USB. I'd like to try it with a different DAC at some point to see if the DAC is a weak link but all I have on hand at the moment is the CLAS SOLO db. My initial stuffy ear impression is that it's a pretty good DAC. But again have had minimal time with it and the tube amp is such a change from the coldness of a solid state amp with 800s that I'm not sure what is DAC and what is amp yet.

Tube questions. Someone made me the price of €75 (roughly $99) for 2 x 6dj8 Bugle Boys plus a replacement Siemens 6922 including shipping. It is listed as NOS but he doesn't have a tester or any values on them. As I see many different prices and different types of these Bugle Boys on Ebay I am uncertain what to do. Is it an ok price that he is charging or should I look elsewhere? Elsewhere would be where? Does anybody know a good European source for tubes?

seems like a pretty fair price.

Definitely do so, it most certainly is a better amp than the price suggests by a long margin.

Hi,

 

I bought a WES a little under a year ago plus a pair of Stax SR-009. I bought it with the stock tubes plus the upgraded ones. I have never tried anything else, so now I want to do some tube rolling. I know I could read all the replies but it is impossible for me to read all of them without giving myself a headache.

 

I am after tubes that sound romantic, and soft on the ears, preferably a warm sound.

 

Cost is not a problem. If you recommend some of the higher priced ones, I won´t be discouraged.

 

Please do help me on the matter. I know a lot of you guys know  tons more than I do.

 

Thanks for your time

Christian

I see a lot of happiness here with the woo owners and that is part of what prompted 

me to purchase a WA6se. I purchased at the San Francisco show with stock tubes

and listened quite a bit there on there source. At that time I purchased the 6gl7's and 

the Sophia to have delivered at a later date. During that waiting period I purchased 

the gz34 mullard, 6ew7, 6fd7's and they all pretty much arrived at the same time. To 

make a long story short there is not one set of tubes in different combos that doesn't 

make noise above half volume,12o'clock. Is this the case with woo amps  and if so is

everyone just satisfied to have it this way? I have had tube amp and preamp in my system

for 25+years and never had to listen to this much noise. If I sound ticked it is because 

I am, hoping you folks can offer some info to calm me down. Thanks

the WA6-SE is kinda a noisy amp, but the noise, if its mostly starting at 12 o clock, it shouldn't be a problem, since no headphones i have ever have to be turned up that loud. theres just alot of gain on the WA6-SE. 

 

for me, thats around where the noise starts, but its dead silent at the volume ranges i would be listening at. and when musics playing i don't hear it either.

 

the WA2 on the other hand, is completely silent, zero noise everywhere.
