        I was going to say, No, you must be thinking of USB3.0. But I had the sense to google first!

        And it seems it is a thing, but is for the new USB "C" interfaces on phones. Perhaps the rest of us don't have to worry about it? Yet?

        USB Audio Class 2 drivers, which work over USB 2 or 3. It's the reason why you don't need to install a driver for most DACs to use them over USB on Mac/Linux/pretty much anything else, but you do need to on Windows. Windows is missing the generic class 2 USB audio drivers, so vendors need to supply their own currently, which is a massive PITA.

        Yes, I'm aware of that. And I remember Schiit's response to the ongoing (then) Windows USB-Audio debacle.
        Linux here, so now worries. Except of course, if the vendor decides to do something non-standard, which puts their device off the linux menu.

      Well I've gone down the rabbit hole and ordered a pair of NOS Philips Miniwatt E188CC. At least I got a good deal on them!

      Enjoying my new (to me) UE900's! Very comfortable with the comply tips and sound great. Big step up from my past RE400's.

      @Mikoss has some very nice and tempting tubes that make my Lyr sound fantastic! Must. Resist. Expensive. Tubes...

        what is the point of having a good amp like Lyr2 and not buying tubes that make it sound as good as possible? my Mjo2 has great NOS tube pairs and never looked back.

        I'm trying not to go too crazy with the tube rolling, I already have a bunch including OG's, but some of his are just awesome! And my Lyr is the original, still sounds great though. I need to clear out some of my tubes before getting any others (I have a bunch of Russian tubes but I am preferring the Holland tubes).

        agreed, tube crazy rolling is not worth the time or expense. plan on 2 or 3 pairs of good NOS and end there. Philips/RTC from Holland Heerlen plant, maybe Siemens CCa and done. eventually step to Lyr2 or Mjo2.

      Glad to have 2 pads that are the same size for my HD650's now! HD650's sounding great with the new Orange Globes too.

      Well my new Schiit sounds great (Lyr/ Uberfrost)! Really enjoying the HD650's with the Reflektor SWGP, still lots of tubes to try though!

        What the Schiit did you end up with, Lyr 2 & Bifrost? [clearly just an excuse for more Schiity wordplay]

        I ended up going with an original Lyr and Bifrost with about 10 pairs of tubes as I found a good deal in Canada on the pair. Interested on finding out how the pair will sound!
