What is your budget for this?
post #23777 of 30736

Also have the WA6,this time in combination with a Eastern Electric Mini Max Plus.

It is better than my Audio GD NFB 17.32 as it is more "musical" to my ears.

Excellent choice.

I will submit the Wyred4Sound DAC-1. Pre-owned if you can find it (3 year warranty/transferable).

I recommend PWD MKII if budget allowed. The best DAC I ever heard.

An excellent choice.  I am very pleased with mine.  In the same league, the Berkley Alpha DAC Series 2 is delicious.

 

The Wyred4Sound is nice.

 

The Grace M903 is very delightdful, but it has features the OP states he is not interested in.  I find it a great DAC as well is a wonderful tool in my studio.  I also have and like the Benchmark, but the OP has rejected it already.

 

On the more rational end, I am curious to hear the Micromega USB MyDac, despite the silly name.

just got a pair of RCA 6AS7s i ordered from ebay. they where only 10 bucks for a NOS pair! 

 

they lack the openess and clarity/transparency of the sylvania 7236, but they have a bit more bass, and such a smooth warm tubey sound, like really really tubey sounding. kinda stinks that they don't have anywhere near as much detail as the 7236, but these seem to tame the T1 treble really well biggrin.gif

Thinking of upgrading my DAC to a Wyred for Sound DAC1 aswell.. How does it sound with the WA6SE??

Wonder if its a huge improvement from the DAC i am using from the Burson HA 160D.

I find the RCA or Chatham to be the best tubes for the WA2. They pair up better than the 2399/5998 to my ears

Ugh... this waiting game is killing especially everytime I check this tread.

Even though it's been only a week since I got my order confirmation mail from Jack, whenever someone says 'I just recieved my Woo.' makes me think "hm.... mine should be next.." biggrin.gif

I thought I was good at waitng when I used to order bunch of car parts from Japan...guess not

Well It'll get here eventually but meanwhile my poor HD800 has to sing directly from my IPad or AV40's headphone out beyersmile.png

 

something's def missing here XD

Just a quick question to all Woo Audio and tube amplifier owners

Could running a tube amplifier without a headphone into it possibly damage the amp and/or the tubes.

Thanks
