It's the only color for this particular item. It doesn't match my silver WA22 but it sits on top of a black speaker amp so it looks just swell in my rack. It's much bigger and heavier than I would have thought, one inch less wide but the same otherwise as my WA22 without transformers and tubes. And it sounds excellent with the Lambda Pros, they don't seem to take a back seat to my more expensive dynamics at all. Very pleased so far...

Or better yet, is there a place where I can read up on the different tubes kinda like tubes 101.

Again, sorry for hijacking the thread.
From the rectifiers I have tried probably the Mullard GZ37 is the warmer one I have tried.

I have not tried other 330B than my EML 300B Mesh and I really like them.

For drivers there is many you can try. The Mullard ECC32 are very nice but expensive (in the $600 range for a pair). I personally really like the Tungsol round plates/black glass 6F8G (you need an adaptor for these) or 6SN7GT. IMO some good cheaper options are the RCA Gray Glass 6SN7 or the RCA Red Base 5692.

You can read some about the different sounds of 6SN7 tubes here:

Agreed, that's not a hijack at all. More like Hi, Jack (Wu) biggrin.gif

Another good (and closer) place to sort out the wild and wacky world of 6SN7 tubes:

I have a set of 6FD7 somewhere, that Jack sold me, so once I find them I can put them in and see how they go.  Skylab had recommended that tube to me.  Otherwise I'm back to my old RCA 6DE7.  I have the older WA6 that can't take the 6EW7, but I do have some spacers that will raise the tubes.  So, if the spacers move the 6EW7 tubes ABOVE the holes in the top plate, then the fatter 6EW7 can be used, right?

 

How may hours have you logged on your Sylvania?

No idea, but I've been using these VT-231 since July 2010 when I bought the adapters.

Wonder why Woo is all over the place when it comes to product design. Their transport and dac looks nothing like the old amps, and now they've come out with something really different, the WA7. I think I like that better than the transport and dac design though. Looks like something an Apple fanatic would want next to his Macbook Air.

I would like to obtain the USAF 596 rectifier and adaptor.  Thx, Tom

Which driver tubes does those of you who have WA6(-SE) enjoy with your USAF-596, and why? I've got a WA6SE and just got the rectifier today, it's used hence burned in.

Thanks for the great advice! I tried a pair of Rogers 6DR7's and USAF-596 for LCD-3. Great bass extension and control, details all over the place and a wicked sparkle! WOOHOOOO!!

 

Going to give them a go with LCD-2 r1 soon, but hard to put the LCD-3's down right now! :D

 

 

 

Which brands' of 6DR7's have you got, please? :)

My WA 22 was shipped with the following tubes:

 

274B/n          (Shophia Princess)

6SN7GT        (Gen. Elec)

7236

 

What tubes should I stock for back up and/or rolling.

My preference:


Rectifier - USAF 596 (needs adapter) or EML 5U4G

Driver - TS BGRP

Power - TS 7236 for LCDs or GEC 6AS7G for HD800
