Starting this off with a quick question to @Jason Stoddard...
Jason, which 6SN7 tubes are acceptable for use in the Lyr 3? I have some 6BX7 and 6BL7 tubes which sound very good, but I hesitate to use tubes not endorsed by the manufacturer in their products.
This looks like a very exciting product, and I look forward to receiving mine very soon!
