    Schiit Lyr - The tube rolling thread

    Quote: Of all the CCa S&H's I have had which is over 40 + sets I have only had one or two sets extremely microphonic I will say something to twist your noodle a bit since I saw nightflight mentioned me .. I feel special I am still remembered HAHA.  Anyway microphonic tubes may not always be...

    Haha I was messing with ya man being a analog component much like some capacitors that I have seen a change in over time pretty much proven.. I would agree some amount of time on the Audiophile front is prudent.. Now for Preamp tubes same situation we have with the Lyr different tubes really...

    With Tube amps of all sorts it does not matter if you run them with lower voltage in the Lyr's case that would be 6.3V now it may not sound good or it may have no impact the Lorenz Stugarts one of my favorite tubes is I think 7 volts --- A real world example is - I usually manually under bias...

    Quote: YOu are 100% correct on these tubes the Simens E88CC's made in the 70's are horrid sounding so bad that I have never been able to get them to sound good.. However, I have a set from the early 60's and they are totally different sound similar to the CCa's but without as much 3d...

    Quote:   The differences are in this thread however, hidden and I myself never updated a very old list of tubes. Just an idea because every persons equipment is different. The CCa Simens & Halske have an incredible 3d sound stage with the right equipment sadly they are a tad shy on bass...

    The Siemens E88CC  have tremendous bass but they are vintage tubes if you are after great bass you wll surely either need to change something in your signal chain or start spilling out the cash for Vintage tubes.. The Lorenz Mica's also have tremendous bass if you can find a pair.. Their are...

    Quote: I second that.... and to be point blank on this thread you have to gain respect... some of us rolled from the beginning and went through the learning experience together. We have had nut balls on here claiming the craziest crude rolling is expensive accept it or be happy with what ya...

    Quote: Mike I dont care if he coated them in 24k Gold paper they still are not worth that much I surely myself would not put the E88CC/6922's anywhere neat the Lorenz they are good tubes but not in the same ballpark IMHO they are radically different in sound to the CCa's and the later year...

    Quote: Well over biasing a tube or under biasing is done all the time.. That is one of the interesting things about the PC88 Stuggart Lorenz is the Lyr only is putting out 6.3 so they are under biased and are one of the best sounding tubes yet that we have found since we started tube...

    Quote: Those Siemen's PCC88's are probablty the same tube as the Telefuken PCC88 may be may not but if they are then yes they do sound good.. I like the Telefuken PCC88's I have noticed with my new ED 9 Ultrasones that tube rolling is radically different than the LCD's and my other phones...

    On the RCA 6CG7s :  I have not given them a fair shake yet but I only had some Large O getter Amperex Holland's in before I put these in and as soon as I did I noticed several traits one was just a tad of recessed high's with my equipment I also noticed I had to crank up the Lyr a bit I have not...
