post #23656 of 30533

I'm doing pretty good down here. I temporarily swapped out the 596 for the EML 5U4G mesh, since it's such a festive looking tube.

Change of pace does the brain good!

Yeah if i turn it up to what i'd call loud it starts to clip i think..  past 1 oclock it starts sounding bad.

yup same here, seems like we both have the same issues with our WA2. 

 

however, other people haven't had this problem.

 

we still have the same rig too, down to the same software wink.gif

post #23663 of 30533

makes me wonder if we have a latter or slightly dif version of the WA2 than the others.  Or if somehow the DLIII is responsible.  but i doubt that.

 

I'd hate to part with the 2 but the 6SE is looking more and more attractive every day. 

i love the pre amp on it, but its hard to justify a 1000$ preamp with a couple hudred worth of tubes in it, when nothing else i have is that expensive

Both of my in-use 596 tubes are now shelved. Making the rounds are both of my EML 5U4G tubes. They have been hopscotching my amps. They are now working in the Decware ZP3 phonostage and the WA22.

Looking good Clayton! What TT and cartridge are you using currently?

Thanks for the reassurances guys !  Still couldn't figure out why the right channel went out there but it's working now.  All I did was change a few sets of tubes to see if I had a dead one, then put back in the tubes I had to start with and it was working again.  Also tightened the input selector with a hex key and switched it back and forth a few.  Any ideas what the problem might've been?

It is the Pro-Ject Xperience Classic, Olive Wood, with the cartridge it came with: the Sumiko Blue Point No.2.

 

It is now $200 less than when I paid for it. :(

Looks like someone is going head to head with the VPI Traveler. I have always enjoyed Sumiko cartridges. Very nice!
