A tube amp that changed my general perception on tube amps

Posted

Pros: Clarity, transparency & soundstage

Cons: Price

I recently had the opportunity to listen to WA6SE on demo for 2 hours at the comfort of my home and this is my take on it. The DAC is DACport and the headphone used is LCD-2 Rev 2 if anyone is interested to know.

One Of The Best!

Posted

Pros: Superb in all respects

Cons: None

With the upgrades, especially the Blackgate caps (now a collectors item), and the Sophia Princess rectifier, and Tung Sol 6FD7 or Raytheon 6EW7 tubes, the WA6 SEm is one of the best SE amps there is with all types of dynamic phones.  Get one - you'll love it.
