If so, is that why we heard a lack of dynamics in the Woo3 when we had it in our system? Or is it not an OTL issue but rather a WA3 - specific issue? (It's not a system issue - some other amps have been fine, dynamics-wise.) My WA3 with power tube 5998...

It sounds detailed and juicy. when I turn the volume at 1 o'clock, the wa6 makes enough...

Thank you guys! I will write more about my experience. I have never modified my wa3, I should change some tubes, 5998 or 7336, right? I turn on the tube amp 15 minutes before I listen to it. I turn off it when I leave. the tubes on wooaudio are not expensive, but have good sound, it is one reason I love wooaudio so much. I dont care the lifespan of the tubes, for example, the 5ar4 is from $10 to $45, the 6de7 is about $8.

And it's been about 15 min since I turned the amp on....and the tubes are getting REALLY hot...is this normal? Hi, Nichifanlema. The temperature of the bulb is above 200 degrees Celsius, be careful! It's normal. I want to know what model of the headphones you are using?
