My setup is Foobar2000 -> ASUS Maximus VI Impact Mobo (TOSLINK 24/192) -> Audioengine D1 -> Schiit Lyr (Late 70's Voskhods OR Amperex OG tubes) -> DT880.
I LOVE this setup, but I'd like to try and open the soundstage a bit more. Other than that, I just love to stare at the Lyr.
I'm mainly a Jazz / Classical kinda guy entering into the tube rolling arena. This weekend a friend is going to a radio/hobbyist get together in NC, so I should be able to get a bunch of interesting tubes. I'm finding that the stories behind these tubes are more interesting to me than most of the tubes themselves. Example: the fact I possibly own tubes from the Russian space program and can use them in a headphone amplifier is just downright cool.
Nice setup. Congratulations.
Yeah, you possibly own tubes from the Russian space program...or you own the tubes from a 70s Soviet bloc hair dryer.
