Give me a break, sceleratus! But thanks! The expression 'tube-rolling' was already troubling my composure. :beerchug:

You couldn't pay me to go back to a CD player. Computer playback is the way to go if you ask me. I recently got all my SACDs ripped with a PS3 and have discs out of my life for good. I say good riddance!

Mac user.....

Audirvana for iTunes integration.:smile:

Amarra sounds a tad better, but you can't beat the Audirvana tiny iTunes proxy files for flac.  (IMO)

Schiit Gungnir

The last thing to touch a CD was XLD

All vinyl has been ripped to flac using a MOTO Microbook finessed with ClickRepair.

Everything is backed up to 3T Pegasus R4 RAID 5.   And a 1T portable.
 
Get a Schiit Gungnir your and call it your CD transport.  Done

Thank you so much, folks. I have also e-mailed Schiit who were very helpful. The Lyr is on its way! An interesting thing to me in this thread is the sheer number of people who have LOTS of equipment - there are practically complete collections of, er, Schiit out there... I'll let you know how it goes. Burn-in time advice, anyone?

 

What tubes are you planning to use with the lyr? The sound will be more effected by the tubes than burn in.

I also have the 7030 and agree it's a great value. I'm curious what advantage a $300-500 + player would give you. I feel like I get great, clean, neutral sound.

I took Nick's advice and ordered the NOS Tungsram ECC85 tubes with the unit. That means absolutely nothing to me - yet. I am hanging about here and hoping to learn...

Purchased an Asfard 2 and Modi, not sure why I thought the Asgard would be huge and the Modi tiny. The Modi is smaller than I expected and the Asgard not as large, and dare I day the Modi looks just so... Cute on top of the Asgard. Such quality from a tiny DAC.

I think its an improvement from my old e7/e9, haven't heard it long enough to say for sure but just having 24/96 playback is a huge plus.

I think that you will reach that point of dismissing returns and in some cases just a different sonic “flavor“ of sound. I think that the only point with a more expensive unit is to add more features like the OPPO.

+1.  I tried my friend's Lyr with JJ tubes... HATED it. Afterwards, my friend got some Russion NOS tubes... better. Then he got his hands on some Amperex Orange Globes... yummmmmmm

^^agree with this. I did the Oppo 103 so I could also replace my blu-ray player that was acting up.  really like the fact that it can be networked, read thumb drives, and be controlled by my android devices etc.
