Congrats and nice stand. biggrin.gif

Tubes usually cost more than the amp. mad.gif my tubes buy list for WA5LE, EML 300B, WE 300B reissues, and EML 5U4G and now you got me thinking about WE 422A.

the WE 422A puts the EML to shame. its like when u compared sophia 274b to the stock shuggy that woo gives you.

 

they're still cheap too! 800 a pair whereas the eml is like 500-550 a pair, i think the extra 250$ is worth it

Lol, that was the only space left at the office that my HP cable could reach.  It's at home now.

Thx for clarifying this.  Any recommendation for driver tube in WA22?

Nope.  I'm a WA5LE owner.  

 

I've often wondered if the WA22 would be on the short list of best HD800 amps.  I've read lots of theories about the push-pull amps being an ideal amp for the 800.  I will never know, but I'm curious.
