that sansui is serious. i love that vintage look. someone had an old school marantz receiver posted on a thread not too long ago and it was one of the nicest pieces i have seen

 

think it was this

Thanks. At 92 pounds, watch your foot though...

Woo is sure making a nice profit on the 596. Luckily I have one "on loan" from Clayton smile.gif

Now if only my new amp would arrive biggrin.gif

Not really. I sold him his current stock and I didn't get them too cheaply. Still, in 2010 I bought a 'Princess' from WooAudio for $175; in 2011 the EML 5U4G for $260. All things considered... the '596' still has room for inflation. biggrin.gif

 

But, before I let my Woo brothers and sisters down, I best get back to hunting them down!

I've spent a couple of hours last night doing that, but nothing yet

Dumb question but, Sophia Princess are still in production right?
post #25344 of 31351
Yep. Ask Jack Wu!

I have one, I was just wondering if it's NoS, which it doesn't appear to be

And Woo is selling it back to us at a profit? Should have left them at "home" amongst the little people. ;)

Ultra- it is not "on loan." It is all yours to keep forever and ever. I wonder when the next "596" will be uncovered.

A handful of members backed out. To prevent a collapse, I brought in a new investor to close the deal. So, the original little people really were taken care of. If I find a clean lot of NOS USAF-596's (perhaps, w/boxes) of 20 to 100, I may broker the investment.

Does it come with warranty?

Just kidding. thank you again :)

 

Yeah, I was wondering that too. I mean, I'm sure Glenn can find another great tube we don't know about yet...

Of course it comes with a warranty which also includes (at no charge!) a periodic site visit to make certain that it is working at its optimum (bias) level in your amp. So I'd say the next site visit is in 3 months?
