also surprised how transparent they sound. i thought they where gonna be grainy compared to 5998/GEC/7236, but they're even better than 5998/7236 in transparency alone, though not quite at the level of the GEC.

 

now i just need to buy a pair of WE 421A

 

Congrats on the recovery. You banged out that new order so fast, smoke had begun to emerge from your keyboard! Just another day:biggrin: for a world class gamer...

i am seeing this is true.  very expensive.

 

thats why i might try to find an amp like WA22 that has the same tubes , but uses 6922 instead, i think i'd like that more.

 

5U4gs are expensive, i have a good variety to roll, and theres plenty more good ones out there to try out. i'm gonna try and buy a western electric 422A and a GEC U52 soon.

 

i think i have every 6AS7G thats decent except the WE421A which is on my to-buy list as well.

 

anyways, looks like to have a good stock means spending at least the price of the amp in tubes, if not more. depending on whether you want the best or just decent tubes.

Be sure to let us know your ongoing impressions of the Bendix graphite columns, as they are a very interesting tube (sonically.)

Well, the omakasa is so good that the WA5LE can wait an extra day.

Hello everybody:)

 

Just got my WA2 tubed, heated up and pushing music to T1's and my ears:D Glorious stuff sofar! Had it sitting on my table for a week all alone and tubeless. Was excruciating to say the least. But now all is goooooood...

 

Got a pile of tubes and more is on the way. Waiting also for a DAC to get most out of it. Tubegymnastics coming up!

Well you should let me know if there is. ^_^

Here it is...

Wow. Don't tell me that I've got to jump on theWA5 bandwagon as well. They look fantastic. I see Jack is shipping them in wooden crates again. For a time he switched to shipping them in cardboard boxes. The crates are better. :)
