Better to go back to the stock tubes and sell it at $2200ish.  I think that one will sit there for a while.

The way I read the listing is that the amp has the upgraded caps in addition to the average tubes you've mentioned.  The cap upgrade is like $1200 from Jack these days, in which case the price would not be so bad.

It looks like a WA5 LE that s adv on ebay not the WA5

1959 triple mica 6n5p..... Works well in the WA3. Initial listen with no break in - signature is a bit sterile and dynamics are lively.

Yup. Since I'm in the market for a '5' I pointed out it the amp listed (LE) was the wrong version for me. By the way, how's the ride with your '5' coming along, as the clock turns?

The WA5 is going well. its the best headphone and speaker amp for high efficiency speaker sI used and the tubes are fantastic. I am using the 6F8G tungsol in and they sound terrific. I am done buying any amplifiers anymore. i will always have review amps in the house but the WA5 is by far my favorite amplifier for headphones. it plays them all.

Hopefully this is the right thread to posting this question: does anyone know if the Woo Audio WEE energizer works with a Pass Labs XA100.5?  I already have a speaker set up (with the aforementioned amps) and am looking to get the Stax O2 Mk1 phones.  While I ponder my amp options, I wanted to get the Wee and use it with my pass amps which operate in Class A for the first few watts,

 

Any thoughts on this?

 

Thanks

Anil

This review says it won't work with Pass amps because the WEE ties the grounds together internally and will damage bridged amps: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/woo-audio-wee-electrostatic-headphone-energizer
