post #3811 of 6045

I'm thinking of upgrading to a Schiit amp with a pre-out option to connect to my desktop speakers. I see that the Asgard 2 states that it has a preamp output connection, what about asgard 1 or the Lyr?

Lyr and Asgard 2 (not the first one) have preamp outs.

This man never said a truer word. I have three pairs of tubes coming a week after getting the Lyr. Another head-fier has confessed to amassing a tube supply before getting a Lyr. The next stage of madness is only buying the best tubes and then not using them for fear of wearing them out. Help!

 

And I've got it bad - the memory has come back to me of the valves glowing happily in the family radiogram in the 1950s, There is nothing left between me and a credit card exhausted by tubes...is this a recognized addiction?

Tubeitis is the name of the addiction 😄. I cured myself by getting the Mjolnir !

The wallet worries of you headphone amp tube rollers are hilarious. Try it with speaker amps-- NOS rectifiers and pairs of input tubes (but you need at least three matched in case one fails), matched quads of power tubes (but you need to buy a matched sextet in case one fails), then you still "hope" you like the tubes you're buying. It's a rough deal.

I try to sell a few as I get them back into working order. Of course I just go out and buy more at that point. Right now I have only three. 

 

 

 

Have not photographed the 1050 much as it's still being restored.

Amplifiers for boxes which, when placed in a room, emit sound that may closely resemble music, while at the same time creating painful room interaction resonances.

Thankfully, the "rooms" our headphones play in don't have this problem.

^^ Why thank you sir!! :biggrin: That pic of the 1280 doesn't do it justice. It's a stunning piece of gear in person. To me, these old receivers just seem to have a soul to them. Man, do they make some beautiful music. And will drive anything on the planet including the he-6 with aplomb.
