Hey Frank,

 

Don't keep us in suspense. How are those monos sounding compared to the WA5? Do tell!  :D

Definitely tubes, tubes, tubes.  They all matter, but I think the drivers make the most impact.  I'm liking the TS 6F8G drivers right now, but others out there have other opinions.  I agree that it makes the HD800 sound great.  I am loving my 22 with the LCD-X as well.

Jack told me and Frank I at the philly meet that you need a balanced cable and balanced source. Or was it just a balanced source.....

LOL The suspense is killing me too. In time. I am still setting  the speakers up and dialing them in and they are not in the same system as the WA5. One is in my den and the other in the new room. Their will be comparison in the review in January issue of Positive Feedback. I will keep you guys posted as I get some more hours on that speaker.

Would you kindly tell me if these floor standing cabinets simply house the speakers or are they in fact the speakers? Because when I clicked on your link, the speakers look much smaller and inside their own cabinets.

I still need to install the three spikes and get them up off the ground, and they will tilt back. They sound magnificent. I am looking for some room treatments to go in the room and also oderd a new listening chair which will delivered Tuesday. The Omega 6 revue will be included in PFO and will also be a stand alone review in Higher Fidelity.  Louis cabinet work is first rate furniture work. I will reshoot these without the light on an use a Nikon D7100 with a flash to capture the real beauty of the quality of the  speakers. They are Bubinga.

Thanks for your prompt reply. When I clicked on the link to look at the speakers, what's pictured here looks different than the speakers in the link. Same as when I searched the Net...

 

They look lovely! How much for me to bring them home?

Thats the  speaker Louis built. There is nothing different than I guess the Bubinga cabinet  wood he used. The picture is the way it looks in my room. Perhaps when I put the spike in the speaker and it tips back it will look closer to Louis website.  The list is 2350.00 except this is Bubinga so I am not sure what the extra retail on it  for the exotic wood but I will ask  Louis what the retail is and let you know. They are really beautiful cabinets and they sounds as good as they look. There are sone reviews that were done on these by doe very knowledgeable reviews on his website.   Call Louis an talk with him he will work with you.

Call him he will work with you. I like the Bubinga. He just sent them to me. He built them for the reviews. LOL I love them with the 2A3 tube sin the WA234. I will swap tubes this weekend . Those are Sophia 2A3 and 274 rectifiers that sound excellent in the amplifier.  I will shoot them in the daytime this weekend.
