...and meeting up with you NorCal guys sometime would be great
personally, i think the dact attenuator is overkill for an amp that's not a high
gain type...save the money and get the power supply done by jack. it works
and is the biggest upgrade that i've done myself to date. it shouldn't cost more
than $50 in parts...

I was under the assumption that Jack isn't ready to do the power supply mod of Jamato's yet. If he is, I'd have him do it in a heartbeat. My guess is that my amp is a week away from being completed. I'm not lacking for funds, that isn't a problem.

Can someone confirm he'll do the mod? I'd hate to bother the poor guy again.

What date did you order yours? I ordered March 27 and he said he would begin work on it either Friday or early next week. 2/4 upgrades aint bad. The stepped attenuator seems like huge huge overkill.

The email to me where he said he wouldn't do the mod because it's experimental was sent in the last 4 days. I can't imagine things have changed since then.

I ordered my amp on March 20th. He said it would take 4 weeks, give or take.

I really would like to have this power supply mod done, whether by jack, or jamato...if he's willing.

Listening to Dire Straits, Brothers in Arms, and the bass is finally where I want it, solid, defined and into my shoulders. Such ease of presentation. Sometimes I hear distortion and then I realized after trying other amps and listening more closely, it is the recording! High definition has its plusses and minuses? :^) This is all with the stock coupling caps. Tomorrow the Silver and Gold Mundorf oil caps arrive. Should be interesting after they break in.

I am finding the bass more visceral like that of speakers although speakers move the air in a way headphones can not but the overall quality and excitement is extremely good, well excellent.

Man, keep this up and you'll be seeing my WA6 REAL soon.

Well a long day in ICU and I have to get up at 330 in the AM but I had to put the silver and gold Mundorfs in. Man do they sound bad, bass soft and distortion, oh wait, they need time. :^)

Well just an hour and they are clearing up but it will be much more time, many more hours, many but the sound is already big and the stage is expansive. We shall see.

I have the Black Gate caps for the power supply but one thing at a time.

You went for the silver/gold & oil at $60+/each ?

I will try them eventually, but I can see silver/gold & oil having tough competition from the 1/2 priced silver/oil, just like the non oil silver/gold.

Heck, the $8 Mundorf Zn gives them all tough competition..

The silver and non oil doesn't seem that well received. I have used the silver and oil for years and wanted to go for their best, why not?

Well, then put diamonds on it to go with all that gold and silver. A diamond studded WA6 will make the front pages at www.iwanttobejustlikepuffdaddy.com

I have heard changes with coupling caps but the organic grasp of the music with these yet to be broken in Munorf silver and gold oil caps is excellent. Another layer of separation of the music is peeled away.

Oh, the caps size I used is the .22uf. I normally use a .22 as a coupling cap as I find it for many purposes to work the best.

That's good news. Later on, maybe you can switch in some silver/oils and let us know the differences...?
