I can confirm Lyr is 6.3v AC, tested with multi-meter.
So just to clarify, i need to wire heater pins 4 and 5 on the tube together, and connect to either 4 or 5 in the socket, lets say i choose 4, then i need to connect pin 9 (heater center tap) to the remaining pin 5 in the socket.
And this would have the tube heaters running in parallel at 6.3v?
I am aware of other parameters being different, like anode voltage is 250v in E80CC vs 100v in E88CC, but i'm currently using ECC85 which is also 250v and they're the best tubes i've ever heard in Lyr, they're closer in spec to E80CC than they are to E88CC, ECC85 are my best sounding tubes by far.
For now i'm wanting to learn how to get them pin compatible with Lyr so i don't blow it up before i complicate things with other parameters.
Everyone's gotta learn somewhere right? And i'm hoping i'm being responsible by seeking guidance as i do things instead of leaping in feet first and blowing Schiit up (pun intended)
I do plan on doing a whole lot of reading as well as building many hobby kits to get a better understanding of electronics, in the end i'm hoping to build my own headphone amp and possibly even a DAC, would give me a real sense of achievement.
Many thanks for everyones input, you are wonderful guys
