Hi Jason,

Now that Lyr3 has been replaced by Lyr+, is there any plan to upgrade the Jotunheim 2 to 3?

An instrumental. I'm sure you didn't recognise that.
Sure I do - from Marcel Marceau's Greatest Hits, n'est-ce pas?
Do you remember Woody Allen's famous line, "“If there is reincarnation, I'd like to come back as Warren Beatty's fingertips.”?

I'd rather come back as Serge Gainsbourg's...
Not me - don't wanna be yellow and smell of used Gauloises.
Au revoir, mes amis...

Jason,

Is there a chance for a Saga++? Basically Lyr+ without the headphone amp? Or will it be so close in cost/development that it doesn't make sense?

Really like the 2 inputs, remote and the ability to run sans tube. Don't need to headphone amp.

Am I right in saying Lyr+ is a tube gain stage while Saga+ is just a buffer?

So Lyr+ gives a bit more tube flavor?

And sometimes, it's fun to listen to total nonsense, like this acid trip inspired piece by Donovan, covered by Judy Collins.

<snip>
What about a real classic that I played way too often back when:

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head
Feed your head

Music is based on Bolero of course but a powerful song.😉

I haven't heard the Lyr+ but I have both the Saga+ and a Lyr 3 and the Lyr sounds more tubey and substantially better when driving speakers to my ears.

TextAlice's Adventures in Wonderland at Wikisource
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 English novel by Lewis Carroll. It details the story of a young girl named Alice who falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as an example of the literary nonsense genre. The artist John Tenniel provided 42 wood engraved illustrations for the book.
It received positive reviews upon release and is now one of the best-known works of Victorian literature; its narrative, structure, characters and imagery have had widespread influence on popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.[1][2] It is credited as helping end an era of didacticism in children's literature, inaugurating a new era in which writing for children aimed to "delight or entertain".[3] The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children.[4] The titular character Alice shares her given name with Alice Liddell, a girl Carroll knew.
The book has never been out of print and has been translated into 174 languages. Its legacy covers adaptations for screen, radio, art, ballet, opera, musicals, theme parks, board games and video games.[5] Carroll published a sequel in 1871 entitled Through the Looking-Glass and a shortened version for young children, The Nursery "Alice", in 1890.

It is an early example of Fantasy. Note the phrase "falls through a rabbit hole." A phrase often used on here. :ksc75smile: More simply put, "down the rabbit hole."


For Slick, "White Rabbit" "is about following your curiosity. The White Rabbit is your curiosity."[14] For her and others in the 1960s, drugs were a part of mind expansion and social experimentation. With its enigmatic lyrics, "White Rabbit" became one of the first songs to sneak drug references past censors on the radio. Even Marty Balin, Slick's eventual rival in Jefferson Airplane, regarded the song as a "masterpiece". In interviews, Slick has related that Alice in Wonderland was often read to her as a child and remained a vivid memory well into her adulthood.[5]

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Slick mentioned that, in addition to Alice in Wonderland, her other inspiration for the song was Ravel's Boléro. Like Boléro, "White Rabbit" is essentially one long crescendo. The music combined with the song's lyrics strongly suggests the sensory distortions experienced with hallucinogens, and the song was later used in pop culture to imply or accompany just such a state.[15]
