Ever look into a vintage receiver?  I use a Marantz 2265B with tape loop out to WA22.

post #23975 of 29779

I have a couple. But i've never had great success using the tape loop with another amp on them. Its like it congests the sound or something.  hard to put my finger on.  Thats always been with tape loop from aux or tape in.  Have never tried the phono from tape loop

I'd go with a Lagavullin 16-year if you can....

If your receiver has an independent Preamp section and independent Amp section, you should hear better sound using them instead of Tape Loop In/Out to your Woo.

I tried the tape loop for the phono and i get nothing.  It works with other sources but not for phono.  not sure how that works or doesn't i guess.

 

The marantz sounds good with teh LCD2.  Just not a good as the 6SE.  I'll just save for a phono stage.  I'll check out those mentioned.  The cambridge azur ones caught my eye as well

Woo guys: has anyone here spent any time comparing the WA3 to the Bottlehead Crack in particular with the HD-650's? I'm going back and forth on the two and wanted to hear some opinions on the sound of the two compared to one another. 

post #23981 of 29779

Who has purchased the WA7 (Fireflies) and any impressions on it if you have? Also who is in possession of other new products like the WDS-1 and the WTP-1? I'd like to hear about the new Woosies.

post #23982 of 29779

Pre-ordered a WA7, and interested in picking out some tubes to play around with.  I know little about how tube compatibility works though, does anyone know if these would be compatible?

post #23983 of 29779

Those look to be compatible. Since you pre-ordered the WA7 you saved $200. It has since jumped from $799 to $999. Good move on your part. :-)

There's a 596 for sale in the For Sale boards for $100 USD

If that's the actual price I'm doing another group sale cool.gif
