Woo WA22 - Page 3

post #31 of 322
Has anyone noticed Jack is replacing the 12AU7's with 6SN7's in the production units?

ZDT/Woo22 Can't wait for comparisons . I just hope there isn't to many upgrade options to muddy the water.

I was eyeing the WA6SE, but WA22 can take both single ended and balanced phone. With HD800 on the way, will be a natural choice for me; really like Woo Audio's industrial design, and their cnc milling are top class too.

I'm not so sure if the multitude of upgrades are such a great idea though. I've heard a few cases of hifi mod gone wrong when someone replaced a few stocks parts with "better" components.

Will be more reassuring if they just optimize the sound quality the best they can for each model. They can also streamline their production & logistics if there are less options available.

Is that good or bad ?

I would like to know your opinion about
what upgrades it needs.
post #36 of 322
The price now is $1800. and from the pictures, it is compatible with 274B which is superior than 5U4G rectifier.

very tempting.

Preordered. Jack said the sound is second only to the WA5 LE and said most of the upgrades will just be better tubes. They haven't considered any parts upgrade for it so far.

Where did you see that?

It's at the top of the WA22 page. It says" Pre-production unit shown, 6SN7 driver tubes will be used in production unit"

Yea maybe there was a good reason for it. I kinda like 6SN7 tubes too
post #43 of 322
this is look so great.

Using the 6sn7 will let you use adapters for many a tube. Say the SP ECC1 for the 12A-7, the 2c51 adapter, etc.

I'm toying with the thought of doing a Beta but this would be an attractive alternative and I'd still get tubes.

Yep, I was almost going to get a maxxed WA6 but this thing is only a bit more
