Oh, and I am totally electronics-blind, so Bottlehead was pretty much out the question. 

 

Whilst I have never heard a Valhalla, one might argue that tube selection might have a whole bunch to do with timbre and soundstage, though I'll be honest with you, I am not 100% sure what timbre actually is, although I imagine it to be similar to tone? 

 

Has anyone heard both Valhalla and Lyr with same chain who cares to comment?  


Just re 'timbre'. "If you gotta ask, you ain't got it". Now that response is attributed to three greats, but the earliest is Fats Waller, in response to the question, "What is swing?". I suspect you have timbre, though! It's the echtythingyness of a sound, when a flute sounds like a flute, a voice like a voice, when all the scraping, blowing, howling, breathing mystery of the musical sound hits you not just as pitch and rhythm data, but as the living thing itself, when you can hear the throat of the singer, the rosin on the bow of the string player and every overtone going, not loosely suggested  in the acoustic space but deeply embedded in the sound itself, with every juicy, tingling, vibrant perfection and imperfection uttered, played or heard as itself. That's timbre IMHO, and headphones are where you bet it best IMVVVHO. Sure, you've got it. That's why you are here.

Sorry to seem erudite. I'll go and stand in the corner and think about what I have done. :smile_phones:

life has tougher choices than deciding which schiit to go for next with a very constrained budget :( my magni will have to stay longer i guess

Lyr gives you the added bonus of tube rolling. Unfortunately, it gives the added cash burden of being skint for about 6 months, as you scour eBay for everything you have read about in the tube rolling threads.
