Now that M Coupe has gotten taken care of, I'm going to keep the three singles I've got remaining. I always wanna have at least two on hand. I may be looking for a matched pair all over again soon, though. Jack Wu has rekindled our dialogue over the WA5. I still have to stuff tea tins and save :rolleyes: if this is to happen.

 

Our talks have been over specs, which is why I haven't upped and bought the thing already. No no, my Woo gotta be Spec'd out; Blacked out:veryevil: 

 

Meanwhile, anyone want to buy 3 vintage stereo receivers and a house plant?

:popcorn:

A Group Buy is what I intend. But, in the event I fail, I'll simply turn to you for my next rec... :p

I tried a group buy with GEC 6080 and 6AS7G many moons ago but at the time everyone think is too expensive for a tube that they never heard before. I should have keep more, sold two pair of 6AS7G to fund the beta22.

I'm willing to skip to goodies inside and go with standard parts - to be modified at a later date - but requested Siemens C3g drive tubes to supplant the 6SN7s and K1K Ouputs on both WA5 monoblocks with 3-pin XLR connectors.

 

But extra time, money and testing is involved, which is why I elected to revisit the purchase and bought the other kit.

 

Their current WA5 monoblocks for those who may not have seen them the first time around:

In order to save money (and stop eating Ramen everyday), if I'm asked to purchase the standard WA5, so be it! :wink:

Ramen is good. What I meant is the mrs will kill me if buy it...

Happy

 

Yeah... I need to be considerate as well. Better to appreciate few gears with peace of mind. Than to play with more gears around a cold shoulder.

Come to think of it, we are lucky to have all these toys. When I grow up, I can never afford any of these.

I have a deep appreciation for life and the precious moments that fill it. I remember the day I took delivery of my Woo. Despite lusting after the '5,' the '6 SE' was the only amp on my mind that weekend. Learning to live in the moment is a wonderful thing. 

 

Yesterday afternoon, I enjoyed listening to my iPod over tea - nothing else mattered in that moment, either. Luckily, I just happened to have :D great songs and quality Jasmine Pearls.

Yes, the venerable C3g tube.  I'm sitting on a stash of C3m tubes (20v heater) myself.  What mode (pentode or triode) are you planning to run to drive the 300bs?

After passing on the both the WA234 and WA5 monoblocks, I eventually decided to purchase the Yamamoto A-09S. And it uses the C3m. After working out a deal with the North American distributor for Yamamoto (was also buying a DAC and Preamp), I made the 11th hour decision to go with Shindo Labs.

 

If I return to a custom Woo, it will be the C3g drive tubes. And either the EML or Takatsuki Glass in the Power slots.

I've actually seen Shindo Labs amps on display but have never heard one. I can't wait until you get to listen to yours so that you can report back. When do you think that you'll get to give them a listen?

If you do return to the Woo custom you may want run pentode mode with the C3g as it will give higher gain and still very low distortion (I believe the C3m will give even higher gain.)  From my research people prefer the C3g/C3m in pentode mode with 300b tube stating that it gives a more dynamic presentation due to the increased gain factor (something to discuss with Jack Wu.)

 

BTW, how is the Shindo coming?  Did you receive your silver interconnects yet?
