^^ If you're not looking at the lyr2, you should be. If you want to save some money, then you should be looking at my lry1. :D

Exactly what I'm looking at (Lyr2), because I have no children to sell so as to afford a Cavalli Liquid Glass...

Thinking about Lyr2. Thought about yours, but the gain switch is critical for me. Or at least I choose to believe so. If you have a decent DAC with pre-outs, the Vali is surprisingly good. Really surprisingly good. It gets 50% +/- listening time for me.

Pha ha ha...just have more kids and you'll be in good shape. I have five. ;)

Is the going rate, 2 kids for a liquid glass?

The ADs with Lyr2 using Siemens Cca tubes, listening to Giorgio by Moroder ----> bliss biggrin.gif.

Truly a 3D soundstage. You feel like you are in the cafe with Giorgio.

I bought the tubes from Upscale Audio. The tubes are platinum graded.

The one negative of this tube is the weak bass. But the 3D soundstage more than makes up for that.

This is what ADs are for!

Very interesting, I am looking for tubes for my lyr. Very expensive tubes though....

The telefunkens are some of the best that I've heard with the AD. 

post #7539 of 8339

Yes. I have the Telefunkens too. They are one of the all-round best sounding tubes, I have, for the AD. When I need more bass on some of my music, I switch to the Telefunkens.

I have some National 6922 that are nice with the Lyr 2, a big soundstage without sacrificing bass. Amperex Bugle Boys for the bigger budget tube options are excellent all around, good tonality and soundstage, punchy bottom end. Green hornets didn't do too well, they were too microphonic.

From what I have gleaned from the different forums on the Lyr and the alpha dogs, a moderate priced tube from upscale audio was the gold lion E88CC/ 6922,. I think they go for 52 dollars, if you get the platinum grade. Furthermore you should get them paired. I will be getting a set of these soon as well as a set of the telefunken's. Please have a good nite.

I tried several tubes in my Lyr driving Alpha Dogs, including Amperex White Labels, Telefunkens and GE JANs.  The ones I ended up liking the most and keeping in were Genelex Gold Lions.  YMMV.

I might get a pair of these in platinum next purchase. I don't want to spend >$100 on tubes, the audio change is so minuscule. I tried two separate tubes to see if I could even tell a different from stock and orange globes and it is VERY small.

How does Lyr compare to Pan Am?

From my experience, Pan Am starts distorting sound at 3:00 o'clock, and when you boost LF (<50Hz) distortion gets even bigger (the signal it-self is far from being clipped, i.e. max -3dB). I was thinking if it was Alpha Dogs issue (I though maybe I burned them), but no it isn't. I know that because at home I connected them to my Behringer, and I got to way higher volumes than I can get on Pan Am, and no distortion whatsoever.

So, how does it go with Lyr? If you throw 100% power on Alpha Dogs will you get distortion? or will it burn Alphas? or you just loose hearing?

You will blow your eardrums and your headphones, not sure which will go first...
