Thanks!

 

By the way, since Woo amps do not come with power cords, what do people use? Any preferred cords for the Woo amps? I wonder how much of a difference they can make. I've been using a cord from an old Arcam speaker amp, and also a more beefy one that came with the Burson HA-160 that I've used before.

I use a WireWorld Electra in my WA5-LE and really like it. I actually use them in all my gear with the exception of my McIntosh MC601. On those I use Silver Electra.

I use Wireworld Electra on all my gear except Shindo Labs...

Hey folks,

I'm considering what my next move should be and could use your experience.

I currently own a WA6 with GZ34 rectifier and stock 6DE7 drive tubes after my 7N7's died. It's paired with an LCD-2 and I was wondering how worthwhile an upgrade to a WA7 might be, or maybe another amp in his collection not more than ~$1000.

Thanks for the help!

I think you would be better off with a WA6-SE if you felt the need to change.  That amp with the LCD-2 is outstanding.

When I saw Jack Wu last week I told him that that may be their best combination - certainly for the price.

I apologize if I missed any discussion, but does anyone have experience with the Philips 5R4GYS sold by Upscale Audio?

WA7 is a great sounding amp for both low and high impedance cans. If you don't want to tube roll then the WA7 is a good choice. If you delight in tube rolling the WA6-SE will be a better choice.

How much different is the WA6-SE from the WA6 actually? I understand it has a decoupled power supply, will this help with the faint noise I hear when turning the power on my WA6 past 11 o'clock?
Also, if I were to sell the WA6, what is the going rate, and how exactly would I ship this heavy monster?

Hugeeee difference to my ear. The SE is much more versatile at driving a variety of HPs well. Quite a bit more power, too.
