People laugh when hearing I have 30K invested in audio. Of course, new your NWO was about 1/3 of my total investment, but I'm not laughing.
It's a hobby that has paid off with hours of enjoyment each day. Some guys like boats, which aren't cheap (kinda same $30k investment), but realistically how often can you use a boat if you work? I got hooked in college in the '70s, working in a Stereo shop in Gainesville, FL. Damn that '70 Japanese audio stuff was so damn sexy! But then again so were those UofF co-eds!!!:-)

Bob...are you saying that you remember the 70's? That whole decade is a bit foggy to me. ;)

 

Yes, quality audio is expensive...and so are Harleys. The best things in life aren't cheap, are they? :biggrin:

 

Cheers! :beerchug:

After following this thread for sometime I upgraded my tubes from stock to AMPEREX ORANGE LABEL PQ 6DJ8 / ECC88 a few months back. A veil has been lifted off the music.  I used to find the Lyr too warm but now the sound is perfectly balanced. Mids are clear ,detailed, musical,  Bass is  tight, strong, punchy & highs sound a little better.  Thank you Head-Fi :) 

 

Can anyone recommend Tubes which are even more detailed & have better Sound stage (but not warm, I prefer detailed sound with crisp airy highs)

I enjoy the orange A frames more detailed then most but still keep the sweet sound of the lyr

How do I get the tubes already in the lyr out? Any trick of the trade?

^^ A piece of tape...pull gently and wiggle.

Thanks. I went ahead and ordered tubemonger tube socket saver to assist with my tube rolling journey.
