Amazed at how much difference rectifiers make.
Have been comparing NOS Amperex 5AR4, Sophia 274b
and NOS Tungsol 5r4. Right now the Sophia is ahead
on my D7000's, but the TS needs a few more hours on it.

Thanks for the tip! It began life as a silver one...and life has been hard.Someone dropped it and put a gouge in the transformer cover. It came with a newSophia rectifier and a few tubes. I bought some nos Rca 6DE7's and have aChatham 5R4 coming. Sounds great with my D7000's, and HD650's. Stillbreaking in some hD700's. This thread is going to be hard on my wallet!Already talking to glenn about adapters.regards,Hibuck....
Just bought a used WA6 with Princess 274b and PDPS. It's a little tarnished/less shiny than the ones I see pics of here,
but it sure sounds great with the NOS 6DE7's I picked up. Have also been trying a Amperex 5AR4 that is a bit more forward
but has a great width to the soundstage. Reading my way through this thread, but only up to page 310 right now.
Very good condition with HiFiMan cloth lined box. A killer entry-level set of cans
especially at this price. Pics sent to serious inquiries...send your email via PM.
