A couple hours with the Tung-Sol 2C51 and not enjoying it as much as the Western Electric 396a.

Give them a good 50 hours before passing judgement. You might change your mind. Thought mine sounded like schiit outta the box.

That WA22 is one beautiful monster. I don't think I like you anymore.

Well.... well.... well.... I'll take that as a compliment. :)

This is my first complete tube amp and will be doing a lot of research to find tubes i like with my sound signature. I wish I still had my MJ2 to compare the two side by side. One thing I will say is the HD800 pair so nice. The treble was never a problem for me even on a SS amp, but with this amp the top is rolled without any loss of detail.

I have been reading this thread for the several weeks now and finally ready to take the plunge. I have a Lyr 2 and a new Gumby (40 hours). I ordered the ECC88/6922 to 6N3/5670 adapters. I already have tube savers for my 6922 tubes. I also ordered some NOS Pair TungSol 2C51 Black Plate Twin Triode Vacuum Tubes. So am I good to go to get started? I am a noob to this tried to do my research so just need some validation. I do appreciate all the info that has been provided on this forum as it has really been helpful.
Thanks in advance!

Hopefully you ordered the reverse of that (see TK's link), since you'll be adapting 6N3P/5670 (et al.) TO ECC88/6922 (et al.), which is what your Lyr 2 uses natively. Hope that makes sense.

But yeah, otherwise, you're good to go.

Yes that is exactly what I ordered. Are they the correct ones?
Yes, that's the one. Sorry about this, though:

"This seller is currently away until Feb 27, 2018. If you make a purchase, there may be a delay in processing your order."

Hopefully they'll ship it today, otherwise it'll be nearly two months 'til you get them.
