now the imaging, wow, this amp really produces a holographic palpable image, really lifelike in many ways, realistic.

DSG,  My WA22 is coming next week.  What's your impression of the WA22 driving HE500?

He500 can be great with wa22, but tubes matter. I like some bloom =)

Dubs, selling the amp shouldn't be a problem as it's a highly OEM modded WA22 and anyone looking for that model should (and I recommend) snatch it up!  "Hats off" to you for stepping out of the comfort zone and chasing improvement.  I think you found what you where looking for in various sonic categories of the WA22, but also realized/ validated what matters most to YOU!  Thanks for sharing your valued experiences with the forum.  :)  Now, find me some inexpensive GEC 6AS7Gs (NOS match and Balanced please) and rejoin the WA 2 club (we miss you!)  :wink_face:

Thanks!

Im probably gonna get wa2 back. Though im also working out a potential stratus purchase., either way ill still get wa2 since i need a amp for all my 6as7g. The GEC 6AS7s were VERY good with wa2, a step up from the tung sol 5998, and my 6922s werent even fully upgraded yet

If i rebuy wa2, extra money will go towards a pair of grey siemens cca and a pair of amperex pq whites or if im lucky enough to find a pair, the pinched waist d getter 6922s

Oh and a pair of we421a:D

Like this--eek!


This is it

This is ware I was getting the 596 tubes from when I was selling them with adapters.

I shouldn't be posting this but Richard is a good guy.

Let's all send him mails asking him for 596 tubes :rolleyes:

post #28087 of 29777

And you made it famous Glenn!

I do prefer the RK60, I wonder why all those Woo Audio guys don't like that tube. Or maybe they never tried?

for a guy who dont like the 596 tube you seem to want more. LOL

post #28090 of 29777

It would be fun just to spend a day searching through all that stuff!

I was being Ironic as I am convinced lots of people reading this thread will actually mail the poor guy asking about the 596.

I'm a RK60 & 5U4G & GZ37 lover ;)

I am surprised that nobody really wants the RK-60 nobody asked for adapters

and the RK-60 can be gotten for $8.00. and it looks as nice as the 596

post #28093 of 29777

the tube doesn't seem easy to find. and not many impressions of it.

Can it be a substitute for the 5U4G like the 596?

Exactly!
