    Sweet!!! You didn't mention specifically....did that come from @Deyan ? If so, I concur....he does really nice work and is very accommodating with specific configuration requests..

    Yeah, sorry about that. It was @Deyan
    Really good guy and I recommend him for all your adapter needs.

    On the topic of things that go in tube sockets that aren't tubes, I seem to be unable to get my socket savers out of my Lyr 2, and the position of my monitor on my new desk keeps bumping the tall tubes with the savers in. How do I get these dang things out?? They are stuck in there like wisdom teeth.

    Long nosed pliers or hemostats work.

    The main reason I will never use one. :wink:

    I couldn’t use a Schiit amp without socket savers.

    And don't forget that even when you turn off the power, those big capacitors can still give you an unpleasant jolt. So use insulated pliers and work with one hand behind your back.

    I use "Long Wire Twist Tie".

    1. Form loop at end of wire twist tie, about the circumference of socket saver.
    2. Remove vacuum tube.
    3. Slide loop at end of twist tie over socket saver.
    4. Gently pull up wire (looped around socket saver) "Word of the day SLOWLY"

    I have used this technique to remove socket savers from Schiit tube equipment many times.

    I've always had luck just placing a Russian tune in the socket saver, and wiggling it out. The Ruskies usually seem to have a slightly tighter fit.

    Or, ff you have an old Russian tube that is dead or disposable, you can slightly bend the pins outwards so they sit really tight in the saver, and then wiggle out.

    Most people won't. I just don't roll enough to justify the hassle, and extra crap in my chain. I find a tube I like and leave it in there for months.

    Same here. I don't find the tubes hard to pull out and I prefer them to sit low anyway.

    Why even take out the SS unless it goes bad which none of mine have? You guys have issues with them going bad? It's all good as it's preference anyway. Personally I roll quite a bit as that's part of the fun.
    Wes, it "seems" like you roll a lot when I read your posts. LOL.

    It might seem like that, but I really don't. I had a little spurt where I rolled a few, to see if the grass was greener on the other side. :wink: I also consider a lot, as in rolling a different tube every couple days or weeks. I still don't get the socket saver thing, as I have never heard of a socket getting worn out, but I know most like them.

    Sorry for coming off, as a jerk! I just really don't like ss, as you can tell. :wink:
