The T90 doesn't work for some ears, but for those that it does, the WA7 allow them to sound stellar.

The T90 and the WA7 have a very special synergy. They are made for each other.

Whew!  Buring in an amp for 500 hours is a long time, darned black gate caps!  This thing is quite an upgrade from my ASL mg-head OTL III.  Anyhow, looking for tube recommendations.  After combing head-fi, I have come up with a short list.  Man, Head-fi is a great resource.  I could use a little more deep bass and top end extension.  The rectifiers will be either the sophia 247b or the eml 5u4g meshies.  There have been reports of fair quality control on the 596's. For the driver tubes the Psvane cv181 t2's look inviting.  For the 300b's, goodness they are expensive, the sophia mesh or the eml 300b's look good.  I would rather not get the psvane 300b's as they lack the inviting glow of the mesh tubes.  Any comments?

Get both EML 5U4G and 300B mesh, EAT 300B is better but also cost more. Driver tube, the Brimar CV1988 of TS BGRP.

Time to re-load!

 

Oh I've definitely re-loaded, just not with Sennheisers... wink.gif

Haha maybe a Colorflied HD800, wouldn't mind acquiring a fresh pair at some point but there quite a few things ahead of it on the old wish list...

Thanks!  Wow, the EAT's are expensive! I have never seen anyone, in all my hours surfing head-fi rate the Genalex golden Lion 300b's in the wa5, any comments?.  They are available on TubeDepot for $330.  My headphones are the Sennie HD 650's, which I think they are a little thin and veiled.  I would like to upgrade the 'phones too, open type.  The HD 800's have the reputation of being "thin", the LCD 2 of being bass master's, but a little dark.  Many peeps state the HE-6 is just "sublime" with the wa5, especially through the K1000 jack. My Ultrasone pro-900's don't seem to jive with the wa5, but go well with less expensive amps (ie headphone out on my macbook), and they hurt the top of my head after a while. Choices, choices. Deep bass please.  L3000.gif .  Hopefully with more experience with my wa5, I will be able to return the advice favors to ya'll.   I haven't listened to my main rig since I got the wa5, my Thiels feel neglected (great for my wife lately, as the master bedroom is right next to my audio room).

Silent one, I look forward to seeing your next avatar.

Just so you know, regular.guy, if you ever see me using an ALL BLACK avatar, I'm temporarily protesting, on strike or seeking solitude. biggrin.gif My inability to buy a Black WA5 can bring out this avatar as well. ph34r.gif

the golden lion, never tried on my wa5 but i heard it from other spearker amps.  not really think or thick.  very average.  sure better than the stock tubes. 

HD650, a little thin.... what are your tubes combination? 

and ultrasone, they hate woo, or wa5 at least.  i tried my hfi-780, signature pro and ed8.  never sound good at all.

How in the world do nerdy looking guys get some the most beautiful women? Piano lessons help, I guess.
