Hrm..  just noticed the glass on my rectifier tubes had started browning.  Could someone tell me if this is normal or a sign the tube is dying?  Only started looking at them because I lost sound in a channel, swapped out the tubes and seems fine now.  Was using EML-5U4G meshies if that helps.

Rectifiers can and will darken. Miss Sophia (274B Mesh) darkened in only two weeks of play. But I wouldn't describe it as "browning." Darkening, yes. Well, maybe...

USAF-596 final sale is pending... (potentially 3 tubes remaining)

 

Jack was interested in acquiring 10 when I submitted the offer. But fellow members swooped in to secure 7, leaving only three. Trying to see if Jack will accept an "odd-lot." If not, 3 rectifiers will remain open. Should hear back from him overnight; Sunday...

They just sound more dull out of the WA2.  they lose a bit of energy.

To smooth perhaps?

 

is there any clipping as you raise the volume? for me, they clip past half, especially on music that has any sort of bass.

O, but this will be in the spirit of a party! A one year anniversary, if you would. Obtained my first '596' in Autumn 2011. Louis Roederer Estate or Veuve-Clicquot selection dependent, and this could easily turn into a few hundred dollar celebration of tongue_smile.gifone.

You might want to move yours up. Confirmed with my source today this is it until another forgotten/hidden batch is found, much like this one.

Well...if sources dry up... and I'm shown destroying a '596' on YouTube...forget email, I'm calling you the moment a mob forms outside the window to the listening room!

I wouldn't worry about it. My EML 5U4G mesh plate has clocked about 1000+ hours and it has a dark diffraction grating pattern inside the glass. I posted pics at http://www.head-fi.org/t/428570/woo-audio-amp-owner-unite/20325#post_8305692

The remaining three went before I could type this message above.

Thanks Silent One, but I already have four of them, and I would feel guilty hording more. I would like new owners to have them instead. But thanks for the offer!

I forgot you are :thumb: well stocked! Hope life is good half way around the world.
