I think DG is hearing the output transformers in the 22 not the 6SN7

I feel that way with the other tubes in the wa22 as well. It feels like im not getting the most out of my 6as7 with the wa22 whereas the sound of the wa2 was changed alot more with both the 6dj8 and the 6as7 tubes, likewise, i felt i got more out of my rectifiers with my wa6-se. The wa22 seems to have a sound of its own and the tubes just kinda improve upon it

Hope you are keeping some 6SN7/6F8G tubes.  Most important, please let me know how the metal base GZ34 and a comparison 3DG4.  Only 3DG4 is supplied with the amp...  :beerchug:

Yeah that fs thread hasnt been replied to yet. Ill try and keep the grey glass rca since those were pretty good, also maybe sylvania 6f8g if they dont work.

Whats nice is the glenn amp seems to only use 1 tube, which is nice cause theyre easier to find and cheaper than pairs.

Yeah, my plan is going to use 6F8G tubes with Glenn's amp because when using on WA5LE, the 6F8G and 300B are almost touching each other.

3DG4 is a great rectifier to use and still cheap as chips  / built like a tank. Look out for any amp that uses them, most are done by DIYers.

I am waiting patiently for my WA22... 1 more day till Wed.  :)

I do hope this venture will be less rocky than the one with my taboo recently.

What happened with the Decware amp?  Sounds ominous.

i'll save koiloco some time and link to his comments in the taboo thread instead: http://www.head-fi.org/t/655788/the-decware-taboo-mk-111-appreciation-thread/1545#post_9869272

 

@koiloco: sorry to hear about your issues with the taboo. woo audio has great QC as far as i know so i dont think issues like that will happen. i hope you will enjoy your new wa22!

post #28272 of 30569

Thx jd007!  It must be just my luck.  I really liked the sound I was getting on my HE500 with the taboo.  Decware's customer service and communication were first rate.  Very nice people indeed.  When life slows down a bit, I will absolutely venture back into Decware's magic again.  It will be for speakers though, not HPs.

post #28273 of 30569

Thanks for the link.  I'm sorry about your past problems.  I can tell you that the WA22 is an amazing amp.  I simply love mine.

Hello Woo Audio amp owners smily_headphones1.gif

I'm currently in the process of creating a great home listening system, and now i have a question:

is the woo audio WA2 a pre-amp & headphone amp combo, or do i need a 2nd amp?

to clarify, this is my possible setup:

turntable-->WA2-->headphone amp-->headphones
turntable-->pre-amp-->WA2-->headphones
or can it just be
turntable-->WA2-->headphones

the last - turntable -WA2- headphones, it also works as a pre amp for speakers if you couple it with a power amp. I tried it with an integrated amp and it was not as nice as with a power amp.
