I made the jump and picked up a pair of 596s to audition in my WA5.  I'm assuming they need a base adapter for the wires to the filaments.  Do I get these from Woo?

Yes.

Wow what are those Driver tubes they are stunning! i would nearly buy them just as ornaments tongue_smile.gif

Do you know if jack can make the WA22 with a speaker pre-amp function? has anyone asked for this before?

The 6F8G adapters should be reversed they were made so the grid lead would be away from the rectifier tube

I know, that pic was taken when I first received the WA22 and the 6F8G tubes. Newbie mistake. I need to get my lazy ass off the couch and pm you on your amps.

Jack Woo & Glenn's are both very well made adapters. The pix on the page 1736 show Glenn's adapterd with the green wire. Glenn will ask you what it is being used for and where the octal 'key' (keys in the case for your WA5 and 2 rectifiers) is pointing. Jack's have a nice Teflon base. Both are winners!

I was thinking of getting the WA22 for my next amp and selling the wa2. The thing is i want to keep the pre-amp function so i asked jack could he customise the WA22 for this function. He got back to me today and said that he could but the pre-amp out would have to be xlr's. So naturally my question is can i get a XLR to RCA jack for connecting to my speakers? - i presume that is no problem but is there a hitch with it? Is going from balanced to unbalanced in a lead a good move or would i have to pair the WA22 amp with a balanced speaker set-up?

I have a modified WA22 which is used in this configuration, worked just fine.

X2, but wondering why the upgrade if your plan is to use it as a single-ended preamp the WA2 would seem like more of a plug n' play option.

Because i will also use it for headphones and i have my eye on some low impedance cans like audeze and dennen or maybe fostex at some stage. the only place i can go now with the WA2 is hd800.
