 I have a decent tester here I can check my part of 'our' tubes, I think I have used this seller before and all was good, feed back is also good.

I has a guy with 100 percent feedback lie to me this week about tubes he kept saying were shipped. I never got the tubes and kept asking for tracking number. He did not have a tracking number and once I told him I was opening an ebay case he refunded the money so I couldn't leave negative feedback. He never shipped the tubes because if he did I would had them by now.  So sometimes 100 percent feedback's go bad, as they did in my case. Great you can test tubes.

His communication has been excellent so am happy to give him the benefit of others doubt for now, if they don't turn up I will let ebay / pp deal with it but I have had very few packages go missing from ebay, generally find them to be be good. I have no reasons atm to doubt he is anything but a good / honest seller.

i took delivery of my wa6 on monday and finally had a bit of a listen at work today with the grado rs1i's i bought to pair with it, although i have not had a good listen yet i am happy with what i have experienced so far playing material like Roberta Flack, Eric Clapton, Kings of Convenience etc....

 

because i got the amp second hand it came with some extra tubes including the princess rectifier and some others which sound very nice indeed.

 

all in all i am glad i moved my Lyr on and replaced it with this new setup although I do miss my DT880's that were an awesome match with the Lry.

 

i guess I now know what you are all carrying on about when it comes to woo audio because the sound really does make you go w000 :)

Ummmmm, not sure what to say yet.....but it's going to be something good. smily_headphones1.gif :

I tried to get adapters from Woo but the demand was too low for them to do a 1 off adapter with this pinout. If enough demand pops up and they do a run of these, I'd be in for a pair. smily_headphones1.gif

also a quad of ts 6f8g for only 250$, might be scam though. thinking of picking up a pair though of the other legit ones (edit: grabbed a pair as one of my last tube purchases for a while) wink.gif
