Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers - Page 148

post #2206 of 10862

Found a 1975 grey plate single wire voskhod on ebay today, had to buy a 72, 73 and 77 along with it. Kind of bummed I can't try it in the Lyr, but I'll try it in the Project Ember and see how it is. I know rb2013 didn't like the seller much, but worse comes to worse I'll get my money back.  I 'm done buying until I get my next Ebay bucks ....

Nice get! He's blocked me, after I posted negative feedback. That was my mistake. I was naive, thinking these Ukrainian, Russian, Moldovan, etc dealers would be honest and not send dead tubes. But I now know you can still get good tubes from them, you just have to test them and consider the 30-40% fails as a cost of doing business.

The '75 you have there is a very good tube, a little different then the plate post version. You can see the curved metal wire holding the getter.

I hope they test well for you.
Good luck!

Last week I mentioned the high pitched noise with my stock tubes. Contacted Schiit and they sent out a new pair immediately. Great customer service! I have to wait until they arrive, could take a while as I live in Germany.

 

The high pitched noise comes and goes. Is it still save to listen with the tubes or can it damage my headphones? Forgot to ask the Schiit customer support.

 

Thanks!

My stock tubes sometimes do that same sound. as far as I know its perfectly safe for your headphones.

Thanks for your response!

 

The thing is, when I switch the tubes, the sound moves from one side to another. I described this to their customer support and they told me that it probably is a bad tube.

Yeah this is not anything to be worried about in terms of headphone damage, just one of the tubes is a bit microphonic which is a just reason for them to send you a new one don't worry.

 

Each tube in the Lyr handles either the right or the left channel so if one tubes emitting a bit of noise, switching its position should naturally switch the noise from one channel too the other.

 

Hopefully you have more luck with your new tubes :beyersmile:

If I remember correctly the front tube is the left channel and rear right.

Yeah just gave my tubes a light tap and confirmed this :biggrin:

I ordered some 80s Voskhods from Crimea a few weeks ago.  Sure wish they would get here soon because I'm in a rolling mood.

Look what just arrived. A perfect pr of '75 Reflektor Silver Shiled SWGP Holy Grails. And a Pair of '75 Voskhod Gray Shield Plate Posts! They tested perfect. Put them in the the Lyr and sound dead quiet - no microphonics. The music sounded glorius!

What a score!

post #2217 of 10862

Has anyone noticed the release of the Lyr 2? I'm most likely very late to the party.
