Wei Wu been building tube amplifiers for over 40 years.

Yes and they stepped up to  the next level. The LCD2.2. can handle 15 Watts and the more power they get the more open they sound. Its all good. The HE6 is really good on this amplifier as I knew it would be.  So its really the last amp I will need to play music with.

I dunno just pondering. If i do decide on the WA22 it will be next year. there are one or two people over here interested in buying my WA2. I asked jack about the speaker option for WA22 and he said that it would cost another 350 dollars. Now i'm thinking that brings the price up to 2345 - should i just go for the WA5-LE then? I will have to think about it a bit more but i do know one thing - I WANT SOME LOW IMPEDANCE CANS AND I HAVE TO HAVE THE AUDEZE'S! I could go for WA6-LE like you suggested before but i don't like the look of it and i know that it would bother me. 

 

Hopefully at the London meet in October i will get to hear a WA22. I would love to hear a WA5 but i know that's a bit much to ask for. Also there might be a few other amp's that will impress. Maybe i could audition a solid state amp with a pre-amp option for WA2?

You can easily have that shelf built at TapPlastics. I have had similar selfs and amp covers made to order there in the past.

EDIT: It suddenly dawned on me that you're in the UK!  I have not found a similar type store/vendor in the UK.  If you track one down please let me know.

 

Sorry, I was a bit rushed on the train responding... here is a link: http://www.tapplastics.com/

 

If you visit a store with the dimensions of what you want to end up with they will work with you to custom build it.

You're safe!  I'm a yank just trying to find his way around this place.  I'm lucky if I can find the ferry to Ireland!

i am thinking of buying a pair of power tubes soon for the WA2. I'm looking for the darkest one's out there if anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate it. I have tung sol 5998 but I want to hear what the T1's sound like with a really dark tube.

post #26096 of 33310

Dark tubes include a lot the 6080s.  The RCA 6080 leans to the dark side.  Also, the GE 6AS7GA tube is quite warm and lush.  The RCA 6AS7G is also quite romantic and warm.

post #26097 of 33310

i have RCA 6080, the RCA 6AS7G are better. i find the 6080s to be muddy and harsh. didn't listen to them too long unfortunately, just never liked them. the GE 6AS7GA is ok, i find alot of these tube to lack the refinement the better tubes offer though

 

also remember drivers can be darker, like some of the mullards (CV2492 i believe?)

 

im trying to find a pair of the GEC 6AS7G, but all the ones on ebay are ridiculously overpriced, like 300$ a tube.

what are the differences between the two brands of 6AS7G? what does the GEC offer over RCA. the RCA are very cheap so i think these will be my backup. i look forward to rolling them on the WA2 with T1.

RCA is crappy spare and stock tube. GEC is legendary audiophile power tube, highly sought after and extremely rare. The best of the best. They make the wa2 sound like a $5k amp
post #26100 of 33310

I think you're being a little harsh on the RCA.  It's a fine tube.  Very warm and seductive.  It just doesn't have the resolution as the TS 5998 or GEC.
