headphones like some Mad Dogs or some SRH-940s.

 

I guess what Im wondering is which do you think would be a better option? Im fully open to other opinions, so please tell me what you think.
