and then, there's DG's opinion which I concur even with my brief exposure with the GS1000.

Thank you all of you for the help.
I just ordered the HE-500 from Musicdirect. Since i switch from the 2 chanels system to headphone, i hope that i will not be dissapointed.

Different type of enjoyment.  I've found headphone to be very convenient, especially late at night.  Also, it's easier and cost less to have pretty good sound quality.  I was heavy into home theater/2 channel stuffs before and the hole in my pocket is still visible till this day.  :D

Just received the #1 option:6GL7 x2 driver tubes, plus 2 adapters from Woo for the WA6. I only tried the tubes for a couple of hrs, not sure if I like them yet, need to spend some more time with them, they seem to have a little too much bass for me, and less highs, (veiled) to me for now. When I received the amp I got the 6EW7's and the S/P rectifier tube, and right out of the box I loved the way it sounded. I know the 6EW7's/6GL7's both need to burn-in as well as the S/P, so I will probably keep the 6GL7's (I was going to return them) and let them burn-in for awhile before jumping to any conclusions.

Yup bassy tube, fun but can get muddy especially with sophia

Yeah the ad from Woo say it adds detail and smoothness, but I feel there is so much bass that it takes away from the detail and the highs IMO. I just listened to them with my 80i's and they sounded nice together, then again the 80i's sound nice to me no matter what you throw at them. Later I'm going to do more listening with these tubes and the RS's. I haven't listened to the 325's with the WA6 at all yet, so I have some listening to do tonight with some different combos.

At some point - after the initial ice cream & cake listening session - make a selection and stick with it for 21 days and then switch 'em out.

I'm going to listen with these tubes tonight, and for as long as I can before the return policy expires, but right off the bat with the RS's the bass veils everything, but they may be keepers just for the 80i's.

I have been looking at 6C19 for a DIY project and came across the 4 from Woo. I have three Woo here (22, 2, 6se). Any comments on how the 4 fits into this brigade...never heard a 4.
