These were made by Siemens in their Halske factory, Munich, in October, 1959, and relabeled and packaged by CBS in 1961. The fact that CBS put their name on these is immaterial. These are Siemens ECC88 and putting a different label on them doesn't change anything. :)

I have both, and I also agree, the halo (1960s) is slightly better. Although my A-frames haven't been burnt in yet, they're still fairly new. But at the moment, the halo getter is better.

I updated my original post with with the A-Frame:

High extension without being sibilant, a nice, deep, and tight bass without being overpowering. Very well balanced, and euphonic sound. Its not the most neutral, but I find it colors the sound in the right way.

 

Amperex OGs (A-Frame, 1973):

Very very similar to the 1969 OGs, however I found the Halo-Getter has a deeper bass extension than the A-Frames. The A-Frames have not been burnt in yet though.

Or rather the Munich factory of Siemens & Halske.

I bought the same Siemens 6DJ8's but branded as RCA. Sometimes you can find some bargains among rebranded tubes like this.

 

I found I generally preferred the 6DJ8 over 6922 and these are great tubes.

About to purchase the Lyr, tried to look over the threads but that is a lot of information and basically sounds like i am reading code!, so ill just ask quickly:

 

Is it recommend to spend the extra bit on the second tube  option when purchasing the lyr to the nos tungsram ecc85?, or is it just a really personal preference sort of question and i wont know unless i try them?

 

Thanks.

It is a personal preference and you won't know until you try. That said, the general consensus is the tubes that Schiit sells won't provide the full potential the Lyr is capable of.

If you are like me, and keep wondering how much better could it get and are always looking to upgrade to something else, then I would probably pass as the upgrade bug will bite you pretty quick.  But if you are happy with what you have, doubt you'll do much rolling, then I'd say go for the upgraded tubes from Schiit.

I just bought an open box stock Lyr from Audio Advisor. My left channel is giving me a noise like a ringing in my ear, Changing the volume doesn't change the volume of the ringing. Is there anyway to remedy this? I have the stock GE tubes and was looking to upgrade, but I was hoping to give my wallet a break first.

have you tried switching the tubes to see if the sound follows the tubes ? if you know it is the tubes, replacements can be had relatively cheaply, if its the amp, i'd call audio advisor
