Glad to hear you have it working.  Listen to the music now.  :dt880smile:

Both channels now.  Its good, very good.

 

Oh and reports were not exaggerated - it does run pretty hot, with a warm volume dial.

That's all the heat that would otherwise be inside of your Lyr, aluminum is an excellent heatsink. Enjoy the new toy! :beerchug:

What are your music and sonic preferences?

Mostly old rock/pop and jazz, little bit of classical on occasion.

for that Reflector 74 silver SWGP, it's great with the HD800.

I have that tube, I highly recommend it.

So one of my stock GEs has developed some pretty annoying microphonics after about 150 hours of use. looking to buy a matched pair today or tomorrow.

 

Looking for as cheap as possible for tubes that will be an upgrade. I have Alpha Dogs and listen to a broadrange of music from classical to EDM to melodic hardcore.

 

Any suggestions guys on specific tubes or where to get them from which is AUS friendly in terms of shipping?

Yeah I saw that seller, he was on the top of my list currently, might have to grab a pair. Right channel tube keeps tinging every couple of minutes.

Many people consider Heerlen, Holland-made Amperex Bugle Boys and Orange Globes to be very nice upgrades over the GE's. And they can often be found for not much money.

Thanks for the info, will have to check them out. Do you know of any reputable sellers of them?

Ive found OGs so hard to find of late, people must be grabbing them up like crazy (at least in NOS and reasonably priced, seeing some go for +70$ for a pair, I remember they were sub 30$ not even a year ago) . Still lots of BB though with reasonable prices.

You may be better off ordering from Asia since they will get there faster.

Those should be the same as orange globes, I am pretty sure they are 1967.

 

These would be the same as bugle boys -

Very frankly, over the last several years, I have purchased over 700 tubes from various eBay vendors, and have had only had a handful of problems. I check "Seller Information" in the upper right-hand corner, and as long as the percentage is over 98%, and the number of transactions is over 500, I usually do not hesitate. And again, my experience has been very positive.
