WA6SE design optimized for stock or upgraded option

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm interested in the WA6SE amp but not sure if it's optimized for the upgraded options or the stock? In other words, is the stock unit a cost-down version of the final design or vice-versa?

Some of the most respected hifi amps on the market like Shinden & LFD etc are optimized through listening and not sticking the most expensive & highest spec parts into the design like ordering a DELL PC online. This is a concern as I've heard enough maxed out mods that strips the stock unit of it's musically engaging characteristics; athough certain hifi criteria are improved.

Will be great if anyone here have live with both stock & upgraded WA amps beyond quick A/B care to share their experience.

Tube Rolling would have the most significant effect on tube amps,

followed by changing its internal electrical components.

write to Jack, he would be able to list to you what are the more significant electrical components changes that you want to look into,

otherwise, the stock is good performance matched with the tube you like,

since tube amps varies greatly (not all, but woo's ones does) for tube-rollling

This is an old thread, so sorry for bumping it, but if you do a simple search, you will find quite a few impressions. A lot of members here are also very helpful, and you can PM them. I have done both of the above, and found a lot of details on Woo amps.
