post #28906 of 30766

I have the WA6 and keep it on low gain with the Grado's, and usually the volume knob is between 11:00-2:00 o'clock depending on the recording. Also I just placed an order for the 6GL7/Teflon tube adapters, anyone try/have  these tubes in their WA6 and can give me some input on them, thanks.

I remember at the last meet I went to, there was a guy that listened so quietly on the HD 800s, you couldn't even hear the leakage, if you didn't know, you would of thought he had closed headphones, like absolutely zero leakage it was like almost zero volume.

With 6AS7 drivers, listening to a well-mastered (i.e. slightly soft) CD at slightly above normal volume in a noisy room, I had to crank the volume knob past 5 o'clock.

I listen at around 11 but some older classical music needs to be pushed to 1 or 2. 

 

I usually listen to jazz. For rock etc I keep it below 12 too with the HE6

With the WA6 and 325i, eleven is about right with the low impedance switch, can go higher depending on the engineering of the recording.  DT880/600 somewhat higher.

This probably isn't a big deal to those of you that got in on Ultrainferno's 596 group buy but I was pretty pleased with it. It's a fraction of the price I paid for my first one. Not advertised as NOS but looked mint when I got it and it works as it should.

got lucky i was sleeping :p, i would of bought those immediately, guy didn't know the prices and sold them way too cheap, could of easily resold and made $$$

 

it was 2 of them for that price i think, all the others lately have been selling for 200$ or so

For that price, I will sell my backup of backup of backup pair.  I was listening to the WA5LE with 596 last night, it is definitely worth it for the amount we paid.

skip the 596 and EML though if you decide to stick with WA5, max it out! ;) you can get $300+ for a 596 pair.

 

get 422A before they're gone. the 800-1000$ pairs are gone and the 400$ singles are gone too. only the taiwanese sellers that have 739$ singles are left.

 

 

theres a nice pair auction here...

these would also be very good.

you can also try a pair of http://www.upscaleaudio.com/products/Mullard-GZ32-%7B47%7D-5V4.html, they're really good and cheap too!

Hum, sell two pairs and get the WE422A?  Not a bad idea, now I need to find a pair for around $900.
