Are you using stock tubes for the Lyr when pairing with HD600s?

Hehe. In my opinion, yeah, awful. Sold my pair a handful of weeks ago after having them for a year and there's nothing I'm missing with them.

I've used stock tubes on the HD 600 and they sound good. The Orange Globes sound better. Purchasing some Bugle Boys this weekend.

I remain curious as to why the first thing people do with their Vali's is to hit it. "Yep, it rings!" LOL.

I don't know why you'd need to let windows turn off your Modi. I've never seen that. I have my Modi plugged into my laptop constantly, whether it is being used or not. It doesn't make a difference at all. And it's plugged into a 4-way USB hub. No issues with that at all. You may want to check your cable(s). There should be no noise coming from your Modi at all.

Ah, no, Windows' default setting is to turn usb power off to save power. It never actually turned modi off, but that setting was giving me white noise and disabling it fixed that.

And after all the "Lord of the Rings" comments I couldn't help myself ; I had to hit it tongue.gif.

Got my Modi + Valhalla combo last night.  ~5 hours total on it and impressed so far.  What surprises me the most is my Allesandro MS1s are dead silent through it; as my first Tube; I expected hiss with 32Ohms; but sofar it's actually much cleaner than my O2+Odac.

Do you guys leave your tube amps on? I dunno if I should turn the Valhalla off while not in use. Also should I leave some music constantly playing for a few hrs to help burn in or is that not recommended. Thanks smily_headphones1.gif

I always turn my Valhalla off when not in use. Tubes have a finite life and I want to listen to every minute of that life span, not have it wasted by running when I am not using it! As for burn in, tubes do need a bit of time to hit their stride so that isn't a bad idea.

I definitely turn off my Lyr when not in use.  As far as burning in the tubes goes, I just listen to them.  Whatever works for you though.  :beerchug:

for me, if i'm only going to be "away" a short time, an hour or so, or less, i'll leave it on

any more than that, i'll turn it off, i could be wrong, but cycling too much on/off/on/off , doesn't seem like a good idea

Tubes are much stronger than you think.  They have no problem with repeated on/off cycles.  Many of their originally intended uses often called for them to cycle.

 

When not in use, I always turn my tube amps off.  Tubes have a finite life and leaving them on unattended is a bad, bad idea.  For example, if they were to fail or arc, and you aren't there to pull the plug, you can do damage to your amp and headphones.
