    Haven't heard it - would love to - but one advantage the Ember has over the Lyr/2 is that it takes only one tube.  If you get into rolling, pairs of vintage NOS can get pricey.  Also, I believe the Ember can handle a wider variety of tubes (may take an upgrade from the Garage boys, but don't think it's that expensive).  re: the Lyr, one need not blow hundreds (or more, easily) on different tubes.  There are plenty of reasonably priced tubes available.  That said, I love my glass menagerie [​IMG]

    That is indeed a bit of an advantage, I remember with the Sunrise 2 that I bought 8 different valves where with the Lyr I would have been able to buy 4 pairs. It also allowed me to buy some NOS tubes of which our local valve shop had only a single one of left. Was certainly an interesting experience and with the Ember unlike the Sunrise you don't have to worry about manually biasing the tube. The bad thing about the Garage 1217 tube amps are that they are prone to picking up interference. My cellphone and the Sunrise 2 weren't buddies.. I am pretty certain the Lyr 2 is going to be much quieter.

    You can try a Faraday Cage, it's better than wearing a hat made of Aluminum foil and can protect your kit from an EMP attack.
    I used to design sensitive electronic measurement equipment and we had a Faraday Shielded room for testing designs. We were near a major NYC airport and the room was originally used for cutting sheets of plastic which generated huge static fields and RFI, We definitely did not get radio reception inside the room.

    Tin foil hat FTW!!!

    Haven't you been abducted by aliens? Did you ask them if they prefer tubes or SS? My aliens were flying around in a visblik, so I wouldn't trust them on technology.
