Tube Amplifier Lyric T-24

The smallest tube amplifier of the HiFi universe saves only the performance. Musically, the lyric TI-24 (1000 Euro) surpasses even optimistic expectations, if the “NF adj.” switch is.

  1. Tube amplifier lyric T-24
  2. Data sheet

An amplifier like a work of art: The thick chromed metal of buttons and side feels almost soft, the black lacquer shines deeply, as if he were still fluid. Protected including, from look and touch, the old, beautiful amplifier school, not flat etched in printed circuit boards, but in accurate point to point wiring three-dimensionally networked. Only the rear sits a tiny head plates for the USB digital input.

Four output valves are on deck without size comparison you could keep them for EL34, then had the amp in about the size of his major lyric and Cayin brothers. EL84, power pentodes such as the 34, but it is clear only small – hardly bigger than a lipstick. Tons of these pure audio tubes were built in the 50’s, 60’s years. Steam radio reinforced grandpas so that March music. In the legendary guitar amp Vox AC-30, a Quartet of EL84 electrified the riffs of the stones, the Beatles and the shadows. Later also, Radiohead, Nirvana, U2 and countless other rock icons took advantage of the amp with the characteristic catchy sound.

A HiFi tube amp must not, however, not too much produce pronounced distortion sound. Sound set Eric Satie not like Eric Clapton and Kurt Masur does not like Kurt Cobain, one is well advised not to leave the single-digit range with the TI-24. Behind it, one enters the world of distortion. The only anticipated, so after not claiming we had not warned.

A handful of Watts sound like large, depends decisively on the speaker. The lyric like high-impedance high-efficiency boxes clear. He played but on a rather average in this spot KEF XQ 40 glamorous real, alive, and intense, and put the tester before a problem: this amp can ever not loud, cower before bass breezes like a blade of grass in the wind and sand in a forte played Steinway ever a hint of Fender Rhodes into. -were they secretly broke, or why she wanted no one more?

How to classify something? With a compromise: Just below his stronger, more stable mate of Cayin A-55t, knowing that the TI-24 even suggests this ideal matching boxes – about the ultra dynamic Voxativ Ampeggio -.

Besides humility one learns of the TI-24 interesting lessons about the effect of over all negative feedback. This corrective action – she recovers a portion of the output signal with opposite sign at the entrance – is about the “NFB Adj” – button on the front in six steps adjustable. After hearing find an individual feedback optimal for each box, we tried the lyric, had indeed: one on minimum during Voxativ, three levels higher for KEF, one back to the Cabasse Minorca. The changes were not subtle. The figure had the singer in one-dimensional to high setting and lifeless, slightly asthmatic, while loose reins were bad for the bass and gave a nervous-diffuse touch the sound – distortion was too dominant. Given the clarity of the “locking” to the respective optimum arises the question whether as a feedback adjustment for other amplifiers would be useful. The differences in bigger amps should not be quite so obvious; the lyric benefits of it anyway, clearly with his narrow border area.

Conclusion

The TI-24 is although not really cheap, but this pretty processed and superb matched. It is a full, adult tube integrated amplifier in miniature. Its limited performance may limit the success of the mass market, tubes fans will not fail, however, come to listen to him.
