post #28351 of 39159

Pulled the trigger on the WA7 Fireflies.. now the wait begins.

Yeah he explained a little better, something about a separate cathode and heater pins or something. So it probably would work but not ideally

So 5r4gy series, u52, 5u4g, 5u4gb, maybe 274b (he can test this for me he said), those will work.
Not gz34, gz37, 596, etc

 

Hi DG: Isn't the 596 a directly heated rectifier?

Car payment? Pfff forget that.

The 596 is a direct heated rectifier it is really the same as a 5U4GB

with the anode connections brought out the top.

The 422A will be great fot the OTL though. Hope to have it finished this weekend and ship next week.

Yeah he said 5u4gb will work.

He also mentioned something about the 596 having a separate cathode and the heater pins or something, not really sure what he meant but its diffferent as well as the gz34/gz37
post #28357 of 39159
Over the phone he basically said the same thing he said when i pmed him a while ago

" I designed the amp around the 5U4G directly heated rectifier tube and get the high voltage from a center tap on the filament supply for balanced current draw and lower noise. They 274B may work, but I haven't tried it yet. I don't recommend the GZ34/5AR4 and GZ37 because it has a separate cathode which is tied to one of the heater pins and won't work optimally in the Stratus. The 596 is the same way, so I don't recommend using it.

You can try the 5R4 because it is also a directly heated rectifier with slightly more forward voltage drop, which yields a little lower high voltage for the tubes."

What car payment???  Good old fashion way, I bring a paper bag to a car dealer and hand it over to the sales.  :cool:

Audiophiles don't need any car payments. We choose to drive $3,000 cars while owning $30,000 in audio gear. Pretty good trade-off to me. :P

Not me. It was at $110 with 10 seconds left to go. I put in $154 and boop, like that it went to $156.50 which is where it ended.

Shameless plug.  Thinking of selling some tubes since I sold the WA22.  The 6F8G with adapter does not fit well on WA5LE, they are almost touching the 300B. 

 

Tung Sol VT99, same as TS6SN7 BGRP

GEC 6AS7G (not 100% sure yet)

 

They are both NOS with original box, only tested when I received them.  Definitely less than an hour on them.  PM me if interested.

Awesome amp!  You won't be disappointed, I think.
