have you used the Chatham 6as7g's before?

i really like them - not as murky as the RCA's. I do need to go back to the RCA's though i didn't give them enough attention. The Chatams are lovely, listening to Emerson Lake and Palmer now - sounds fantastic. oh yea - happy new year!! 

 

I got some franziskaner! Lovely wheat beer!!

I have a pair of GEC 6AS7G's on the way that I bought from Dubstep Girl. (Wanted to contribute to her car buying fund). Looking forward to comparing them to my TS5998's.

Few newbie questions from -w8 for it-yes your are correct - newbie

1.Can WA3/6 be used as desktop amp for portable device (like DX50)? I mean does it make sense, or it will be stupid spending.

2.Speaking about marginal utility (take the F book and read out what does it mean, coz it is an intersting thing :D) does it make sense to buy 6 instead of 3? What do i mean by that?

Well if 500$ thing provides you 100% of joy, will 600$ thing provide you 120 and more % of joy?

3. How much money average people spend on tubes for 3/6 ?

p.s. sry for my english

p.p.s. regards=)

The WA3 or WA6 cab be connected with a proper interconnect.   Any of our amps will work with the DX50.  

 

To answer your question regarding the differences from WA3 to WA6 would require knowing which headphones you are using. The WA6 is transformer coupled and will work with both high and low impendance headphones. The WA3 is  OTL design and works best with higher impedance headphones.  Stock tubes are included with either WA3 or WA6 and pur upgrade options are listed on our website. The tubes used for both of these amps are very inexpensive and can last up to 10000 hours.
