One thing about tube amps (well at least mine) is they seem incredibly sensitive to ambient interference and ground loop noise. I had my wireless router sitting too close to mine and got much noise until I moved the router a couple of metres away. Also had noise from the outlets in my previous house.

Same here.  I had to move my cell phone into another room(or turn it off), plus I had to begin using a power conditioner due to intermittent audible noise from my outlets....

 

Once that was done, I find that neither of my Woo amps have any audible noise whatsover, even when the volume knob is pegged(with all sources turned off, of course!)

 

I'm actually shocked I don't experience more EMI than I do considering all of the PC's. laser printers, wireless routers/phones, monitors, etc I have in the same home office area as my head-fi gear.......

 

Guess we should just all convert over to SS amps so we won't have these problems as often :-)

I'm just still playing "catch-up" as I wade through past posts.  Enjoy my WA6 and WA2

immensely!  Still watching for a good deal on some better power tubes for the 2.  I have

Sylvania and GE 6080's...but all this talk about 5998's has me scouring that auction site.

 

Still burning in my HD700's and wonder if I might end up moving to the HD800?  The D7000's 

are ever so slightly bass heavy, but there's something about their overall tonality that keeps

bringing me back.  Enjoying the read (up to page 1300) and the "woo group".  Keep up the good

work folks!

Hibuck....

Maybe that's just me :D

 

I'm the same way with amps, tubes, and most everything else (except maybe restaurants).

 

I also read reviews to death. So much so that I usually end up not buying anything. I usually pull the trigger after someone else has or has had the opportunity to hear one themselves. ;) As with the DT770 AE 32Ω 88. ;)

I agree. I've always been able to have a dead quiet background with my 6SE. Noise is not created by the amp, it's just a symptom being amplified.

Burn in isn't going to change those 700's much. In this case I would endorse the upgrade to the 800, well worth the price of admission, and big returns.

X2, I love the HD800 so much that I have to sell the LCD-2 since it is not getting any head time.

I prefer the 700 over the 800 but I also still need to sell my LCD-2 :)

Holy crap, this GEC 6AS7G used to go for $300+, it may be the location of the seller and no feedback.

Warming up the WA22 in the sun. I am going to listen to the DT770 Pro LE 32 ohms some time this afternoon.

 

Thank you, @Ultrainferno.

Great shot, Clayton! Reminiscent of a calm Sunday morning before brunch. Let the Mimosa flow! 

post #23865 of 31052

incredible pics Clayton

 

i was hoping to be listening to my WA6SE today.

But somehow the post office attempted to deliver it to the wrong house.

How that happens i don't really know.

so the shipping went from "out for delivery"

to "notice left"

but i have no notice and have been literally sitting next to the door ALL FREAKING DAY

and then

THE BRONCOS LOST

 

this day started with so much promise.

now i just want to vomit

 

=(
