Price is even more :O

 

I'm currently in talks for a group discount...of course, the other shopping is competing for my attention today as well. Yeah, the boxes have a built-in premium.

It is entirely possible that it is a tube issue so swapping them out is a good place to start after the good troubleshooting you've done so far.

 

I can tell you that my GES is DEAD quiet when there is no signal, even with the gained raised all the way.  This was a pleasant surprise with this amp.

 

Sending an email to Jack for advice is never a bad option, chances are he's seen this before.

 

Hopefully you find an easy fix and it's not something Jack needs to investigate.

 

I've recently been rolling some tubes into the GES and found great results with some NOS 1961 white label Mullards and the Genelex Gold Lion re-issues.  I found the Mullards to be strong down low bringing a little more bass impact with a generally euphonic presentation.  Very enjoyable.  I've only had a few sessions with the gold lions but so far I find them to have great extensions high and low, and seem to provide very crisp detail, great instrument separation, with slightly less impact in the low end.  The jury is out on which I prefer in the long run.  I've been listening with the 007 MK II but I'll be getting my MK I's tomorrow so I'll have more variety to throw into the mix!

 

Good luck with finding that hum!

I would like to see if there is anything else I could possibly try before sending an email to Woo Audio. Would replacing the no-name stock 6S4 power tubes have any effect? Besides this minor issue the amp is perfect and I would dread having to ship it back. I even have quad matched Mullard 12ax7 reissue tubes coming in next week that I can't wait to try out. I am new to tube amps so all of this is a little intimidating and any help would be appreciated.

The UPS guy went ninja and showed up to deliver my LCD2's at 10 am this morning.  I've never seen the ups truck on my street before 3 pm before.  I leave the house for 25 minutes in the morning and of course he tries to deliver.

 

i checked the tracking.  says he left notice at 959 am.  I thought i left at 10:05.  He had to be waiting for me to leave.

I swear they hide out and wait for you to leave. Or take a shower!

Im wondering if the ppl who have had good luck with the lcd2 and the wa2 all have rev 1. Cause the rev 2s are the tougher one to drive right?

Can't wait to hear em. And see if these work with my 2. Im gonna be optimistic

Reeltime,

Great setup what middle tubes are you using?

The drivers are PSVANE Treasure series Mark II (CV181-TII aka 6SN7).  They just came out last week and arrived from China tonight.  They barely fit.

First listen has been remarkable-- not a bad way to spend a Friday night and kick off the Holiday weekend!

 

Next month I'm changing the 300Bs but I'm still on the fence between the Sophia and the EMLs.  I'm leaning EML.
