post #28306 of 39044

My WA22 just came in an hour ago.  So far, it's perfection.  No DSD playback noise issue with my TEAC UD 501 like I experienced with the taboo MKIII.  No hiss, no hum from either XLR or 1/4 TRS.  This thing is a tank.  Very impressed at this point.  Stock tubes are in for now.  After everything is checked out, I will swap in the upgraded  tubes.

What tube is that?
post #28311 of 39044
WE 422A! Mmmmmmmm
post #28312 of 39044

yes! it sounds incredible.... i think the WA22 sounds as good as GS-X right now. like i can't even describe, the feeling is even better than when i got the GEC 6AS7G, the bass is still a little too light on the WA22 for me though, but i can immediately tell that this tube is well worth the money spent, i can only imagine how good the WE 274B must sound.

 

the sound is so 3d and its like all in my head, its so cool!

DSG, at this point with Sophia rectifier and 7236 power tubes, I am not finding the WA22 to be light on bass at all.  Not even a touch and this is in comparison to the Emotiva Mini-x.  I am very happy with what I am getting.  Reading your post about the WA22 being light on bass with your T1 got me worried a bit.  :L3000:

less noticeable on my other headphones, but most on T1

You may like the WA22 with WE422A and TS BGRP or Brimar CV1988, they definitely have more bass.

Looks great! I just wish this amp's output was not halved when using single ended inputs...
