    microphonics will depend on the tube.
    i tried a lot of different tubes, and i only had microphics a couple of times

    Will the Modi be fine with the Lyr or is the Bifrost worth the $520 upgrade (usb + uber). 
     
    I want the Lyr mostly because of its power and the microphonics of the vali kind of get annoying. Everytime I sneeze, open a can of pop, even move the cable it rings). I could just find good tubes that do not have microphonics. I do like tubes though and enjoy a warmer sound and not so bright

    As it was already microphonic depends on the tube so getting Lyr is not guarantee to avoid it.
    I never heard Modi so can't comment but I prefer DacMagic Plus over Bifrost Uber, just personal preference

    The only bad micro phonics I had with my Lyr were some Green Hornet tubes.  They rang when I typed, it was truly amazing.  ka ting, ting ting, ka tinggg... 
     
    FWIW, I have a Lyr 2 and it is a big step up with significantly more resolution and a much larger sound stage.

    Asgard 2 and Uberfrost are a great pairing. I also don't have to deal with tube microphonics :p

    Any chance the Lyr2 is coming to the SF Bay meet?

    Agreed. Still, I'm finally getting fascinated by tubes. That freakin' Vali is a gateway drug I tell ya!

    Hey guys, I just sent my MadDogs in for the upgrade to AlphaDogs, yesterday!!! I've been waiting since early December so I was so excited when the upgrade notice finally arrived. However, I was blown away by Dan and the MrSpeakers crew in that they turned my headphones around the same day they arrived in San Diego!!! Amazing!!! Can't wait to hear them next Tuesday!!! Yeah!!!!

    How does the Lyr 2 compare to the Asgard 2? I think I might upgrade the vali in the future because of it's microphonics and more power to drive orthos. I feel the asgard will be just fine and -$200 than the lyr 2.

    Is the Project Ember good with this and I could get JJ 12AU7 tubes from thetubestore for $25. Also $100 cheaper than the lyr

    But the Lyr is sexy [​IMG]
