Wow Mike, great review! Your knowledge of tubes and your audio-linguistics are very impressive. I am so glad you got to experience the great grey shielded CCAs. A truly extraordinary tube.
My latest passion is for the BUG Head Emperor audio player. It takes playback to a new level.
Am selling my GEC 6080 NOS pair...only because I just bought a pair of GEC 6AS7G's (thanks to Franatic for his help!)
Here's the link to my posting on the For Sale Forum. They need a worthy home. The upper mids and treble are just killer on em.
Pure liquid goodness.
It sounds pretty fantastic and I got it all for my birthday in March but I am probably going to be listing my setup for sale soon. Need the cash to pay for new baby bills. Was nice to be able to see what everyone was always talking about with how much difference a good tube amp makes :)
Congrats! It's better than being in heaven because you don't have to die to go there... :p
What are those little disks on in the background?
Hello Mike, and thanks!
Those disks are brass weights from Mapleshade Audio. They are supposed to dampen resonances in the chassis of the equipment. I had some extra lying around so I put them on.
I can't wait to get me Exactpower EP 15A back from being repaired (undervalued bias caps were put in right from the beginning). The WA2 will receive true 120V and 60Hz and I'M THRILLED to hear what the WA2 will sound like then.
I can't tell you how happy I am with the WA2. I've been in the loudspeaker "game" for 25 years. I've been to the shows in NY, Denver and Vegas. I've heard the mega six-figure loudspeaker systems and I can say without a doubt, that NONE of those systems has given me as much joy as my Sennheiser HD800s with this little Woo WA2. What I've heard in my new venture into the headphone listening world in the past month has made me happier than ever before. Thank you Woo Audio. Music is now fun again.
