I thought I saw a Prima Luna in the remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last summer.

For the rectifier, perhaps you can start off with the Mullard CV378, which is $120 at Well Audio at Burlington Square. If the U52 is electrically equivalent to the 5U4G, then the normal Tung Sol or RCA 5U4Gs can be a good starting alternative.

If CV378 cost you $120. I am sure I will take GZ34 or EML 5u4g anytime depends on your sonic taste.

I can't be sure until I double check, but I would guess it was the WES.

I'll edit in once i've double checked.

 

Edit-- I did my homework and checked the episode over and although it may look like a WES, upon closer inspection I cannot see the stax connections. Also, looking through Woo audio's lineup again I noticed that (unfortunately) none of the headphone tube amps matches the description: Two silver knobs, single headphone jack in the center, and four identically sized tubes across the top.

 

Long story short, looks like my first foray into sharp-eyed amp identifier was a failure. :(

That sounds fun.
I'll find time tomorrow to post up the screenshot.

I was proud of that catch, and wanted to share with fellow Woo Audio owners and fans.

 

Although not plugged into a Woo there are loads of  tubes used as props in and out of radio kit in the 1st season of Falling Skies :)

I have not. But I have switched from tube rolling to beer (barrel) rolling. ;) I also like St. Bernardus Wit. I visited the tavern a few days after I handed the WA2 to Ultrainferno and grabbed a St. Bernardus Wit at the suggestion of the Beer-tender.

I burned in my 596's for ~60 hours and rolled in some different driver tubes and WOW!!!!!!  My sound has never been better.

Are those the 596 you got from me? You've been patient!

I still have two 596 tubes here, seeing Keph disappeared. Also thinking of selling 6 of my stock of NOS 2399 tubes...

Yes, Ultrainferno.  They are the tubes I got from you.  I finally received my adapters this week.  I cannot believe how well they work in my Decware rig.  Thank you!
