I've finally decided to pull the plug for the Woo Audio WA2, I chose it over the WA6SE cause I like the sweeter tube sound, and also the fact that I can use it as a preamp as well. Currently I have a Musical Fidelity M1DAC, do you guys think it would be a good pairing with WA2, or should i probably get a new DAC? Also, do you guys have any experience in pairing the WA2 with power amps? I'm thinking a tube preamp and a SS power amp would be a very good match. I have a pair of B&W CM-1s. ManyThanks.

+1, i find the RCA 6DR7 to be really good as well. a  bit more gain than 6FD7 and a tubier sound.

 

My current favorite tube combo for LCD2 is 6DR7 witth 596 I don't get to listen to Sophia much after 596 :)

 

anyone can recommand a good dac to go with WA6SE? I  don't get to have good luck with M1DAC (second defective one which is going back again for refund or replacement)

Even though I got a decent deal and great service, I don't think this dac is meant to be mine lol. my budget would be less than 6~800. I was thinking about Yulong D18, Should I get a cheap dac and save up for W4S DAC2 or Oppo 105 or other expensive dac. I think I can still get replacement M1DAC though(third time's a charm maybe???tongue.gif)

I see... Dunno.. Is that a possibility that my amp has a defect or something? I am completely new with audio world. As really, the brightness can cause an unpleasant feeling sometimes. I'll try the tube you suggesting. :)

I'll take two 2399s! I have a few pair of TS5998 now and I like them, so if you are serious about these tubes being TS2399, then count me in and put me down for two.

How does one join in on the Tung-Sol 2399 group buy? I would be interested in two. Are these NOS, a clone pilot run from some factory or ??
post #24100 of 29790

Is the 2399 the same as the Tung Sol 5998? Sorry new to tubes and still learning. But I would like to get a single Tung Sol 5998.

@ Ultrainferno: I say we move to promote/pre-order the next 30 days to get an indication. Even someone like me sitting out on the curb with no use whatsoever for the '2399' (not true) might even jump in to push sales forward.

I'll call the tube guy next week and get back to you with price etc.

@Bob & Ben: The Chatham 2399 = Tung Sol 5998.

If the price is right, I may be in.  :)

Ready for the snow??? angry_face.gif As much as I like the TS5998, I prefer the TS7236 a little more.
