So far, Bugle boy tube (1960) and orangle label a frame sounds good.  It's first for me to get tube instrument so it sounds warm and tubby.
with my hd800, it sounds more alive.  I felt more body. 
with asgard I did really felt asgard has power, with Valhalla I felt sudden power from the amp.  That doesn't mean Asgard is bad, I love this amp, therefore I can't sell it.
Also, Asgard loves my lcd2.  Maybe near future I'll just get the Lyr.

Hi Gustav,
(I have to address you as that with your screen name)

Please don't misunderstand.  My knowledge and experience with the Valhalla is Zero.
The Valhalla is probably a great amp, just entirely different.
Valhalla is all tube, Lyr is a hybrid tube/ss
 
I asked because I was concerned that I might represent the OG's as good for either amp.
I don't know.
All-the-best.

There's a lot of novelty cost in those valves.
 
**If you pay more than $500 a pair you have to call them valves.

Nothing wrong with 67's  You should like those a lot.
 
Your signature says you have a Valhalla.  Do you have a Lyr as well?
Because, I have no idea how these tubes will sound in a Valhalla.  Just because the Lyr likes them doesn't mean the Valhalla will.
 
Someone more knowledgeable will provide the answers.

 
There are a few (? I don't have the data at hand) tubes that the Lyr and Valhalla have in common -- which are compatible ([size=small]6DJ8, ECC88 for instance).[/size]
 
[size=small]I too am trying a pair of Amperex, A-frame, 1971 Holland, in the Valhalla .................. they're the best I've had in there .. very pleased. [/size]

No.  Wrong type.
 
Needs to be an ECC88  or E88CC or 6922 or E188CC or .....  
 
6DJ8
 
One generalization is look for the "88"
 
There are more that will work.
