INTERESTING....

 

Silent, you there? =p

^ i think they're basically the same then. would be nice to hear from an expert though.

 

i know theres some impressons on 6EM7 in the WA6-SE/WA6 discussion thread, and they described the tube the same way i described the 6GL7, so maybe they're extremely similar. their construction looks the same too. 

 

it seems the other WA6-SE tubes are similar (6EW7, 6FD7, 6CY7, 6DN7, 6FQ7, 6DR7, 6DE7, and a few others out there...). there was a post somewhere that also talked a bit about each of them, no-1 seems to have found a perfect WA6-SE tube yet though. (except maybe silent one with his 6sn7's tongue_smile.gif)

 

i might get a pair of 6CY7 and 6DE7 soon to try them out as well, they're fairly cheap (like 30$ shipped gets me a pair of each)

 

Yeah, we had the storied mid 1940's Tung-Sol Black Glass Round Plates. wink.gif

Well I just upped the game on my WA5LE.  I picked up a pair of Sylvania 6SN7's.  Not even broken in yet and  they jumped right to the top of the power tube list.  They feature all the bass and punch of the RCA 6SN7-- keep the bass better focused, while retaining the top end-- clean and transparent.

 

So if you were keeping track:

 

1) Sylvania 6SN7 ($300)

2) RCA 6SN7 ($160

3) PSVane 181-TII ($345)

4) Tung Sol 6SN7 (came with the WA5)

 

A bunch of my favorite test sides were harmed in the making of this mini-review.

I know I'm going to buy a Royal Princess at some point-- if only to settle the EML Mesh / Sophia question once and for all for myself... But I want a pair of LCD's first. The Western Electric pair is now out of my league price-wise for a tube. Well over $2k for a pair. Not going to happen.  I just wish I could hear the mysterious Takatsuki 300B-- or even find out where to order a pair.

Ever have the moons just align....right tubes, right warmup, right mood, right soundtrack? My head just imploded under the power of Woo and the Dark Knight film score. OMG, I'm speechless. @3:25

Counting my pennies 'til the day atsmile.gif... Will love to hear your choice on which 300B's.

 

Have any of you received Woo's Evite Invitation to the NY Audio Show this weekend?  So upset that it's on the other coast...no love for the west coast mad.gif

I did. But have scheduling conflicts. I have a potential member, two or three that's going to screen the WA234 for me.
