I'm currently using it with the Modi and I'm not going to make the purchase if it's not a significant upgrade.

 

I've owned both. If you have high quality rips of your music, it will make a very appreciable and worthy improvement. I have the uberfrost now and could never go back.

how'd the tube search turn out matt ??

Very much enjoying a pair of Orange Globes 68' vintage. One tube was a little noisy and I thought I was doomed but it cleared up on it's own. 

 

You?

but they sound pretty good ! was like $50, i think,

I got a pair of Russians that I didn't know a thing about. I gave about $25 they were fantastic. I traded them and regret it to this day.

New forum member here...

 

I'm sporting the Gen1 USB Bifrost and Lyr combo to drive my AKG 701s.  The Gen2/Uber upgrade is something I plan to do sometime soon...

The supplied JJ tubes sounded rather lifeless, and now I find myself bouncing between the gold-pin Teslas and NOS Russian 6H23n-EB that a friend got me as a gift.

Are there any alternatives for valhalla tubes?  If so what are they?

I had a similar issue when I first installed mine.  For whatever reason, Win7 had the zip file flagged for encryption, and therefore the extracted files as well.

I don't think you would have to uninstall xonar. Unknown error? Is that the exact Windows message?
