Schiit Lyr Tube Rollers

    Did you buy these? They are marked as sold. I emailed the seller last Nov, here are his responses:


    These is one tube that has a poor stamping of the diamond. It is very difficult to see even with a magnifying glass, but it is there. Since the difficulty of seeing the diamond may cause concern for a buyer, I have removed this tube from the listing. I prefer not to get into a dispute with a buyer over what can be seen, or not seen.

    As stated in the listing, the tubes were tested on a Hickok 6000A.

    They have not been evaluated for microphonics. I do not use nor do I have headphones.

    If microphooics are of concern to you, I recommend purchasing tubes from a seller who can assure you their tubes have been tested for microphonics, I will not provide a guarantee of no microphonics. A tube can be microphonic in one circuit and lesser or not at all in another.

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Very interested. It’s hard to tell in the pics, but do all the tubes have the Telefunken “diamond” Mark on the bottoms?
    Just curious which Hickok you are using? ( I’m refurbish a Triplett tester).

    Oh, and have you actually listened to them with headphones? For Microphonics?

    I did not. I was going to offer you the stronger pair to split, but they were gone when I checked today.

    Has anyone dealt with viva tubes? Are they considered a good seller?

    Yes! I have. They are pretty good. Ship fast, have actual pictures of what you are buying etc. A lot better than many places that run their own online pages too. If you use code ebay25 or something like that on their actual website it will give you a discount on your first order - least that’s what I was given after I made an eBay order from them.

    Well, seemed like a bit of a toss-up : great-testing tubes, but not a confident seller in terms of Microphonics, etc. no big loss.

    You're right. Another set will come along. I have enough in the queue right now to keep be busy. :L3000:

    I purchased a pair from them several months ago. Arrived quickly and were as described. Their prices are on the high side, but it appears they'd take care of things if there was a problem which obviously adds some value to the process.

    Telefunken Munchen ECC81 are seriously smooth and relaxing. They're on par with the Kenrad 6SL7 for smoothness, but have a bit more depth. Definitely a keeper. Slightly smaller stage than the tele angled O getter and more laid back.

    Not a huge Telefunken fan anymore but the early 60's Telefunken ECC82 smooth plates are absolutely fantastic, not a huge Siemens fan anymore but the nickel plate Siemens ECC82 are absolutely fantastic as well.

    Hey what websites do you all find to be most useful in finding
    baseline or expected NOS measurements for each tube?

    I concur the smooth plates and nickel plates are really good tubes!
