Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers - Page 89

post #1321 of 11363

I'd probably be more inclined to try a couple of different types for schiits and giggles if they were easier to get in and out.  the Next SCHIIT product should be a tube puller  :)   Excessive rolling isn't my thing but my Shrek sized hands makes it damn near impossible to get tubes out once they're in :)  . So I'm doing the Ronco thing . SET IT AND FORGET IT.  Jan/Phillips 6922's  for now until I come up with a method to get tubes out without jacking up my fingers.

I'm digging that jaws of life idea.  hehehe  looks like I have some options.   the puller from tubesandmore seems like the way to go. I completely forgot about those things.    Are you using the electro harmonix gizmo?

Just use a piece of packing tape on the top of the tube and wiggle it out. It works like a charm.

Hey all, not sure if this is appropriate, but I figured some of you might want a heads-up about it. If you're still looking for a set of 6922's for your Lyr, I'm looking to sell my pair of Siemens E88CC w/ A-Frame Getters (German made in the early '70s, purchased from UpscaleAudio about 3 weeks ago). They do a pretty stellar job at tightening the bass and clearing up the highs, but can sound harsh if you pair them with a naturally clinical or bright headphone e.g. HD800. I love them with my planars though.

Yes, the tube glove works well. The small end perfectly fits the 6DJ8 variants.

 

I used that glove until about a year ago when I bought some socket savers from Tubemonger. I now like the savers better because they lift the tubes higher and are easier to remove.

Plus they show off all our beautiful glass :D

 

+1 on the Tubemonger savers, and some of the best, most responsive customer service I've ever had.  Their willingness to stand behind their product is laudable.

So, I am very happy!

 

Can anyone recommend some tubes that give a real "classic tube-like" sound ? Seeing as I already have a Mjolnir, I would like something completely opposite of it that I can use in contrast when the mood calls for it.

 

A tube that pairs well with LCDs.

 

Do any of these fit my criteria ?

Someone is only asking $80 for these 3 sets, which sounds like an absolute steal smile.gif

Try the Mullard CV4109s...warm and lush...very "tubey" sounding...but more than a bit expensive (unless you check my for-sale post :p).  I'm not just saying that to hawk tubes but these really are a high-end tube with a great sound.

They are my fall back tube. Very musical, not Uber Detailed nor a wide/deep soundstage but very non fatiguing. Great choice by Schiit as the default supplied tube.

 

I was trying to post this response to the question about the stock GE tubes in an earlier post. My mistake.

+1 Very nice tubes, with best instrument separation what i even heard! I found them best for instrumental jazz, classic rock and classical music. Worst I have ready two pairs:o
