If only I could remember what euphonic really means. For now, I take comfort in knowing that my WA22 is the most of it. wink_face.gif

I'll wait until I get my turntable and Lambdas back from the shops, then it will be listening time!

@sid-fi.. Yep. Can't see why I would want to sell mine.. Only for perhaps to try a pair of Stax;) then again there are LCD-3's to upgrade to;)

I'll have to try it again at some point, if I don't like it any better I will put it in the to be sold pile. It's a very nice tube if you're into that kind of sound, it reminds me of the effect of the GEC 5U4G power tubes to some extent--which I wasn't crazy about either--but some really covet that kind of sound. Come to think of it I should combine the GECs with it and the HD800 to see if I get launched into outer space of something!

Thank you. I decided to put my paws on the EML 5u4gM. But somebody told me that the metal base Philips GZ34 tubes are much better than the EML's. I'm just wondering.....

I put this over in the I-20 thread also: I've been working to suppress stray noise, induced noise, and power supply noise in my WA3+ and noticed a weird phenomena between the I-20 and the Woo. When I touch just the tip of my headphone plug (HD 550) to the ring of the jack on the woo I can hear a faint 'snick' and 120Hz background on the level of bearly perceptible. This is with power off on the Woo. If I disconnect the I-20, it vanishes. It also goes away when I unplug the wall wart for the I-20. I'm assuming this is some sort of ground loop or PS noise from the wart. Tried all kinds of plugology and it persists. The part I found really weird is I can hear it with only one pole of the headphones connected. Thoughts?

My WA3 is the most sensitive and finicky amp I've ever experienced.  I can get ground loop hums if I even touch the table it's sitting on.  If I'm wearing my Fostex orthos, and I move within a few feet of the amp, I get all kinds of crackles and hums.  If I move away, the sounds go away.

 

It's a strange amp indeed.
