Nope, never!

I was just thinking back my first week with the Woo2-T1 pairing and remembering the same giddy excitement Houbi is currently enjoying.

Well if you can convince yourself that Delhi is 'local', come on over! We'll whip up some paneer bhaji, chutney, chapati, and a couple of cold Kingfishers while the tubes warm up.

Looks a heck of a lot better than any of my attempts with the 2 in the dark.

 

 

Noob question, is it OTL or transformer coupled that needs a load when running?

 

I think it's transformer coupled, perhaps someone can confirm.

Much to learn about these combo's...great depth on "Joshua judges Ruth" by
Lyle Lovett. Gonna be a fun trip.

Enjoy!

I started with 5998s but I didn't like the sound, I'm using RCA 6A7G now and I'm very happy

I do think it is transformer coupled. I never plug in my headphones in any of the OTL amps I have when turning on/off.

Probably good advice.

 

I thought it was the trans coupled that needed the load.  

Do all 6AS7 varients sound similar?

I've had the 6AS7G RCA's but never anything else.  I notice the GEC version sells for a crap load of money.  and then Soveteks and other Russians are dirt cheap.  

 

Really the RCA is a great deal for a good tube.  Problem i've had with them is noise/hum.  but its not noticable when the music is playing.

post #23574 of 31852

6AS7G is a tube that often hums, you have to be a bit lucky. I have a great pair of Chathams but they hum as well, but you can't hear it when music's playing.

There is a lot of difference between the 6AS7G tube brands, we even have a dedicated 6AS7G tube rolling thread ;)

LCD2 incoming.  There seems to be some confusion as to whether the WA2 can drive em.  However i've seen several threads/reviews talking about the LCD2 and the HE500 both being driven perfectly fine by the WA2.  And the HE500 is much less effecient than the LCD right?

 

Oh well, I've got a small arsenal of vintage iron I plan to use as backup if my Woo with 5998's can't get the job done.

 

and then i guess i could always move the 2 or try to trade for a 6SE.  But I really really like the warmth of the 2 and the pre amp.  Kinda why i got it in the first place. 

 

they get here friday so i'll report back then.  Hopefully its good news lol

post #23576 of 31852
I never had vintage and LCD2s concurrently, but I suspect that combo will be more pleasing than the WA2 + LCD2. Be sure to post your impressions - I'm interested in how they sound together.
post #23577 of 31852

I never use the WA2 with the LCD2. If I do use tubes I use it with the 339, but mostly I use the V200.

I really should sell the LCD2.

gratz on your purchase, please let me know how they sound with your WA2. i know i experience clipping with my WA2 and theres no way it can run the LCD-2, anything past half volume clips and theres like no bass on the LCD-2.
