Do you have any orange globe a frames
post #678 of 10856

I think I still have a couple of pairs, I'll check through.   I've gotten them all separated out into boxes by type, but haven't listed out exactly which of each I have yet.   I know I have a bunch of mid-60s Bugle Boys and I know I have OGs, just don't recall if they were A Frame.

 

I will let you know.

To say the least.   I've finally inventoried all of my Lyr-compatible tubes.    1131 of them, to be exact.     :D

 

I really need to get going on selling them, just haven't had a lot of free time lately.

I'm very much interested in what's in your "to sell" stash... ;)

I hope you have Schiiitloads of Amperex OG`s that are GAC coded with single support leg, so Lyr & Aune T1 owners could be happy! ;P Interested of one pair.

Hey guys,

 

I tend to lurk this site more than anything, but I'm interested in tube rolling my Lyr.

 

I was wondering if someone could give me some advice for a relatively inexpensive tube that will meet my preferred sound signature.

 

My main phones are the ATH-AD2000x and the HE-500. I love the mid-forwardness of the 2000x because they capture the bite of the electric guitar. 

 

Which set of tubes would best emphasize the mid-range (for the HE-500 and other phones that aren't as forward)? I'm not sure if my question is stupid, but I will lurk this thread and try to compile information that seems to suit my wants.

There is considerable consensus in this forum that the early Amperex Orange Globes are the ones to get. These would be the tubes with a halo getter. The later ones, with an A-frame getter, haven't gotten quite as much love here.....

Unless you have the HD650's, then the Amperex early-70's Orange A-frames are perhaps the better choice, IMO.

 

But I do agree that the OG halos sound VERY good with the HE500's.

 

Cheers! :beerchug:

I'm hoping for some suggestions from those who have used the lyr with the hd800. I realize that the lyr may not be the absolute best pairing for the hd800 but it's what I have for now. Currently, I have a pair of 68' Orange Globes in the lyr and I have not yet received the hd800. 

 

Just wondering if someone has found a set of tubes that seem to have good synergy with the hd800.

 

thanks...

The 60s halo OG/Lyr/HD800 combo isn't bad. Forward mids and snappy transients. Suffers only slightly in the micro detail.

Sorry Guys, been busy with rehearsals this past week and not checking in so much.

For the HD800, the best I've heard (again, my ears, my preferences, classical music only) - Siemens & Halske 6922 CCa Grey Plates and Amperex 6922 Pinched Waists. To my ears, these are the pinnacle, 10/10 in my personal ratings, but good luck finding them and kiss your wallet goodbye if you do find them.

Next, I would say that all of the following are superb (9/10 in my system - not in any particular order, except that I am very partial to the USN-CEP's):

Amperex USN-CEP
Telefunken E88CC
Tesla E88CC Gold Pins (excellent bargain)
Valvo E88CC, both Red Label Gold Pin and plain Gold Pin versions (also excellent bargains)
Amperex Bugle Boy 6DJ8 1959 D-Getters

Next, the La Radiotechnique (RTC) tubes, both Heerlen and Suresnes, France versions are very good; 8/10 in my rating system.

YMMV
