Welcome back, longbowbbs. :thumb: Knowing that you're back safe and able to conduct your test, I shall retire for the morning...

Has anyone tried one of the 596 I mailed? cool.gif

The USPS seems to have taken mine hostage.  I'm less than 20 miles from dminches and the postal service hasn't been able to cross the great divide yet.  Not even showing "out for delivery" this morning....

Crazy.  I have found that packages arrive before they are updated on the web site.

You should have just picked it up at his place ;)

True, but I don't need to be getting any more "ideas" by looking at other people's nice setups eek.gif

Timing is everything - the status just changed showing it has now arrived at my local post office, so perhaps it will show today after all.

Just put in a bid on a WA2 to go along with my WA6.  This thread has not been good for

my wallet and as I'm reading through it, I'm only up to page 700.  Hard to imagine what will 

happen to me by the time I've read all the way to the end smile_phones.gif

Hibuck....

Thanks everyone for your feedback.  Those of you with Glenn and keph adapters have a nice positive connection.  It seems that the 3 of us who have Woo adapters are seeing varying degrees of 'looseness'.  dminches, your description is identical to what I am seeing, btw.  The connector basically just hangs on the pin.  But none of us have experienced performance problems with them.  I am starting to feel better but would love to hear from others with the Woo adapter just to be absolutely sure.

My co-worker has the woo adapters too for his WA6SE and hasn't had any issues.  Given the length of the connector on the tube itself I can't see any issues with Woo's design.

You have a co-worker who has a Woo?  Awesome to even know someone who's into audio these days let alone own a great amp.

Well, these aren't independent events.  I took him to a south jersey meet and exposed him to this madness.  Now we swap tubes and music.

Just to be clear, my Woo adapter connections grab the pins.  There is still some ability to wiggle the connector, but it has a solid grab.

How cool is that to have someone you're working w/to swap tubes.

My 596 adapters were from Glenn and they fit very nicely and snug. For me, I'll always look to Glenn for adapters first as long as he is making them. I had Woo Audio adapters for 6F8G tubes. They looked gorgeous, but fit a little loose and picked up a little microphonics from the rectifier.
