Both are great tubes.  The 596 brought more detail to my ear.  But the EML offered more bass punch, which matches the HD800 better, for me, anyway.

Though, on a lower-end Woo, the USAF-596 brought more detail, depth and dynamics over the EML glass for me. The latter really is a fine rec, however.

Cheers!

The 596 are very hard to fine now, it was very limited even when I started looking for it.

***shameless plug***. I have an EML 5U4G mesh for sale soon.

I imagine on a bass rich headphone, like the LCD-3, the pairing is unbeatable.

Did you check with Jack Woo? That's where I got mine along with the adapter for it.
post #27397 of 31880
I did not check with Jack...I did not see it on his website so I assumed he did not have it.

Thanks for the tip!
post #27398 of 31880

:evil: Never assume. I personally sold him his last dozen or so back in January. I believe he has 1-2 left... and good luck!

post #27399 of 31880

Oh well..no dice from Jack.  He is a really nice guy but only had his personal quantity left.  I cannot fault him for not wanting to sell them.  I will keep looking.  Thanks again for the tip though...it was worth a shot.

post #27400 of 31880
Yeah i thought he sold out a while ago. I guess he just keeps a pair for testing on his amps and whatnot.
post #27401 of 31880

The matched pair I just bought back from him in May, I just sold last Friday. I may have three to four remaining. Will likely gift one for year-end holidays, sell one and attempt to keep two.

 

But M Coupe, I've got you firm in mind...

i might be looking for more mighty 596's soon ;) 

post #27403 of 31880
Thanks Silent One!
post #27404 of 31880

you have a couple more Silent?

post #27405 of 31880

:blink: Me? I wouldn't know what a '596' was if it were lookin' me dead in the eye! Perhaps, if I post a pix of my listening room, someone could help me identify it.
