Sorry to hear about your problems. My Little Dot MKIII served me reliably for 15 months and I too upgraded to a Woo WA6SE. Supposedly the power tubes have a shorter lifespan with low impedence headphones, like the ones I use, but they haven't failed yet. Good luck with your next amp.

The Sophia arrives on Thursday. I was going to wait until week 3 of build time to order it, but this came very early.
Just received my WA6SE yesterday and took some quick pics. It's been burning in using 8 hour shifts with an hour or two to cool down in between. I took a quick listen and am very happy so far with the presentation. Here are a few pics:
I have read almost every thread about rectifiers for the Wa6se and spent hours debating between the EML 5U4G and the Sophia Princess. I had to just bite the bullet and order one or the other. I went with the Princess and if it still bothers me a few months from now, I'll go for the EML too. But it seems the differences are minimal compared to rolling driver tubes or other tweaks. That's the gist I got from all those threads, but I might be wrong.

I ordered a silver Wa6se on Feb 14th and prepared for a 4-5 week wait time. I received shipping notification on the 24th. Wow, am I surprised!! I live in NJ and hopefully shipping from NY will only take a couple days. Can't wait. Now I need to re-read 172 pages to remember which tubes I want to roll with first.

It is completely unfair, and regardless you shouldn't be giving a % improvement in SQ, especially not in this situation. I was only without the phones for 4-5 days and I still have the original D7000 cables which are still intact, minus 4 inches...
