    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Only available from a very old electronics shoppe in Toronto. It's located in a secret room in the basement of an even older bakery on Yonge St. ... not at the corner of Danforth & Pape, as many have discovered much to their chagrin. Should you complete this quest, and if you ask nicely, you...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Heretic! ... ;-) Really wanna pi$$ off Cardinal Richelieu (I think his nom de guerre might be Bill Erb): snag a pair of Tesla ECC88s (not the overpriced E88CCs), if AC hasn't convinced you already. He may be a good source, in fact. Just remember: ears/brains/rigs all vary. Rangy out.

    I saw him at the latest Bilderberg Group meeting and gave him the Evil Eye.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    I double-checked my eBay purchase history: $60 it was ($45 + $15 shipping, IIRC, which was totally worth it given the speed of delivery). Now shipping is FREE! LOL.

    Total Russian crap. Wouldn't install them in a failing Chinese space station.

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    I don't have a clear picture of your rig, but this reminded me off a strange problem I was having. I'll try to keep it pithy. My Bifrost is one of two audio devices in my PC. It is not the default device, but it is the selected output in foobar2000. My default device feeds an integrated amp...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Really liked 'em; so much I bought another four from the same seller. Since I redid my Fidelizer config after installing 8.1 (now Audiophile / Audio Render), I need to listen to them again, plus burn-in the others. I've only listened to one pair so far. My recollection mirrors yours in terms...

    Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Ladies, ladies, you do know the Russkies still stick tubes in some of their aircraft, right? I think a little Ukraine PS/USPS rough ride is like basic training in tube boot camp. That said, I was a little surprised to pick up a pair from Serbia in a very basic padded envelope. Tubes were...

    <edit> Good luck with that whole WC thing. I admit to being ashamed of and embarrassed for the US team's inability to qualify. Maybe we'll get England vs. Serbia in the final. I usually root for both, so I'd be good either way. Back to tubes...

    Mission: Replace the HiFiMAN ear pads with other brand ear pads

    Ran a few songs through my HE-5LE with leather Ori pads, then the same with the micro suede. And this is why I bought these pads. After modding the HE-5LE, they are my detail KING cans. Mids/upper mids can get a bit tiresome after a while, and they seem to lack weight in the low end. These...

    I'm sorry, but we'll need documentary evidence (photos and/or video)... preferably of both holding pairs of your favorite... sorry, BEST.... wait... no.... right: FAVORITE tubes. Otherwise, this is all hearsay, which is subject to banning.

    That's one reason I'll soon have four pairs of those Foton 6N3Ps. Hey! Don't discount numerology. Take it from someone married to a Mila Vila :-)

    You'd be better off with 4 1966 Fotons @ $25. Just sayin' ;-) ..... Oh wait! I meant you'd be better off buying my mid-70s Voskhod Rockets. Yeah, that's the ticket!

    Pretty sure the new Head-Fi site broke the table. It was there, but didn't format properly (due to transition?). Anyway, try this, which is basically the same: http://www.just-hifi.com/Schiit-Lyr-Lyr-2-Tube-Compatibility-List_10054723.html

    Probably(?) Foton, then, esp. if the tube type is inside the rhombus. Do you have a pic with the symbol? Ah, I see the type printed there. No clue base on that photo...
