How do people feel about the knobs on their gear, do you think you can review it based solely on your knob turning experience?

Because this guy reviews gear based solely on the knobs. notsureifserious.jpg

Also reviewed hands on. Buttery Spread.

I'm going to fondle my WA2 now.

lol, funny thread though.  Minimal attention to my gears' knobs (as long as they lasted for the initial month or so).  

 

I don't touch my Woo's knobs, set once and go; on/off via a toggle switch on the power distributor.

Oo, excellent reviews...especially the videos. I really like the knob on my WA3. It offers a smooth solid feel with no wobble, although hard to rotate with one finger. Hmmmm, mmm, oooh, ok, the texture of the finish feels nice too. Enough of this knob-sense....

Hmmm, seems we're speeding toward "Fetish Friday" inside the thread.

I guess I need to deoxit my WA22's volume knob, it's giving me some crackle lately...

Not going to happen.  I just wish I could hear the mysterious Takatsuki 300B-- or even find out where to order a pair. 

 

 

i'm not so sure on the royal princess.  i don't have any of them but, i've talked to a lot of guys(but they're all speaker guys) and most of them haven't heard of it(the tube i meant) and the few who heard it didn't like it much.  as for western electric, not easy to get one pair.  plus the price.... those guys did suggest me to get some psvane we300b.  they told me it's the cheapest and easiest way to get something close to the original. and they do sound nice to my ears.

My WA22 is doing the same thing. Any tips on the right way to take care of it? Thanks.

I've been fortunate - the knob on my Woo has always exhibited silence when turned; smooth like French butter.

post #24820 of 30529

For me, I would crank the volume knob a few times before powering up my WA22. No more crackles for me.

SO, Are you really thinking on spending that kind of money in a headphones amp? That is a lot more of what I paid for my new McIntosh MC601 monoblock amplifiers.eek.gif

dt880smile.pngYou no joking, baby! Yes, I gave it serious consideration... until Monday morning. I like the MC601 blocks, by the way. But Monday morning I purchased a Sansui G-22000 and now feel feel all warm wink.gif and cozy. I'm now back to considering the WA5 - providing they're still offeredevil_smiley.gif in Black - or the Yamamoto A-09S.

 

Over the weekend, you're gonna have to share some updated pix (via PM) from inside your listening room.

There are other amps which use the same type tubes and more but cost less.

Definitely.

 

Every single time.

 

Similarly it feels like the end of something special when I turn it off and the tubes slowly dim.
