Hmmmm.... Since the last posters probably are responsible for making someone willing to pay that much, you shouldn't brag about how cheap you got yours, should you? =9

And anyway, if it is half as good as the usual crowd claims, it certainly should be worth it. It's not the most expensive tube out there, by far....

Is the mighty 596 not worth $198 in Audio Quality?

No....I love the tube, but that price is crazy. It is a cool looking 5U4G basically. It has nice low end. Better than the Jan Sylvania's I have used. Considering what you can pick up for under $20 you are basically paying for a really cool looking tube. For me it is not 10X in sound quality though.

 

Easy for me to say though since I have a pair on the shelf....:D

Right. Wanna sell? Are you suggesting I pay 20, or just slightly above for each, then? I'm awaiting your pm :P

Nice try Chris...:D

 

Since I got them for a better price I will allow them to appreciate until I decide to move them along or just burn them til they drop in the SLI-80!

Using the word "Drop" made me:tongue_smile: a bit nervous...

 

 

A few hours ago, I submitted a bid for quotes on a 20-ct & 50-ct. Let's see what my broker's been smokin'! :normal_smile :

Let me know when you have realized that you can do without them and decide to prove me wrong by letting me experience their mediocre sound ,)

any one used a 7AF7 Loctal in their Woos?

post #28839 of 30755

Yes, 7AF7 & 7N7 - WA 6 Special Edition. But the glass wasn't premium and just sounded okay.

post #28840 of 30755

I regularly use 7N7s but just was wondering about pulling some 7AF7s from the attic try. In WA6se. Sounds like it might be worth a pop.

post #28841 of 30755

Especially if you've already got 'em. I love playing around trying stuff inside the listening room. :evil: Nuthin' has gone Ka-Boom just yet!

Man, the recent prices of good tubes is really putting a damper on getting the best for the Woo amps. I'm fortunate to already own most of what I want, but I shudder to imagine how much a new amp owner would have to fork out for tubes like the 5998, GZ34 metal and TS BGRP.

I guess I'll use my affordable tubes for the month of December, just like when I first got my WA22 three years ago, and see if the magic still remains. And perhaps I'll find some combinations that sound good and are affordable as compared to the madness we are witnessing.
