    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Quote: If you're going with the silicone o-ring dampers, you probably won't be able to get 2 o-rings on each tube without socket savers.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Quote: Are you using dampers?  I just switched back to my Orange Globes, but decided to try them without dampers for the first time.  Turns out one of the tubes is very microphonic with a static sound that doesn't go away without dampers.  The herbies are nice, but expensive.  Why not try...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Quote:   I second this.  HUGE improvement.  I'm currently burning in Voskhod silver shield '79s and have about 45-50 hours so far, and the Orange Globes are still noticeably better to my ears.  I purchased the Voskhods recently because of the hype and low price, but honestly once I heard...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    I love my '68 Orange Globes with the HE-500.  It definitely has a warm, tube-y sound.

    Quote:   OGs and Voskhod are the only tubes I have heard so far on my Lyr, so I was waiting for others to chime in with recommendations.  Are there any particular years that sound best?

    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    I was lucky enough to get my first NOS tubes from HK_sends to begin my tube rolling journey.  (Very generous fellow by the way, give him your business...)  Here are my impressions, which should admittedly be taken with a grain of salt as my whole chain is a brand new experience for me, from the...

    THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD

    As soon as I saw the Pier One Imports bag I knew what was coming.  I thought they had sold out of these years ago; I will have to see if I can track one down.

    Grado modders go Magnum

    My magnum drivers came in today and after what is likely to be the ugliest soldering job out there, I am giving them their first listen.  I had botched my sr-80i drivers when I tried to transfer them to Cabillas' cups earlier this year, so my hands were trembling with fear during the entire...

    Symphones Magnum upgrade for Grado SR325 and Alessandro MS2

    That is an interesting observation.  Weren't the magnums always designed with bowls in mind?   Quote:

    Now THAT is the vintage look Grado should go with stock.  Simply gorgeous.   Quote:

    Grado modders go Magnum

    Do the magnum drivers fit just as effortlessly into Cabillas' cups as the grado drivers?

    SR60-Mod part II
