        Does not work with my setup. Plays 5 seconds then 10 seconds of silence then repeat. Beta is key word here so far. Tried it again tonight for 1 minute after an update, no issues. will listen more tomorrow.

      Took my first stab at building a headphone stand from scratch... 2x8 piece of oak cut up with a router then stained and some copper...

        Good on you! Wasn’t trying to minimize your excellent work. More highlighting my laziness. :)

        Thank you! With only a little bit of listening time the Lyr 3 is turning out to be an awesome birthday present! Only tube i've tried is a Sylvania '52 3 hole BB and it's pretty fantastic. Will have to compare to kenrad vt-231 and raytheon vt-231

      All this excitement over Yggy Analog 2... can anyone say for certain us Gumby owners have something similar on the horizon?

      First experience with planars... initial impressions: Gumby + Freya + Jot + HE-560 balanced = Highly enjoyable. Focus A Pads still on way...

        New Tung-Sol are probably your best bet for transparency at a reasonable price. Stuff like Sylvania 6SN7GTB are great, but can have a bit of bloom.

        Or 7N7 with adapter :)
        Those Sylvania 7n7's are a well kept secret :)

        It'll be automated. They'll have systems that automatically delete spam, and they'll just include "SBAF" etc on the list of keywords. Chances are that no human ever even saw your post.

        But, of course, a human set up the rules.

        My interest in headphones is nowhere near big enough to support two sites and hey, head-fi? I've forgotten it already.

        Shopping list for the year:
        Gumby ASAP
        Freya / Jot / Replace SU-1 with Lynx E22 (as budget allows)
        I foresee a great year in audioland for me.
