Now if only my new amp would arrive biggrin.gif

Your new amp will work better with the GZ37 ask Clayton.

I wonder if the WA22 can support the BL63? I'm thinking not, but a bunch showed up on evilbay and is giving me bad thoughts...

I know, that's what I understood and I will mainly use GZ33 and 37 but I just have to try the magic 596 at least for a little while.

GZ33 and GZ37 = Warm mids, rich sound, very nice top sparkle (it is closer to a shimmer), broad bass. Female vocals are very natural.

 

596 = Clean, almost ss sound. Bright mids and expansive bass. The highs can be a little dry. Female vocals a little forward.

 

Glenn's mono blocks started to settle in with its sound signature after about 400 hours. (A real guesstimate--I don't log hours.)

 

This is all with speakers. Zu Omen Standard 12-ohms speakers plugged into the 16 ohm speaker outs.

Looks like I'll be fan of the GZ series then. But I do wonder what you will think of the amp, C :)

VISUALLY your amp is stunning. Glenn's amp really looks like a powerhouse of sound. It is no surprise that all of those beautiful tubes combined with the genius of his amp design present the music with elegance and eloquence. You have a gem!

Yes, I'm really happy to get a "Glenn Stereo Integrated" as he calls it. But you have 3 gems already ;)

Now THAT is customer service!

I'd go with the second set. I actually own a few Mullard EZ80 and EZ81 but if I were to buy some RFT tubes I would buy from the second link that you posted.

thank you mister clayton i will do! one more question i have asked one or two people this already but ill ask you as well to be extra sure. 

 

do you think the ez80 will pair well with tung sol 5998 and jan sylvania 7308?

Hello everybody,

 

I have an issue. When I turn my setup "on" I can hear some background noise (static in my opinion).

 

Setup:

  • Flac songs
  • MediaMonkey
  • USB from motherboard (Desktop computer placed on the floor close to a plug)
  • Hi-Diamond USB2 cable
  • Audio-gd NFB 3.33
  • RCA interconnection cable (Audio-gd)
  • WA6-SE
  • LCD2, GS1000, DT880

 

So far I tried the amp alone and there is no noise, however as soon as I plug the RCA I can hear the static (with DAC "on" or "off"). Then I tried to plug the amp directly to the computer via a jack to RCA and the background appears to be worst. Therefore I think that the statics are coming from the computer but I am not sure. Could it be the quality of my plugs? I will try to use my other amp tonight (ALO PanAm) to see. Do you have any advices for me at this stage?

 

Thanks for your help!

You're welcome.

I can't answer that question because I've never owned those tubes. Ultrainferno has borrowed my WA2 and has been using it since last August. I use my WA2 with either a Mullard EZ80 or EZ81. I use RCA 6AS7 or G.E. 6AS7 and Mullard CV2493. I really enjoyed those tubes together. The RCA 6AS7 is warmer than the G.E. 6AS7. I like them both.
