Sophia princess rectifier, 7236 upgrade tubes from Jack.  The drivers are still stock.  I am looking for some good driver tubes to get a fuller bottom end and maybe a touch more air in the mid.

 

ah yeah the sophia, good tube.

 

i wish i got to roll around more drivers. i liked my rca grey glass 6sn7, the 6f8g where nice but noisy.

I don't think Sophia will give WA22 justice at all.  I sold it soon after I acquired EML and other NOS tubes.  The stock drivers tubes are totally crappy, the overall sound presentation and signature will change after the amp break in and with better tubes.

 

As far as you questions on dual rectifiers on WA5LE, I do not have any issues.  The few incidents I heard and knew about it is we start rolling more power demanding drivers tubes, eg. ECC32, then the Sophia and EML cannot handle it.  The 596/5U4GB, will handle more demanding drivers tubes better.

I think is more of your adapters grid wire positions on the noisy 6F8G, they are definitely not as quiet as normal 6SN7.

The WA22 will be fully burn in about 250ish hours.

btw i was looking at my 7236 tubes. does anyone know if jack still sells sylvania 7236?

 

i just noticed how different the sylvania and tung sol 7236 look. the plates are like completely different and the tung sol 7236 are taller too.

post #28506 of 30571
I think http://www.vacuumtubes.net still has some at reasonable prices. That's where I got my last one from.

My 2 cents and I think MH's too if I remember correctly, the TS are better in every way.  Save your money for BL63.

ah ok yeah thats the only place i knew had them at a good price.

 

just curious.

 

didn't need any yet though. i have 2 pairs of the sylvania and 2 tung sol. i was worried though cause i know the sylvania had been used quite a bit before.

Agreed on the TS vs. Slyvanias. :smile:

Not an exact replacements but I'm very interested in them too.

 

Did you look into ECC32? :veryevil:

post #28512 of 30571
The ECC32s are my favorite tubes when I can substitute them for 6SN7s.

On WA5?  Choose the rectifiers carefully, dannie01 has his EML died prematurely because of this.  Soon after the ECC32 dies too.

No, on my DAC.
