I have used these 8pc 9pin Gold Vintage Tube Socket Saver 6DJ8 12AX7 ECC83 12AU7 ECC82 6922 AMP in my Lyr and they work well. For the best results stack two of them together, insert your tube, then remove the bottom socket. This maintains the pin alignment of the socket after tube insertion. I use these mainly to elevate the tubes 3/4" or so above the Lyr PC tube socket which makes the amp chassis run cooler, tempwise. It also makes tube removal much easier as there is "more" tube to grab. They fit the chassis socket snugly, however the tube and socket saver often come out together, which for me isn't a problem. YMMV, satwilson
I have a problem with the Lyr, maybe somebody knows what the reason is.
When listening I'm hearing a very high pitched noise. Sounds a little bit like the sound of a tinnitus. I'm listening with the stock tubes and already switched them. Then the high pitched noise moved from the left speaker to the right.
Is there something wrong with one tube?
@ RB2013, Thanks for the peek preview, really looking forward to the complete lowdown! I am starting to get a sense of what tubes work best for different headphones/ DAC's based on our personal sound preferences. Your more detailed analysis of the highly regarded PW in your system/HD800's was very interesting. Certainly a "niche" tube for you, but one that fills that "niche" in spades. That being said I am really interested in the HG Rusky VS the Tele. Your HD800's abundance of detail may not pair well with the Tele's incredible "detail". For my warmer, less detailed, modded T50RP's, the Tele's are awesome. Thanks for taking the time and spending the $$$$ to provide some great insight into some great tubes. waiting.......
