Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers - Page 83

post #1231 of 10862

I'm truly sorry you got a bad tube, Charles.  Be patient but persistent, and I do hope he'll resolve the issue satisfactorily.  I can only echo what Zuckfun said.

They also work pretty well with the HD 600, although I think I'd want something not as warm as the OGs for that one since it's a fairly warm signature already. I imagine they wouldn't be the best for the HD 650, but I don't have experience with that specific can and the Lyr (hope to soon, though).

Thanks so much. Probably going to go with some Orange Globes for my K702

Hello guys!

Didn't find info on a quick read on the old tread...

Maybe you could save me some time helping me here.

 

I have bifrost/lyr and I'm looking for new tube set.

After 2 1/2 month waiting time because the product was back order, I just received my LCD-2 Vegan version from Audeze!

I'm literally BLOWN AWAY.

Best expense ever. I can't take them of my head.

 

But like a lot of people here, I was looking to get the best from it :)

 

Could you please give me your impression on what tube set I should get if I want maximum bass impact?

I would say I love soundstage and separation facts, but i'm really a ''bass-head''.

 

Thanks!

How do you find the old reflectors?

post #1237 of 10862

So after giving both my stock GE tubes and my Voskhod 75' VRockets ample time to burn in, I have to say I prefer the GE tubes. The Voskhods have great dynamics, but they're a little too dark for my tastes. I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm looking for something detailed, with a great soundstage, and that liquidy tube feel. Any suggestions?

Amperex Bugle Boys - warm, detailed with a great soundstage - a little more "tubey" than the Orange Globes.

+1.  A relatively inexpensive option.  Flove my 1961 Straight Man BBs.

I'm finding on local auctions but it becoming harder.

Got a question for you guys.  I recently went through every page on this thread and the old Lyr rolling thread. I decided to acquire some Bugle Boys and Orange Globes for my first Lyr tube rolling experience. 

 

I just recently finished giving both sets a burn in of about 48 hours thus far.

 

I have the Lyr paired with a modi and LCD-2s. On first listen to the Bugle Boys after burn-in I noticed what most describe as attributes for the Bugle Boys; however, I found they really lacked the punch I experienced with the stock tubes. The mids sounded flat  but quite warm, and the low end got flabby and lazy compared to stock.  I found very similar true for the Orange Globes. I got about 4 hours of listening in thus far on both Bugles and OGs. 

 

Do they need more burn-in time? I got them from a highly recommended ebay seller. I get the warmth of the tubes that people love about them, but the overall sound is just boring aside from the natural warmth. Were these not the right tubes for me? I'd love some input on my findings, advice, or other tube recommendations that I can research further. I really want something that will bring me the real tubey sound while still being emphatic, like the stocks.

Bugle Boys are different and has different sound.

I have several - one sounds flat another has the good soundstage with warmth enjoing sound.

Do you have any codes on tubes like GAE, GAC, GAG?

Sure, here is what I have on hand at the moment.

 

Amperex Bugle Boy 6DJ8 ECC88 O-Getter

 

That's about what I know off the top of my head, would I find the codes you are referring to somewhere physically on the tubes?

Yes, sure, that codes are physically on the tube. Please look on the tube carefully.

I just looked at the tube physcially, previous was from memory, the only screen printing or etching I see aside from what I have already stated is "632".
