Liked? LOVE! :D This is the best combo I have heard yet. USAF-596 + 6DR7 + LCD-2 r1 or LCD-3 = PLEASURE. The LCD-2 r1's sound tight, detailed and the midbass is just to die for. The top end is not harsh, just sparkly. Heck, I have a hard time saying which one of the LCD-x I prefer more! Goodness gracious!

 

Thank you, need to find a pair of those Pinnacles. :)

Try them on..they are good too..but i don't pair them with my LCD2 and HE-500 since its too bass heavy..but the 6FD7 is good with my HD650 and other dynamic headphones that i own...

Anyone having first hand experience with WA22 (stock tubes or other) versus the Schiit Mjonir? I have been contemplating for a WA22 for quite some time, but so happy with the Mjolnir I'm unsure if I even bother assessing the WA22 anymore. Need som constructive input from you guys.

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

Driver - TS BGRP

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

 

 

THANKS JC.  Anyone else have some favorites?

Best bass out of all the driver tubes I've tried with the 6SE.

In case anyone is interested, I posted my review of the Woo WEE at InnerFidelity. In summary - it's a great way to get into an electrostatic system without breaking the bank. Especially if you already own a nicer amp or integrated.

Ok, thanks to the both of you. Would you mind sharing which brands you enjoy the most? To be honest, I have problems hearing the difference between different brands of 6EW7 and 6DE7. Got two pair of Philico 6FD7 with fat bottles, will try those later :D

 

Think I might need to get a spare of this USAF-596 rectifier, best one yet (out of Mullard {GZ33, G37}, EML 5U4G and some others). The GZ37 with brown base and military markings was airy though, felt like I was floating around in the skies.

I have The Tung-Sol 6FD7 and other Generic brand 6FD7 the construction and sound is the same as the Tung-Sol..For the 6EW7 i love the Sylvania (fat bottle) the most...

Thanks, project86. I'm looking to make my way through the entry-level doorway with Stax. WooAudio could very well be the host waiting for me wink.gifon the other side.

No problem. I know how intimidating it can be thinking that any decent Stax rig must cost a fortune. Yes, it's still not cheap, but $499 for the WEE plus $580 for the SR-407 is not too terrible (assuming you already own a halfway decent amp or integrated).

Yes, additional costs continue to give me pause. Though, if I had committed earlier in the year and suspended other tweaks, I would have completed the transition already.rolleyes.gif At least both of my amps will not leave reason for pause - both sound wonderful (custom built OTL amp by 2359glenn & a 1980 Pioneer SX-D7000). ksc75smile.gif

At what point down the road can "Striving" be replaced with "Addiction?" blink.gif evil_smiley.gif
